When I was young I hated the taste of cauliflower although I think it was more about the manner in which it was cooked and served back then. Cauliflower has certainly proven to be the most versatile vegetable, especially to someone cutting back on their carbs, and it is certainly the master imposter. Cauliflower mash, cauliflower rice, cauliflower pizza bases and flat breads are some of the more popular dishes where cauliflower poses as something else, and does a fine job at it as well. It’s not surprising that cauliflower now ranks up there as one of my favorite vegetables and I probably eat it in one form or another at least 4 times a week.

So Quick and Easy to Make

This recipe is one of my favorite ways to cook cauliflower. It is very quick to make, uses a few simple ingredients and is very nutritious as well. Unlike many recipes that require you to precook and squeeze water out of the cauliflower, this recipe simply uses raw blitzed cauliflower. Whilst I normally rice my own cauliflower, I will sometimes buy it prepackaged from the local supermarket, hence why I have specified 250gms/8.8 oz instead of a whole or half cauliflower in the recipe.

Once you have cooked the base, this recipe freezes really well. making it very easy to come up with a meal or snack very quickly once you have defrosted what you want to use. While pizza is one of my favorite uses for this recipe, I also particularly love to eat this warm, served as an appetizer with hummus or some extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and Dukkah. Try it as a wrap or as a naan bread to serve with curry for variation. Cumin seeds added to the mix go really well if you want to make naan bread, as it tastes great and would really complement curries. Making flat bread like this would also be a great way to get a child to eat some vegetables if you have a fussy eater.

For some other wrap ideas, make sure you check out these other fabulous recipes that include a more wholemeal like version such as Low Carb Mexican Tortillas, Low Carb Gluten Free Tortillas, which are perfect for soft tacos, breakfast burritos and just to use as a general wrap. There is also an egg free wrap recipe, Low Carb Flat Bread, that tastes amazing as well.
I hope you find the time to make this and enjoy it as much as I do.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Course: Appetizer, Baking, Cauliflower Recipe, Low Carb Cooking 101, Lunch, Main Course, Snack
Cuisine: Diabetic Recipe, Gluten Free, Keto, LCHF, Low Carb, Vegetarian
Keywords: cauliflower, cauliflower pizza, low carb pizza, pizza
Servings: 2 pizzas

Ingredients

  • 250 gms /8.8 oz riced cauliflower
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • Pinch black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200 C/390 F fan forced
  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • Using quality baking paper, create the size bread/base that you require, ie, 2 medium pizza bases or approx 7-8 smaller sizes or a mix of sizes. Divide the batter into mounds required. Using a silicon spatula, gently press the mix into a round shape approx 5mm thick. Use the spatula’s flat edge to push the edge of base gently inwards to create an even edge. Try to make as even as possible. You can create thinner or thicker bases but you may need to vary the cooking time. Do not make them too thin though or they won't hold their shape.
  • Cook the bases for approximately 15 minutes, then carefully flip and continue to cook for approximately 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. These can be eaten hot straight from the oven or cooled/stored in the fridge or freezer for later use.

To Create a Pizza

  • Simply add your favorite fillings and return to the oven cooking for another 5-10 minutes, until your fillings have been heated through thoroughly and any cheese used has melted .Just remember that it is a fairly delicate base so as a pizza is better suited to eating with a knife and fork.

Variations

  • Omit the coconut flour and add ¼ cup almond meal or you can use 2 tablespoons almond meal and 2 tablespoons psyllium husks ground instead.
  • Herb Bread- Add ½ teaspoon of mixed herbs/ Italian herbs or oregano.
  • Naan Bread-Add ½ teaspoon cumin seeds to create Cumin Naan Bread  or ½ teaspoon curry powder for Curry Naan Bread

Additional Serving Suggestions

  • These can be heated up quickly in the microwave or simply fry in a little oil and/or butter till warm (great for when you are using it as Naan bread.)  
  • Heat up and serve dipped in oil and Dukkah as an appetizer or snack. 
  • Use it as a base for your favorite breakfast, ie bacon and eggs
  • Create a ham and cheese toasty by pan frying your assembled toasty in a frying pan in butter until the filling has melted.

Recipe Notes

To freeze, allow to cool thoroughly and place baking paper between each piece, sealing airtight in a zip lock bag until required. Allow to defrost before heating or using as pizza base.
