  6. Cut like a pie into triangles.

Viola! You have gluten free, dairy free pizza.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust:


  • 1 head organic cauliflower, stalk removed
  • 1/2 c Daiya “Dairy Free” cheese – shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 organic eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Steam in a steamer basket and drain well. (I like to put it on a towel to get all the moisture out.) Let cool.

In a bowl, combine the cauliflower with the Daiya cheese, oregano, salt, garlic powder and eggs. Transfer to the center of the baking sheet and spread into a circle, resembling a pizza crust. Bake for 20 minutes.

Add desired toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Natural Food Colorings

Artificial colors and flavors can irritate some sensitive individuals, causing behavioral and other problems. Studies have shown these chemicals make children hyperactive and inattentive as well as a negative impact on their ability to learn. Excito-toxins, like MSG and aspartame, lead to hyperactivity and can lead to neurological cell death. These chemicals also feed into the oxidative stress cycle to which an autistic child may be particularly vulnerable.

Healthy and Natural Food Colorings:

  • Red: beet juice
  • Orange: carrot juice
  • Yellow: turmeric
  • Green: spinach juice
  • Blue: blueberry juice
  • Purple: Blackberry juice, red cabbage boiled- water turns purple
