Cauliflower pizza with spinach and egg

Cauliflower pizza with spinach and egg
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep: 15mins
  • Cook: 40mins

Ingredients

  • For the base...
  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herbs
  • 3 medium British Lion eggs
  • To top...
  • 125ml tomato passata
  • 125g mozzarella
  • 100g bag baby spinach
  • 2 medium British Lion eggs

Method

  1. Break the cauliflower into florets. Place in a food processor (you might have to do this in batches) and whizz until the cauliflower resembles couscous.
  2. Place the cauliflower into a bowl, cover with cling film and microwave on high for four minutes, until soft. Leave to cool, then place into a clean tea towel and wring out as much moisture as possible.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180 fan / gas mark 6. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the cauliflower into a clean bowl, add the ground almonds, dried herbs, eggs and season generously. Mix well until combined, then divide into two and place each half onto the lined baking sheet.
  4. Using your hands, shape each half into a circle, about one centimeter thick, and slightly thicker around the edge. Bake in the oven for twenty-five minutes, until golden and starting to crisp.
  5. Meanwhile microwave the spinach in its bag for two minutes. Leave to cool slightly, then squeeze out any excess moisture.
  6. Remove the cauliflower bases from the oven and spread the tomato passata on top. Tear the mozzarella and place on top.
  7. Place the pizzas back into the oven for about five minutes, so that the mozzarella melts. Then crack the egg into the middle of the pizza and add the spinach.
  8. Place back into the oven for a further 7-9 minutes, until the egg is set.
  9. Season lightly with salt and pepper and serve.

Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
