  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor; pulse until chopped into grains the size of rice.
  3. Fill a large pot with about 1 inch of water; bring to a boil. Add cauliflower "rice"; cook until softened, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain in a fine sieve and cool until running water.
  4. Pour cauliflower onto a clean dish towel; roll up and twist edges. Wring out as much water as possible.
  5. Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Add egg, mozzarella cheese, oregano, and salt; mix well. Spread on the lined baking sheet to about 1/2-inch thickness.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until firm to the touch and light golden brown in color, about 35 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Wringing out the water is the secret to this crust! It is surprisingly bendable for a veggie crust - you can pick it up just like any other pizza crust. This could be adapted to calzone, breadsticks, etc.
  • I think fresh basil or even minced spinach would be excellent in this crust.

Ive made the cauliflower crust a few times. I added a little paremesean cheese to it ( like1 to 2 Tb) when I mix it and usually just use the egg white. One of the keys I found to making a pizza ...

Didn't work. It tastes like egg which isn't that bad with the cheese and oregano. It has been cooking for 90 minutes now and is still way too soft for my liking. That is after using an entire r...

I bought a bag of cauliflower rice in the frozen vegetable aisle and it worked, I just microwaved it, mixed the ingredients together and spread it on the pan and cooked it.

Great alternative to regular pizza crust. I did not cook my cauliflower, I 'riced' it and then added the rest of the ingredients. I used fresh basil, 1/2 mozzarella and 1/2 parmesan, added fres...

Oh my goodness! This is delicious and filling! I have a tofu press so I wrapped the cauliflower rice in cheesecloth and pressed it for 15 minutes. Came out nice and dry. Whipped it up and put in...

This was a very delicious recipe. Couldn't tell it was cauliflower at all. My daughter devoured it before asking what it was. Even after finding out it was cauliflower, she asked for me to mak...

Grated cauliflower to "rice" size, worked great, worked really hard to get the liquid out. Since I don't have a food processor was very time consuming / will try steaming and passing through my ...

But I did not boil cauliflower, I did it in a skillet on low not browning it. No oil or water need. Much easier to dry it out.

I loved it, I didn't use a processor. I just chopped up the tops, boiled, and squeezed extra hard with a cheesecloth into a mush.

Sauté the cauliflower! This is an excellent tasting recipe, but you don’t know have to wring out the cauliflower. I used a bag of “riced” cauliflower, sprayed a skillet with pam, added some o...
