Recipe's preparation

  1. **Pre heat oven to 200 deg


    1. Roughly chop cauliflower into pieces and add to TM bowl. Chop - 5 sec/speed 4.5


    2. Place cauliflower into rice basket and insert into TM bowl. Pour in boiling water and cook - 10 min/Varoma temp/speed 2


    3. Remove rice basket and run under cold water to cool cauliflower


    4. Place cauliflower into a nutbag and squeeze as much water out as possible. It is important to take your time and do this step properly!


    5. Place cauliflower back into TM bowl and add eggs, cheese, herbs, salt and pepper and mix - 20 sec/speed 4


    6. Remove mixture from bowl and place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Using a spatula, gently make a flat pizza shape and bake for 25-30 min, or until golden brown



    7. Remove from oven and top with favourite ingredients, and bake until cooked. Or just eat it as is... Enjoy!


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

Thermomix Model

  • Appliance TM 5 image
    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Best Ever Cheesy Cauliflower Pizza Base

    I haven't made this yet, but does the pizza base come out crispy? even after toppings?

    wow made this last night for dinner. Even the non cauliflower eating hubby loved it so much I'm making more for tonight's dinner

    Wow, vegetarian kitchen can be really delicious. Thank you for this recipe!

    angiedow: I know your comment was from AGES ago but I have just discovered the difference between not cooking and cooking the cauliflower. You get a much better base cooking the cauliflower, truly much better. I used a mesh reusable fruit and vege bag to do mine in and rinse it inside out when I am done. I have made multiple bases in a day to freeze.

    Have used flavoured/smoked cheeses to give this a different taste - love love love this recipe! No problems using TM 31 either

    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

    Truly fantastic! It does not smell like cauliflower, even while baking. And it does not taste like cauliflower either. This is a winner! thank you.

    Fantastic recipe! My daughter and I loved it as an alternative to a regular base. One quantity easily filled one pizz tray. Next time I might divide the quantity onto two trays and make the base thinner.
