Recipe: Cauliflower Crust Pizza!

Are you tired of paying high prices for gluten free/ dairy free pizza crusts?

Are you looking for a healthier way to enjoy pizza?

Are you looking for a new way to get more veggies?

If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then this recipe is for you!

There are a ton of cauliflower crust pizza recipes on the web, but this is how I make my cauliflower crust pizzas.


1 large head of cauliflower
1 cup Daiya Mozzarella "cheese" for crust (optional)
3 eggs
Italian seasoning, oregano, garlic, pinch of sea salt
Favorite pizza toppings


1. Wash your cauliflower and cut off stems. We don't need stems, only the heads of the cauliflower.

2. Put your cauliflower heads into the food processor. Pulse until it looks like rice. Don't pulse too much or it will be a puree, we don't want puree. 

Microwave the cauliflower rice for 6-8 minutes covered, until cooked. Do not add water, it has enough moisture to steam.

3. In a bowl, combine your eggs, cauliflower "rice", and Daiya (optional). Add a pinch of sea salt, and season with remaining seasonings to your liking. Mix with an electric mixer, approx 1 1/2 - 2 min.

4. Spray olive oil or cooking spray onto a baking sheet. 

5. Pour enough mixture for one crust onto baking sheet, spread with spatula until it is an even circle.  ( Make sure not to spread too thin or crust will be floppy)

6. Bake at 450 degrees, for approx. 15 minutes. or until edges start to brown.

7. Remove crust from oven. Top with pizza sauce, dairy free cheese & favorite toppings. 

8. Put back into oven until cheese is melted. ( The cooking time varies depending on whether you use dairy free cheese or regular cheese).

Your oven may be different, so adjust temperature and cooking time to suit your needs. Please cook any food containing eggs thoroughly.

Don't burn the cheese :)
