  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with parchment paper squares.
  2. Grate cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl using a fine grater. Chop up any remaining pieces that are too small to grate but too big for the crust.
  3. Microwave cauliflower until soft and tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour cauliflower into a clean dish towel cool easily handled, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Wrap the towel around the cauliflower and squeeze out as much liquid as possible; the drier the cauliflower is, the better it will hold together as a crust once mixed with the other ingredients.
  5. Combine cauliflower, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a large bowl.
  6. Scoop cauliflower crust mixture into prepared muffin tin, dividing the mixture evenly among the cups. Pat down cauliflower mixture with the back of a spoon, making it compact.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  8. Spoon a small amount of pizza sauce onto each cauliflower crust. Top with remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, dividing evenly among the crusts.
  9. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Let sit in pan for 5 minutes before moving each bite to a cooling rack. Let cool for 10 minutes. Peel parchment paper squares off the crusts and serve on a platter.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you've got a food processor, cut the cauliflower into smaller chunks and toss it in the bowl and process until fine.
  • Add the pizza toppings of your choice, cut into small pieces, in step 8.

Way too many steps and fuss for the finished product. They don't stay warm very long so don't plan to take them to a pot luck dinner.
