What You Need To Make a Cauliflower Crust Pizza:
2 cups of grated CAULIFLOWER
1 cup of freshly grated PARMESAN CHEESE
1 EGG beaten
PARCHMENT PAPER to line your baking sheet
and whatever PIZZA SAUCE and

How to Cook the A Cauliflower Crust Pizza Recipe:
Grate fresh cauliflower florets into granules resembling “poprocks”
Heat the grated cauliflower in a skillet–don’t add oil or water–use medium heat, not too hot. Stir until the cauliflower has dried out somewhat, it won’t dry completely, but the dryer the better. Heat at least 10 minutes, just enough to evaporate the moisture, not enough to color or cook down.
Remove skillet from burner and set aside to allow cauliflower to slightly cool.
In a bowl, beat 1 egg.
Add grated Parmesan cheese to the egg. You can substitute, asiago or romano cheeses, just be sure you use a hard cheese for best results.
Add the cauliflower to the bowl and mix well with the egg and cheese and form into a ball.
Spread parchment paper onto a baking sheet. DEFINITELY USE PARCHMENT PAPER, otherwise your crust may tear when you try to pick it up (and also be sure not to mix up parchment paper with wax paper!)
Place the balled cauliflower and cheese onto the parchment paper and spread out into a pizza shape about ΒΌ inch thick. The crust will be about 10″ across.
Do not make the edges of the crust too thin; keep the size of the crust uniform for even cooking. The cauliflower will darken quite rapidly around the edges if too thin.
Place crust into an oven preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook approx. 15-20 minutes until the crust has colored and firmed up.
Remove cauliflower pizza crust from the oven and top with your favorite pizza sauce. Use a marinara sauce, pesto, white sauce, or whatever. Top with your favorite pizza toppings.
Return pizza to the oven and continue to cook at 400 F for about 10 minutes until the toppings are done, watch the edges of the cauliflower crust; the edges will darken too much if overcooked.
Remove the pizza from the oven and set on a cooling rack –or don’t– this step isn’t make or break.
And that’s it.
eat and enjoy.

A cauliflower pizza crust will not rise since there is no yeast involved, and since the crust is entirely cauliflower, cheese, and egg, it will not achieve the same crispness as a thin dough pizza. But the pizza will stay together just fine, and will taste very much like a pizza.

  1. Im on a new healthy foods journey, and this video has me excited to make the transition! Without feeling as im giving anything up! Yum!!!!! Loved the video Chef B

  2. Chef Buck I'll have you know you publish this on my birthday August 28th the best day in history almost when you made this video and little bitty old me was born anyway at this moment I have my cauliflower pizza crust in the oven I'm trying to get healthier I should have done this 30 years ago actually I did and then I back slid into enjoying food way too much so we shall see how my cauliflower cheese egg pizza crust turns out I did put a little bit of nutritional yeast flakes in to bind it together and give it that fake cheesy taste and some seasonings we'll see how it turns out it smells yummy thank you for this video take care

  3. If you're concerned about the crust tasting too eggy, use an egg + 1 yolk. The "eggy" taste of eggs comes from the white. I use this method when making French Toast, and it keeps them from having an eggy aftertaste as well.

  4. So many cauliflower pizza how-to videos out there but I loved yours the best. Funny, educational and the 'lazy' dry frying is genius. I've just made my first one ever with your instructions and…Amazing! Really delicious. Thank you!

  5. Made this using your recipe and it was Very Good! The first one I used grocery store toppings (of poor or average grade (pre shredded cheese! Just don't ). It was way too salty! Then I made another with quality ingredients and Wow! Great! Also, I used a spring form pan with foil (pam spray) to get it uniform πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I also used a screen pizza pan after the initial slight browning so it would dry out more! Thx for the video!

  6. Tried this recipe tonight. A a low carb skeptic I wasn't a believer of Cauliflower but that parmesan cheese crust makes it all smell PHENOMENAL. Thanks for the video!

  7. This is the BESTEST cauliflower pizza recipe ever!!! I've attempted to make using various methods with no success. I had bariatric surgery 6 yrs ago & this is my new go to food…I use shredded asiago in the crust & it is the Bomb dot com!!! Thank you Chuck😍 Bless
