Low carb cauliflower flax crust pizza

20131026-171530.jpg

4 dl grated cauliflower
1/2-1dl flax seed flour
2 tbsp hamp seed flour (very low carb, but can be excludedl)
2 eggs
1 dl grated regular cheese or Parmesan
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1-4 tsp herbs de Provence
1/2 tsp salt

I used a food processor to grate the cauliflower (but a regular grater works fine), to make the cauliflower rice. Microwave or heat/fry the cauliflower rice to rid some of the water, transfer to a bole and drizzle over the dry ingredients the cheese and then mix in the two eggs. Blend thoroughly and transfer to a baking paper and flatten as much as possible. Bake in the oven at high temperature for 10 minutes, then at lower temperature until goldenish crusty.
I used regular tomato pure spread, seasoned this with garlic powder, italian dried herbs, a little salt and a pinch of chilli, a pinch of stevia (for just a little sweetness) and topped this with cooked veggies like red bell peppers and mushrooms, red onion, topped off with thin salami slices and grated cheese. Bake again until the cheese has melted.
If you don’t want to ruin the crust a trick is to spread a very thin layer of oil directly in the crust when baked and after this add the tomato purée and topping. That way the water in the purée wont penetrate the crust.
