Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I've been eating this for a while but never thought to share it!

Doesn't it look yummy?

3 cups grated cauliflower (about 1/2 a large head)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Grate the cauliflower using a box grater until you have three cups of cauliflower crumbles. Place in a large bowl and microwave for seven to eight minutes, or until soft. Remove from the microwave and let cool.
  3. Mix in the egg, one cup mozzarella, & parmesan cheese. Once combined, pat into a 10-inch round on the prepared pizza pan. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden.
Top with pizza sauce & your choice of toppings, then put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes.

Let it cool before you try to take it off of the parchment paper.

If you try it let me know :)


  1. I made it tonight!! I didn't use parchment paper, but lightly sprayed foil. I only put in the parmesan cheese and some garlic powder. It didn't stay together as well as the one in your picture, but it's still good. I made it into smaller crusts. I count calories, so I was trying to keep it low-cal leaving out the, I read other recipes that said you could. Lesson learned though, I will do it your way next time!!

    Thanks for this though...I just discovered I like cauliflower (from your mashed recipe) and zucchini so I'm always looking for new ways to cook.

  2. I'm assuming you use the remaining mozzarella cheese as a topping? I can't wait to try this!

  3. We made this last night. It was DELICIOUS, and much richer/more filling than I expected. I had leftovers! I think we should have let it crisp up a bit more than we did.

    Thank you! I logged it on My Fitness Pal & called it "Tanee Janusz's Cauliflower Pizza Crust in my log.

  4. I tried this tonight and thought it was pretty good! The flavor of the crust was good, but it didn't get crispy at all. I wish I knew what I could've done differently to make it more crispy. Maybe squeeze some water out of the cauliflower before baking and putting it all together? Thanks!

    1. Getting as much water out of the cauliflower does help....I've found that if you put it directly on a pizza stone it'll make it crisper too if that helps

  5. Ive made these for a while now. Love them. I usually make mine: finely chop a clove of fresh garlic add to a tbs of olive oil and brush on to already baked crust. Add a little feta cheese some raw baby spinich some grilled chicken then top with a little mozzerella. Bake until golden. Yum!
