Cauliflower and Cashew Pizza

Makes: 1 x 8" pizza

Ingredients

½ medium cauliflower, approx 450g

2tbsp Meridian Smooth Cashew Butter

¼ tsp dried oregano

¼ tsp ground garlic powder

5 tbsp of your choice of tomato sauce pizza topping

150g jar antipasti roast vegetables

Few basil leaves and shavings of parmesan (or dairy free alternative) to serve

Method

Preheat oven to 200c/180C Fan. Whiz the cauliflower florets in a blender until they resemble rice. Tip the cauli into a muslin or thin tea towel and squeeze, hard, several times to extract as much water as possible

Return to the blender, add the cashew butter, oregano and garlic powder, season and blend again until combined into a dough.

Line an oven tray with non-stick baking paper . Tip the dough onto the tray and shape it into a circle approximately 8” wide.  Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Carefully run a pallet knife under the base to loosen from greaseproof paper.

Spread with the tomato sauce return to the oven for 2 minutes. Drain the antipasti vegetables from their oil and quickly pat dry with some kitchen roll. Scatter the vegetables over the pizza along with a few basil leaves and parmesan shavings.

Notes: Use a shop bought jar of pizza sauce to save time and freeze any leftovers for your next pizza.
