Comfort food is always a pleasure and much needed to feel better no matter the situation. But normally we associate comfort with junk and that just not need to be the case. Moreover, since i started a no-grains regime i still want my pizzas and so, what better than a base that does not include any? Here it is!
1 medium cauliflower head
4 spoons chia seeds with water (approximately 1 cup)
1 cup almond flour
2 garlic cloves
Vegetables of choice (courgettes, spinach, red pepper and rocket)
3 spoons nutritional yeast
Herbs of choice (i used oregano)
Pre-heat the oven at 200 degrees celsius
Steam the cauliflower florets
Meanwhile add water to the chia seeds and let sit to become egg-like.
Once steamed, place in a kitchen towel and drain the excess water
Place in food processor and mince the florets then place them in the towel again for extra water draining
Once the excess water has been drained, place in the food processor.
Add chia and almond flower and mix altogether to become like dough.
Meanwhile grease an oven tray with coconut oil
Distribute the dough on the tray, add olive oil and crushed garlic, sea salt and oregano and place in the oven for 20 minutes or until brown
Chop and prepare vegetables as best wished.
Remove pizza from oven and spread the tomato paste on base, top with vegetables (except rocket), nutritional yeast, herbs and salt and place in the oven for an extra 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and add fresh rocket and get ready to enjoy healthy, vegan comfort food!
