Healthy Low Carb Pizza

Healthy Comfort Food: Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza

To say getting this pizza base right has been a labor of love is an understatement! Tim and I have selflessly eaten our way through 5 (maybe 6?) versions of this low carb pizza recipe (it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it) so we could share this healthy comfort food with you…

As both of us eat a clean diet finding a great gluten and dairy free pizza recipe has been hard, and we haven’t found a store bought option that is #JennyApproved! Whilst we are happy to have something that is a little higher in carbs on our treat nights, I wanted to develop a recipe that was low carb, high in fibre, whilst still giving us real pizza vibes…

Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza

(serves 2-4) 

  • 1 large cauliflower, chopped, steamed and cooled.
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3 eggs, or vegan eggs ( I like Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Squeeze all of the water out of the cauliflower by wrapping it in a clean tea towel and wringing it dry. Place in a food processor and break down to ‘shreds’.

Place this in a large mixing bowl, and combine well with the other ingredients to form a ball of dough (I use my hands to mix). Leave this to sit for 10 minutes.

Dust your surface and rolling pin with a little coconut flour and roll flat to around 1/2 an inch thick (you can also just press down with your hands).

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or use a pizza pan), dust with a little flour, add the pizza base and bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven.

Add your toppings and bake for a further 10 minutes.

Healthy Pizza Toppings

I’m a huge fan of Rao’s Pizza Sauce as I love that it’s made with olive oil, and for ‘cheese’ we use either Violife Foods or homemade cashew cheese. Other favorite toppings include:

  • Fresh veggies such as sliced tomatoes, baby spinach, arugula and sweetcorn
  • Sautéed veggies such as onions, garlic, mushrooms, zucchini and red peppers
  • Proteins such as grilled chicken, ground beef or anchovies
  • Fresh herbs such as basil and parsley

This recipe is perfect for those following my 8 Week Lean and Clean Program! The next program starts on 01/11/2021 to help you kickstart your healthiest, happiest year ever.
