Cauliflower & Oat Pizza

Sounds like an unlikely combination? Try it to believe how well this works as a great pizza base!

Serves 1 pizza|Takes 30-40 mins


Pizza Base:

  • 200g (8oz) cauliflower
  • 100g (4oz) Flahavan’s Progress Oatlets
  • 50g (2oz) ground almonds
  • A pinch of dried oregano
  • Pinch of Salt and black pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Olive oil

Tomato sauce:

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • A bunch of fresh basil
  • 400g (1 tin) quality plum tomatoes
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves




  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F/gas mark 4.
  2. Blitz the cauliflower in a food processor until it has a fine, rice-like texture and put it into a mixing bowl.
  3. Separately blitz the oats to a flour like consistency and add to the mixing bowl.
  4. Then add the ground almonds, oregano, beaten egg, salt and pepper to the bowl and combine well.
  5. Line a pizza tray with parchment paper. Put the dough in the middle of the tray and flatten until it is about 10mm thick. Bake for 15 minutes, until just golden.
  6. While this is cooking make your tomato sauce as follows:
  • Add the tomatoes, basil and garlic to the food processor and blitz well.
  • Pour into a saucepan and simmer for approximately 15 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper.
  1. Once the pizza base is golden, remove it from the oven and turn the heat up to 200°C/ 390°F/gas mark 6. Spread the tomato sauce over the base, add the mozzarella and your toppings of choice. Allow to cook for a further 8 – 10 mins until toppings are cooked.

Top Tip:  If the base mixture is too sticky to roll, cover it with a separate piece of parchment paper and then flattened with a rolling pin.
