Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Low carb | Paleo | Low Calorie

Happy WIAW! (Thanks, Jenn. Also hooking up with Amanda) Instead of showing a lot of this week’s past eats, I’ll be showing one thing in particular that Tiffany and I made–a flourless, low calorie, guilt-free glorious deep dish pizza! I love foods that I can eat abundantly and still not break the calorie budget. I’ve done a lot of research and experimented in my own kitchen–this is the lowest of the lowest calorie pizza crustΒ you can possibly make. Not to mention it’s also paleo and low carb! The secret to our pizza crust is that we don’t use wheat flour–we use cauliflower! You won’t believe how much calories and carbs we slashed–it’s astounding.


So we hung out at Tiff’s house



We’re both tea drinkers. What better combo than tea and browsing an iPhone?

After delivering newspapers, I headed over to her place to chill out and watch a movie. Right away, Tiffany and started making the pizza. The chicken breast was defrosted and so was the beef. Manually, I grounded the white meat and sliced the beef to saute and layer on as topping. After cooking, we watched the first Pirates of the Carribbean movie. Something about the Black pearl, which is a famous pirate ship. A third of the way into the movie, I felt like snoring. Sorry, but I didn’t like it! I had such high expectations of it but it turned out boring. The reason why I wanted to give the series a try in the first place was because I saw a short mermaid clip of Syrena and Phillip from a later sequel movie that was so romantic and touched my heart! Another friend said, unfortunately, to understand what was happening at that point, I had to watch them in chronological order. Wow, that was a bummer and a mistake on my part–I’m just going to skip to the goods next time!


Lunch in bed.

At least it was nice to curl up on the bed for 30 minutes.

Back to the pizza. Now, we didn’t use cheese or tomato sauce, but that’s no reason why you can’t. If you’re paleo, just omit the the cheese and if you’re not, knock yourself out. Tiffany and I attempted to make the pizza deep dish by using a square cake pan to add depth. It turned out good, despite us winging the recipe from scratch and NOT using traditional pizza ingredients, but boy, I gotta try traditional deep dish pizza some day. I’m drooling just thinking about how deep the cheese can go in that deep dish. All that ooey, gooey goodness I can twirl around my fork and chew on…


Didn’t get to take a picture of the ingredients…but here’s the crust!


Half with tomatoes, onions and mushrooms, and the other half with a (hidden) egg, Italian sausages and sauteed beef.


We split the pizza in two: half was hers and half was mine. Can you guess which half was mine?


It finally turned out!


Slightly softer were the pieces than we would’ve liked…(don’t worry, the recipe is modified so that yours fare slightly better)

Cauliflower Crust Pizza


  • 3/4 large cauliflower head
  • 2 Eggs
  • Salt and spices to taste(dried herbs, seasoning, etc)
  • 5oz. Ground chicken(optional)
  • Any toppings your heart desires!


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a food processor, grind up the cauliflower florets until they are in tiny little specks.
  3. Pour it into a bowl and add your eggs and spices. Mix together thoroughly. Add in your ground chicken, if using.
  4. In a pan, grease the surface and add the mixture in. It should be in the consistency of cookie batter.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
  6. Take out of the oven, add your toppings then place back in the oven for another 15 minutes or so.


If you guess the right side, youΒ are right!


Oh it’s pretty deep dish all right.


Tiffany’s slice smelled so good!

wpid-dsc01222.jpg Tiffany and I actually used 3 eggs and it turned out to be a little more “quiche styled” than what we intended, so I modified the recipe accordingly so ypu don’t make the same mistake! She added tomatoes, onions, and mushrooms on her side and I added 1 whole egg, Italian sausage, and sauteed beef on mine. She says there’s something refreshing about a vegetarian pizza and I agree. It looks, tastes, and smells different than any other pizza. When we took our first bite we both agreed it was yum, yum, yummy. All too soon the taste became too repetitive for me–but hey, that’s what happens when you eat HALF THE ENTIRE PIZZA! Did I mention it was deep dish? Man, I was so full I didn’t feel the need to eat breakfast the next day. Oh who am I kidding, skipping breakfast is part of the usual.

