Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Cut and wash the cauliflower and use a mixer or food processor to ground the cauliflower into rice cauliflower.
  3. Put the grounded cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl, cover the bowl and place into the microwave for 6 minutes. Let the cauliflower cool down.
  4. Then use either a clean dish tower or some cheese cloth to drain the water from the cauliflower. Remove as much water as you can from the cauliflower by pressing the cauliflower in the tissue.
  5. Using the same bowl as before, stir the two eggs, the cheddar, the Parmesan and the Italian herbs. Add salt and pepper.
  6. Add the drained cauliflower to the bowl and stir to make the paste homogeneous.
  7. Prepare a baking paper that will go to the oven and put 2 table spoons of olive oil on it. Use your fingers to spread the oil to cover entirely the baking paper.
  8. Spread the cauliflower paste on the paper and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
  9. In the meantime, in a pan, add some oil, and cook the capsicum and pumpkin finely sliced. Add after 5 minutes the mushroom and cook another 5 minutes. If you are using bacon, cook the bacon with the vegetables.
  10. Remove the crust from the oven, and top with the tomato sauce. Add the ham (or cooked bacon) cut into pieces, the pumpkin, capsicum and mushroom, the spinach leave, the slices Bocconcini, the cherry tomatoes cut in half.
  11. Cover with the Cheddar and the Parmesan cheese, and spray on top of it some Italian herbs, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (or chili powder).
  12. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  13. Cut in 8 portions. And voila!
