Servings 6 people
- 1 2 lb head of cauliflower cut into florets
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 2 tsp natural cocoa powder
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 tbsp honey
- Pinch salt, cinnamon and nutmeg pinch of each
- 3 tbsp natural almond butter
- 1 oz dark chocolate finely chopped
- 1/4 cup banana sliced
- 1/4 cup strawberries sliced
- 1 tbsp shaved coconut toasted
- 1 tbsp almond slices toasted
- Honey if desired
Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or nonstick mat.
Put your cauliflower into a food processor and pulse until it breaks up into small pieces that resemble rice.
Measure out 3 cups and transfer to a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Allow to cool, then squeeze the moisture out of the cauliflower rice.
To the cauliflower, mix in the almond flour, cocoa powder, egg, honey, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Roll into a ball, then press into a round pizza crust, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the centre is dry and the edges begin to brown.
In a small microwave safe bowl, heat the almond butter in 30 second increments, stirring between each time, until soft and very smooth.
In another small microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate shavings and microwave on high for 30 second increments, stirring between each time, until melted and smooth.
Spread the almond butter onto the crust, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the outsides. Top with the sliced fruit, almonds and coconut.
Dip a fork into the melted chocolate and drizzle it over the pizza. If you want to make the pizza sweeter, add a little drizzle of honey on top. Cut into slices using kitchen scissors, and enjoy at room temperature.
