Vegan Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Dairy Free Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Ever since I stopped eating gluten, the food I miss the most is pizza. In my opinion, pizza is the best food ever invented. I am a huge fan of sauce and cheese, but I was always  a crust kinda girl. Weird? Yea probably, but I always loved eating pizza with people who would leave the crust. I would steal every bit, every time, without fail.

The challenge today, is creating a dairy free pizza crust that is satisfying. I wasn’t born yesterday… I know that no “healthy” pizza crust will ever be the same as the one from my favorite neighborhood pizza joint. That doesn’t mean that I can’t find some sort of acceptable substitution!

Cauliflower pizza crust is blowing up the internet. There are millions of recipes boasting the best cauliflower pizza crust. Most of these recipes have cheese… LOTS of cheese. My challenge was to create a cheese-less pizza crust, that still had great texture, flavor, and taste! I did it….


*no your eyes are not deceiving you, there are two different pizzas photographed. I initially made one yesterday, but lost the light while I was photographing… (blogger problems). I was FORCED to make it again today, and decided to use different toppings!

This Cauliflower Crust Pizza is crunchy and delicious! It's Fat free, sugar free, gluten free, and vegan. The best part is that you can eat the ENTIRE thing by yourself.. guilt free!
Recipe type: Vegan
Cuisine: Pizza
Serves: 1 or 2 servings
  • 2 cups riced cauliflower (about ½ head cauliflower)
  • 1 TBS chia + 2 chia eggs (see Note)*
  • ¼ cup quinoa flour (or flour of choice)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp fennel
  • ½ tsp basil
  • ½ tsp parsley
  • 1 TBS nutritional yeast
  1. Pre-head oven to 450 degrees
  2. Create 2 chia eggs and allow to form in the fridge
  3. Break cauliflower into florets
  4. Lightly blend until you get a “rice like” consistency- (makes about 2 cups)
  5. Using a cheese cloth or a dish towel, squeeze excess water from cauliflower
  6. Transfer to a bowl and combine remaining ingredients
  7. Once your chia eggs are done, add and mix completely
  8. On a sprayed baking sheet, spread out "dough" and form your desired pizza shape
  9. Bake for about 20-25 minutes (the edges will have turned brown)
  10. Remove from oven and add your favorite sauce and toppings
  11. Put back in the oven for about 8-10 minutes.
  12. ENJOY!
To clarify: 2 chia eggs (2 TBS chia mixed with 6 TBS water put in the fridge to set)
PLUS an additional TBS chia seeds simply added to the dough

If you follow weight watchers, an entire pizza is 6 points

This is definitely a large pizza, but if you want to eat the whole thing by yourself, go for it! If you want to share (I don’t) that’s really nice of you.

      I’m so sorry! It’s two chia “eggs”- 2 TBS chia seeds mixed with 6 TBS water and put in the fridge to set. PLUS one additional TBS chia seeds simply added to the dough. Does that make sense? Thanks for bringing this to my attention.. I’ll fix it on the recipe :)

    Thankyou !!!! just consumed whole thing (well, we both did!) and DELICIOUS!!! So we have our own chickens so that we can eat ‘happy’ eggs so I exchanged the chia seeds for 4 eggs. Exchanged soy sauce for the nutritional yeast since I didn’t have any of that and YUM!!! so that’s our meal for our next dinner guests sorted! Looking forward to trying the Cauliflower Risotto next! Keep ’em coming please!
