This easy Herb Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe is full of flavor and quicker to make than homemade pizza dough. It’s finished in 30 minutes!


  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese (shredded mozzarella or crumbed feta cheese)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dry oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cracked pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut up cauliflower into small florets and place in blender or food processor. Finely blend until cauliflower almost looks like rice.
  3. Place the cauliflower rice into a microwave safe dish, cover and cook on HIGH for 8 minutes.
  4. Remove cauliflower from microwave and place in a cheese cloth or tea towel (I recommend cheese cloth – you can get it at the grocery store) with a large bowl under it. Let the cauliflower sit for a couple of minutes to cool down.
  5. Using the cheesecloth, squeeze all the liquid out of the cauliflower rice. Be sure to get all of the liquid out or you will end up with a soggy dough.
  6. Place cauliflower in a bowl with grated parmesan cheese (or other cheese listed above), dry basil, dry oregano, salt, pepper, and a lightly beaten egg.
  7. Using your hands, knead the cauliflower mixture together until you a ball of dough that forms.
  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and generously brush with olive oil.
  9. Place the cauliflower dough on the baking sheet and spread dough out until it forms a pizza “round/disc”.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
