Method

  • 1
    Process cauliflower in a food processor until very finely chopped (you’ll need 4 cups in total). Place in a microwave-safe bowl. Add 2 tablespoons water. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 8 minutes or until tender. Transfer cauliflower to a large sieve. Drain, pressing cauliflower with the back of a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible. Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Cool for 15 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper.
  • 3
    Add egg, almond meal, pizza cheese and dried herbs to cauliflower. Season well with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions. Place 2 portions onto each prepared tray. Flatten each portion to form a 15cm circle, making the sides a little thicker to form the crust.
  • 4
    Bake bases for 15 minutes or until golden.

    Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook pumpkin, turning, for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and tender.
  • 6
    Spread bases with passata. Sprinkle with extra pizza cheese. Top with pumpkin, prosciutto and ricotta. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with basil. Serve immediately.
