The Secret to a Perfect Cauliflower Pizza Crust
After many attempts on creating this Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe, I can confidently tell you that the secret to the perfect cauliflower pizza crust that won´t fall apart, is to drain your boiled cauliflower extremely well. By removing the majority of the liquid, the cauliflower ends up with a paste like texture, this is the main deal here on getting that perfect finished texture folks. After that, I add an egg to hold everything together, some shredded Manchego cheese for substance and a bunch of herbs and spices to really bring some great flavors to this amazing cauliflower pizza crust. Watch the video below on how to make this Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe or print out the recipe card below. Happy eating!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe
- -1 head cauliflower
- -1 large organic egg
- -1/2 cup Manchego cheese
- -1/2 tsp dried oregano
- -1/2 tsp dried parsley
- -1/2 tsp garlic powder
- -1/2 tsp sea salt
- -marinara sauce
- -fresh mozzarella
- -fresh basil
Remove the outer leaves from a head of cauliflower, cut it in half and then into 4 quarters, cut off the stalk and start removing small florets, add the florets to a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower has a rice like texture (if your food processor is small pulse the cauliflower in batches)
Add the cauliflower to a sauce pan, fill up half way with water and heat it with a medium-high heat, cook for about 10 minutes, then drain the cauliflower through a sieve, after letting it cool off for about 5 minutes, add the cauliflower to a flour sack towel and start draining all the liquid, drain as much liquid as you can (this is the secret to the perect texture of a caulifower pizza crust)
Add the drained cauliflower to a bowl, make a well in the middle and add 1 large organic egg and beat it, then add 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley, 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and 1/2 cup of finely shredded Manchego cheese, mix everything together until well combined
Add the cauliflower mixture onto a piece of parchment paper, using your hands combine the mixture together and start flattening it out into a circular shape, about a 1/4 inch of thickness, add to a baking tray and into a pre-heated oven 210 C -410 F for 35 minutes
Once your cauliflower pizza crust is done, top it off with your favorite sauce and toppings and add back to the oven between 10-15 minutes, I added marinara sauce, slices of fresh mozzarella and sprinkled with some dried oregano
