Veggie Crust Pizza

8 comments

Here is a unique alternative to a bread-style pizza crust. Our Veggie Crust Pizza uses finely minced cauliflower, eggs and cheese to create this crust that can also be used for appy’s in place of sliced baguettes.

Use a food processor and chop the raw cauliflower until its finely chopped (rice-sized).

In a bowl combine cauliflower, eggs, garlic, herbs and cheese, mix well. Divide mixture into half.VeggieCrustPizza3

Form 2 – 1/3” thick, 9” wide pizza crusts (mixture won’t hold together, but that’s ok) onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes, or until golden.

Once cooked and golden brown, use as desired (ie. for pizza, for appy’s, or freeze to use for later).VeggieCrustPizza6

For pizza, add desired toppings and continue baking (or broil) until toppings are heated throughout.VeggieCrustPizza7

Use this for pizza, as well in place for sliced baguettes for appy's like brushcetta or tempanade.

  1. I just love this idea will try this week thanks a lot…

  2. In order to make this less acid, do you think chia eggs would work? I see no way to change cheese because it is probably what holds it together.

  3. Any ideas of what you could use besides cheese? I’m allergic to all dairy products as well as gluten.

  4. Definitely the eggs and cheese are holding this ‘crust’ together. I have never tried using chia seeds as an egg replacement in this recipe, so please let me know how it turns out!

  5. The cheese and eggs are what are holding this crust together. Instead you could try our Paleo Pizza Crust – its both egg and dairy free.

  6. Do you cook the cauliflower first

  7. Nope, you use raw cauliflower to form the crust.

  8. I’ve seen – and tried – other pizza crust recipes using only cauliflower and egg. Held together just fine.
