Cauliflower Crust Pizza with Colourful Veggies

I had this beautiful whole cauliflower staring at me for a good 10mins hmm what to make with you?? I only had a short time to prepare something before I did the school run so I had to think fast. I had some ideas come to mind vegetable curry, cauliflower rice, even what’s been trending at the moment baked whole cauliflower.

Prep veggies

With only minutes to decide I went for a quick cauli crust pizza base. As it was something I could quickly whip up prepare veggies and bake when I got home from the afternoon rush.

Top with you favourite veggies, cook for 15-20mins

It is super fast only takes 15 mins in the oven once topped so perfect for those days when time gets the better of you. My kids turn their nose up at cauliflower so this was an adults meal for us instead I had some bakery prepared pizza bases from our local bakery and they enjoyed topping theirs for themselves.

So pizza night was still enjoyed by all!
