Paleo Thermomix Cauliflower Pizza Base

I had been looking at cauliflower pizza base recipes for a while and I have finally made one in the Thermy….so without any further delay

Ingredients:

  •  1/2 a head of cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 50 g of good quality mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tspn of dried oregano or herb of your choice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method

Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C

Break the cauliflower head into florets and put into the TM bowl – on closed lid pulse on Tubro 2-3 times till cauliflower resembles crumbs

Place the cauli crumbs in a microwave safe bowl with a lid and microwave on HIGH for 6-8 min (depending on the power of your microwave) – there is no need to add water

Allow to cool on the bench for 5 mins or so.

Add the cauli crumbs back to the TM bowl and add remaining ingredients – on closed lid Knead for 10-15 secs to incorporate ingredients – you may have to scrape down sides of bowl mid way through.

Spread mix out onto a baking tray that is lined with baking paper – I used my Simply Magic liner for this. I made 2 medium pizzas with this batch.

Cook for approx 10 min until golden.

Then top with your favourite toppings and cook.

For my first pizza I topped it with passata, home grown basil and mozzarella.

The second pizza I topped with caramelised onion and roast lamb topping – which I will post the recipe for shortly 😀

Paleo Diet Meal Plan and Recipes – Week 1

A few of my friends are wondering what I eat on a daily basis so I thought I would post what I ate last week and links to recipes etc. Some of these recipes can be made in advance and/or frozen.

MONDAY:

Breakfast – Fried bacon and egg on baby spinach and baby rocket with chives

Lunch – Easy Tandoori Chicken from Nom Nom Paleo with Salad – I prepped this the night before as I work on Mondays – so all I had to do was come home and just grill it. I quickly fried one piece up for my lunch that morning

Dinner –  Remainder of the Tandoori Chicken with Cauliflower rice for me (the rest of the family have plain boiled rice)

Apple and Cinnamon Scrolls – Thermomix

My kids love my cheesymite scrolls but on the weekend I ran out of cheese so I had half a batch of dough left to do something with. So I decided to experiment with some Apple and Cinnamon Scrolls.

I have now started using the plain white  bread roll Thermomix recipe from the Thermomix forum:

Ingredients

520g white flour
2 teasp. dried yeast.
300mls. warm water
1 teaspoon each of sugar and salt

Directions

  • Place in bowl, knead for 4 mins
  • Leave in bowl until double
  • Turn out on a floured bench and roll out until about 1-2 cms thick.
  • Grate 1-2 green apples over the top of the dough
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar

  • Roll up into a log and then cut into 2-3 cm slices and place on a baking tray
  • Leave sit to prove for half an hour.
  • Sprinkle tops with a little brown sugar and place in oven for 10-15 mins on 200 deg.

I did have plans to take a  nicer photo at the end but they didn’t last very long!

It has now got me thinking of other filling combinations. I have tried bacon, onion and cheese and that has worked well also….hmmmm what next?
