A convenient, quick, low-cost way to whip up a yummy cauliflower pizza (or flatbread) for one. Buy inexpensive frozen cauliflower when on sale and thaw as needed to make a single crust. Uses just a few ingredients I always have on hand. The seeds are carried in the health section of grocery stores, even in my small town. You could leave them out, but I recommend them for added nutrition-especially iron, fiber, and protein.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cover a pizza pan with parchment paper.
Pour frozen cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in the microwave until just thawed, about 1 minute. Place cauliflower in the middle of a thin cloth napkin; twist and squeeze repeatedly to wring out as much moisture as possible. Transfer cauliflower to a food processor. Process until crumbled. Return to the cloth napkin and repeat twisting and squeezing. Transfer cauliflower pulp to a mixing bowl.
Add egg, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, seed blend, basil, garlic powder, and salt to the bowl with the pulp and stir together. Turn mixture out onto the center of the prepared pizza pan. Form into a ball, then use palms of hands to gradually press into a flat 8-inch circle. Use fingertips to create a smooth, slightly thicker outer edge.
Bake in the preheated oven on the center rack until top begins to turn golden brown, 16 to 17 minutes. Remove from oven and use a spatula to loosen paper. Flip crust and return to oven until golden, 5 to 6 minutes more.
Combine olive oil, garlic, basil, and salt in a bowl. Spread sauce on top of baked crust. Top sauce with mozzarella cheese, bruschetta sauce, and feta cheese. Return pizza to the oven until cheese is bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes more.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To made this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
