Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 25 minutes
Cost: $6.37 per 12″ crust


  • 6 cups frozen cauliflower rice thawed ($4.84)
  • 3 tablespoons ground flaxseed ($0.15)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt ($0.02)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano ($0.06)
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil ($0.06)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder ($0.06)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast ($0.46)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour ($0.64)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch ($0.06)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder ($0.02)


Let the cauliflower rice thaw at room temperature for a few hours before starting!

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Wrap the thawed cauliflower rice in a clean tea towel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. You should have at least 1/2 cup or so of liquid.
  • Transfer the cauliflower rice into a large mixing bowl along with remaining ingredients. Using clean hands, mix the crust ingredients together until a "dough" forms. If it seems too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of water, but avoid adding too much or the crust will be soggy and won't be able to support the toppings.
  • Form the crust dough into a ball and place it on the parchment lined baking sheet. Lightly press it into a 12" circle that is about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, then carefully flip the crust over and bake for an additional 10 minutes. It is easiest to flip the crust using a spatula or lining a second baking sheet with parchment paper and flipping the crust over onto the second sheet.
  • After 10 minutes, add your sauce and toppings and bake a final 10-15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
