Pizza with Cauliflower Base – Gluten Free Pizza Base


It took me quite a long time to get my head around cauliflower as a pizza crust, it just didn’t make sense to me!

However, it does work, amazingly effective and nice and simple to make at the same time as the regular pizzas in our house.

This recipe made 2x30cm pizzas, the photo is deceptive!


1 cauliflower, around 900g, leaves trimmed

1 egg, beaten

100g Parmesan, grated


Trim the cauliflower and, using a food processor, process the stalks first, then add the rest so that you have a very fine crumb.

Pop the cauliflower in a microwavable bowl, cover, and blast for 8-10mins until cooked.

Pour into a fine mesh sieve and allow to sit, draining any liquid as it cools.

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Centigrade.

Once cool enough to handle pour into a bowl and add the egg and cheese, mix well.

Line two pizza tins with baking parchment, using your hands, take half the cauliflower mix and gently push it onto the tin, push it all the way to the edges and repeat with the other half.

Pop in the oven for 20-25mins until golden brown.

Allow to cool a little and then top.

Bake until toppings are golden.

  1. I love this style of pizza, leaves me feeling so happy and non bloated/uncomfortable! I’ve also made a zucchini base in the past, you should try that too some time! πŸ™‚

  2. Hey thanks for the like and for stopping by my blog. I’ve experimented with cauliflower crust in the past but mine has never turned out as delicious-looking as yours! I’m surprised 1 egg was enough to hold everything together
