Cauliflower Pizza Crust that’s Cheeseless, Low Carb, and Grain-Free


Every time I see cauliflower pizza crust as a menu option, I know it isn’t dairy-free. Most recipes use cheese, and lots of it, to make the crust cohesive. But this dairy-free cauliflower pizza crust is completely cheese-less! It’s still gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, and relatively low-carb, but it’s a lighter option made with simple, wholesome ingredients.

Cook time

This recipe is infused with cauliflower, that's finely minced, but not pureed, to help provide a tender structure. Raw cauliflower minces rather easily in most blending appliances. I've even pulsed it in a personal-size blender (in batches) with good results.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4 servings
  1. Pulse the cauliflower, in 2 batches, in a food processor or blender 10 times, or until it reaches a rice-like consistency. Makes about 3 cups.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in the almond flour, seasoning, salt, and cauliflower until well combined.
  3. Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
  4. Transfer the cauliflower mixture to your prepared pan, and with your hands, shape it into a 12-inch circle that's about ½-inch thick.
  5. Bake the crust for 25 minutes or until the edge start to brown.
  6. Remove the cauliflower crust from the oven, and top as desired. Bake the pizza for 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
