You don’t have to say goodbye to pizza when you go on a Paleo diet.

Instead, cauliflower comes to the rescue again! You can make a delicious Paleo pizza crust using this versatile vegetable.

Then top with cashew cheese if you want a more creamy texture. Or use some pesto or tomato sauce and top with whatoever vegetables you enjoy. Or throw on some proscuitto or salami for a more decadent approach.

This is a tasty, moreish paleo pizza base which you can top with any meat or vegetable of your choice. We used umami-packed sliced mushrooms (not included in the macros). This recipe is adequate for two servings, especially if served with a fresh, green side salad.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.
  2. Place the food processed cauliflower into a dish and cook in the microwave, partially covered – on high for 5-6 minutes. Carefully remove and tip the cauliflower onto a clean dish towel or muslin cloth. Allow to cool.
  3. Wrap the dishcloth / muslin around the cauliflower and squeeze as much of the moisture out as you possibly can. Tip into a bowl and add the almond flour, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, olive oil, egg, and salt and pepper.
  4. Combine well until it forms a ball of dough. Tip onto a tray lined with parchment paper and shape into a round, thin ‘pizza’ shape. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes, remove the pizza and arrange the mushrooms slices on top. Return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes. Once done, top with arugula and serve immediately.
