My 5-Step Cauliflower Pizza recipe is quick, easy, and the the most delicious alternative to a flour-based pizza dough.

Course: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 12" pizza
  • 1 medium (1lb 6oz/630g) head of cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1 large egg
  • ¾ cup (2 ¼oz/64g)  shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup (¾ oz/21g) grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 large garlic clove crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup 5 minute pizza sauce
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Using a food processor, pulse the cauliflower in 2 batches until it resembles fine rice, roughly 30 seconds.

  2. Place cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and cover with cling wrap. Microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes (Alternatively, you can also steam the cauliflower). Let cauliflower cool for 15 minutes.

  3. Once cool enough to handle, transfer cauliflower to a clean kitchen towel. Tighly squeeze out any moisture as best you can leaving no water remaining. This will yield you best results.

  4. Next transfer cauliflower pulp to a large bowl and add in egg, mozzarella, parmesan, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and form a soft dough.

  5. Place a large piece of parchment on a baking tray. Place dough in the middle of the prepared pan and push out with your hands to form roughly a 12 inch circle. Top with my 5 minute pizza sauce, cheese and any of your favorite topping. 

  6. Bake at 425°F (215°C) on the bottom shelf for roughly 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

    Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes minutes before cutting into 8 slices and serving. This crust doesnt crisp, so you will have to enjoy it using a knife and fork.
