Gluten-Free Vegan Cauliflower Pizza

Who doesn’t crave a good old-fashioned slice of pizza now and then? It can be hard to find the right alternative to satisfy these “guilty pleasure” moments, especially with food sensitivities, but not impossible.


This recipe is a healthy twist on a pizza dish jam-packed with nutritious, vibrant, and flavorful veggies. Enjoy the freshness of a delicious homemade Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza that is also vegan friendly and will guarantee to change the way you indulge in pizza.


How to Make Gluten-Free Cauliflower Pizza



The key to making this delicious pizza is all in the crust and a selection of fresh vegetables. Making a cauliflower pizza can be a bit labor-intensive. Still, with a little bit of TLC, you will be on your way to making a beautiful golden crust to load up with all flavor and no fear of gluten flare-ups.


Recommendations to make a great crust:


  • Remove as much moisture from the cauliflower as possible
  • Process your cauliflower into a fine couscous like consistency
  • Don’t forget to add ground flaxseed to bine and make a crumble-like dough.


If you are looking to save a little extra-time in the kitchen, you can always purchase pre-riced cauliflower, fresh or frozen.


What Are Other Types of Alternative Pizza Crusts?


One of the great things about vegetables is the many ways you can combine and cook them. Some veggies work amazingly well as a base for pizza bites, or made into a simple thin crust similar to cauliflower.


Some alternatives to Cauliflower crust include:


  • Sweet Potato
  • Zucchini
  • Portobello Mushroom Caps
  • Eggplant
  • Beets


Spruce up your pizza with a variety of toppings and discover exciting new flavors with sauces as well. Don’t be afraid to experiment; the possibilities are endless! 


Find your favorite recipe, make the necessary modifications, and enjoy a gluten-free pizza of different nutrients and varieties. Who knew eating pizza could taste and feel so good and nutritious for the body!


Is Cauliflower Crust Healthier than Whole-Wheat Pizza Crust?


Compared to your everyday whole-wheat pizza crust, per serving a cauliflower crust eliminates quite a few extra calories, carbs, and fats you’d regularly consume. 


Whole-Wheat crust typically contains more fiber than a cauliflower crust. Still, with a variety of added toppings and some vegan cheese, you’ll have a filling fiber-rich meal to enjoy!

Yield: 2
prep time: 20 M cook time: 1 H total time: 1 H 20 M


  • 1 head of cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 4 tbsp water
  • Himalayan pink salt, to taste

How to cook Vegan Cauliflower Pizza

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. To make the pizza base, place the cauliflower into a food processor and blend until it has formed an even couscous like texture.
  2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and blanch the cauliflower for a few seconds then strain using a fine mesh strainer and rinse briefly under cold water.
  3. Place into a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
  4. Whisk the flaxseed with the water in a small bowl then add the cauliflower and mix together to form a crumbly dough.
  5. Bring the dough into a ball with your hands and roll out between two pieces of baking parchment to create 1 medium pizza.
  6. Transfer these to a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes until crispy and golden.
  7. Top the pizza with the pesto then scatter over the other ingredients, finishing with the cheese.
  8. Return to the oven for 8-10 minutes until the cheese has melted and the zucchini is starting to wilt.
  9. Scatter over the arugula and drizzle over a little olive oil to serve.
