Ingredients

  • 1 CAULIPOWER cauliflower pizza crust
  • 2 tbsp pesto -use your favourite
  • 100 g fresh mozzarella -thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper -cut into strips and patted dry
  • 2 tbsp black olives -sliced
  • 2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes -sliced
  • 2 tbsp marinated artichokes -roughly chopped
  • 6-8 slices red onion -thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes -or to taste (optional)
  • 1/3 cup feta -crumbled
  • fresh basil -optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.  Spread pesto over CAULIPOWER cauliflower pizza crust.
  • Top pesto with mozzarella slices.
  • Next, distribute red pepper, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes and red onion over cheese. Sprinkle with crumbled feta. Bake on a baking sheet on middle rack for 12-14 minutes.  
  • Carefully remove from oven, top with chili flakes (if using). Cut and enjoy!

Notes

  • Keep the pizza crust frozen until ready to use.
  • Don't have fresh mozzarella? No worries! Use a quality shredded mozzarella (aka pizza mozzarella)
  • I used sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil (not the dry packed ones) and drained .  That's what I enjoy and recommend.
  • Ensure that your 'wet' ingredients like red pepper, olives, sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke are patted dry before adding to the pizza.  You want a nice-n-crispy crust!
  • Use as much chili flakes as you like! Like it spicy? Add more. Not into spice? Omit or add less. You do you! Make it your pizza.
  • The quantities of toppings used for this pizza is basically a guide.  If you don't have all of the ingredients on hand or like less (or more) of something, adjust to your tastes.
  • Can't find the cauliflower pizza crust in your area just yet?  Use your favourite pizza crust.
