  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to180°C.
  2. Wash the cauliflower and cut into cubes. Place in a food processor and blend until pureed.
  3. Place the cauliflower into a tea towel and over the sink squeeze all the water out, put aside.
  4. Place the remaining ingredients in a bowl and combine.
  5. Squeeze the cauliflower for a second time to remove any excess water and add to the remaining ingredients. Combine well.
  6. On a piece of baking paper spread the dough out into an even circle. Try to keep the dough around 1.5 cm thick to avoid it from cracking once cooked.
