Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I will be the first to admit that this is not the same as regular pizza crust, but if you are willing to give it a try and understand it isn’t a crust made with flour and yeast, it really is pretty tasty. It’s also an easy way to get extra veggies.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust


2 cups raw, riced cauliflower*

2 egg white or 1 egg, slightly beaten

1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese (more can be added)

1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced

Mrs. Dash or Nature’s Seasoning (or any other diced veggies or seasonings) to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  2. Steam raw cauliflower for about 2 minutes in the microwave. I usually do this in a Ziploc bag after the cauliflower has been grated. Dry thoroughly with a kitchen towel. It is very important that the cauliflower is as dry as possible.
  3. In a large bowl add remaining ingredients and mix well. I added some diced red pepper and green onions to the crust.
  4. Press the mixture onto the parchment paper to resemble a pizza crust.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Baking time may vary depending on your oven temperature and how crispy you like your crust. Cauliflower Pizza Crust 1
  6. Remove crust from oven and top with your favorite toppings. My favorite way to top this crust is with BBQ sauce, Mozzarella cheese, grilled chicken and white and green onions. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes before cutting.Grilled Chicken on Cauliflower Crust

*For this recipe one head of cauliflower will yield about 4 cups of riced cauliflower. There are several methods of making the riced cauliflower, but I just grate it with an all purpose grater onto a plate.
