Pizza is one of my favourite things, but I class it as a treat food, and not something I indulge in often.


I literally used to live on pizza, unfortunately, this isn’t a joke. Probably 5 days a week, I would eat a classic cheese and tomato pizza, and the other 2 days, I would probably eat cheese and tomato pasta. I honestly cannot remember eating anything else, but thankfully, those days are long gone and now pizza is an occasional occurrence when I really fancy it.

And sometimes, I don’t even fancy a typically classic dough-based pizza, and I just fancy the whole concept of sauce base, topped with my favourite vegetables and dairy-free cheese. When these days happen… this recipe happens! I’ve been making cauliflower based recipes for a little while, until I experimented with adding some courgette from my sisters leftovers! This was a good plan as it holds together much better and cauliflower and courgette really well together.

The recipe is so easy to make and unlike regular dough-based pizza recipes, you can be eating your cauliflower and courgette based pizza within 30 minutes! Simply whizz all the ingredients together until the ‘dough’ forms and then bake to firm up slightly, before topping. I love topping most of my pizzas (dough-based and plant-based) with a homemade BBQ sauce recipe, followed by any greens I have on hand (in this case, bell pepper, onion and broccoli), and then sometimes I add dairy-free cheese depending on how I’m feeling, or a homemade cheesy mustard drizzle (as pictured) but otherwise it is still very yummy without any cheese!


This is a great alternative to pizza, perfect for weeknight evenings where time doesn’t allow you to let dough rise for hours. It is also more nutritious being plant-based and it is gluten-free my friends so easy on the stomach!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you give it a go, leave a comment and let me know or post a picture on  instagram or  facebook and use #untaintedtastes and tag me @untaintedtastes as I’d love to see them 🙂 xo
