Cauliflower Crust | Recipe


We tried a bunch of methods and landed on this one for delivering a Cauliflower pizza crust that has plenty of flavor (thanks, Parmesan cheese!), browns nicely and even holds together when you pick up a slice. Squeezing the liquid out of raw cauliflower is a key step — don’t skip it. One tip: keep the sauce to a minimum to avoid over-soaking the tender crust.

Cauliflower Crust


  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Trim off and discard any leaves from the cauliflower; cut it into florets. In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower until it resembles couscous. (Alternately, grate it against a large-hole grater.) Lay a clean kitchen towel on the counter and transfer the cauliflower to the center of the towel. Lift the towel by the corners, pull the sides up, and, working over a sink, twist until the cauliflower forms a ball and liquid seeps out of the towel. Keep twisting until liquid stops seeping from the cauliflower. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg. Stir in the Parmesan, garlic, almond flour, salt and pepper. Add the cauliflower and stir to combine.

Line a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper (this keeps the crust from sticking without using a ton of oil). Transfer the cauliflower “dough” to the pan and use your hands to spread and press it into an even 1/4-inch-thick circle. You can use a rolling pin to even it out, if you like.

Bake until set, golden on top and browning on the edges, about 25 minutes.

Serve as a flatbread or add toppings and bake until toppings are as you like them.
