Crust Ingredients:
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cleaned & chopped into florets
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic salt with parsley
  • 2 teaspoon of Zatarain’s Big & Zesty Garlic & Herb seasoning
  • ¾ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
Toppings:

  • Optional pepperoni, sausage, peppers, etc.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process to a “flour-like” texture.
  3. Place in a large microwavable bowl and microwave for on high for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from microwave. Add beaten egg, seasonings, and shredded cheese to cauliflower. Mix well until it resembles a batter like mixture.
  5. This recipe should yield five pizzas. Divide batter into five equal parts.
  6. On parchment lined baking sheet, form mixture into pizza crusts (in this case heart shapes). –at this step, you can continue or freeze formed pizza crusts for later–
  7. Lightly spray each crust with cooking spray and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and top with pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings of choice.
  9. Return to the oven and broil until cheese is melted.

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. My Stepdaughter is a very picky eater who loves Pizza but her Dad and I are on low carb diets. These were so fantastic. My stepdaughter inhaled these!! Little tip to keep the from falling apart, add a little more cheese and let them rest 5 minutes before serving. They firm right up.

      Hi Ramona! Yes! Thank you for mentioning that – I have froze mine before but what I did was bake the crust, as first indicated then topped with cheese, pepperoni, and whatever else you want. Instead of putting back into the oven that’s the point I froze them (after the crusts were cool). Hope that helps!

        Another question – on my first try the pizza fell into pieces so the crust didn’t hold together..what do I need to do to make it not fall apart? I did individual little round pizzas. Thanks!

          Hmm… I’ve not had that happen and we’ve made these countless times.
          Two thoughts:
          1) They need to bake a bit longer than the 15-20 minutes for you
          2) It might be that your ‘crust batter’ was too moist. After you microwave them try patting the cauliflower dry and making sure there’s no additional moisture. You could also try adding a bit more cheese to help hold it together. Just some thoughts!

      I froze these before baking the crust and they turned out fine. Momables, can you add a step in your recipe “–At this point you can freeze or bake–” (i’ve seen this on other recipes of yours and its SOO helpful!) Thx in advance

    Any suggestions on how to do this without a microwave? I’m thinking steaming the cauliflower, cooling it a bit, then running it in the food processor before adding the rest of the ingredients. Does that sound like the right way to go? Thanks!
