Cauliflower Pizza Crust!


Warning- this literally took forever to make!! Next warning- It was sooooooooo worth it and delish!!

I know I am late to the cauliflower crust party but I had to jump on board. I have collected a million recipes and just went with the most simple one.

Ingredients for crust- 1 head of cauliflower, 1 egg, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and spices like oregano and a bit of sea salt. Also, toppings. I used mozzarella, pepperoni, yellow pepper, and mushrooms.

Clean and cut cauliflower into florets. Use a food processor or a blender and rice your cauliflower into little pieces. Do small batches. I had to do about 6. If you don't have a food processor or blender, start chopping with a knife? Good Luck!

Riced cauliflower! Now you are on your way. Boil about one inch of water.

Now comes the fun part (not really). We have to strain the cauliflower. I started with a simple mesh strainer and switched to paper towels to really press out the water. You have to get the cauliflower rice completely dry or you will have a crappy crust!

Most people use a tea towel. I had no such thing. One whole roll of paper towels gone and finally the rice was dry!

Your oven should be on 400. Layer parchment paper on a baking sheet. Shape your dough into whatever shape you want.  We made a slightly higher crust for a more pizza effect.

I give this pizza a 10/10. I will for sure be making this crust again. Being on low carb this crust is a miracle. It’s amazing!

  1. I love this! It isn’t junked up with a lot of other ingredients. I do not do low carb but I do try to cut my carbs and not go overboard. I don’t think people realize how many carbs they eat. I’m definitely going to try this. I made creamy cauliflower soup for Christmas, so I do like cauliflower 🙂

  2. I have baked cauliflower in an all glass bowl with lid in a toaster oven at 275 degrees for 55 minutes……. the “”RICE”” could be baked too
    so much work – fabu – that u did it –
    I might try to mass produce it , making 5 at a time ? freezing raw cauliflower crust and wrapping in aluminum foil and then in ziplocks
    thanks for the pics !
