Cauliflower Pizza

Here’s a gluten free pizza that substitutes the bread crust with healthy cauliflower. Topped with vegetables and cheese, this nutrient-packed pizza is high fiber, too.


  • 1 lb cauliflower florets
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 oz grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup sliced mushroom
  • 1/2 red bell pepper sliced
  • 1/2 oz shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 sliced tomato
  • 1/3 cup fresh baby spinach


  • In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, cook cauliflower for 5 minutes, or until tender. Place cauliflower in a towel and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry.
  • In a bowl, mix egg, cauliflower, 2 tablespoons of the basil, black pepper, garlic and Parmesan cheese until combined.
  • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread cauliflower dough out into a pizza round. Lightly coat cauliflower crust with cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and bell pepper and sauté for 5 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
  • Remove crust from oven. Increase oven temperature to 450°F.
  • Top cauliflower crust with mozzarella cheese, sautéed mushrooms and bell pepper, tomato, spinach, remaining 2 tablespoons basil and black pepper to taste. Bake for 7 minutes, or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
