Do you love pizza but hate the carbs? For years I told myself I didn’t like pizza just to avoid eating that high-fat, high-calorie, high-carb, oh-so-divine dish. I have a solution. If you want a little healthier approach try out this delicious cauliflower pizza crust! A great alternative that will nix that carbs!
Making a Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Making a cauliflower pie crust is easy, and honestly tastes pretty darn good. First you take the cauliflower florets and make them into cauliflower rice by putting it into your blender or food processor. Once you have cauliflower rice you want to microwave it to soften. Cauliflower has a lot of moisture in it. It’s crazy. So you need to wring out allll that water using cheese cloth or paper towel.
Mix all the ingredients together and form into a nice crust on your favorite pizza sheet. I personally love thin crust pizza’s so I made mine thinner. This will change the baking time depending on how thick your crust is. Either way, after your crust is formed pop it in the oven until it is nice a golden brown.

Top with your fav toppings – I’ve been really into white pizza lately, so I opted for Alfredo sauce instead of red, three cheese, and a little pepperoni. But go wild! We have so many pizza ideas here on the blog. Maybe try topping it like our Roasted Veggie and Ricotta Pizza, or our Greek Pesto Pizza, or our BBQ Chicken Pizza, or our Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza…just to name a few.
Add all the toppings you want and bake for another 10 minutes or so till all the toppings are warm and the cheese is ooey gooey melted. Pizza night with zero guilt!
