I love eating mine with a crispy crust. There are 2 secrets to achieving this with a Cauliflower Crust:
- Spread your cauliflower mixture on the sheet pan or pizza stone thinly
- Prebake the crust BEFORE adding the tomato sauce and the cheese
And it doesn’t taste like cauliflower at all! So if you’re skeptical, give it a try and tell me what you think.
For me, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil, and red pepper flakes make the perfect pizza. You can certainly add whatever topping you may like.
Here are some ideas to start, mushrooms, onions, peppers, arugula, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, etc. You can also omit the sauce and just use a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
I like to spread my dough thinly onto parchment paper:
You can do it with your hands or by placing another parchment paper on top and spreading with a rolling pin.
Next, you bake it 8-10 minutes, or until your crust starts to become golden.
See how pretty?
Now we add the tomato sauce, cheese, and your favorite toppings.
We bake again until the cheese is completely melted.
Doesn’t that look gorgeous? All that cheese and sauce….

Line a cookie sheet or a pizza stone with parchment paper sprayed with cooking oil
Cut cauliflower into florets, and pulse in food processor until it resembles rice
Place cauliflower rice in a bowl and microwave on high for about 3 minutes. Allow to cool and pour onto a thin dish towel
Wrap the cauliflower in the towel, twist and wring it hard enough to extract all the liquid. This process is important as the more liquid you are able to remove the better the crust will come together
Next, pour the cauliflower into a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients above and mix with hands. Form into a ball and plan on top of the prepared parchment paper
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until it starts to turn golden. Remove from oven and add any topping you wish
