This is an easy, gluten-free pizza with a difference. Instead of flour, this recipe uses cauliflower to make the light pizza crust, which is topped with a delicious homemade tomato sauce.


Cauliflower Pizza (Gluten-free)

For the base:

  • 1 cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 100g cream cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Black pepper

For the tomato sauce

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • Pinch of dried chilli flakes
  • 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • A handful of fresh basil, chopped
  • Salt & black pepper

How to make Cauliflower Pizza (Gluten-free)

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

2. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.

3. Blitz the cauliflower in a food processor until powdery. Simmer in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and leave to cool before wrapping in a clean tea towel and squeezing to wring out excess water.

4. Place the cauliflower in a bowl and mix with the cream cheese and egg. Season well.

5. With clean hands, divide the mixture into four portions and shape on the lined baking tray to make a 1-1½ cm thick pizza base. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm and golden.

6. To make the sauce, heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic, chilli and tomatoes and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add the fresh basil and blitz in your blender to make a smooth sauce.

7. Add a dollop of the tomato sauce and toppings of your choice to the cauliflower pizza base. Bake for about 10 minutes.
