Cauliflower Crust PizzaI have been seeing recipes for Cauliflower Crust Pizza for a few years now and it has been on my to do list for a long time. I finally tried it. After looking at several recipes, I used this one which does not have any grain at all. While I did like the pizza, I felt the crust was too soft. It did not have the bite of a good pizza crust. Next time I try this, I would definitely add some grain. I think rice flour would be a good choice because it will have a nice crunch and still remain a #glutenfree pizza crust.

I am still presenting this version for those who like a soft crust pizza. You can add any toppings you desire as you would a regular pizza.I like putting my toppings under the cheese, but that is a personal preference. The cheese seals them underneath so that they never fall off.  You can put the toppings on top of the cheese which is more traditional, if you prefer.

I still enjoyed this pizza so much, despite the soft crust. Delicious, gluten free vegetable based pizza – great healthier alternative!

Servings: 1 10" pizza


  • 1 small head cauliflower coarsely chopped
  • cup ¼grated Asiago Parmesan or any dry aged cheese can be used
  • 1/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Topping Ingredients:

  • Transfer to a shallow bowl and microwave for 4 minutes, stirring half way through.
  • As soon as it is cool enough to handle, transfer to a clean tea towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out all of the liquid.
  • In a bowl, combine cauliflower with cheeses, salt and herbs. Mix well by hand until it comes together.
  • On a pizza peel or cutting board, place a piece of parchment paper and spray with non stick spray. Using your hands, spread the cauliflower mixture, until you have a thin round circle about 10”.
