Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 220C (200C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Place the chopped cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and cover with cling film. Microwave on high for 8-10 minutes or until soft. Leave to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the cooled cauliflower, egg, oregano, garlic, cheese salt and pepper together until well combined.
  4. Place the mixture onto the prepared tray and pat into a round shape that is approximately 1cm thick.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the base is golden.
  6. Meanwhile, heat non-stick fry pan over medium-high heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray and add the asparagus spears. Cook for 5-10 minutes or until asparagus is browned and tender. Set aside.
  7. To make the basil pesto, blend the pine nuts, basil leaves and oil together to make a paste. Add a small amount of water to achieve a thinner consistency, if desired.
  8. Top base with tomato passata, spread evenly over base. Place thinly sliced zucchini over sauce. Top with cooked asparagus.
  9. Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes or until zucchini has softened and asparagus has warmed through.
  10. Remove from the oven, drizzle pizza with basil pesto, sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve!

Enjoy!
