1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

2. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.

4. Place the cauliflower in a bowl and mix with the cream cheese and egg. Season well.

5. With clean hands, divide the mixture into four portions and shape on the lined baking tray to make a 1-1½ cm thick pizza base. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm and golden.

6. Add a dollop of the tomato sauce and toppings of your choice to the cauliflower pizza base. Bake for about 10 minutes.
