Tried And Tested, Low Carb, Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza Base

Our guilty pleasure is pizza. We love it! But we'd love it even more if it was healthier. Unfortunately, we tried every low-carb, gluten-free recipe we could find and none was quite right. So we set about creating our own. Here it is: the ultimate, cauliflower pizza base using Cauli Rice, of course.

The Low-Carb, Cauli-Crust You've Been Looking For

We tried dozens of online recipes for cauliflower pizza bases but few lived up to our high expectations. Some were too crumbly, some too much effort, and most were simply ‘not pizza’.

This recipe learns from the best and makes them even better. It needs very few ingredients, is quick and easy to prepare and best of all, it feels like you're cheating!

Here's an idea

You'll need toppings for your pizza. We suggest you use a reduced-fat cheese and roasted veggies but this is your pizza and your choice!

How to make it

Making The Pizza Base

  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C
  2. In a frying pan, gently sauté Cauli Rice for 2-3 minutes, then allow to cool
  3. In a bowl, mix the Cauli Rice with Ground Almonds, Egg, Parmesan Cheese, Oregano and a pinch of Salt
  4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
  5. Shape the Cauliflower mixture into a round Pizza Base, approximately 20cm across and 1cm deep. Press it together, firmly
  6. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden (not completely cooked)

Making The Marinara Sauce

  1. Add a little Oil to a frying pan over a medium heat and brown the chopped Garlic
  2. Drain the juice from the Tinned, Chopped Tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes
  3. Transfer the cooked Tomatoes to a blender - with Tomato Puree, Basil, Salt and Pepper
  4. Pulse ingredients until smooth and, hey presto, Marinara Sauce!

Building Your Perfect Pizza

  1. Take the part-baked Pizza Base out of the oven
  2. Add the Marinara Sauce and toppings of your choice
  3. Bake for a further 5-10 minutes and serve immediately
