Cauliflower Crust Pizza


cauliflower pizza


I remember when I was young and my parents would go out on a Friday night and leave us kids to eat delivery pizza.  Me + my siblings would have a contest to see who could eat the most pieces…I am pretty sure I ALWAYS won!  I LOVE pizza, I mean does anyone not?  That said, at age 30, I can no longer stuff my face with pizza without any consequences…. so sad.  BUT, here is the solution… Cauliflower Pizza!  It is pretty much a carb free pizza made with goat cheese + your favorite toppings.

I have been making cauliflower rice for a while, but I was a little hesitant to try cauliflower pizza (just not sure how the flavors would meld together).  The end product proved DELICIOUS though; this is definitely my new pizza alternative.



For the Crust

  • 4 cups cauliflower rice (see here for directions)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup goat cheese
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper


  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella goat cheese
  • Any additional toppings of your choice


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Make 4 cups of cauliflower rice  (about 1 head of cauliflower)
  • Heat cauliflower rice in the microwave for 8 minutes
  • Mix eggs and ½ cup goat cheese into cauliflower rice to make “dough”
  • Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano
  • Spread “dough” onto a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper).  You can shape the dough into any shape you like; spread dough evenly to 3/4 inch thick
  • Bake dough for 25 minutes
  • Add toppings
  • Return to oven for 5 – 10 minutes (until cheese melts)

Makes 6 servings
