You guys remember the cauliflower pizza crust recipe that was all the rage, right? Well, I tried it back in the day and mostly enjoyed it, but it was kind of a lot of work, really messy to make, and I ended up eating it with a fork and knife because the crust was so darn flimsy, which, ok, was likely my own fault because I didn’t squeeze all of the moisture from the cauliflower, but still… all of that work for a so-so pizza? Meh. Long story short, it wasn’t a recipe that I was super psyched to make again anytime soon.

Fast-forward to the present day: You can buy cauliflower already riced, which solves a number of my pizza problems and inspired me to create a crust that wouldn’t fall apart when I pick it up. That said, here’s a quick and easy (!!) recipe for cauliflower pizza crust. Enjoy!


Bonus: It doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and you don’t need to squeeze all of the extra moisture out of the cauliflower!

  • 12 ounces riced cauliflower, defrosted
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup liquid egg whites (or 2-3 egg whites)
  • 2 tbsp Herbal Pizza & Pasta Magic (or similar pizza seasoning)
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Toppings of choice


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine above ingredients (minus your toppings) in a food processor. FYI: If you don’t have a food processor or you don’t feel like lugging yours out, you can totally stir the ingredients by hand. The batter still makes a nice crust; it’s just not as “smooth” to the eye. Both ways work!

Blend until a smooth batter forms.


Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and then use a spatula to spread batter into a 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick circle.

Bake for 15-18 minutes until edges start to brown and center is firm to the touch.


Remove from the oven and top with your favorite ingredients (marinara sauce, cheese, veggies, etc.) and then pop it back into the oven for another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!

  1. That’s awesome, thanks for sharing! I have attempted 2 different times to make cauliflower crust and have failed. Excited to try this out.

  2. Looks awesome! Do you think this recipe would work with the regular riced cauliflower from TJ’s? My store only had the fresh, not frozen kind.

  3. Pinning! I’ve been wanting to try cauliflower crust for a while and this recipe seems so simple. I haven’t gotten over to TJ’s to get their cauliflower rice yet but when I do I’m going to buy ALL of it. You can’t stop me!

  4. My local TJs hasn’t had the riced cauliflower in foreverrrr! I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for it so I can try this.. looks delish!

  5. Holy cannoli!!! I just made this and it was awesome!! I loved how quick it was! I’ll definitely be making it again!

  6. Why oh why is there not a Trader Joe’s near me!! They always have the best ingredients/prepared foods. I would love to try cauliflower pizza, but have no desire to make the riced cauliflower myself haha. I’ll definitely be trying this recipe next time I can find a TJs!

  7. Looks tasty! Do you have a recommendation for a good food processor? I have been wanting to get one but have read mix reviews about durability and thought you may have some insight

  8. Definitely going to try this. I hate that the other cauliflower pizza crust recipes call for so much cheese–I like that on TOP of my pizza.

  9. Love that CF rice was so popular they now have it in the frozen AND fresh section! This looks great, I love that it’s dairy free and I’ve been all about oat flour lately so I’ll give this a try!

  10. I love the riced cauliflower from TJ’s – but it’s so hard to get your hands on! My local TJ told me that they get 2 cases a couple times a week and it’s gone by noon on the day they put it out.

  11. Hi!
    I have three bags in my freezer and can’t wait to make this!!!
    Question – when you defrost it, do you leave it out to thaw?

  12. I was so excited to try this recipe but am so bummed that it’s dependent upon the TJ’s “rice”- every single time I’ve tried to get the cauliflower rice it’s been out of stock 🙁

    1. @Lacey: FYI… my walmart carries Green Giant Cauliflower Crumbles (I.E. cauliflower rice…you might try to use this if you can find it! 🙂 )

  14. TJ sells riced cauli? Game changer. AS much as we like to use cauli, the process is always a mess. I’m generally not one to buy pre done stuff, but that one seems worth it.

  15. I can’t do gluten, egg whites, nuts,soy,bananas, -and have many others sensitivities. I would love a pizza dough to fit my needs. Can you help?
