cauliflower pizza crust

A couple weeks ago, make that a month ago, I posted some recipes that I wanted to test out. One such curious recipe was for cauliflower crust pizza. I tried out this crust recipe from Recipe Girl a couple weeks ago and it was delicious!

The rich flavor blew me away, so I knew that it wouldn’t be long before I tried my hand at another. I tweaked Recipe Girl’s recipe a bit to make a mega pizza, because we do things in mega-style in my house.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup mozzerella
  • 1/4 cup parmesan

1. Rice cauliflower using food processor. Or, if you’re the ambitious type, you can do it by hand.

2. Place riced cauliflower in large bowl and microwave for 10 minutes, and set aside and let cool for 5 minutes.

3. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

4. Mix in remaining ingredients, then spread on a greased large baking sheet.

5. Cook for roughly 20 minutes, until crust begins to brown.

6. Remove crust and top with your choice of toppings. Here’s your chance to get creative. For one side of my pizza, I layered with pesto, mozzerella then sauteed green veggies (zucchini, broccoli, asaparagus, kale) and crumbled bacon. For the other side, I went with the classic of ground beef and marinara with mozzerella and turkey pepperoni on top.

7. Bake for 10 more minutes.

    Thanks for posting this. Since I went gluten free I just decided to skip pizza entirely or eat it for the rare cheat meal. I had heard of the cauliflower crust but had not seen a simple laid out tutorial on the method and ingredients. This does sound good! Looking forward to trying it!

  2. I’ve made this and it is really good. Hard to believe it’s cauliflower. I make a lot of cauliflower based meals like that are so interesting

  3. I saw a recipe for something like this before somewhere and I’ve had it saved for a while. I really wanna make this soon. Looks so great!

    Hi I actually don’t own a microwave and was wondering if there are any alternative methods for this step?

      Hi Autumn, I’ve never tried another method, but I wonder if you could boil it just a few minutes, then lay it out on paper towels to dry a bit. Microwaving just cooks it a little so you can spread it out evenly. Seems like boiling would work, but don’t quote me 🙂

        Thanks Haley! I know it’s crazy not to own a microwave…but what can I say I’m oldschool! I thought boiling it quickly and then ricing it might work too… I’ll give it try! Thanks for your help and quick reply
