This low carb cauliflower cheese bread is a fun way to eat a low carb sandwich. Easy to make and versatile too. Only 2.7g net carbs per piece.
I am a fan of cauliflower. Yes, it’s not for everyone but it is so versatile on a low carb diet. You can eat as is, make a cream sauce from it, eat instead of rice or potatoes or even as a pizza shell. Today I took the pizza shell idea and made it into sandwich bread. I used this low carb cauliflower cheese bread for my favorite sandwich with capricola and artichoke hearts and it was a delicious combination.
If this idea appeals to you then I would highly suggest you check out my chicken & vegetable cauliflower pizza. It looks and tastes great! And after the recipe card, I will share some of my favorite cauliflower posts to show you it’s versatility.
I wanted to mention that the cookie sheet below is a mini sheet. I found it at Aldi and had to buy it. It’s 6 inches by 8 inches and was perfect for 2 sandwiches or 4 pieces of cauliflower bread. They have them here and I guess they are for toaster ovens.
So all you need is riced cauliflower, eggs, cheese and a bit of garlic. Mix it all together and spread on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes until it’s nice and gold brown. Once it has cooled, cut it into pieces of bread!
Low Carb Cauliflower Cheese Bread
While this cauliflower bread is sturdy, it’s not as much as real bread. However you can pick it up and eat it like a sandwich. I think this would make a great hot ham and cheese sandwich or any kind of sandwich where the ingredients are the star. The nutrition for 1 piece of cauliflower bread is:
135 cals / 8.8g fat / 4.2g carbs / 1.5g fiber / 10.4g protein = 2.7g net carbs

My favorite cauliflower recipes!
dumb question…what is riced cauliflower? Is it something I can buy?
Hi Andrea, yes you can buy in a lot of grocery stores in the freezer section usually. However you can easily make it. Just add cauliflower florets to a food processor and pulse until it starts to look like rice grains. It’s just cauliflower that has been chopped up to look like rice. Hope that helps!
What size pan?
I mention above that I used a small cookie sheet I got at Aldi. It’s 6×8 inch pan. You could use try to bread pans or an 8×8 baking dish though it would be a bit thinner. Hope that helps!
Should this bread be refrigerated if I’m making it ahead of time to pack for a lunch?
Yes you should refrigerate this. I’ll add that to the recipe. I mention I the recipe it is sturdy but not so much as regular bread. You can hold it in your hand. Also I honestly liked it a bit warm rather than cold. I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
