Homemade Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Was Saturday night pizza night for anyone else growing up? My quarantine crew and I are having a bit of a pizza party over here in LA. Here’s a great recipe for a cauliflower pizza crust that even your pickiest of eaters will love. Enjoy! 

Homemade Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Homemade Cauliflower Pizza Crust


  • 1.5 pounds cauliflower florets
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese or 1/3 cup soft cheese— I used goat’s.
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 400 F.
  • Stem your cauliflower and grate the heads using a food processor or grater until small and rice-like.
  • Salute your cauliflower rice in a pan for 8-10 minutes or until soft. Let it cool.
  • Drain the cauliflower using a nut milk bag or a thin, clean kitchen towel. Squeeze until all of the excess moisture is out of the cauliflower.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the drained cauliflower rice, cheese, egg and seasoning. Use your hands to combine together, until it forms a dough.
  • On a parchment lined baking sheet, form the dough into a large, even circle. The diameter should be around 9 inches, but this depends on how crispy you like your crust.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Flip the crust over and bake for an additional 5-10 or until slightly golden.
  • Add desired toppings and bake for 10 minutes. I topped mine with homemade pesto sauce, artichoke hearts, caramelized onions and spinach but use what you have! Enjoy 🙂

    Just made this tonight for dinner and it was delicious! I used Melissa Wood’s (from Melissa Wood Health) homemade vegan Parmesan in place of the cheese in the crust and it was so good! Will definitely be making this again!

    My crust was great until I added toppings. Then my crust was no longer crispy. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you!

      Hi Tracy! Make sure you aren’t using a lot of wet toppings on the crust. Also, it’s really important to get all of the liquid out of the crust before you add anything on it.
