#FitnessFriday – Cauliflower Pizza Recipe

Fitness Friday - 8 January 2021

Take a look at Liam’s super healthy alternative to pizza. It’s easy to make and will satisfy your pizza cravings – without the added indigestion!

This week we’re sharing Liam’s favourite recipe for a cauliflower-based pizza. This recipe is a perfect guilt-free Friday night meal, packed full of fibre and can be topped with extra veggies for a boost in vitamins!


  • 1 cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano

For the topping:

  • 1 carton of passata sauce
  • 2 tsp of dried mixed Italian herbs
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 125g ball mozzarella
  • Fresh basil (for garnish)


Remove the leaves from the cauliflower and cut off the stalk end. Chop the cauliflower head into chunks and blend the pieces in a food processor until finely chopped. If all of the cauliflower head doesn’t fit, don’t worry – transfer the blended mix into a bowl and blitz the remaining chunks.

With all of the finely chopped cauliflower added to the bowl, cover it with cling film and microwave it on high for 5-6 min. 

Tip the cooked cauliflower into a clean tea towel and leave to cool for a moment. Once cooled, squeeze the remaining liquid out of the cauliflower and transfer to a clean bowl. 

Add the ground almonds, eggs, dried oregano and plenty of seasoning and mix well. 

Line a baking tray with baking paper and grease with oil. Pile the cauliflower mix in the centre of the tray and spread it out with your hands or a spoon into a 30cm round. Make sure to leave it a little thicker at the edges to create a nice crust-like texture. 

Bake your cauliflower base for 18 minutes or until golden brown and a little crisp at the edges. 

While the base is cooking, pour the passata sauce into a bowl and stir in the dried herbs and seasoning. With the sauce ready, drain the mozzarella and pat dry.

Once the cauliflower base is cooked, leave it to cool a little and turn the oven up to 240ºC/220ºC fan. Spread the tomato sauce on top of the cauliflower base and tear and scatter pieces of mozzarella on top. (Here’s a tip – if you end up with any sauce left over, keep it in the fridge for up to four days and use it as a pasta sauce!)

Pop your pizza back in the oven for 10-12 mins.

Once cooked, scatter the fresh basil leaves on top for a fresh and fragrant garnish. Slice it up and enjoy your delicious homemade meal!

You can also experiment with other healthy toppings – some of our favourites are ham and mushroom, mixed peppers and red onion, or black olives and tuna.
