Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Answered on August 19, 2014

Has anyone tried Cauliflower pizza crust ... I have seen many recipes for this on Pintrest and I'm interested to try it. I am looking for first hand experience - for how it tastes.

*I recently tried this Orange Chicken recipe that was simple and delish! Now I'm looking to expand :)

Thanks :)

I also used that recipe and I thought it was pretty good. Top it with enough sausage and you won't care if you can't pick it up ;)

cool thanks. yeah i figure it would have been better with cheese but i used a vegan crust recipe- it was cauliflower, almond flour, and flax eggs.

The link I posted above is a crust that can be picked up.

cauliflower crust does not get crispy like a grain crust would. it stays pretty soft and crumbly. i've only made it twice and tried to get as much water out of the cauliflower as possible. it's just a watery veggie so expect your pizza to be more of a fork and knife pizza instead of one you can easily pick up.

I use this recipe. It contains dairy. I've made it with mozzarella and once with chevre for a friend with a cow's milk allergy. They are a big hit. The texture may take a little getting used to, but I think it tastes great!

I accidentally doubled the cauliflower and not everything else, and it still turned out okay. It was thicker and more "bready," so if you like thick crust pizza normally, you may want to try it.

When I make it I add about 1/4 cup of almond flour to the crust and that seems to help firm it up and make a less flimsy pizza that you can pick up and eat.

If you're interested in another pizza crust recipe, this has been my favorite one. It actually stays together enough to eat with your hands like regular pizza: http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/thinandcrispy_pizza.html

It's just eggs and cheese, spread super thin and baked.

I loved the cauliflower crust pizza I made. It held together quite well. I like deep dish pizza in general so the softer crust was a hit with me. Most GF pizza crusts are glorified rice crackers. I also discovered that I like riced cauliflower fried up like hash browns.

Interesting one. The thing that I love most about the diet is that you don't have to give up eating AT ALL. You can stay healthy without too much effort. Everything I eat is from this cookbook that I bought.

I have made cauliflower pizza on 2 different occasions and both were pretty good. Adding cheese into the crust helps to hold it together a little. I think that the next time I make it I will try to make the crust thinner, to allow it to crisp up a little bit more. Just don't expect it to taste exactly like regular pizza and you are good to go. It is a great alternative and I would highly recommend it!

I tried it over the weekend. It was delicious! Mine did not hold together as well as I would have wanted. I think the trick is to use cheese cloth to squeeze out all of the water so it is very dry before you mix the other ingrediants. Althought it did not hold up as well as I would have wanted it was delicious!
