The only cauliflower crust recipe you’ll ever need! High protein, gluten-free, grain-free, and only TWO ingredients. This truly is the no-fail pizza crust recipe that anyone can make!
When I first created this recipe back in 2017, cauliflower was JUST starting to gain popularity.
Now, more than 3 years later it’s STILL having a moment. People thought I was crazy for making a “cauliflower crust” pizza back then….especially one this simple! Most people who tried to make complicated cauli-pizzas ended up with a soggy mess that fell apart as soon as you tried to cut it or lift it. That’s why when I figured out this hack after a ton of trial and error I was PUMPED to share it.
Unfortunately, cauliflower just wasn’t the IT food it is now back then…so this recipe faded into the archives. And since, so many companies have now come out with ready-made cauliflower crusts/pizzas you can buy at the grocery store, people lost interest in trying to make them from scratch.
But this recipe is worth trying. A few things that make it different…
- 2 ingredients…3 if you count the water 😉
- SO easy to make (don’t believe me? I just uploaded a step-by-step video of me making it on Instagram and saved to my highlights)
- paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, high protein, super low-cal, virtually no fat….this cleanest cauliflower crust you can make OR buy
- MUCH cheaper than the overpriced store-bought versions
What’s not to love?
I’ve been a huge fan of cauliflower crusts for years, so obviously I love this recipe. But I am also just a huge fan of cauliflower in general because it’s so versatile. I like to call it the ‘tofu of vegetables’ because it has so many uses and has a pretty neutral flavor making a great base for pizza! When you make pizza crust with cauliflower, it becomes the perfect vehicle for all your favorite toppings.
So today, I am REsharing my No-Fail Cauliflower Crust recipe with you. And when I say ‘no-fail’ it really is. Head to my Instagram highlights for video evidence if you don’t believe me!
NO-FAIL Cauliflower Crust Pizza
- Prep Time: 10 mins
- Cook Time: 40 mins
- Total Time: 50 mins
- Yield: 1 crust 1x
- Category: Main Meals
- 300 grams riced cauliflower (about 2 heaping cups)
- ¼ cup (20 grams) unflavored egg white protein
- 3 tbsp water
Place riced cauliflower, egg white protein, and water in a food processor. Blend until it stops mixing. Stop the machine scrape down the sides, and blend again until it’s mostly smooth. cauliflower, egg white protein, and water.
Place mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and spread into a circle. Make sure the circle is not too thin as it will stick to the parchment paper. Bake for 40 minutes at 425 degrees. Remove from oven and flip crust onto a plate to remove the parchment paper. Top with desired toppings. Place back in the oven (on a new sheet of parchment paper) to cook toppings and melt cheese.
Liquid egg whites WILL NOT WORK in this recipe. You need to use egg white protein POWDER. Unflavored. I’ve linked to the kind I personally use.
This crust is gluten-free, grain-free, high protein and low carb as I mentioned above. It’s also A LOT better for you than anything you’ll buy at the store. Granted, cauliflower products have come a long way…but they still take a lot of unnecessary additives and unhealthy ingredients to make them marketable to the masses. So save money and skip the store-bought varieties for this homemade version!
Again, the step-by-step process of how to make this is on my Instagram! So definitely check that out the first time you make this. I am so excited for you to make this and report back with your results. 🙂
