Regardless of your background, pizza may be one of the most universal and beloved foods of all time. And by swapping out some of the ingredients and processed items, pizza can actually be pretty nutritious and healthy.

When I found out that cauliflower could be used to make pizza crust, I was pretty skeptical and admittedly, it took me a while before I actually tried it.  But, I’m glad I did! It was not only delicious, but also filling.

Here’s my quick recipe that has worked several times over!

How to Make Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ingredients

Ingredients to make 1 large pizza crust:

  • large head of cauliflower
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour or almond flour
    • Notes:
      • I use coconut flour and almond flour interchangeably. Just know that the macronutrients will change. While almond flour may have less carbs, it is higher in fat (but the “good fat” so don’t stress).
      • If you happen to only have a smaller head of cauliflower, then use 2/3 cup coconut flour.  You can always add more if needed.
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste (optional but recommended)
  • 1.5 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 eggs, 1 egg white (OR 1 egg, 2 egg whites if you’re trying to keep fats as low as possible)
  • sea salt, pepper
Steps

Approximate macros for ENTIRE pizza crust:

683 calories, 41g protein, 77g carbs (~29g from cauliflower), 23g fat (12g from coconut flour), 42g fiber, 17g sugar
