La dolce vita remains “bella” in this case, when we substitute the high carb pizza crust by our healthy and delicious alternative that still holds up well enough to be eaten in your hands in front of your favorite movie, just the way you love it!

This recipe is not only delicious, it is also very easy and fun to make, gluten free, grain free, soy free and low carb! Here is what you need to do step by step:

2. Preheat your oven to 220 degrees (425 fahrenheit).

3. Take a head of cauliflower and chop it up into small pieces. Steam them up so you remain the vitamins or cook them for about 12 minutes with a small amount of water and put the lid on top of the pot (so you steam it too in a way). Make sure the cauliflower does not burn. Let it turn softly, so you can smash it up easily into a cauliflower puree. You can use a food processor or mash the hell out of it with a fork.

4. Take yourself a non-stick pan and grease it with coconut oil. olive oil or some cooking spray.

5. Mix the cauliflower puree with the cheese, eggs, coconut flour and seasonal pizza spices. (Note this ratio: 1 cup cauliflower/1 cup cheese/1 egg)

6. Spread the mix out on the pan and bake for 17 minutes into the preheated oven (220 degrees/245 fahrenheit).

7. While the crust is in the oven, you can start to get some fun by preparing the toppings for your pizza. You can choose whatever you like as a topping: tomato sauce, pesto, mushroom, ham or chicken, sun-dried tomato, olives, peppers,… create your favorite pizza! You can put a bit extra cheese on top, but by preference chose low-fat cheese!

8. Bake at 175 degrees/350 fahrenheit, but always keep an eye on it! As soon as the cheese has melted, you can attack!

9. Cut yourself a delicious slice and ALMOST surrender biting into that delicious topping point… mmm delicious…but first: don’t forget to take a piccie and mail it to me to let us enjoy it with you! Okay, you can bite it now!! ENJOY!
