Low-Carb Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust


    For the dough:
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • 60 g mozzarella (grated)
  • 30 g Parmesan (grated)
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)
    For the toppings:
  • 150 g tomato sauce
  • 180 g mozzarella (grated)
  • Fresh basil (to taste)
  • Oregano (to taste)
  • Cherry tomatoes (to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Rinse the cauliflower well and cut into small florets.
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Place the cauliflower florets in a sieve and prop over the steaming water. Cover with a pot lid and steam for 5 minutes.
  4. Then put the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until it has a rice-like consistency. Squeeze the cauliflower in a dish towel to get rid of the excess water.
  5. Now it is time for the dough: mix the cauliflower, eggs, mozzarella, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  6. Transfer the mixture to the baking sheet and shape the dough to form a rectangle (or circle). Bake for 15 minutes (until the crust is golden brown).
  7. Spread the tomato sauce on the crust and top it with cheese and cherry tomatoes.
  8. Then put the cauliflower pizza back in the oven for 5 minutes.
  9. Garnish with fresh basil and oregano.
