Cauliflower Pizza Crust

A pizza crust made with cauliflower? This can’t taste good… but it DOES!

Magic, I’m tellin’ ya.

Ryan and I tried this recipe several months ago and were amazed at how fantastic the crust turned out.

We decided to spend our Friday night in, eatin’ pizza, staying warm and messing with Sadie. ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Maybe those lingering Christmas decorations will come down tonight…)

To make the cauliflower pizza crust, we first riced cooked cauliflower in the food processor that I got for Christmas (thanks Mama!) until we had one cup of the prepped veggie.


We then added an egg and a cup of light mozzarella cheese to the cauliflower and mixed it until the ingredients formed a “dough.”

Pizza "Dough"

After pressing it onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray and sprinkling the dough with spices, we baked it at 450 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Ready for Toppings

We then took the crust out and topped it with the pizza toppings of our choice (lots o’ veggies puh-lease!). We stuck the crust back into the oven, placing it under the broiler until the cheese melted.

Pizza, Pizza

It smelled fantastic.

We split the pizza in half and dug in. Bon appetit!

My Plate


For dessert we split two little bowls of banana soft serve (just frozen bananas blended for a while in the food processor)… one plain banana and one chocolate banana. Can you guess which one I enjoyed more?

Answer: Chocolate. Always chocolate.

This evening has been quite delicious!

Hope you’re all enjoying your Friday night. Happy weekend! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Wow – this is interesting! …Did you find it was alot of cheese though…I would eat the WHOLE pizza myself…would that be too much?!?! ;)….I’ve heard of zucchini crust too…of course, nothing beats a nice soft or crispy dough ultimately ๐Ÿ™‚

    • it was definitely cheesy & i could easily eat it all myself if i didn’t have a side of veggies or something else to eat as well. i think the entire crust has less than 500 calories though.
