Low Carb Cauliflower Vegetable Pizza Base Recipe

Can pizza contribute to your 5 (or 7) a day ? Yes. Especially if you swap flour for cancer-fighting cauliflower and make this wheat free, gluten free, grain free, low carb cauliflower pizza base. Of course, many will argue that this is a world apart from a fire oven pizza crust, and they would no doubt be right, but cauliflower pizza crust is actually surprisingly delicious and super quick to make. And a really brilliant idea for those who want to reduce their carbs intake, whilst still enjoying pizza, with the added bonus of cauliflower's health benefits. A square or rectangular cauliflower cut up in small squares would also make great healthy finger food at a party. For a vegan pizza crust, replace every egg with 10g (about 1 tablespoon) chia seeds and 2 tablespoons water, mixed well and allowed to set for at least 30 minutes. Use all vegan toppings and leave out the cheese or use your favourite melting vegan cheese substitute.

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. RAW Cauliflower technique : Put the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until perfectly crumbly. STEAMED Cauliflower technique : Steam the cauliflower for a little under 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly,  crumble in the food processor, then transfer onto a clean tea towel laid flat. Gather the cloth and twist to wring as much water out as you can. You can get between 1/4 cup and 1/3 cup liquid, or even more, depending on your cauliflower.
  • The steamed cauliflower technique makes for a more chewy and less crumbly pizza base, but the raw cauliflower technique is absolutely delicious, if you are short of time.
  • Add the ground nuts, grated parmesan and eggs or chia gel. Process until well combined. Season with dried herbs and freshly crushed black pepper to taste.
  • Transfer the cauliflower mixture to 1 or 2 baking trays lined with baking parchment, depending on wether you want to make 1 large pizza or small ones.
  • With your clean hands, pat down to flatten and shape into a circle, raising the edges a little, if you like your pizzas with a crust.
  • Bake the cauliflower pizza base(s) for about 15 minutes, until lightly golden.
  • Now add your tomato sauce and the toppings of your choice and return to the oven to bake for another 10 to 15 minutes.
