for 2 people


  • 250g cauliflower(or cauliflower stalks)
  • 60g flour(I used 30g almond flour + 30g chickpea flour, use the ones you like, prefer)
  • 15g corn starch(I used tapioca starch)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Chard Ricotta:

  • 1/2 cup almond Ricotta(check this recipe or if you prefer, use traditional ricotta)
  • 2 garlic cloves, mashed
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 swiss chard bunch, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosmary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thym
  • 1 handful chopped parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • 1 apple, chopped in cubed
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts
  • Drizzle of olive oil


Cut the florets or stalks of the cauliflower in small florets and place it in a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds until it becomes a “flour” but not too long that it becomes a paste. If there is chuncks of cauliflower, scrap it down in the food processor and blend a few seconds more;

Transfer the cauli “flour” to a large bowl and combine all the other ingredients with the hands. If you have a large food processor you can also mix everything in for a few seconds in pulse until it becomes a dough;

Open the “pizza” dough with the hands over a baking paper in a oven proof tray and bake It in pre-heated oven at 170°C for about 40-50 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat a frying pan with one tablespoon of olive oil and fry the onions and garlic  with the salt for 3-5 minutes, until it sweats. Add the herbs and the chopped chards, give it a stir and cover the pan. Let it simmer in medium heat for about 5 minutes;

Add the ricotta and stir really well. Cover the pan and let it simmer for about 2 minutes. Adjust the salt and add the chopped parsley;

Top the pizza with the Chard Ricotta and some apple cubes and bake it for 5-10 minutes at 180°C;

Drizzle some olive oil and enjoy this delicious healthy pizza.

Don’t forget that leftovers can be frozen for about 3 months and are good in the fridge for 3 days;
