Paleo Breadsticks and Homemade Pizza Sauce

By now we've all made cauliflower pizza.  And if you are one of the last people on earth who hasn't, hello! What are you waiting for???  But for the paleo folk out there who don't do cheese, but still want the pizza like texture/flavors, and my fave, pizza sauce, here is a great substitute.

Paleo Breadsticks
1 small head of cauliflower
2 eggs
3 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and pepper

In your cuisinart, pulse your cauliflower until it's riced and transfer to microwaveable bowl.  Microwave 9 minutes, stirring halfway through, to reduce the moisture.  Refrigerate for an hour or so.  When you are ready to make the breadsticks, preheat your oven to 400 and line a baking sheet with parchment.  Mix your cauli with your eggs and seasonings and stir well.  Spread mixture out onto parchment lined sheet and use a spatula to make a nice uniform layer, about 1/6th of an inch thick.  (like that? 1/4 is too much, 1/8 too thin) and bake until it is just starting to brown on top.  At that point, remove them, cut them into strips carefully and spread them out on the pan, and put back in the oven until they are browned but not burnt.  Serve with some EVOO on top and some homemade pizza sauce!

No Cook Homemade Pizza Sauce- No sugar
1 6 oz can organic tomato paste
one can-ful water
1 tsp minced garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
3-4 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoon dried basil
salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything together, adjust seasonings to taste, refrigerate an hour-ish before serving for best results.


  1. I hadn't thought of using two eggs and leaving out the cheese - great idea! I am going to try this out the next time I get a hankering for a cauli crust pizza- then I can still have my cheese without feeling too guilty! ;)

  2. hey dawn! i know it sounds weird but works surprisingly well! i had forgotten the last few times to put cheese in the crust, which was how i figured this would work! great for those of us not doing dairy. still satisfies that pizza craving (kind of :)) Let me know how you like it!
