Enjoy a healthier twist on the classic pizza with this delicious cauliflower crust recipe. Packed with flavor and nutrients, it’s the perfect guilt-free indulgence for pizza night!


  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Wash the cauliflower and cut it into florets. Place the florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble fine crumbs, similar to rice.
  3. Transfer the cauliflower crumbs to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes, until soft.
  4. Allow the cauliflower to cool slightly, then transfer it to a clean kitchen towel or cheesecloth. Squeeze out as much moisture as possible. This step is crucial for a crispy crust.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the squeezed cauliflower, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and egg. Mix well until a dough-like consistency forms.
  6. Place the cauliflower dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Use your hands to flatten and shape it into a round crust, about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  8. Once the crust is done, remove it from the oven and add your favorite pizza toppings.
  9. Return the pizza to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  10. Slice and serve hot. Enjoy your guilt-free cauliflower crust pizza!
