Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ok, I have been completely skeptical of this whole cauliflower pizza crust I had been reading about on various blogs… but, I want pizza and since traditional crusts contain either a) gluten, or b) sugar, I needed to bite the bullet and try it.  I am SOOOO glad that I did!  It was delicious, nutty, and crisp.

When you make this pizza, you can’t go into it expecting it to taste like a typical pizza crust.  My husband likened it to a flatbread pizza (at some fancy pizza shoppe – such a complement!) and as long as that is your expectation, you won’t be disappointed.

I loved that it was so healthy, even sneaking in a few veggies for the boys and that it was completely sugar-free!  Amazing!

Disclaimer – it is a bit putzy and is a bit messier than making traditional pizza crusts.  However, I was able to get about 4 cups of cauliflower ‘rice’ from one head of cauliflower and was able to make 4 crusts.  We ate two of them and I baked and froze two more for future use.  You could also, if you don’t have the time to make all the crusts, simply measure out the cauliflower ‘rice’ into freezer bags and save for future pizzas.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Recipe from

1 c. cooked cauliflower ‘rice’ (directions below)
2 c. almond flour/meal
6 1/2 Tbsp. arrowroot powder
3 Tbsp. flaxseed meal
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. dried basil
1 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil


Make the cauliflower ‘rice’. Place cauliflower, chopped into pieces into a food processor and chop until it is the texture or rice or even couscous. Place ‘rice’ in a large skillet with a small amount of oil and cook for 5-7 minutes until tender.
Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine 1 c. of the cauliflower ‘rice’ and the remaining ingredients and mix until well combines and ends up forming a ball of dough.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and press dough into the pan using the back of a spatula.

Preheat the oven to 375 and bake crust for 20-23 minutes or until desired crispy-ness. Remove from oven, top with favorite ingredients and bake for another 12-15 minutes until cheese is melted. Enjoy!

  1. This looks tasty! I’d made cauliflower crust pizza before, but it included eggs. I’ve been looking for a recipe that doesn’t and this looks perfect!
