How can I install a minimal GNOME desktop on F22 Server?

In Fedora 22 Server I can install a minimal XFCE Desktop with the command 'dnf groupinstall "XFCE Desktop"' - this pulls down XFCE, Thunar and LightDM with not much else. To install GNOME you have to pull down the "Fedora Workstation" group, which also brings down a ton of additional packages such as Firefox, LibreOffice etc...

How can I achieve the same level of minimalism with GNOME instead of XFCE i.e. I just want gnome, gdm and the usual graphical administration tools without the extra applications.
