bake paleo: cauliflower tortilla

It is the absolute craze. Everyone in the social food hemisphere seems to have tried it, there is a billion different recipes out there and especially the paleo community seems to be overly grateful for a previously underated veggie: CAULIFLOWER.

imageI have to admit, I bought my first fresh head of cauliflower in march this year – never thought I would probably increase my supermarket’s cauliflower orders by 500% as I am having it so often, they already might know me as “that cauli girl”.

I don’t care. image

But I did not have any cauli experience before playing around and finally settling for a pizza base recipe from @elliebellxo – another amazing inspiration within the real food world. The only time I can remember eating it was probably when I was a kid and my grandmother made it – a typical Bavarian take on it with bread crumbs and liters of brown butter.

Now,I use this base multiple times a week and I don’t even know how to call it – tortilla, naan, flatbread, pizza base … I’ll stick with tortilla now, because that’s what I like to use it for most times.


Paleo Cauliflower Tortilla

  • Servings: 1
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print
Macros: 5g carbs | 0g fat | 14g protein || 100 cal per serving


  • 250g raw cauliflower, finely riced
  • 1 tsp physillium husk powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chili powder (optional)
  • Hot sauce (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional if filled with my paleo nutella)

Rice your cauliflower in the blender until it reaches a fine rice-y texture. Mix with all the dry ingredients and fold in your egg whites.
Pad onto a baking sheet – my Philips Airfryer allowes only the small round shape – and bake at 185• for 10-12 min until the top is browning and the edges get crispy.

I flip the tortilla then and bake it for another 5 min until the other side is golden brown as well..


And there are as many possibilities to go on from baking your basic cauliflower tortilla as there are names I could come up with it.image

I already used the base as

  • traditional cauliflower pizza base, topped with tomato sauce, ham, veggies and mozzarella
  • cauliflower wrapped stuffed with salad, grilled chicken and tzaziki
  • breakfast taquitos filled with either cream cheese or my beloved paleo avocado nutella
  • crispy parmesan nachos by cutting the rounds into nacho shaped triangles, bread in parmesan and bake for another 3-5 min

imageI am sure that list could go on and on and on. And maybe we can come up with some more?
