Homemade Cauliflower Pizza Crust is easy to make and a healthy gluten-free alternative to flour pizza crust.

Eating healthier and eliminating gluten can be a challenge. I know!

Finding alternative recipes and foods for the food items you love isn’t always easy.

When my husband and I were completing our 7-day cleanse, we decided to ease back into “normal” food by having a family pizza night with cauliflower pizza crust, homemade pizza sauce and vegan cheese for the topping {we made regular pizza crust for the kiddos}

While I will never say that cauliflower pizza crust is amazingly delicious {I’m from Chicago – in my mind, pizza should all be deep-dish and eaten with a fork and knife!} it is a good, healthy alternative when you are craving pizza but wanting to be more mindful.

Benefits of Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  • gluten-free
  • low in calories
  • low in carbohydrates
  • high in fiber

Making homemade cauliflower pizza crust is easy and only takes a little bit of prep time. Cauliflower is an extremely healthy alternative to regular flour pizza dough because it is gluten free.

Ingredients

Very little is needed to make homemade pizza crust! I prefer to use riced cauliflower rather than a head of cauliflower that you steam and then cut into really small pieces.

Let’s Make It Together!

Start by defrosting the bags of riced cauliflower. Place in a mesh strainer and drain any water

It may be necessary to hold small amounts of cauliflower in your hand and squeeze tightly to drain any excess water. Use a cheesecloth to be more graceful 🙂

Fig & Arugula Pizza

I had a craving for a sweet and savory pizza – odd, I know. But figs and arugula {usually with goat cheese} is seriously amazing! I had all of the ingredients on hand – but opted to use vegan mozzarella cheese instead of goat cheese.

Next, I topped the pizza with the mozzarella cheese, figs and arugula and baked for 10-12 minutes at 425° F
