This gluten free, low carb cauliflower flatbread has the PERFECT texture. You can hold and bend it without it breaking, & its made with only 7 ingredients!

What? You thought that just because I wrote a whole cookbook about cauliflower that I would ease up on the cauliflower recipes? Er, wrong!

This is based on the naan recipe I have in my book, but I thought, what if I make a really delicious flatbread out of it! You know, like a very large flatbread that can double as a pizza or whatever you want!

This cauliflower flatbread is great because it’s the perfect base for piling on the toppings. The texture is perfect. I feel like a lot of cauliflower pizza crusts or flatbreads crumble when you pick them up, but this cauliflower flatbread recipe makes for slices that you can easily pick up and bend.

Whether you’re on the hunt for an easy flatbread recipe, or specifically a homemade, gluten free flatbread, this low carb flatbread is made with almond flour, arrowroot flour, and checks all the boxes!

I’m topping this with some golden brown zucchini coins, some creamy burrata, but toppings for this flatbread are endless!

7 Ingredient Flatbread Dough:

  • cauliflower: this is going to serve as the base and the main “wet” ingredient. It’s also a really sneaky way to add more vegetables into your family’s dinner. No, you cannot taste it.
  • egg: only 1!
  • garlic: we’re using 2 cloves for the base. If you want to eat the flatbread plain or serve it cut up in your bread basket, mix some more minced garlic with butter or oil and brush the top of the flatbread to add some extra pizazz.
  • blanched almond flour: you know I love blanched almond flour because the color has a great pastry color and it’s super fine.
  • arrowroot flour: I truly believe this is what makes the flatbread and gives it that bend-able, hold-able texture. You can order arrowroot flour on amazon!
  • salt: brings out flavor.
  • olive oil: for drizzling on the flatbread before you bake it to make sure it stays moist and the edges crisp up 🙂

  7. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the edges appear golden brown.
  8. While the flatbread is baking, cut the zucchini into coins and sauté over medium-high heat in a pan with the avocado oil for 5 – 10 minutes until they are golden brown.
  9. Dollop the pesto on top of the flatbread. Sprinkle with the mozzarella.
  10. Add the zucchini coins on top.
  11. Cut the burrata balls in half or fourths and place on top.

  14. Cut into slices and enjoy!
