  • 1 big head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 eggs


  • Start by making cauliflower rice. Cut or break out all the florets from the head. Put these in a food processor and whiz till you have fine grains. This is cauliflower rice. You should get about 4 cups of rice. Put the cauliflower rice in a bowl and microwave for 4 minutes. 
  • Now take out all the moisture from the rice. To do this, put the cooked rice in the middle of a kitchen towel. Bring the ends together and start twisting the ends of the kitchen towel, automatically squeezing the rice. Keep squeezing till you have taken out all the moisture.
  • Before you start with the dough, preheat the oven to 450F. In a wide bowl put together the cauliflower rice, the two kinds of cheese, and the eggs. Bring them together and start kneading. It is important that you knead the dough properly. 
    Preparing cauliflower pizza crust
  • Wrap up the kneaded dough in a cling film and chill it for 20 minutes. This will help you roll it. You can also store it like this for up to 4 days. 
  • Place the dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper and start flattening it with a rolling pin. The parchment paper allows you to roll the dough without adding any additional flour. 
  • When you have the desired thickness, remove the upper parchment paper and transfer the rolled out dough to a pizza pan. Prick the dough with a toothpick or fork. 
  • Bake the crust till it browns. Alternatively, you can spread the toppings and bake till the edges are browned. 
  • Enjoy your pizza!
