      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

These bases hold surprisingly well together and will fill you up.  Our family of six enjoyed two pieces each.

Don't be worried if the bases turn brown in the oven, it's the cheese browning in the mixture and it gives a much firmer texture and nice flavour.

    Delicious! I could have eaten this as a side dish and not just as a pizza base. Thanks for sharing 😀

  • The base was tasty and held

    The base was tasty and held together well despite being a bit soggy. Although, that may have had more to do with not allowing the cauliflower to dry out more before forming the base or it may have needed a little longer in the oven. I topped with sliced mushrooms, baby spinich and some grated cheese, made a delicious lunch!
