Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Looking for a healthy pizza recipe? I love pizza and have had fun trying many different homemade doughs. Dealing with gestational diabetes this pregnancy though, I needed something low-carb and delicious to help with that pizza craving. 😉 I just tried this recipe for CAULIFLOWER CRUST PIZZA and I loved it! It did take me a little bit of work to get the cauliflower shredded up and squeezed out, but it was worth it (and hey, I got an excellent hand workout in the midst of it haha). I got the recipe from: She really nailed the recipe! Did I mention how delicious it was??? I was skeptical before trying it, but my pizza craving forced me to give it a try. 😉 I changed the recipe a little (mostly because I had almond flour on hand, not cocoanut flour).  And I wanted to throw in a few extra seasonings and cheese. So, here is my version of a cauliflower crust pizza that is to-die for! It makes one small pizza, so I like to double it and freeze one of the pizzas. To freeze, after topping the pizza, wrap pan in tinfoil and freeze. Thaw before baking!


  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cauliflower (I shredded mine in my vitamix, a food processor would also work great!)
  • 1 egg
  • 2TBsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF
  2. Cook shredded cauliflower in large bowl in microwave for 6 minutes (or for a healthier option: bake in oven on baking sheet till fully cooked).
  3. Once the cauliflower has cooled down – put it in a cheese cloth and squeeze, squeeze, SQUEEZE, until you get most of the liquid out. (Now is the time to get those hands toned 😉
  4. Put the cauliflower mash into a bowl and add the egg, almond flour, cheese, and spices. Stir well.
  5. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet (or pizza pan) lined with parchment paper and spread into a thin crust. Pinch the corners up.
  6. Bake at 425ºF for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. (Mmmm can you smell it!? This is the point where I started getting excited hehe).
  7. Top the pizza with your desired toppings (sauce, cheese, veggies, fully cooked meat).
  8. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  9. Slice, serve, and enjoy!


Here is a picture I proudly snapchatted to my family 😉 and I realized I forgot to take any other pictures haha so this is the best I have for now. When I pull out my frozen one, I will add more pictures.


LET ME LNOW HOW YOUR PIZZA TURNED OUT! What were your favorite toppings? :)

  1. I have tried this before and loved it! However, it takes forever to make with 6 kids. I haven’t mustered the energy to try again:) It looks like we are due around the same time. Baby number 7 is due Oct 1st.
