If you’re looking for a low-carb, gluten-free, vegan flatbread recipe…this is for you! Not quite like traditional flatbread, but equally yummy in its own right. Crisp on the outside, doughy in the middle and completely kid-friendly. Almost a whole head of cauliflower is used as the base of this recipe, making it a great way to sneak in veggies!.

Rosemary Cauliflower Flatbread [Vegan, Grain-Free]



  • 1 head of cauliflower (3 cups of cauliflower “rice”)
  • 3/4 cups flour of your choice (gluten-free or grain-free if necessary), see notes
  • 3 flax eggs (3 tablespoons flax seed meal mixed with 9 tablespoons water)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon rosemary or herb of your choice such as dried basil, oregano or thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together flax seed meal and water in a small bowl, set aside.
  3. Make “cauliflower rice” by adding cauliflower florets to a food processor and pulsing until rice-like. Depending on the size of your food processor you may need to do this step in small batches.
  4. In a large bowl, mix together 3 packed cups of cauliflower rice, flax “eggs,” flour, salt, olive oil, and rosemary.
  5. Place dough on parchment paper and use hands to flatten to 1/2-inch thick.
  6. Place in oven and cook for 40-45 minutes or until golden and crispy. Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of flatbread, keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.
  7. Remove from oven, add toppings of your choice and enjoy. If adding toppings that should be served warm, return to oven for 5-7 minutes or until warmed through.


If using coconut flour, add more flax eggs and/or olive oil because coconut flour absorbs a ton of liquid.
