  • “Dough"
  • 1 small cauliflower head cut in florets
  • ½ cup buckwheat flour
  • 1 organic egg replace with ground flax for the vegan version
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Topping
  • 1 cup kale roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion cut in thin rings
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 4 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 organic eggs
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Sauce
  • 1 medium garlic bulb roasted (it can be roasted along with pizza)
  • 1 tsp tahini sesame paste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  • Heat the oven at 200°C/392°F
  • Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse to obtain a rice-like texture that won't stick together. Don't process it too much because it will turn into a very wet pure and will need more baking time (if the machine bowl is small, you might need to make this in two batches).
  • Transfer the cauliflower into a large bowl, add buckwheat flour, salt, eggs and mix to obtain a wet “dough” ball.
  • Transfer the cauliflower ball onto a pizza stone, press it to spread and make ½ inch thick pizza crust shape.
  • Brush the top with coconut oil and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Flip over and bake for another 15 minutes.
  • While the crust is baking, prepare the kale topping – heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet, add kale, season with salt and cook for 5 minutes over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Remove from the oven, spread it with tomato sauce, add mozzarella, cooked kale, and onion rings and bake for five minutes, until mozzarella is melted.
  • Crack eggs on top and bake for two more minutes.
  • Place the sauce ingredients in the blender and process to obtain a creamy liquid.
  • Season with freshly ground pepper and serve right away, with garlic sauce.
