Easy to Make Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

– Easy Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe –

If your anything like me, pizza is the ultimate comfort food. However, as much as I love pizza, all the carbs on it have kept me away from my beloved pizza (well, how about I don´t eat it as often as I would like 🙂 ). Until now! This Easy Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe has brought pizza back into my life! This cauliflower pizza crust is so amazing, it has an incredibly sturdy texture (just like regular dough!) and a superb flavor. There are a ton of Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipes out there, but none of them really did it for me, they tasted to much like cauliflower….lol….I guess that is normal. However, I have created a Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe that just taste sublime, not to cauliflowery (if that is even a word), and it´s low carb and gluten-free!!

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

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes
Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork


  • -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


  1. 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)
  2. 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)
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Salud!

    I’m so happy I found this recipe! I’m going to try it, but my wife bought a 1.5kg cauliflower which looks much bigger than the one in your video. Can you tell me the ratio between cauliflower rice and shredded cheese? I plan to freeze the leftover ‘rice’ to make a couple more pizzas later. Thank you 🙂

      The head I used was a little under 1 kg, so with the head you have, you should be able to make 2 pizza doughs 🙂 I add about 60 grams shredded cheese into the dough per pizza, much love

    This looks amazing. Is there a different cheese we can use as a substution?

      Yes you can use a different type of cheese if you prefer 🙂 the crust will still have the same texture, much love

    Can we omit the cheese and still achieve the crust to remain in tact?

      Without the cheese it won´t hold as good, but you can omit the cheese and replace it either with 1/4 cup flour (almond flour seems to work best) or 2 tbsp flaxseed
