A repost of the Original Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe by request – originally published August 9, 2008.
Cauliflower Pizza Crust? Says who?
Yes, it’s delicious. And yes, it’s really Cauliflower – no bread.
And what is even crazier is that you can’t even tell it’s Cauliflower.
I tried and tried to find a recipe for this online when I first made it. Nobody had one, so I asked the person I had tell me about it how they made it.
We followed his instructions as best as we could, but we did make a few very minor changes.
Now in 2022, there are recipes all over the Internet for this, but I promise when we first tried it, we couldn’t find one.
Other than riced cauliflower, making a pizza crust out of cauliflower was not a thing.
When we first made this pizza crust, I had to get it together before the 5 kids got home from school.
I was on a diet and was trying to lower my carb intake, and knew I had to cut out pizza crust.
I had been talking to a friend on my diet message board about healthy snacks and substitutions for unhealthy things like carbs.
He suggested I try a Cauliflower Pizza Crust. I thought he was crazy. But I was open to trying.
I also knew that at least one of my kids (maybe two) would be totally fine with the idea of Cauliflower in her pizza crust, but I wasn’t convinced about the other four.
And I’m 100% positive that my oldest daughter wouldn’t have touched it. Neither would by son.
But they both love pizza and I was focused on making sure they had no idea what I had made it with until AFTER they at least tried it.
And so I made this Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe.
I suck because I did not take a photo of the finished pizza with the Cauliflower Pizza Crust when we made this because I was trying to keep it a secret from the kids, especially Miss Picky and my youngest, the nine year old.
They’d have thought I was nuts photographing a pizza, and I wasn’t wanting them to know it was Cauliflower just yet.
Anyway, it looks amazing, it tastes amazing and guess what – my pickiest eater who in a million years would not pop a piece of cauliflower into her mouth – Ever, I swear she wouldn’t.
AND she LOVES it. Yes.
My kids now request this all the time. All 5 of them.
That’s how good it is.
If I can convince at least 3 super picky eaters to eat this, and now they know what it is, you’ll be very happy you made the switch.
It’s a little extra work, but it’s SO good you won’t care. And it cuts out some major carbs. Also good.
Update: I now have 5 teenagers.
They still request this more often than most other recipes on my blog.
It’s just that good!
Let me know if you’ve tried the Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe and what you thought of it.
