cauliflower pizza crust

Cauliflower Pizza Crust


  • 2½ cups (approx ½ head cauliflower)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated cheese such as mozzarella
  • Salt and pepper to taste choice of herbs such as rosemary or oregano


1. Cut the cauliflower into smaller florets and blitz the cauliflower using a food processor until quite fine, but do not puree.

2. Steam them until soft, or microwave for 5 minutes.

3. Place the cooked, soft cauliflower onto a clean tea towel. Twist to remove all the liquid. If not enough liquid is removed, the pizza base will not crisp.

4. Place the drained, cooked cauliflower in a large mixing bowl and add the egg, seasoning, herbs and grated cheese. Mix well until a ball forms.

5. Prepare a baking tray lined with a non stick sheet or baking paper. Do not use a pizza stone as it will probably stick and not lift off easily.

6. Place the ball of cauliflower ‘dough’ onto the baking sheet and press out into a round pizza shape for a nice cauliflower pizza crust

7. Spray the top with some olive oil to help it crisp, then bake at 180C/350F for 15 minutes or until your cauliflower pizza crust is golden.

8. Add the toppings, cover with more cheese and cook until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
