For the pizza crust:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 50g parmesan cheese, grated

For the pesto:

  • 30g rocket

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 200°C / 180°C Fan / Gas Mark 6. Cut the cauliflower into florets and blend in a food processor to create cauliflower rice.
  2. Pour the cauliflower rice into a clean tea towel and squeeze all the liquid out, then tip out into a bowl and mix in the egg, oregano, salt, garlic and parmesan. Spread evenly over a baking sheet and shape into a circle, then bake for 30-40 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the pesto by blending together the rocket, pine nuts, olive oil and parmesan until you have a smooth paste.
  4. Top the pizza base with the pesto, slices of mozzarella and salad leaves.
