VeganMoFo2012 Day 15: Cauliflower Crust Pizza

It's Day 15! That means we're half way through VeganMoFo - woo! Today I have another VeganMoFo-inspired post thanks to Richa! Two weeks ago I made her mung bean pizza crust and yesterday I tried another of her pizza crusts.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust topped with Cucumber

Richa called this a deconstructed gobi paratha but I haven't ever had those before, I just knew her pizza once again looked amazing and I had half a cauli needing to be used up!

Richa's recipes are often gluten and soy free so I didn't have to make any major changes. My cauli half was quite large and I used two small potatoes instead of one medium and I added a couple more tablespoons of chickpea flour because the mixture was too wet to form into a ball. I baked it on parchment paper on top of our pizza stone.

I had to bake mine a lot longer as well, I think I made it too thick to begin with because the middle was soft for ages, I think it was in the oven for almost an hour but it got there eventually!

I topped the pizza with a brown onion rather than red and I used some soy free vegan mayo in place of the raita as there is no plain, vegan, gluten and soy free yoghurt available here.

This was delicious, I liked the addition of raw toppings, it felt more summery and I served it with watercress because we got a bunch in the veg box this week.

If you're looking for a creative new way to use up cauliflower, try Richa's cauli pizza crust!

You're in the future! I have to wait until tomorrow to start celebrating being halfway through MoFo! I feel like it's been less stressful than last year, I'm glad I decided not to do the cookbook challenge for a whole week straight this time! I love the look of your pizza crust, I always stick to the same old wheat flour base but I'll definitely try something like this next summer.

It looks so crispy and tasty! I love how versatile cauliflower is. Happy half-way-through-MoFo day! :D

Mihl said...

Wow, I've several pizza recipes made with cauliflower based crust recently. Those people must be up to something! Your version looks gorgeous!

Richa said...

Super awesome! Thanks for tryingn it out mandee! So glad you liked it! I love that fat crust. That definitely would take longer. Depends on the cauliflower too . Sometimes they just have too much moisture:).
Cukes and mayo I am sure taste awesome on it!

I have a good experience of eating varieties of Pizza. My Favorite one is Best Pizza in Melbourne. Your Cauliflower Pizza is also attracting me much.

Ahh, the cauliflower crust is another thing I've seen floating around the interwebz and have been meaning to try. It's just not one of those veggies I have lying around my fridge though - I'll have to make a conscious effort to pick some up!

Fanny said...

I have yet to try a cauliflower crust pizza, but yours looks fab for sure!

My Photo
Sydney, NSW, Australia
I went vegan in 2006 and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love baking cupcakes and reading books and often wish I could combine both activities without disastrous results. If I’m not in the kitchen you’ll find me photographing food, cuddling my three kittehs or re-watching my favourite tv shows over and over again with my boyfriend. Due to food sensitivities I don't eat gluten or soy and yes, vegan, gluten free and soy free food is still delicious! Twitter: CupcakeKitteh
