  • Heat up 250 ml of water and add yeast to it along with some sugar to activate it. Sift 3 cups of flour in a bowl to make sure that there are no lumps. Add a pinch of salt, olive oil and foamy yeast and fold the mixture.
  • Add more flour to the mixture to give it the shape of dough and start kneading it with dry flour. Cover the dough with a cloth and let it rise to twice its current size. This should not take more than half an hour.
  • Boil cauliflower in a pot until it is fork-tender, drain the water and wait for the cauliflower to cool down a little bit and then crush it in a high-speed blender along with nutritional yeast, salt, tapioca flour and almond milk. Blend it until you get a smooth consistency.
  • Empty the contents of the high-speed blender into a pot and heat it on medium flame and stir consistently.
  • Season the regular pasta sauce with garlic powder, parsley, oregano and red pepper flakes.
  • Spread the dough evenly on a pizza pan after greasing it with olive oil. Fold up the extra sides, pop it in the oven at 450 F for 7 minutes to cook the crust, spread the tomato sauce, slather the cheese as much you like and then bake it in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 450 F. You can also add some corns, or any chopped vegetables as per your preference. Garnish it with some parsley and you are good to go.
