The Atkins Cauliflower Crust Pizza a typical low carb dish. Not only is this a healthy and delicious dish, it also looks fabulous!
Carbs per serving:
400 g. cauliflower
3 tbsp parmesan cheese
50 g. pumpkin
1 onion, fresh, med
1 tbsp shallots
100 g. mozzarella cheese
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp crushed red chilli flakes
200 g. chicken breast diced grilled
Preheat a conventional oven to 210C, or fan oven to 230C.
Place cauliflower in a food processor and process until fine, cover and microwave on high for 10 minutes, or until very tender. Drain through a fine sifter, pressing down well with a wooden spoon to remove excess liquid. Lightly whisk the egg. In a bowl combine the cauliflower, half the parmesan, and the egg.
Line a 30cm round pizza tray with baking paper. Spread cauliflower mixture evenly around the tray, pressing in firmly. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
Place the cubed pumpkin in a microwave container, and microwave on high for 5-7 minutes, or until soft. Mash or food process the pumpkin, mix in finely chopped tomato; add the salt, pepper, and chili flakes (optional).
Once the cauliflower base is out of the oven, evenly spread pumpkin mixture. Top with mozzarella, shredded chicken, capsicum, onion, shallots, and the remaining tomatoes. Sprinkle over remaining parmesan cheese, and place back in the oven for around 7 minutes, or cheese is melted.
