Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust

 

Cheesy low carb pizza crust made completely from cauliflower! A DELICIOUS and healthy option for pizza night.

Important Tips for Making This Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  • Use a food processor or high powered blender to finely chop up cauliflower into really small rice size pieces.
  • Use a clean, thin dish towel to thoroughly ring out as much moisture/liquid from chopped cauliflower as possible. This will help the pizza not be soggy or watery.
  • Form your crust on the thinner side to help the pizza crisp more in the oven.

Questions About Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  • Does cauliflower pizza crust taste good? Absolutely. It has a slight cauliflower taste, but you taste more cheese, tomato sauce, and herbs when eating – and it completely satisfies all of my pizza cravings. In fact, I crave cauliflower pizza just as much as regular pizza!
  • Can you make cauliflower pizza crust without a food processor? Yes – you can use a high powered blender and chop cauliflower in shifts. Or, if you have the patience, chop cauliflower with a large knife into small rice pieces. You can also purchase cauliflower rice to make this recipe.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium sized cauliflower ( or 3 cups pre-made cauliflower rice)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt + pepper (each)
  • 1 egg

Toppings

  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Chop cauliflower in rough pieces and place in food processor or high powdered blender – chop on high until cauliflower is really fine small pieces – I do this in small batches. Place in a thin dish towel and completely ring out extra moisture/water from cauliflower – this process is easier to do in small batches.

  2. MIX: Add cauliflower to bowl with egg, oregano, garlic powder, salt & pepper, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese.

  3. SHAPE: Lay parchment paper on a pizza pan, or lightly oiled pan, and add cauliflower dough. Press tightly together and form into a circle, make sure it’s on the thinner side.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and add sauce, cheese, and other desired toppings. Bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool for several minutes, slice and eat!
