  • 8 oz chopped cauliflower florets about 1 tightly packed cup of 'riced' cauliflower
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 t. extra virgin olive oil or use grapeseed or avocado oil if concerned about smoke points
  • 1 1/2 t. nutritional yeast, almond meal, ground oats, or grated parmesan (if you're unconcerned about dairy)
  • 1/8 t. sea salt
  • 1/4 t. dried oregano
  • 1/4 t. dried basil
  • pinch garlic powder


  • Make your cauliflower rice by either grating the pieces using a cheese grater or pulsing the florets in a food processor until finely chopped.
  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the cauliflower rice to the pan.
  • Turn the heat off (leave the pan on the burner), and cover the pan.
  • Let the pan sit covered for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove the lid from the 'rice', and dump the contents into a fine-mesh sieve to drain a bit.
  • Transfer the cooked cauliflower from the sieve to a clean dish towel.
  • Wrap the cauliflower in the towel, and squeeze out the excess water (there will be quite a bit!).
  • In a bowl, mix the egg, oil, and remaining ingredients.
  • Add in the squeezed cauliflower.
  • Mix everything until well combined.
  • Pour the contents of the bowl onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • Using a spoon, spread the mixture out into the shape of a small, round pizza (it should be about 1/3 of an inch thick). You can also use your spoon to create a little crust, if you like.
  • Place the pan into the oven, and bake the pizza for 40 minutes.
  • Remove the pizza, and increase your oven temperature to 450 degrees.
  • Top the pizza as you desire.
  • Once the oven has heated up, replace the pizza, and bake for 6-7 more minutes until toppings have cooked through.
  • Remove the pizza, cool, and enjoy!
