Eating healthier and eliminating gluten can be a challenge. I know!

Finding alternative recipes and foods for the food items you love isn’t always easy.

When my husband and I were completing our 7-day cleanse, we decided to ease back into “normal” food by having a family pizza night with cauliflower pizza crust, homemade pizza sauce and vegan cheese for the topping {we made regular pizza crust for the kiddos}

While I will never say that cauliflower pizza crust is amazingly delicious {I’m from Chicago – in my mind, pizza should all be deep-dish and eaten with a fork and knife!} it is a good, healthy alternative when you are craving pizza but wanting to be more mindful.

Benefits of Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  • gluten-free
  • low in calories
  • low in carbohydrates
  • high in fiber

Making homemade cauliflower pizza crust is easy and only takes a little bit of prep time. Cauliflower is an extremely healthy alternative to regular flour pizza dough because it is gluten free.


Very little is needed to make homemade pizza crust! I prefer to use riced cauliflower rather than a head of cauliflower that you steam and then cut into really small pieces.

Let’s Make It Together!

Start by defrosting the bags of riced cauliflower. Place in a mesh strainer and drain any water

It may be necessary to hold small amounts of cauliflower in your hand and squeeze tightly to drain any excess water. Use a cheesecloth to be more graceful 🙂

In a large bowl add egg and spices


Add Parmesan cheese and drained cauliflower

Stir with fork to combine

Press cauliflower mixture into a round pizza pan

Bake in 425°F oven for 12-15 minutes

Fig & Arugula Pizza

I had a craving for a sweet and savory pizza – odd, I know. But figs and arugula {usually with goat cheese} is seriously amazing! I had all of the ingredients on hand – but opted to use vegan mozzarella cheese instead of goat cheese.

I sliced the figs lengthwise

Next, I topped the pizza with the mozzarella cheese, figs and arugula and baked for 10-12 minutes at 425° F

Happy pizza baking, friends!