Do you like deep dish pizza? Are you more of a pizza, or hamburger girl?

  • YES x 10000000!!!!!!!! I love the chicken ADDITION! I AM ALL OVER THIS… Might just have to risk my egg intolerance for this πŸ˜‰

  • I am loving the autumn leaf mug! I’m kiiiind of a mug fanatic.
    I don’t think I’ve ever had a deep dish pizza. This one looks so good! I’ve been wanting to try cauliflower crust; I just need the cauliflower.

  • This is the simplest version of the cauliflower crust I have seen – need to try this!!

    • What can I say? I am all about simplicity in my work. πŸ™‚ I’m so glad you like it! All my recipes are simple to make.

  • Definitely a Pizza Girl. I am unfortunately, allergic to egg whites. Do you have a reco for replacing the eggs in this recipe? Looks so good!

  • I love deep dish pizza! Looks great! I have yet to try making a cauliflower crust… one of these days! πŸ™‚

  • Pizza girl over here! I love a Cauliflower crust and yours looks especially delish πŸ™‚

  • Miss Polkadot

    Deep dish pizza – one of those dishes I’ve never had before because we only do regular pizza over here. But I agree with you I’ll need to try it one day.
    I’ve made cauliflower crust pizza before using chickpea flour and flaxseed as I don’t eat eggs.

  • Sam @

    I love recipes using cauliflower to replace heavy foods. Might have to try this out!!

  • Amanda H

    Mmm this looks amazing!. I love cauliflower crust pizza but I don’t have a food processor right now so it’s a huge pain to make πŸ™ Maybe someday when I have more counter space. #wowlinkup

    • I feel you, Amanda. Every time a recipe called for a blending machine I would get frustrated because I didn’t have one. So now I have the vitamix πŸ™‚

  • Oh let me tell you I love cauliflower pizza. It is sooo the bomb. I can eat it all all day every day. LOL #wowlinkup

  • Love cauliflower crust pizza! I used to make it more often but now tend to make mine with almond flour and fax seed meal. It’s so good!

  • Libby

    Yum! I want this! I think I’ll make it next week πŸ™‚

  • Sprint2theTable

    Cool idea! I make my cauliflower crust at least once a week. you’re looks like a deep dish version. I’ll have to check it out!

  • Yahaaay!!! I was planning on doing this soon! You read my mind, THANKS! This will be a great ref!

  • You know, I’ve never actually tried making a cauliflower pizza crust, and I really should get on it because I hear so many good things. This looks fantastic, girl! Aaaaand now I’m seriously craving some pizza…

    • They are a fantastic way to get in your veggies and feel free to splurge on larger pizza portions because they’re low calorie!

  • Wow I’m making this – most cauliflower crusts involve too much work for me (squeezing liquid? No thanks!) but this looks right up my street. And I know which side mine will look like!


    • All my recipes are super simple because I’m a person who hates massive cleanup in the kitchen! I love your blog and I hope you can join the #LIPlinkup soon πŸ™‚

  • I discovered the joys of cauliflower crust pizza and loved it! Need to make again soon!

  • Kierston

    I’ll have to try this! Thanks for linking up to #RECIPEFRIDAY πŸ™‚

    What an interesting idea using cauliflower as the crust. I am not usually a big cauliflower fan but I will have to try this recipe out #wowlinkup

  • Catherine Basu

    I’m more of a thin and crispy crust girl, but the way you talk about the deep dish, I’m intrigued! I made a cauliflower pizza once. Came out great, but I learned after that pressing the cauliflower with paper towels can help make it drier. I will definitely try that the next time to get my crispiness on πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing the recipe! #wowlinkup

  • I’ve never tried making a cauliflower crust before, but I’m intrigued by it. My kids love cauliflower! Thanks for linking it up with us at Foodie Fridays!

  • Mallory

    Do you need to cook the chicken first? Thanks!
