Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  • Total Time: 25-30 minutes
  • Yield: Two 10-inch pizza crusts 1x


Cauliflower pizza crust is nutty and soft unlike “normal” pizza. It’s a fantastic veggie-filled, gluten-free pizza that works with any toppings.


  • 11/4 pounds cauliflower florets, roughly chopped
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower until it resembles crumbs. In a large bowl, stir together the cauliflower, almond meal, Parmesan, eggs, salt and pepper. Pat the dough into two 10-inch-diameter circles, one on each prepared sheet pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.


Suggested toppings:

I roasted thinly sliced zucchini in the oven for 10 minutes while baking the pizza. I spread tomato sauce on the crust and topped it with zucchini, arugula, micro greens, shaved Parmesan and dollops of pesto.

For a traditional cheese pizza, I spread tomato sauce and sprinkled on shredded mozzarella. I put the pizza under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to melt the cheese.
