Friday Fun: Cauliflower Pizza Crust


I am hoping your week is going well. Mine was rough, but God is so good and brought me to the point where I remembered to trust him and choose Joy. I love it when he does that!!

Last night I finally made something I have had on my Pintrest food board for a while now, Cauliflower pizza crust.. Sounds weird right? I actually have been experimenting with cauliflower a lot lately. I made mashed potatoes a couple of weeks and now pizza crust!

The recipe came straight from Eat Drink Smile, except I added less cheese. Her’s looks better than mine turned out!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust


1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese——-> I only used 1/2 cup of light
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
olive oil (optional)

pizza sauce, shredded cheese and your choice of toppings*



To “Rice” the Cauliflower:
Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don’t have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater). Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself.

One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

To Make the Pizza Crust:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9″ round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven. To the crust, add sauce, toppings and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes).


*Note that toppings need to be precooked since you are only broiling for a few minutes.


Can you guess which one is mine???


it actually turned out really great! I added pesto, goat cheese, peaches, smoked salmon and arugula.


If you are gluten free this would be perfect!!!

Question: Have you ever experimented with cauliflower before?
