Cauliflower Pizza Crust
This gluten-free crust made of cauliflower has a texture very much like regular pizza crust. It’s delicious without all the guilt.
Two years ago, I read food blog posts of people raving about cauliflower pizza crust. I had zero interest in trying it back then. But after successfully making several cauliflower substitute recipes, I wanted to give it a try. And I finally understand what all the fuss was about!
This pizza crust is tasty. Yes, it tastes like cauliflower. But it also has a crispy, bready, chewy texture just like thin-crust pizza. Even Mr. K couldn’t stop raving about it.
I’m trying to stay on the healthier eating course, especially after our trip to New Orleans. We both loved how this turned out. I topped it with low fat mozzarella and turkey pepperoni. I plan on making this again and work on improving upon this recipe.

- 1 head cauliflower
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp Italian herb seasoning
- cornmeal for dusting
- turkey pepperoni
- 1-2 cups low fat shredded mozzarella
Cut cauliflower into small florets and place into food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower becomes the size of small grains of rice.
Pour cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl. Cover with a paper towel and cook for 2-3 minutes until cauliflower is soft.
Pour cooked cauliflower into a cheesecloth or clean, thin dish towel. Wring and squeeze towel to remove water from the cauliflower. The dryer the cauliflower is, the better your crust will turn out.
Place drained cauliflower into a medium bowl. Add egg, cheese, and herb seasoning. Mix with a large wooden spoon to combine.
Preheat oven to 450°F. Generously dust the surface of a pizza stone with cornmeal. Place pizza dough ball on top, and spread out and flatten to form round, thin crust.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes until crust turns golden. Remove from oven. Add turkey and pepperoni. Place back in oven and cook until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.
