Per serving


  • 500g frozen cauliflower florets – defrosted
  • 125g reduced fat mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 medium sized tomato
  • 40g tomato puree
  • 1 small egg, beaten
  • 40g reduced fat cream cheese
  • 1tsp Italian mixed herbs
  • pinch salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


Pre-heat the oven to 200C, 400F, Gas Mark 6

Place the defrosted cauliflower florets into a blender and blitz until a bread crumb consistency.

Transfer the crumbed cauliflower to a clean tea-towel and wring out the excess fluid from the cauliflower and transfer the ‘dry’ cauliflower crumb to a mixing bowl.

Add the beaten egg, cream cheese, herbs and pinch of salt to the mixing bowl and mix until evenly combined.

Line a baking tray with baking parchment or a silicone liner.  Place the cauliflower mixture in the center of the baking tray and using a spoon shape the mixture into a large disc, making sure the thickness is about 5mm and a little thicker at the edges.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pizza base is golden brown.

Whilst the pizza crust is baking de-seed the tomato and finely dice it.  Place the diced tomato in to a small bowl with the tomato puree, a little black pepper and 2 tsps water.  Mix until a paste is formed and set aside until required.

Remove from the oven and carefully spread over the tomato paste and the mozzarella slices.  Return to the oven and baked for a further 5-10 minutes.

Serve with the fresh basil leaves sprinkled over the top.
