Cauliflower Crust pizza

Cauliflower crust pizza is a popular and low-carb alternative to traditional pizza crust. Here’s a basic recipe to make a delicious cauliflower crust pizza:

Cauliflower Crust Pizza:


For the Cauliflower Crust:

  • 1 medium-sized cauliflower head, riced (about 4 cups of cauliflower rice)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs

For Topping:

  • Pizza sauce
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (e.g., pepperoni, bell peppers, mushrooms, olives)


  1. Prepare the Cauliflower:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
    • Rice the cauliflower by using a food processor or a cheese grater until it resembles fine grains.
  2. Cook the Cauliflower:
    • Place the riced cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 4-5 minutes or until softened. Alternatively, you can steam the cauliflower on the stovetop.
  3. Drain Excess Moisture:
    • Allow the cooked cauliflower to cool slightly. Then, transfer it to a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial for a firm crust.
  4. Make the Cauliflower Dough:
    • In a bowl, combine the squeezed cauliflower with shredded mozzarella, grated Parmesan, dried oregano, garlic powder, and salt. Mix well.
    • Add the eggs and mix until you have a uniform dough.
  5. Form the Crust:
    • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the cauliflower dough in the center and shape it into a round pizza crust, about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Pre-Bake the Crust:
    • Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until it turns golden brown.
  7. Add Toppings:
    • Remove the crust from the oven and spread pizza sauce over the surface. Add shredded mozzarella and your favorite toppings.
  8. Finish Baking:
    • Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Slice and Serve:
    • Allow the cauliflower crust pizza to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Enjoy your homemade cauliflower crust pizza, a tasty and low-carb alternative! Feel free to get creative with toppings and customize it to your liking.
