Ingredients required for Keto Cauliflower Crust Pizza
- Total Servings – 8
- Prep Time – 15 minutes
- Cooking Time – 30 minutes
- 680 grams cauliflower (florets)
- 1 1/2 parmesan cheese (grated)
- 1 egg (large)
- [Optional] 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- [Optional] 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
How to Prepare
1 – Set the oven to 400 0 F and place a piece of parchment paper over a pizza peel if you are using a pizza stone or pizza pan.
2 – Make cauliflower rice by processing cauliflower florets in a food processor.
3 – Stir fry the cauliflower rice in a pan at medium-high heat for about 10 minutes or until it softens.
4 – Whisk egg in a large bowl and add parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning to it. Continue whisking until you get a smooth mixture.
5 – Use a kitchen towel to remove water from the stir-fried cauliflower rice.
6 – Mix the cauliflower with the egg mixture and knead thoroughly to get a uniform dough.
7 – Uniformly spread the dough on the parchment paper while keeping thickness to about 0.25-inch.
8 – When using a pizza stone place the same in the oven and use the pizza peel for transferring the parchment paper onto the pizza stone. Alternatively, place the pizza pan in the oven.
9 – Bake the pizza for about 20 minutes or up until the point when the top turns dry and firm, and the edges turn slightly golden.
10 – Take out the pizza from the oven and let it sit at the room temperature for about 5 to 10 minutes. This will make the pizza firmer.
11 – Add toppings of your liking to the pizza and bake it again for about 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts.
12 – Serve it hot.

*Make sure you use blanched almond flour, not “almond meal/flour,” which is a lot less finely ground.
**I love the flavor of nutritional yeast, so I add it for both flavor and also to fortify the dough with vitamins (I buy Bragg’s brand).
***Wax paper does not work as well. The dough will stick. Be sure to use parchment.
