Cauliflower Base for Pizza (GF, Lo Carb, Lo Cal)




Turn the oven on and let it preheat.

Line your Tray with paper.

Grate up a large cauliflower and measure it out in two cup quantities, put into a glass pyrex dish to soften in the microwave on high for 5 minutes.

Our large cauliflower gave us around four cups of raw cauli, so we doubled the recipe.


2 cups of grated cauliflower, works with brocoflower too (the green cauliflower, so likely will the purple one too)

Grate 50 grams of cheese, we have used, Tasty or Edam hard cheese grated, Parmesan, Mozorella – and all worked fine.

1 large egg

herbs, salt, pepper


For every 2 cups of raw grated cauliflower add 1 large egg and 50 grams of grated cheese, toss in as many herbs as you like, some salt and pepper and your done!

Pat it out onto (top quality) greaseproof paper… we’ve used the cheap paper, the immiatation paper and just straight onto a greased baking tray… it will end in frustration… honest. Just fork out the dollars… and buy the best waxy greaseproof baking paper you can find (and re-use it next time! because we’re frugal eh 🙂 absolutely!)

It should be 1 to 1.5cm thick… half an inch (ish!) for the UK and US blog followers 😉

Give it a light spray with cooking oil aerosol

Cook at 210′ C  (or 410’F “ish” for you in the UK, US ) for 15- 20 mins until golden

Once cooled to the touch, top with whatever you like… in our house its usually cranberry, cooked chicken, onions, and cream cheese.

To give you an idea of how darn low this is in calories, I could eat a whole one of these and it would still be less calories than ONE slice of dominoes, pizza hut or hells pizza.

Love love love.

You’re welcome!

PS credit and thanks to my friend Jodi for coming over to help me nail this recipe when it kept flopping on me.

Due to:

cooking the cauli in water – woops

using cheap paper – woops

using too much cheese – woops

spreading/patting too thin – woops.

^so learn from my trials and errors.
