How to Make Low-Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust
Regardless of our background, who isn’t familiar with one of the most universal and beloved foods of all time? Pizza! Who says it can’t be tasty and healthy at the same time?
Good news! Here’s my take on a quick low-carb cauliflower pizza crust that will meet your cravings without ruining your special diets! Cauliflower pizza crust recipes are made of grated low-carb cauliflower.
It’s also called cauliflower rice due to its rice-like texture and appearance. In this recipe, I used coconut flour and almond flour interchangeably for added nutrients. However, almond has lower carb content yet is high in healthy fats and fibers.
For extra flavor, mozzarella or goat’s cheese can be added. The same is true for fresh spices and herbs. You also have the freedom to choose your pizza toppings, such as sauce, meats, or even vegetables for a heartier keto meal plan.
These keto-friendly pizza crusts offer a lot of nutritional value compared to regular pizza crust recipes used on your usual pizza. Its high fiber content is essential for a healthy and balanced diet.
All of these nutrients — including protein, vitamin C, and calcium — have a lot of health benefits. They help maintain weight, lowering your risk of diabetes, heart problems, and some types of cancer.

Ingredients to make 1 large pizza crust:
- large head of cauliflower
- 3/4 cup coconut flour or almond flour
- 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
