Tip

If you don't have a nut bag, you can use any fine cloth such as muslin; something that will let fluid pass through.

It is important to squueze as much moisture out as possible.

This dough will be stable enough to handle and pick up and eat, like a regular pizza dough.

Created after alot of research into different cauliflower pizza bases but the main inspiration came after reading a recipe from jocooks.com

    This is a winner, thanks to you I finally get my kids to eat cauliflower (of course I haven't told them what the base is made of) we all live it. One question how do you stop the base stops sticking to the pizza tray? I have tried olive oil and baking paper, I waste so much of the base from sticking to the tray or paper. Thank you Gab

    This was fantastic. I doubled the recipe (did two batches of cauli separately but then mixed with eggs and cheese all together). It it worth doing the cauli in advance and leaving it to cool so you have cool cauli and bowl when you start making the base. The whole family loved the recipe and teenage daughter stated it didnt even taste paleo - high praise.

    Submitted by Chevmag on 6. August 2018 - 16:38.

    Easy, tastes great. I used provolone cheese instead of mozzarella. I didn't cook cauli in water, simply cooked for 2 minutes with the cheeses in. This made it soft enough & didn't need to squeeze water out. Cooked beautifully, I turn over & top with whatever. I've just used passata, salami & mushroom on one & sliced potato & rosemary on the other. Note: this made 2 for me. I've only given 4 stars because I don't think the whole water squeeze is necessary.

    Submitted by ChristieBerry on 17. June 2018 - 19:26.

    Great, easy recipe and it cooked perfectly in just 20minutes. I used a chux cloth to squeeze out excess water from cauliflower and it worked perfectly. Once the base was cooked I added a tomato paste spread, bbq chicken, mushroom, spinach, tomato, and cheese on top and recooked until cheese was browned. It’s a great carb free base and I felt like I was just having a normal pizza. A guilty pleasure that was not so guilty!!

    Really tasty. Haven't nailed the firm base yet. Will have to try and get a nut bag, but I don't know how much more water I can get out. Time listed to make/bake is way too short - more like 45-60mins. But, really delicious.

    Delicious, I used 150 grams tasty cheese. I Baked the base for 20 minutes then added salami olives etc then continued cooking further 20-25 minutes until the edges were brown. It sliced well and I could eat each piece without cutlery just like real pizza.

    Just a quick tips if using as pizza base.....partially cook base 1st then add your favourite pizza topping and return to the oven.

    Whole cooking process takes 25 min on fan forced oven at 180 degrees Celsius.

  • Best pizza ever declared by

    Submitted by essalee on 5. September 2016 - 20:35.

    Best pizza ever declared by my whole family!  I have been sceptical about trying this for ages now as I really don't like cauliflower, neither do any of my family.  This however was really really nice, soft, cheesy and not tasting of cauliflower.  And I loved not having to roll dough.  This is being saved straight to my favourites and will be a regular on my meal planning.  I made a double batch.  Had to cut and cook the cauliflower in 2 batches, but after that mixed it all as a big double batch......in case anyone was wondering about how doubling works.  Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

    Submitted by wattdish on 24. August 2016 - 17:17.

    i have used a tea towel / kitchen towel to put the cauli in, twist up the excess towelling to create a tight ball of cauli that you can squeeze.

     

    as far as the cauli being undercooked, id check your temp, you do want it to be cooked cause that when you get to squeeze the excess liquid out.

    Made this last night and it came out perfect, delicious and was very pleasantly surprised by the consistency of the 'bread' which held to gether perfectly and did not fall apart, I did not know this could be achieved without flour. Will definitely be my go-to recipe for future bases. Thank you Krissy, your research certainly paid off..
