Have you tried Minimal installation?

Maybe Minimal would be … too minimal! So you can get a list of installed applications using:

for app in /usr/share/applications/*.desktop; do echo "${app:24:-8}"; done

and then remove what you want (be careful because of dependencies and … better remove than purge in case you aren’t sure about what you’re purging) with

sudo apt remove <list of packages>

Another (more complicated) way of customizing, is managing live CD from scratch in chroot trap, removing what you don’t need and adding what you want, then regenerating squashfs and mastering it into a new iso.
