Cauliflower Pizza

Sticking to eating healthy food isn’t easy, particularly for those of us who have grown up turning to comfort food after a tough day. Pizza in particular has been the downfall of many a dieter. We have a nutritious, yummy alternative: Cauliflower pizza.

This cuts down on the carbohydrates, and allows you to replace the less healthy elements of a standard pizza (bleached flower, high-fat cheese) with healthier options.


What Ingredients Will You Need?

  • ½ a head of cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of Mozzarella (low fat if possible)
  • 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Toppings of your choice

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C, and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Put the cauliflower into your food processor, and pulse until it’s finely crumbled.
  3. Move the cauliflower into a microwavable container, then microwave until softened. Allow it to cool, then place it in a dish towel and ring out any moisture.
  4. Mix in the egg, mozzarella, Parmesan, salt and pepper, then pat it out onto the baking paper – this should be roughly 10 inches in diameter.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden.
  6. Keep in mind that you’re trying to eat healthily when you choose your toppings. Low fat cheese is a great start, then add some exciting flavour with crushed garlic, cherry tomatoes, and crushed red pepper flakes. Strips of chicken are a great way to add protein.
  7. Finally bake in the oven for another 10 minutes, then top it all off with rocket lettuce and basil leaves, and enjoy your healthy but delicious comfort food.
