Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I love me some pizza. Tomatoes, bread, and cheese- what’s not to love? Unfortunately, my body has now come to a heart breaking conclusion that I can’t have it every day like in college. Pinterest came to my rescue with this healthy cauliflower crust pizza from One Little Project at a Time! It isn’t as crispy or chewy like pizza, but it is a yummy healthier replacement. Plus, it’s a great way to sneak veggies into a meal for kids! Try it for yourself! 

Cook time: 20 minutes 

Makes: one 10 inch pizza 


1 small head of cauliflower, cut into florets

1⁄4 cup Parmesan cheese

1⁄4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

1⁄4 tsp salt

1⁄2 tsp dried basil

1⁄2 tsp dried oregano

1⁄2 tsp garlic powder

1 large egg

Olive oil for brushing


1. Pre-heat oven to 450°F.

2. Process the cauliflower florets in a food processer until it looks like rice. Pour the cauliflower “rice” into a microwaveable bowl. Cover and microwave for 4 minutes. 

3. Dump the cauliflower “rice” onto a paper towel and clean cheese cloth. Let the cauliflower cool. Once cool, wring out as much water as you can. This is important to get a firm dough!

4. Add all the ingredients with the cauliflower into a large bowl and mix. Use your hands to form the dough into a ball.

5. Place the dough on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper sprayed with cooking oil. Use your hands to pat the dough out into a 1⁄4 inch thick pizza crust. 

6. Brush the crust with a little bit of olive oil and bake for 10 minutes. 

7. Remove from the oven and top with your favorite sauce, cheese and toppings. Bake for another 7-10 minutes. I put mine under the broiler until the cheese started brown as well, which is optional. Enjoy while hot!
