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.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust
- 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.
