Low Carb Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe

If you love pizza and are looking for something grain-free and a little healthier, then you have probably heard of and considered cauliflower crust pizza.

Personally, I find that there are three rules of cauliflower crust pizza:

  • Use parchment paper, not tinfoil and not a well-oiled baking dish (trust me on this!)
  • Make sure the cauliflower isn’t wet AT ALL. Drain it on a paper towel if you have to.
  • Make the crust as thin as possible.

I have made cauliflower crust pizza about a dozen different times and every good recipe has pretty common ingredients but I find that the proportions of each one are so important. For example, parmesan cheese gets hard and crusty when it cooks, but for some reason, lots of recipes use a ton of mozzarella and no parmesan. It makes it taste more like pizza but doesn’t hold together because the mozzarella just goops when it melts. So far, this has been my best recipe for making cauliflower crust. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

  4. Lay out some paper towels and then spread out the cauliflower so that there’s little to no excess moisture left (this step is super important, otherwise it will be soggy!) cauliflower crust pizza
  5. Pour the cauliflower back in a bowl and stick in the refrigerator until it’s cooled down.
  6. Add 1/2 cup of mozzarella, the whole cup of shredded parmesan, and the egg and mix it together (don’t forget #5 or the hot cauliflower will make scrambled eggs!) cauliflower crust pizza
  7. Finally, add in the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and garlic salt. cauliflower crust pizza
  8. At this point, you can decide to pour it all out into a baking sheet and use your palms to make it as flat as possible, or you can make small little rounds for individual pizzas. Personally, I’d go for the smaller pizzas for a more dense crust. cauliflower crust pizza
  9. Now stick it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. It may take less time if you make little pizzas, just take it out when it starts to get golden brown.                        cauliflower crust pizza
  10. Add your sauce of choice and top with the remaining mozzarella cheese. You might even throw some carb-free pepperonis on top! Throw it back in the oven on broil for about 3 minutes, until it looks done. Enjoy! cauliflower crust pizza
