Almost as good as the real thing! The slices are “pick up-able” Great served with salad.


• for the base
• half a medium cauliflower (about 400g)
• 20g ground almonds
• 20g freshly grated parmesan
• 1 egg
• salt, pepper and oregano
• for the topping
• half a tin good quality tinned chopped tomatoes
• squeeze tomato puree
• salt, pepper oregano/basil
• 100g grated mozzarella


Whizz the cauliflower into "rice" in a food processor
Place in a covered bowl and microwave for 5 mins
(warning, this smells pretty nasty, but don't panic!)
Remove cover and allow to cool
When cool, put in a clean tea towel and squeeze as much moisture out as you can (this is really important if you want to avoid a soggy bottom!)
Beat the egg and add the cauliflower, almonds, parmesan, and seasoning. You should end up with a crumbly but dryish mixture.

Tip this onto a baking tray lined with greased baking parchment and form the mixture into a pizza base with slightly raised edges.
Bake at 180 for about 25-30 until nicely coloured.

Whizz the tomatoes, puree and seasoning until smooth.
Spread over the base and sprinkle the grated cheese.

Return to the oven until the cheese is bubbling and brown.

Obviously you can add additional toppings if you wish!

    Bit messy to make but tasted great with pizza toppings. Reheated ok for leftovers too. I went for mushrooms, olives, anchovies, ham and salami. Will leave salami off due to calorie cont next time.

    I’ve done this before and instead of draining the cauliflower, I used my juicer to get all the liquid out and kept all the churned up cauliflower – worked really well!

    This might sound silly but I don’t like cauliflower but I am waning to try this recipe. Does it have a strong cauliflower taste?

    Really delicious and satisfying. It was a bit of a faff compared to slinging a regular pizza in the oven for 10 minutes but my body thanks me for sticking with it!

    Made this for all the family last night.We each had our own toppings. I had salmon, feta and capers – YUM! I forgot to wring out the caulitflower but it wasn’t very wet. Cooked the base an extra 10 mins. I think the secret is to make the base thinner and cook for longer. Add herbs to base to reduce cauliflower taste. Great recipe.
