Dietitian UK: Cauliflower Pizza with Toppings

Cauliflower Pizza Base, Low carb and Gluten free.

Using cauliflower to make a pizza base? Yes it really does work and it’s delicious! No rising process either and as it is low in carbs you could add some homemade garlic bread on the side to make a really tasty treat 😉 

Top tips: make sure you leave the cauliflower to cool after the microwave part and give it a super good wring out, it will make a better base. The cheese is essential as it is pretty much the glue so you do need to use it but a half fat version would work too.

  1. 1 medium cauliflower
  2. 40g parmesan
  3. 40g mozzerella
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1 tsp mixed dried herbs
  6. Toppings of your choice - see my tips below
  1. Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower and chop the florets.
  2. Place the florest in a food processor and process to a powder (1-2 minutes).
  3. Microwave the cauliflower in a covered bowl with no added water for 4 minutes on high.
  4. Meanwhile preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5 and find your pizza stone/large baking tray.
  5. Tip onto a clean tea towel and place over a colander to cool.
  6. Whilst the cauliflower cools prepare your toppings.
  7. Now wring the water and sheer life out of the cauliflower - I got 200mls out of mine. It's quite satisfying 😉
  8. Place into a bowl, add the cheese, egg and herbs. Mix well and it will come to form a dough.
  9. Tip on the baking tray and flatten into a pizza crust.
  10. Bake for 8-11 minutes, meanwhile get your pizza sauce ready.
  11. Top the pizza with sauce and yumminess then bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is all melty.
Sauce Ideas
  1. Make a pizza sauce by reducing chopped tomatoes with garlic, herbs and tomato puree
  2. Cheat and smear the base with pesto and tomatoe puree

  1. Mushrooms,
  2. Sweetcorn
  3. Peppers

Ths pizza was so yummy, which I’ll be honest, it surprised me, that myself and the toddler gobbled up half for dinner and had the other half the next day for lunch 😉 Sorry Mr Tew, none left for you!

    1. I got quite a large amount of water out of the cauliflower so I think it must help it stick together when you wring it out. It’s a clever recipe, was so amazed it worked!

  1. As I said on Twitter, I really like the sound of this! Going to try it this week I think as I have the half term off with the kids and they love cooking things that are a bit different. Pinned and Stumbled. Thanks for joining in with #recipeoftheweek – there’s a new one up now. if you’d like to join in again 😀
