1 medium-sized head of cauliflower (makes about 2-3 cups once processed OR buy a bag of already riced refrigerated or riced cauliflower
¼ t. sea salt
½ t. dried basil
¼ t. dried oregano
1 t. garlic salt OR 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
1/4 c. shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 c. mozzarella cheese
1 egg
** pizza sauce & toppings of your choice


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray it with olive spritzer or coconut oil non-stick spray (or use a silicon baking mat)
  3. Cut off the florets of the cauliflower-cutting off as much of the stem as possible. Place the florets in a food processor and “rice it” by pulsing the food processor *Be very careful not to over process or it will turn to a puree! (Skip this step if using pre-riced cauliflower)
  4. The cauliflower should come out looking almost grain like.
  5. Place the cauliflower in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 4 minutes
  6. Pour it out on a kitchen towel or paper towels and wring the water out of it
  7. Place in a bowl and mix in all the other ingredients, except sauce & toppings
  8. Using your hands, take the mixture and make it into 2 balls
  9. Place each ball on the parchment paper and flatten each out to a pizza shape – not too thick or thin!
  10. Slide parchment onto cookie sheet or pizza stone, place in oven and bake until the edges start to get golden brown and the middle sets – about 8-12 minutes. Flip over and bake another few 5-7 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  12. Put your favorite no-sugar pizza sauce and toppings on and cook on 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melting and starting to brown.

* Suggested toppings: tomatoes, olives, chicken sausage, turkey pepperoni, artichoke hearts, spinach, arugula, diced chicken, mushrooms, eggplant, peppers, garlic, smoked salmon
