Tasty Tuesday: Three Ingredient Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza Base

3 Ingredient Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza Base

We are always looking for healthy alternatives to regular recipes in my home and life has presented an opportunity to make this delicious pizza again. My father has been unwell these past few weeks due to diabetes and he requires a complete lifestyle and food overhaul. I’ve seen him struggle with his weight and his health, now the doctor has asked him to follow a gluten free and carbohydrate free diet.

Here’s the first recipe that we’ve made for him (I say we because Mr is excellent at making gluten free and healthy recipes so he helped me with this one).

Three Ingredient Gluten Free Cauliflower Pizza Base Recipe

Ingredients:

2 Cups grated cauliflower

3 Tablespoons Flaxseed flour

1 Egg

Instructions:

  1. Grate the cauliflower
  2. Lightly stir-fry the cauliflower in a pan, be careful not to brown it.
  3. Take the cauliflower off the heat and allow to cool.
  4. Place the cauliflower, flaxseed flour and egg in a bowl and mix.
  5. Shape the dough on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 15-30 minutes at 180 ͦC.
  6. Remove the base, add desired toppings and bake.

Notes:

We’ve used coconut and almond flour for the same recipe before and the pizza base ended up extremely crumbly and couldn’t hold up the topping so I wouldn’t recommend it.

Feel free to substitute the Flaxseed Flour with Gluten Free Flour Mix (I didn’t use it here, because it contained potato flour).

An egg can be subsituted with two egg whites.

    1. I’ve been doing some research on this and it seems like banana is a good binding agent instead of eggs. Also 2 tablespoons of ground chia or flax seeds with 6 tablespoons of water mixed together make a good binder too. I hope this helps 🙂

  1. I am sorry your dad has been struggling, I hope this new way of eating will help him.
    This does sound like something I would love. I do try and do as much gluten free as possible, baking gluten free can be a bit of a nightmare, unless I do the pre-mixed ones. I actually haven’t done a cauliflower pizza base in awhile now, it will be a nice change 🙂

    1. Thanks for being so kind Lynne. He is better now, he has seen a few specialists and he is back on the right path. We tried draining the cauliflower in a cloth before, but drying it in a pan is easier and less messy 🙂 I know what you mean, it takes a lot of trial and error to get the perfect gluten free bake.
