Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust – A Diabetes-Friendly Pizza Crust

I had no idea that we can make so much healthy recipes using cauliflower. The cauliflower pizza crust is the healthiest pizza crust ever. It contains only 3 ingredients: half grated cauliflower, 1 egg and 1/2 cup of grated cheese – I used italian parmesan. The other good point with this recipe is the time it required. Only 3 minutes of microwave is required to cook the grated cauliflower and few minutes of hand mixing to form the crust.

You are probably wondering how it taste? It actually taste great. Of course it taste like cheesy cauliflower softer than a classic pizza crust but still crusty on the sides. I topped my crust with fresh tomato paste, flat button mushroom, grated mozzarella cheese and fresh basil leaves. Simple, quick, healthy and so tasty. Another great idea to transform a usually unhealthy dish into a nutritious meal perfect for the whole family, even the small ones. Of course because it is a flourless pizza crust it is also a perfect gluten-free pizza crust option.

  • 1 head of medium size cauliflower 5 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup grated mozarella


  • Preheat oven to 200C (400F).
  • Prepare a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spray some oil on top to avoid the crust to stick. Set aside. 
  • Place the half of the cauliflower florets into a food processor with the S blade attachment. Process for 30 seconds, stop, scrap drown the bottom and sides. Repeat for 30 seconds until all the florets are pulsed into a fine cauliflower rice - it will looks like couscous/semolina. Transfer the cauliflower rice into a microwave safe glass bowl. Process the over half of cauliflower florets until pulsed into rice and transfer into the glass bowl.
  • Cover the glass bowl with a microwave safe lid. Microwave for 5-6 minutes. Remove from the microwave with oven mitten - be careful it is super hot! 
  • Transfer the hot cauliflower rice onto a clean towel. Squeeze as firm as you can to release all the water. Again it is hot so use your oven mitten to avoid burning your hands.
  • Open the towel, you should obtain a dry ball of cooked cauliflower rice. Transfer into a bowl, add spices, salt and cheese. Combine with a spatula. The cheese will melt and the cauliflower pizza crust is forming.
  • Press the cauliflower crust onto the prepared baking sheet. Press with your hands to form a round pizza. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the borders are crispy. Spread your favorite pizza toppings like tomato sauce, vegetables and extra mozzarella cheese. 
  • Bake again for 15 minutes until your toppings are cooked and cheese is melted.

  1. do you preface this? I dont see further instructions on this except the 3 ingredients and cooking califlower in microwave.


    • Sorry there was an issue wih the recipe plugin not showing the recipe it is fixed now ! Enjoy the crust. XOXO Carine.

    • Hi, Unfortunately no. It won’t hold together. The cooked cauliflower is soft and the cheese stick to it creating the most delicious soft, crispy pizza crust when baked. Enjoy the recipe my friend. XOXO Carine.

  2. Holy Smokes! Just made this for me and my husband (the man who refuses to eat veggies). Not only did he devour it, he asked when I could make more. Huge success, THANKS!

  3. Just made this and it is PERFECT!! I added some finely diced leeks since I didn’t have quite enough cauliflower after having used the rest to make cauliflower mash earlier this week. I also had more like 2/3-3/4 cup of parmesan.

    • That is great! It is nice to read positive comments 🙂 Leek should taste good as well a must try for my next one. I recently tested broccoli instead of cauliflower and except the strange greenish color for a pizza it taste awesome !

  4. I’ve been wanting to try cauliflower pizza crust forever and just simply haven’t gotten around to it. You have solidified I must make it and soon because this looks to delicious and too easy to not try! Thanks!
