The novelty of cooked cauliflower as a low-carbohydrate grain replacement will never lose its appeal. I love sneaking vegetables into my favorite dishes, especially as a swap for unhealthy ingredients. This pizza is as flavorful, satisfying, and healthy! This gluten-free, low-carbohydrate pizza has protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. 


  • 2  Pounds  cauliflower florets
  • 1  Tablespoon  oil
  • organic eggs
  • 1/2  Cup  nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2  Tablespoon  chia seeds
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  salt
  • 3  Tablespoons  nutritional yeast
  • 1  Teaspoon  ALOHA Daily Good
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  dried oregano
  • tomato
  • 1/2  avocado


Preheat your oven to 350° F.

In a food processor pulse the cauliflower until finely chopped, making the "rice."

Heat a large skillet on medium. Add the oil and then three cups of the cauliflower "rice." Cook for about five minutes.

You will now need to remove as much moisture from the cauliflower as possible. Ideally, transfer the cooked cauliflower to a cheesecloth-lined bowl and then wring out as much water as you can. If you do not have cheesecloth, use a few paper towels. Your dough will not bind if there is too much water in it.

In a medium to large bowl, combine the cauliflower and three of the eggs (leave one for the fried egg on top). Mix in the yogurt, chia, salt, nutritional yeast, ALOHA Daily Good, and oregano. Knead the mixture until it forms a dough-like consistency.

Fill a pie dish with the dough, patting it down to an even thickness. You can also use a baking sheet covered in parchment paper—just roll out the dough into a circular pizza shape.

Bake the pizza for about 30 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. Remove from the oven, and let it cool for five to ten minutes. If you used a pie dish, loosen the edges with a knife and then flip the pie over a large plate. 

In a frying pan, add the other 1/2 tablespoon of oil and heat halfway in between medium and full. Crack the egg with care and drop it in the oil. While that is cooking, slice the tomato and avocado—add them on top of the pizza. When the edges of the egg start to brown, it's time to take it off the heat. Carefully remove it from the pan and place it on top of your pizza. Sprinkle additional salt on the egg if desired. Enjoy a healthy slice!

Cauliflower Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Cauliflower Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
