  • 1 Pre-made or homemade dough for one pizza
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divdedd
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons good Curry Powder
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley (see note)
  • 46 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚ F and place pizza stone in oven if using. Cut cauliflower florets into small, bite-sized pieces. in a roasting pan or sheet tray covered with parchment paper, toss cauliflower with 1 tablespoon olive oil and at least 1 tablespoon curry powder, enough to coat. Bake until browning, 20 to 25 minutes. Turn up heat to 500˚.
  2. Roll the dough out onto a surface covered in cornmeal (I used a large wood cutting board put some of you may have a pizza peel.) Roll/shape the dough out to about 14″ circe.
  3. Combine roasted cauliflower with red onion and parsley. Brush 1 tablespoon of oil over rolled out crust and spread cauliflower over crust.. Sprinkle cheese on top and slide pizza into the oven.
  4. Bake until crust is golden, 10-15 minutes depending on oven.


This recipe was inspired by a similar pizza I had at my favorite local pizza shop in Galesburg, IL (Baked). The flavors can change greatly depending on the curry mix you use. I highly recommend experimenting!

In place of the parsley, I like cilantro.
