Cauliflower Pizza, Von Shef 750W Food Processor Review And Competition Ends 16/09

Cauliflower pizza is a modern alternative to traditional pizza for those that want to cut down on their carbs. I was intrigued to how it would taste so I decided to give it a go. There are a few different versions of this recipe, so this is my take on cauliflower pizza.

Now one thing you really need to rice the cauliflower is a food processor, so I thought this was the perfect chance to try out my new Von Shef 750W food processor which was gifted to me for an honest review.

My initial thought on the food processor is that the black matt finish is really smart. My kitchen is black and white and it fits in perfectly with the decor. The second thing that is that it has suckers on the bottom of the food processor so it stays put when you use it and won't move at all. 


So I decided to make my first recipe with the Von Shef food processor, this cauliflower pizza recipe below. I've seen this recipe all lover the Internet so I thought I would try it.

Cauliflower Pizza Recipe




Ingredients

1 medium cauliflower
2 eggs
2 tablespoons parmesan
3 tablespoons mozzarella plus extra for topping
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 garlic cloves finely minced
any of your desired toppings

Method


1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade or 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Cut the cauliflower up into florets, discard the stalk and the green leaves.

3. Put the cauliflower in the food processor with an S blade, and use the pulse setting until it resembles rice. You will probably need to do this in 2 or 3 batches. If you do not have a food processor you will need to chop it very finely.



4. Put the riced cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes, on high, stir then microwave for another 3 minutes.
5. Get a tray and line it with paper kitchen towels. Turn out the cauliflower onto the towels then cover with more and leave for 5 minutes to absorb the moisture.
6. Transfer the cauliflower into a mixing bowl.
7. Stir in basil, oregano, minced garlic, eggs, parmesan and mozzarella.
8. Line a pizza tray with greaseproof paper.
9. Turn out the cauliflower mix onto the lined pizza tray.
10. Take a clean hand and pat down the mixture firmly onto the tray.
11. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.





12. Remove from the oven, then top with your favourite toppings. I used pepperoni, red pepper, basil and mozzarella.
13. Bake for another 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.




The finished pizza has a great flavour and definitely tastes like a 'proper' pizza. The base, however, is not crispy or doughy so it can take a little getting used to. If you are looking to cut down on carbs or avoid gluten this cauliflower pizza is a great alternative to a traditional pizza.


My thoughts on the Von Shef 750W food processor


What I liked about the Von Shef 750W food processor is the decent size of the bowl, which is 2 litres and the blending jar is 1.8 litres. Both of these are the perfect size for a couple or small family. The bowls are made of plastic which are lightweight and easy to clean.

It has two-speed settings and also a pulse function so you can use it in short bursts. Useful when you don't want to over process a mixture. The chute is large and perfect for adding extra ingredients slowly, such as oil to make mayonnaise.



The number of attachments made it great value for money, as it comes with a stainless steel chopper blade, grater and shredder, a citrus juicing attachment, an emulsifying disc for whipping cream and a plastic dough blade. I used the chopper blade to shred the cauliflower for this recipe and it was done in a matter of seconds. The blade is very sharp and comes with plastic guards so be careful when attaching the blade to the food processor. 

A safety feature that is standard with most food processors, is that the bowl has to be closed properly for it to work. 

The food processor was easy to clean, but water got into the handle so be aware of that when you wash it, and dry thoroughly. It is dishwasher safe too so that is a big plus point for most people these days. 



I think the Von Shef 750W food processor is great value for money and powerful enough to cope with everything you would want a food processor to do. I look forward to trying out the Von Shef food processor more in the near future so be sure to keep an eye on my blog for more food processor recipes.  I also have some good news for my readers too, you can win one today!
