Rainbow pizza

Method

For the dough

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350° F) set to fan and add 2 large baking pans inside, upside-down, to get very hot.
  • With a knife, cut the cauliflower into florets without using the large stem.
  • Process the cauliflower florets in a food processor, until they look like rice, and add them into a bowl.
  • Beat the eggs lightly into a deep plate and add them into the bowl with the cauliflower. 
  • Add the almond powder and the grated parmesan.
  • Season with salt and pepper and mix the mixture with your hands, until homogenized (the mixture will be quite liquid).
  • Place 2 large pieces of parchment paper on your working surface. 
  • Divide the cauliflower mixture into 4 and spread 2 portions of the mixture on each parchment paper, shaping circles 16 cm in diameter and 5 mm thick.
  • Carefully place the parchment paper with the pizza crusts on the upside-down baking pans that are in the oven.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until they are nicely golden and set.
  • Remove the pizzas from the oven.

For the filling

  • Divide the tomato sauce over each pizza crust. Sprinkle with the mozzarella and bake for 5 minutes until the mozzarella lightly melts. 
  • Remove the pizzas from the oven. 
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, or into 4 in case they are large, and add them into a bowl. 
  • Cut the peppers into 1 cm cubes and add them to the bowl. 
  • Finely chop the onions and add them to the bowl. 
  • Cut the cauliflower into small florets, the radicchio into thin slices, and add them to the bowl with the remaining ingredients. 
  • Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, and mix.
  • Decorate the pizzas by placing each vegetable all over their surface. 
  • Transfer the pizzas on 2 pieces of parchment paper and place them on the upside-down baking pans that you’ve already used. 
  • Put the baking pans back into the oven and bake for another 10 minutes, until the vegetables are slightly tender but not brown. 
  • Remove the baking pans from the oven, cut into pieces, and serve.
