Cauliflower Pizza Crust

On a Low Carb diet and dying for a nice big slice of pizza? Make your pizza crust using cauliflower with this Cauliflower Pizza crust recipe.

My daughter found this recipe and  has been raving about how delicious it is. Since I love cauliflower I decided I would try it and see what all the fuss is about. We love having homemade pizza every once in a while. I don’t like eating white flour products so I make mine using whole wheat flour and it’s very good. I thought if this tastes anything like pizza crust I’m going to be in heaven. This recipe is a popular South Beach diet recipe. My daughter started on the diet a week ago. I tried the diet a few years ago and was amazed at how well you shed the pounds in a short amount of time by simply removing certain foods at certain times in the diet.

So we tried the cauliflower pizza crust and now I have another reason to love this amazing vegetable. It tasted incredible! It’s easy to make too!

You’ll need:

1 cup riced cooked cauliflower

1 egg beaten

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese olive oil toppings of your choice

First you need to rice and cook the cauliflower. Using a food processor or you can also use a hand held grater. In the food processor pulse the chopped cauliflower until it resembles a grain. Do not over pulse so it turns mushy.   Put the cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 8 minutes.

Add the beaten egg, garlic and oregano and mix together.

Spray a cookie sheet or pizza pan with oil to keep the crust from sticking to the pan.

Spread evenly. I doubled the above  recipe to make a larger pizza.

Brush the crust with olive oil to encourage browning.

Cook in a preheated 450 F oven for about 15 to 20 minutes. Mine took about 20 because I doubled the recipe. Remove from the oven when it is nice and crispy brown.

Top with your favorite toppings. I used leftover spaghetti sauce, sliced red onion and parmesan cheese.

Broil on high to heat toppings. Slice like you would any pizza and eat ๐Ÿ™‚ Verdict is… it tasted amazing. I love roasting my cauliflower in the oven and this makes a beautiful crust. You can use any topping you like to make it unique to your tastes.

Cauliflower is so nutritious too! Cauliflower is high in  dietary fiber,  folate, water, and vitamin C. A high intake of cauliflower has been associated with reduced risk of aggressive prostate cancer.

I share at these parties.

    I love making recipes with cauliflower. I have a few, but always looking for some variations. I am assuming the cauliflower is raw when you put it in the processor. Thanks.

    1. Diane says:

      Yes it raw. You steam it in the microwave after you process it. Thanks for commenting.

    Growing up, when we ate cauliflower, it was boiled and that’s about it. Now I’m discovering how versatile it can be. I’ve used it to make a healthier bechamel sauce with good results. My husband is trying to eat low carb, but we do like to make pizza now and then. Will have to try a cauliflower crust! Thank you for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo this week!

    I made this tonight and LOVED the flavor! 2 out of 3 of my kids ate it happily, and my husband, who is not a fan of cauliflower but will eat it begrudgingly, enjoyed it as well. I doubled the recipe, but after mixing it up, mine looked nothing like your photo – it was much runnier. So I added a third cup of cauliflower and no more eggs, and that helped some… but it was still too gooey for me to brush olive oil on it. I ended up baking it a couple minutes and then brushing on the olive oil once it had slightly hardened on the surface. Any tips on how to get the consistency better on the first try? I also was thinking i’d have a larger pizza by doubling the recipe, but even with the third cup of cauliflower, it still only covered 2/3 of a standard baking sheet. Maybe I chopped it too small in the food processor, or cooked it too long in the microwave? It tasted so good that I want to work on perfecting the consistency of it!
