Servings 2


  • 1 large cauliflower head
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • pizza toppings


  1. Rinse off a cauliflower head and break it into tiny sections. Then, in batches, pulse it in the food processor until all of the big chunks are gone. This will make a mess no matter how careful you are. Just be prepared for little cauliflower flakes everywhere.

  2. Now, cook the cauliflower. Boil a few inches of water. Then, add the cauliflower and cook for 4 - 5 minutes.
  3. After that, strain all of the liquid. Then, let it sit and cool down for a few minutes.
  4. This step is very important! Be sure to get out as much liquid as you can from the cauliflower. Dump the cauliflower on a clean, dry towel. Pull up the edges, and wring out all of the excess water. This will take several times of wringing out. Caution - the water may still be pretty hot.
  5. Place the cauliflower in a bowl and mix in 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and (optional) 1/4 cup cheese or fake cheese. Or, add whatever spices you normally like in your pizza dough.
  6. Mix the ingredients. The fastest, easiest way is to just use your hands.
  7. Form the dough into a ball.
  8. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  9. Form the dough into a round or rectangular crust about 1/4 inch thick. This will make one medium sized crust or 2 smaller crust. I made 2 small crusts.
  10. Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.
