  • 2 lbs fresh cauliflower
  • 1.5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheese (I like to use gouda or goat)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.

  2. Cut the cauliflower into large florets, add to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the pieces are very small (see picture in my post). You may need to do this in a few batches depending on how large your food processor is.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium.  Add the garlic and stir for one minute.  Add the cauliflower, stir, and cook (covered) for 5-8 minutes until soft.

  4. Allow the cauliflower to cool, either in the skillet or another bowl (important so you don't burn your hands!).  Then pour it into a clean dishtowel, wrap up, and squeeze hard several times to remove all the liquid.  You'll be left with a ball resembling pizza dough.

  5. Mix in the egg, cheese, salt, and onion powder.  Spread the "dough" onto a baking pan covered with parchment paper (I also spray the parchment paper with cooking spray for extra stick protection.)

  6. Bake the crust for 30 -35 minutes, or until the top is browned and firm to the touch.  Add your toppings, and if the toppings need warming/melting, pop it back into the oven for 5-7 minutes.  You're done!
