Cauliflower pizza crust gluten free
Whether you need to be grain free or just gluten free, this cauliflower pizza crust recipe is the perfect option. It’s my favorite grain free pizza crust.
Here are my top tips and tricks to make the best cauliflower pizza crust at home:
- Although you can rice a fresh head of cauliflower for this recipe, using a bag of frozen riced cauliflower is my favorite way to make this pizza crust because it is fast and easy
- A jelly roll baking sheet is perfect for this recipe. I love the deep edges for making the most delicious pizzas. For size, it’s pretty flexible but I like to use my 7 x 14-inch pan.
- The secret to making the best cauliflower pizza crust is to spend as much time as you can removing all of the liquid from the cauliflower before laying it out as a crust. This will make the crispiest crust that you can actually pick up while you eat it. Take your time and you should get close to 2 cups of water expelled. It takes some muscle! You might ask a strong guy to help 🙂
- When making riced cauliflower from fresh cauliflower, start by removing the leaves and cutting the florets off the stem. Place in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is a rice consistency.
- When you are removing the water from the cauliflower, you can use a simple cheesecloth or linen dish towel to squeeze out any excess liquid. This can be a bit tedious, so another, faster option is to use a cheese press to drain out the extra water.
How to make cauliflower pizza crust recipe
- 4 pounds of riced cauliflower (fresh or frozen works great)
- 2 eggs
- Italian seasoning
- ¼ tsp of salt
- 1 cup raw milk cheddar, shredded
For Pizza Toppings:
- Organic pizza sauce or marinara sauce
- Raw milk cheddar
- Natural, uncured pepperoni
- Preheat oven to 375°
- Place parchment paper on the bottom of the pan and spread out riced cauliflower
- Cook for 15 minutes until completely thawed to steam away and heat up the cauliflower
- Remove the cauliflower and use either a piece of cheesecloth, a linen towel, or a cheese press with cheesecloth to squeeze the water out. This step is essential for crispy pizza crust so don’t skip it! Really try to squeeze until all of the water is out.
- Increase the oven temperature to 450°
- Remove the dry cauliflower from the cheese press and add to a large bowl
- Add in eggs, seasonings, and cheddar and stir until it is well incorporated
- Placing a new piece of parchment paper, add it to the pan and spread it out with your hands so the entire pan is covered
- Place in the oven for 20 minutes then flip. Cook for another 5 minutes
- Remove and add pizza toppings, then bake until cheese has melted (usually between 5-10 minutes)
Is cauliflower crust pizza healthy?

Dr. Natasha says that swapping grains for vegetables is a great thing to do for wellbeing, and when you do, your body will thank you. Making pizza with cauliflower instead of grains like wheat flour is an excellent way to follow her advice.
While some cauliflower crusts are less healthy (like the Boboli cauliflower crust with 330 g of sodium and 28 g of carbohydrates), it is important to keep in mind that the goal of using cauliflower pizza crust is to remove the grain.
This crispy pizza crust is more gentle on your healing gut and provides a way to enjoy pizza while you are on keto or the GAPS diet.
