Low-Carb Crust Ingredients
You only need a few simple ingredients to make this low-carb pizza crust. I keep all of these pantry staples on hand for whenever the craving for pizza strikes.
- Shredded cheese
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic salt
- Olive oil
You can put any sauce, cheese, and toppings on this cauliflower crust! You can keep it low carb or keto with mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, chicken, pepperoni, onions, olives, jalapenos, spinach, ranch dressing, sugar-free tomato sauce, or mushrooms! If you’re on a keto diet, be sure to check all your individual ingredients.
If you want to use frozen cauliflower or cauliflower rice, be sure to thaw it completely and drain any excess water from it before assembling your crust dough. If your cauliflower is too soft to be grated, you can always dice it by hand or use a food processor.
What I used for my Cauliflower Crust Pizza
This post contains affiliate links.
- Pizza pan: I use this round baking sheet for so many things! It’s the perfect size for pizzas and a great non-stick baking sheet.
- Garlic press: Why mince garlic by hand when you can use this ergonomic garlic press? Save your time and your fingertips with this handy kitchen tool.
- Cheese grater: I love that this box cheese grater has different size options on every side. Plus, the rubber base keeps it in place and my countertops unscratched!
How to Make Cauliflower Crust Pizzas
- First, clean your cauliflower and grate it with a cheese grater. Once grated, microwave the cauliflower for about 8 minutes until super soft.
- While it microwaves, preheat your oven and prep your baking sheet.
- Then, mix the grated cauliflower with your egg, cheese, and seasonings. Transfer your “dough” to the baking sheet and press into a 9-inch crust.
- Next, brush olive oil over the raw crust and bake until the egg has set and the crust is solid. You want the crust fully cooked at this point.
- Now, add your favorite sauce, cheese, and toppings, and broil until the cheese is melted.
Since the pizza only cooks for a few minutes with the toppings, make sure they’re all pre-cooked! You can always brown sausage or carmelize onions while the cauliflower crust bakes.
How Many Carbs in Cauliflower Crust?
The carb counts will always vary per recipe and depending what you put in it. This cauliflower crust pizza recipe, when divided into 6 equal slices, is about 6g net carbs without any toppings.
If you’re on a keto diet, be sure to measure your serving sizes and pay attention to the nutritional labels. Most keto diet guidelines recommend staying between 15g and 30g net carbs per day.
How to Freeze Cauliflower Crust
I love to make a bunch of these whenever cauliflower is on sale and freeze them for impromptu pizza nights with minimal work!
When you’re going to eat the pizzas within the week, you can put cooked crusts in the refrigerator. This is great for preparing for a family pizza party without making crust all night.
If you want to store them longer, these cooked cauliflower pizza crusts will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
How to Reheat Frozen Cauliflower Pizzas
Just like a frozen pizza, you can bake it without thawing and just top the frozen crust with your favorite sauce, toppings, and cheeses. When the crust is frozen, I recommend cooking it at 425 degrees F for about 10 minutes or until the crust is completely reheated and the cheese is melted.
