Since going gluten-free, I miss having a slice of regular pizza, focaccia or a fresh baguette. While there are many gluten-free options out there to buy, I do like to experiment in the kitchen with various gluten-free flours.

This Cauliflower and Cheese Bread recipe is inspired by one my sister, the Healthilinguist, created.


1 head cauliflower

1 cup grated cheddar cheese (more if you really want it cheesy)

1/2 cup potato flour

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder, oregano and salt


Steam cauliflower until soft – not too mushy but soft enough that you can pierce it with a fork easily. Let cool. On a chopping board, “rice” the cauliflower. Using a cheese grater, grate the cauliflower to a coarse texture (approximately the size of rice grains).

Put cauliflower into a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix. With hands, knead until it forms a ‘dough’.

On a pizza pan or baking pan lined with parchment paper and greased with some safflower oil, press mixture onto the pan so that it’s about 1/2 inch thick.

Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

If making a pizza crust, I’d spread the ‘dough’ even thinner and bake halfway through, then add pizza toppings and place back in the oven.
