Printable Version


1 small to medium sized head of cauliflower - should yield 2 to 3 cups once processed
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
¼ cup mozzarella cheese
1 egg
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon basil or rosemary, minced (or dry)
½ teaspoon oregano, minced (or dry)
1 cup Mom’s Special Marinara Sauce
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
Favorite pizza toppings



Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Remove the stems from the cauliflower and cut into chunks, Place the cauliflower into a food processor (or use cheese grater or chop it very finely) and pulse it until it resembles the texture of rice. Microwave the processed cauliflower uncovered in a microwave safe bowl for approximately 4-5 minutes on high. Remove it from the microwave and allow it to cool for at least 4-5 minutes. After the cauliflower is slightly cooled, place it in a kitchen towel and squeeze all the liquid out of it. Combine the cooked cauliflower, egg, garlic, cheese, and seasonings. Stir until a dough texture forms. Spread the cauliflower mixture out onto lightly greased parchment paper or a pizza pan in the shape of a pizza crust. Bake the crust for approximately 10-15 minutes or until the crust is golden and crispy. After the crust is golden remove it from the oven and add Mom’s Special Marinara Sauce and your toppings. Place the pizza back in the oven and turn on the broiler, bake for about 2-5 minutes until the cheese melts. Watch closely as the broiler can burn the cheese quickly. Slice and serve warm.
