This Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe is so easy to make, delicious, and gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly too. I mean, what else could you want from a 15-minute pizza crust?
I’ve tried several versions of cauliflower pizza crust, and I think this cheese-free version is best. It holds up well and has a light flavor that’s tasty but not overpowering. You can top it with your favorite pizza combination or use caramelized onions, fresh tomatoes and sweet peppers for a fabulous (cheese-free) flatbread. This crust will also work for cheesy breadstick-style applications, so load up on the garlic + mozzarella if you’re into that kind of thing. My favorite dairy-free cheese for pizza is the Miyoko’s Kitchen Vegan Mozzarella (I don’t love it raw, but it’s great baked.)
The toughest part of cauliflower pizza crust is ricing the cauliflower and draining it (neither of which are too tough, by the way) – you can make it event easier by scoring pre-riced cauliflower in the prepared produce section of your grocery store or at Trader Joe’s.
