Homemade spicy pork sausage meat, simple tomato sauce, cauliflower base, fried egg and cashew cream on top…breakfast’s don’t get much better than this!
I love pizza, I love pork and I love eggs..especially fried eggs; a gooey drippy runny bright yellow yolk is a must, mingling with whatever gets in it’s runaway path.
I don’t buy sausages…buying grain free ones without a load of preservatives and fillers here is pretty much impossible. I would LOVE to have the necessary equipment to make my own..but for the time being I’m happy to create my own faux pork sausage meat for crumbling over whatever I please.
Namely pizza’s…this epic breakfast pizza. The cauliflower base was probably the best one I’ve ever made owing to me having removed as much water as is humanly possible from the cauliflower having cooked it for a good 8 minutes. With the joy of the cauliflower fritters still at the front of my mind I knew it would be totally worth the effort.
I’m making my way through a second batch of cashew cream, the first well and truly devoured. It’s such a great dip, drizzle or side for pretty much everything. Spicy “mayo”, chipotle cheese and sour cream…or merely a delightfully creamy addition to a cheese less pizza!
A pick up able pizza slice, freshly made for breakfast, as divine warm as it is cold…I was one happy camper after having had this as my first meal of the day.
Leftover pizza sauce stashed in the fridge for zucchini noodle snacks and sides..or maybe I should go all out and make myself some meatballs…
If you’re more of a fishy fan be sure to check out my smoked salmon pizza…a real treat! Smoked salmon is one of life’s little luxuries that never fails to delight…I’d possibly add a poached egg to that pizza if I were to give it remake! Is there anything an egg on top can’t make ever better?!
I dug in to that freshly cut warm slice of deliciousness as soon as I flicked the camera off. The rest was devoured cold after the clean up. I’m on a cold food kick at the moment. By no means chilled, but most definitely not hot, and I’ve found the flavour of food is much more intense.
I’m calling it a breakfast pizza but it would be equally as heavenly any time of the day, lunch, dinner, a slice as a mighty fine and dandy snack!? It’s the weekend, grant yourself a pizza night!
What’s your favourite pizza topping outside of the usual tomato sauce and cheese!?

For the Base
Place cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl. Heat on high for 8 minutes.
Remove and strain to fine sieve, squeezing out the excess water. Set aside in a bowl. Over a bowl (just in case you drop it) squeeze out even more water using you hands. Take small amounts of the cauliflower at a time and squeeze between your palms!
Mix cauliflower rice with all other crust ingredients.
Preheat oven to 180C (350F).
Place cauliflower mix on a baking tray lined with non stick baking parchment greased with a little coconut oil to be sure it doesn’t stick!
Press down and form a 10 inch round or desired shape, molding the sides if you want a thicker edge. Fill in any cracks ensuring it’s smooth before placing in the oven. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until browned and starting to lift from the tray around the edges. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before gently sliding out on a plate or serving board.
For the Meat
Mix together all meat ingredients. You can do this in advance, up to the night before. Saute in a non stick pan with a drop of coconut oil for 5-8 minutes, breaking it up a little as you go. Fry your egg in the same pan once the meat is cooked and set aside.
For the Sauce
Mix together sauce ingredients. Spread over the pizza base.
Spread sauce over pizza, fried egg in the middle, sprinkle with meat and dollop over some cashew cream. Garnish with rocket and fresh basil.
If desired you can heat the sauce and cashew cream before putting the pizza together.
