Vegan Paleo Pizza

1 lb thawed frozen cauliflower florets

4 tbsp ground golden flax seeds (substitute brown flax if desired)

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

2 garlic cloves, finely minced

1 cup raw cashews

1/3 cup nutritional yeast

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

3 cups baby spinach leaves

1/2 cup quartered or chopped Kalamata olives

1/4 cup red bell pepper (optional)

1/4 cup chopped basil

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

2. Mix half the flax with 6 tbsp of water and set aside. Spread cauliflower on layers of paper toweling or clean dish cloths: roll up to squeeze out as much excess water as possible. Transfer to a food processor. Add flax and water mixture. Add remaining ground flax, almond flour, salt, and pepper. Process to form a thick dough. 

3. Spread on prepared baking sheet, using your hands to form a rectangle or circle. Bake for 12 minutes until set and golden. 

4. While crust is baking, make "cheese": combine cashews, yeast, coconut oil, salt, and garlic powder in a food processor and process until finely ground. Set aside. 

5. Removed cooked crust from oven and layer with onion, garlic, spinach, olives, basil, and "cheese". Return to oven for 7 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
