Tips for getting the most out of your pizza
- Use a pizza screen when cooking the pizza so it will bake more evenly! Just make sure you don’t cut your pizza on the screen.
- Make mini pizza crusts. This way, everyone can get the toppings they want without the fighting!
- Lastly, bake multiple crusts and freeze them for dinner another day. Just bake like normal, cool, then wrap in a freezer Ziploc bag and freeze. Make sure you thaw the frozen Cauliflower Crust before baking with toppings.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust
- 2 cups grated cauliflower florets (#6383)
- 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan Cheese (hard cheese)
- 1 egg beaten
- Parchment paper to line your pizza pan (#1153)
- Grate fresh cauliflower florets into granules resembling “poprocks”
- Heat the grated cauliflower in a skillet–don’t add oil or water–use medium heat, not too hot. Stir until the cauliflower has dried out somewhat, it won’t dry completely, but the dryer the better. Heat at least 10 minutes, just enough to evaporate the moisture, not enough to color or cook down.
- Remove skillet from burner and set aside to allow cauliflower to slightly cool.
- In a bowl, beat 1 egg. Add grated Parmesan cheese to the egg. You can substitute, asiago or romano cheeses, just be sure you use a hard cheese for best results. Add the cauliflower to the bowl and mix well with the egg and cheese and form into a ball.
- Spread parchment paper onto a baking sheet. DEFINITELY USE PARCHMENT PAPER, otherwise, your crust may tear when you try to pick it up.
- Place the balled cauliflower and cheese onto the parchment paper and spread out into a pizza shape about a ¼ inch thick. The crust will be about 10″ across. Do not make the edges of the crust too thin; keep the size of the crust uniform for even cooking. The cauliflower will darken quite rapidly around the edges if too thin.
- Place crust into an oven preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook approx. 15-20 minutes until the crust has colored and firmed up.
- Remove cauliflower pizza crust from the oven and top with your favorite pizza sauce. Use a marinara sauce, pesto, white sauce, or whatever. Top with your favorite pizza toppings.
- Return pizza to the oven and continue to cook at 400 F for about 10 minutes until the toppings are done, watch the edges of the cauliflower crust; the edges will darken too much if overcooked.
- Remove the pizza from the oven and set on a cooling rack –or don’t– this step doesn’t make or break. And that’s it. Eat and enjoy!
