The pizza crust is made of cauliflower instead of flour! Now you might think to yourself “Wow that sounds yucky!” but let me tell you, I am a picky eater and I have tried this recipe. And it is delicious! It tastes just like regular pizza, just with a lot less of the annoying thing we call carbs. Anyways enough chit-chatting, let’s get to business.

The Crust- Ingredients needed (serves 4):

2 cup riced cooked cauliflower (I’ll explain what that means in a second)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 egg, beaten
2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 teaspoon garlic salt

How to Rice & Cook the Cauliflower:

Start by washing the cauliflower and remove the stem. Then cut it into smaller pieces so it’ll fit in a food processor. Only use the pulse settings so the cauliflower breaks apart and looks like, you guessed it, rice. You do not want it to turn into puree so make sure to only pulse. Then remove the cauliflower and in a microwave save bowl, microwave it for 8 minutes. Your rice cooked cauliflower is ready!

How to Make the Cauliflower Crust:

I let the cooked cauliflower cool down because the thought of putting egg on piping hot cauliflower and have it turn into omelet was freaking me out. Take 2 cups of riced cauliflower and the rest of the crust ingredients and mix them together. (Note: I modified the recipe I found by lowering the amount of cheese that goes into the crust because I wanted to keep this pizza as healthy as possible. The original recipe called for double the amount of cheese in the crust.)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spray the pizza/cookie sheet with cooking spray or brush with some Olive Oil. With your hands lay down the crust mix onto the sheet. I kept the crust around 1/2 inch thick. You can also brush some Olive Oil on top of the crust to help with the browning. Cook the crust for 425 degrees for 17 minutes.

Now what?

Take the pizza out of the oven, add the pizza sauce, the amount of cheese you like, and the toppings ( I went with tomatoes, onions and jalapenos.) Cook for another 4-5 minutes, until the cheese melts. Remember that the toppings wont have too much time to cook so choose/pre-cook them accordingly. Bon Appétit!

By the way, the amount of riced cauliflower 1 head of cauliflower makes is a lot more than 2 cups. Feel free to save the left over riced cauliflower in the fridge for up to a week.

    Despite the fact there’s no pizza here.
    Jeez, if you want a pizza, eat one and be happy.

    • LOL! I could eat pizza everyday! And if I did I’d be a pretty unhealthy girl. This recipe definitely gave me a half way point where I could enjoy my favorite food and still not feel like a fatty. I do indulge in the real deal once in a while but the days when I want to be healthy, this is a great alternative. This recipe makes me happy =)

    El, I’m gluten-intolerant, so I’d feel pretty crappy if I ate a normal pizza. I haven’t tried it, but it actually sounds tastier than normal pizza base. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m not sure if I did something wrong, or had different expectations…. ‘crust’ never really sat up? It was still every soft and kind of soggy after 25mins in the oven. I wonder if using a bakers stone had something to do with it? The flavor was good… just not the texure. :\

    Thanks,
    Jeana
