Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I found this awesome recipe for a low carb gluten-free pizza. I tweaked a few seasonings, and added a few toppings, but seriously the best cauliflower crust out there. 



1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower - should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese¼ cup low moisture mozzarella cheese1 egg¼ teaspoon Celtic salt½ teaspoon garlic powder½ teaspoon dry basil ½ teaspoon dry oregano

1 cup marinara sauce (see recipe below)1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
Handful parmesan cheese


Thinly sliced red and green peppers
Sliced black olives
Sliced white mushrooms
Broccoli tops (steamed)
Zucchini slices
Sliced red onion
Artichoke hearts

Marinara Sauce:

1 small mini can of tomato sauce. Add a hefty sprinkle of garlic powder. oregano, basil, and onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat. Spoon onto baked pizza crust.


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

    1. 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.

    2. 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 possible.

    3. 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. 

    4. Bake the crust for approximately 10-15 minutes (depending on your oven), or until the crust is golden and crispy. I prefer my crust after 15 minutes. After the crust is golden remove it from the oven and add your toppings. (I always put way too many veggies on my pizza which makes it harder to eat with my hands)

    5. Turn your oven to Broil on High. Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for about 2-5 minutes until the cheese melts. Watch your pizza carefully. You don't want to burn your toppings.
