Cauliflower Pizza with Chickpeas and Burrata – Roasted chickpeas and Burrata on a Cauliflower Pizza base makes for a delicious lunch.
Heyyyyyy! I hope you are all well! I wanted to drop a quick post whilst my daughter plays with my hair because its been a few days since my last post. Maryam is currently combing it whilst giving me advice about how I should style it (She is 5). She has combed it 5 times in the last 10 minutes. I know she will be back any minute/second now.
So this Cauliflower Pizza with Chickpeas and Burrata came about because I have previously made a cauliflower base pizza (pics below) and although it was delicious, it wasn’t something I would think about making again.
So I thought about how I could make it more me. So instead of thinking it as a pizza base and thinking about just pizza toppings, I thought I would think of it more like roast veg and think of what else I could enjoy it with. I incorporated flavours that I liked and I enjoyed it very much.
Anyhow, moving on from the Cauliflower Pizza with Chickpeas and Burrata! So recently I have been going though a lot of ups and downs with my feelings. By recently I mean in the last couple of weeks. I know that in many cases this is part and parcel of Ramadan (written during Ramadan) because most people are experiencing a detox. So i started to do a lot of self exploration and thinking about the things that were happening around me and what I needed to learn from those experiences.
It basically led me to writing down exactly what I want from my life. I have done this several times already but this time it was different. So I will be sharing some stuff with you soon around self love and development. I will be tying that in with my studies and so there will be topics covered that include things like sleep, environment and elimination (so glamorous I know). I will be doing a series on each of those things and more and I can’t wait to share it all with you!!!! EEEEEEKKK. I have an updated post about that here.
Anyway guys, I hope you try this recipe especially if you haven’t tried a cauliflower pizza base before. I hope it will be a pleasant surprise!
