Easy Cauliflower Pizza Crust!

I hands down love pizza. I would eat pizza once a day if it was low calorie and socially acceptable. I have tried an almond flour pizza crust, I’ve tried a thin crust and thick crust, I’ve tried Chicago style deep dish and New York Pizza. I’m eaten pizza out of a little whole in the wall downtown San Francisco and I’ve bought take away from Little Caesars.. I really don’t discriminate!

In an effort to try and have my cake and eat it too I wanted to try the Cauliflower Pizza Crust I’ve seen floating around on the internet. I am not a fan of Cauliflower but it actually looked like it may taste okay.

I waited and waited some more for Cauliflower to not be $5 for a head because I was not going to pay $5 to just chuck something in the bin (you never know…) I tried the below recipe out on Monday night and was really surprised! The “dough” is kind of like pizzaish mashed potato and it definitely has a Cauliflower taste and smell, but when you add oregano and cheese and pizza sauce it actually tastes pretty good!

The Best Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Recipe from Gimme Delicious


  • 1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower – should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon basil or rosemary, minced (or dry)
  • ½ teaspoon oregano, minced (or dry)
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1-2 cups mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 Celsius)
  2. Remove the stems from the cauliflower and cut into chunks, Place the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse it until it resembles the texture of rice. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater or chop it very finely.
  3. Microwave the processed cauliflower uncovered in a microwave safe bowl for approximately 4-5 minutes on high. Remove it from the microwave and allow it to cool for at least 4-5 minutes. After the cauliflower is slightly cooled, place it in a kitchen towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid as humanly possible.
  4. Combine the cooked cauliflower, egg, garlic, cheese, and seasonings. Stir until a dough texture forms. Spread the cauliflower mixture out onto lightly greased parchment paper or a pizza pan in the shape of a pizza crust.
  5. Bake the crust for approximately 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven), or until the crust is golden and crispy. I cooked mine for approximately 15 minutes. After the crust is golden remove it from the oven and add your toppings, I used marinara sauce and cheese for a simple margarita pizza.
  6. Place the pizza back in the oven but this time turn on the broiler, bake for about 2-5 minutes until the cheese melts. be sure to keep an eye on it because the broiler can burn the cheese quickly.
  7. Slice and serve warm , enjoy!
