This Mediterranean-style spinach and tomato cauliflower pizza crust will take you to the flavours of Majorca island! Super easy to make and so delicious! Dairy-free, gluten-free & low carb.




120g cauliflower florets made into cauliflower rice

60g almond meal

Pinch of salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/2 tbsp of rosemary finely chopped

1 organic egg


2 cups tightly packed of spinach

1/4 cup of brown onion diced

5 slices of tomato (approx. 1/2 cm thick)

3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp ground pepper

1/8 tsp of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  2. Wash the cauliflower and cut the florets into chunks. Add them to a food processor (alternatively you can use a grater) and pulse until you make cauliflower rice.
  3. Add the cauliflower rice to a milk bag, and squeeze out all the water (see notes).
  4. Add all the crust ingredients to a large mixing bowl, and combine well with a rubber spatula or with the hands. The dough will be quite wet. Don’t worry as this is normal! It will cook through in the oven.
  5. Lay a baking tray with baking paper. Add a drizzle of olive oil and spread it through using a brush.
  6. Form a ball with the dough, and press on the baking tray, to form the base. The base should be approx. 1/3 cm thick.
  7. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes to make sure it’s cooking well and not burning. Once it’s ready remove from the oven (see notes).
  8. While the dough is cooking let’s prepare the spinach topping! Add the spinach, onion, olive oil, salt and ground pepper to a large mixing bowl, and combine well with the hands. You want to make sure all the spinach are soaked with the olive oil.
  9. Once the base is ready, add the spinach topping evenly to cover the entire base, and the slices of tomato on top.
  10. Cook for another 30 minutes or until is cooked through. Both the spinach and tomato should be very well roasted (the spinach should look dark and the tomatoes dry).
  11. Enjoy!!


  • Squeeze out all the water of the cauliflower rice, using a milk bag or gauze. This step is super important to ensure the cauliflower is dry, and the base holds well together!!
  • Before adding the toppings, check that the base isn’t stuck to the baking paper. If it is, carefully separate using a flat tool like a knife or spatula. It will be easier to do it now than with the toppings on!
  • Get your hands dirty and mix well the spinach topping! If your hands don’t end up green, you haven’t put enough effort! 😝
  • Make sure the spinach and tomatoes are well roasted, before taking it out of the oven.
