Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I know what you’re thinking!  I thought the same thing.  Disgusting.  However, the comments/reviews showed that it was actually quite yummy, and I figured…I’m always up for trying a new pizza recipe, esp one that’s lower in carbs and fat than the regular recipe.  A veggie too?  Well heck, you could even call it healthy.  I warned Shannon: this is not pizza.  This is a cauliflower dish.  That way, he wouldn’t be mad when it didn’t taste like pizza.  Amazingly enough – after his first bite, his response was surprise.  He had three helpings, and asked for me to make it again the next day.  He even said he thought he liked it better than regular pizza crust.  That’s what I call a successful meal!


  • 1 cup cooked, smashed/riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for crust)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • pizza sauce
  • olive oil (optional)
  • 1/2 pd lean ground beef (or your choice of meat topping) cooked
  • Tomato sliced
  • Light mix Italian or Cheddar Cheese


To “Rice” the Cauliflower:
Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Steam until soft, then mash with potato masher until pieces are tiny, nearly the size of grain rice.  It doesn’t matter if you have a few larger chunks.
One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
To Make the Pizza Crust:
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9″ round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. To the crust, add sauce, toppings (mine was cooked lean ground beef and a tomato) and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes).
*reminder that toppings need to be precooked since you are only broiling for a few minutes.
Happy Eating Friends!~Trina
