Recipe: Gluten Free Cauliflower Base Pizza


Whether you’re after a gluten-free pizza, cutting back on grains or simply want to up your veggie intake, this recipe will be right up your alley!


Gluten Free Cauliflower Base Pizza

What You’ll Need:

  • Florets from one head of cauliflower
  • 80g almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese – I used a mixture of parmesan and mozarella
  • 3 eggs

What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 230 degrees and line a pizza tray with baking paper.
  2. Pulse  cauliflower in a food processor until a fine rice-like texture forms. Make sure you don’t over do it and end up with puree.
  3. Place 700 g of chopped cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook on high for 10 minutes or until very tender.
  4. Drain through a fine sieve, pressing down with the back of a spoon (or even clean hands!) to remove excess liquid. Make you get as much liquid out as possible as this is what gives you a nice crunchy pizza base.
  5. Combine the cauliflower, almond meal, basil and salt and pepper in a bowl.
  6. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and cheese. Use your hands to pull the dry ingredients into the middle until everything is combined.
  7. Press cauliflower mixture firmly into  tray and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
  8. Cover pizza base with passata and your favourite toppings. Return to oven and bake for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
