Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Updated: Mar 27


  1. One whole head cauliflower chopped into florets and then riced in a food processor

  2. 1 beaten egg

  3. 1/3 cup goats cheese or freshly grated Pecorino Parmesan or shredded buffalo mozzarella cheese

  4. 2 tsp dried Italian seasoning

  5. Pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F

  • If you are using fresh cauliflower florets, steam the cauliflower until tender

  • If you are using frozen cauliflower florets, ensure it is completely thawed and drain excess liquid

  • Rice the florets in a food processor (you may have to do this in batches)

  • Place rice into a dishtowel or nut milk bag and squeeze out any water - REALLY squeeze. All excess moisturize needs to be extracted!! (Be careful if the cauliflower is still hot - you can let it cool first)

  • Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl (Keep in mind that this will not look or feel like traditional pizza dough)

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and press the dough out on it (it will stick to the pan so make sure to use parchment paper!)

  • The dough should be even and around 1/4 to 1/2" thick

  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the crust is golden and dry

  • Using the parchment paper, flip the crust over and bake again on the other side for another 10 to 15 minutes or until golden and dry.

  • Add your favourite sauce, toppings and cheese, and return to the oven to bake for 5 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted

  • Enjoy!

*Double the recipe and make two crusts. You can freeze the extra one to have on hand for your next craving! Inspired by Detoxinista #grainfree #glutenfree #cauliflower #cauliflowercrust #cauliflowerpizza #lectinfree #nutrition #pizza
