  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees, line large baking sheet with baking paper and generously grease paper with olive oil.
  2. In small batches pulse cauliflower until rice-like in food processor, and microwave the cauliflower for 7 minutes. Lay riced cauliflower on a clean tea towel. Let it cool for a few minutes, then pat dry and try and squeeze as much liquid out of cauliflower as you can.
  3. Place 1 cup of the mozzarella into a medium mixing bowl and add in the riced cauliflower. Beat two eggs and add to the bowl, along with chopped garlic, dried basil and pepper, mixing well.
  4. Place mixture onto baking paper and press into a round pizza base shape.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
  6. Remove from heat and allow to rest for about 10 minutes prior to adding your toppings
  7. Bake in 190 degree oven once topped for an additional 10-15 minutes or until pizza gets bubbly.

Note: You can use any topping you like on the pizza as the base accommodates a huge range of flavours. This pizza base can also be pre-made hours in before meal time: once the base has been baked, simply cover with cling wrap and refrigerate until you’re ready to put on your toppings and cook.
