Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:30 mins
Total Time:40 mins
1 large head of cauliflower
2 eggs, free range
21/2 cups of dairy free cheese
3 tsp oregano
1 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp basil
1 tbsp garlic granules
1/4 tsp himalayan pink salt
Preheat oven to 400f/200C/gas mark 6.
Prepare a rectangular baking tray (about 36cm) with parchment paper.
Roughly chop the cauliflower into small florets. Then add the florets to the food processor fitted with an S blade and pulse until the cauliflower resembles rice.
Place the cauliflower rice in a non stick medium sized saucepan. Begin to steam the rice on low-medium heat for 5-7 minutes, covered. Throughout this time carefully manoeuvre the rice so it softens evenly.
Once steamed transfer the cauliflower in a large bowl adding the eggs, 1/2 cup of cheese, herbs, garlic, salt. Ensure everything is thoroughly combined.
Spread the herbaceous base on to the parchment paper and shape it into a rectangular crust.
Bake the crust for about 30 minutes or until golden. Half way through cooking the base, carefully flip the crust over so both sides are evenly cooked/golden.
Once golden, sprinkle with the leftover dairy free cheese and put back in the oven for a further 5-7 minutes until the cheese looks somewhat melted.
