Have you tried making a cauliflower pizza crust yet? What are you waiting for? The benefits include: a gluten free pizza option, healthier and less calories. This crust is a really good low calorie option because it is only made of cauliflower and egg. I have another recipe you can find here. This crust is a bit crisper as it also has cheese in the crust….YUM! Just be sure you dry the cauliflower reallllllly well. This takes some patience and a lot of paper towels!
CAULIFLOWER PIZZA CRUST INGREDIENTS
- 1 pound cauliflower florets
- 2 eggs
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a food processor, process cauliflower until finely chopped.
In a microwave-safe bowl, cook cauliflower for five minutes or until tender. Place cauliflower in a towel, and squeeze out excess water so it is completely dry. This takes a while! LOL
In a bowl, mix egg and cauliflower until well-combined.
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread cauliflower dough out until it resembles a pizza round. Bake for approx 35 minutes.
Top however you want (see below for sausage and peppers topping) and bake for 5 more minites until cheese and toppings have baked.

Can you please post more recipes like the Cauliflower Pizza Crust? I am diabetic and my Dr. has me on a strict diet. No breads, grains, pasta and starches. I need more healthy easy food choices. Thsnk you
Glad you are able to make that recipe!!!! Check under vegetables… I have a few other good ones!!
Use a salad spinner to dry your cauliflower, if you don’t have one get one, they are amazing, you will find yourself with much more time! I use mine almost daily!!
YOU are an absolute GENIUS!!!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This recipe works great for our Friday pizza night! Perfect for our Paleo lifestyle 😀
AWESOME! And another tip I just read is to bake both sides of the crust before topping it. I am def trying that next time!!
