Keto Cauliflower Pizza
Who Says You Can’t Eat Pizza On Keto?
When I began my keto diet, like most people, I stuck to the very simple eggs, meat and cheese meals. But the weekends would bring pizza cravings, and two years ago, almond flour was not a staple in my pantry. When I began doing research, I discovered the cauliflower pizza crust, and that’s what came to my rescue. It definitely didn’t taste like bread, but it was so amazing to see that it held together like a real pizza. With a good keto marinara sauce and some nice toppings, I didn’t miss the bread all that much.
One Cauliflower Pizza Crust. A World of Topping Possibilities.
As for the pizza toppings, I used what I had at the time, which was some salami and fresh basil. But there’s a world of possibilities there. I’d love to get some sausage meat, mushrooms, bacon, olives, garlic, bell peppers… I could go on and on. I will say this though: the cauliflower pizza does require a bit of work, so it’s not a bad idea to prepare your dough even a day in advance. You could also possibly freeze it, but I’ve never done that. It’s mainly the ricing, cooking and squeezing the water from the cauliflower that takes some time. Once that is done, it’s not a lot of work. Unfortunately there is no version of this that has worked for me without egg, so apologies to my ‘pure veg’ friends. Parchment paper is also your best friend in this recipe: grease it well with a bit of oil and the pizza will be easy to peel off it after it’s cooked. Enjoy this low-carb cauliflower pizza recipe and tell us what your favourite toppings for this are!

What can I substitute the egg with in this recipe?
There is no substitute for egg in this recipe. Instead make the fat head crust and leave the egg out in that.
Super, thank you!
Can you please let me know what you refer to as the fat head crust?
Did not understand how to have egg out.

I am new to keto and your channel. I have watched a lot of the you tube recipes and have tried some of them, they are very good! I have to say I had a rough start. Doing much better now. I’ve lost 23 lbs. in 2 months and have about 20 to go. I thought there was nothing I could do to fight this fat I was gaining. It’s like the fat just melts off. I hate to exercise. Thank you for all your hard work in putting these recipes out. I’m very excited to try more.
Thank you for the kind words. Good luck on your journey 🙂 glad you enjoy the recipes.

Thank you Gary!
Hey! Awesome kitchen! Quick question…. is there a substitute for Parmesan cheese in the pizza crust? Or is it possible to omit?
You could omit it or replace with maybe a cheddar cheese
Hi big fan of your recipes !!
I tried making the cauliflower pizza but it stuck to the parchment paper the same happened with the fathead base too!! Any reason how I can avoid it ? And also the fathead base turned out too liquid once I added the egg
This is an issue with your parchment paper, you are probably buying butter paper which is not the same. Or you need to buy a better quality one. For the egg part you can skip the egg completely or add it little by little because maybe the egg is large in size. So maybe just work with it slowly.
pls come up with more veg recipes (eggless)
love this channel ..good job
Made this today. Turned out better than expected!
Should we use the packaged tomato sauce? Or we should make it; if we should make it at home plz share recipe.
Here is the recipe for the sauce: https://headbangerskitchen.com/recipe/keto-marinara-sauce/
If you can find a low carb sauce then you can use that, it really depends which part of the world you live in.
is the 8 grams per the full base. how big a pizza does one batch generally make.
8 grams of what? The recipe makes 1 pizza base about 8″. Might be bigger if you make it thinner. or smaller if you make it thicker.
i just tried your recipe and is tastes really delicios. the crust was not very stable for me though.
what do you mean with 250 grams cauliflower? raw or after you squeeze the water out of it?
250grams of raw cauliflower
hi Sahil, this keto cauliflower i can prepare and keep in the fridge? if yes how many days? as i love pizza most of the time i will be baking it and my work schedule is to hectic.
I appreciate your reply.
Yes you can make it and freeze it or keep it in the fridge fro 3-4 days. Even a week is ok but cauliflower tends to get smelly, it’s safe to eat but it tends to get smelly.
How many cups of cauliflower is 250 grams?
John please buy a scale when you can, it’s cheap, efficient, accurate and a friend for life. But it would be about a cup and then some.
Can we cook this on the stove aswell? If oven isn’t accessable?
Yes you can try doing that it might work.
hi can we replace parmesan cheese with mozarella cheese
Now it ask for you to squeeze the water out of the cauliflower pizza. but you are not adding water so where is the water.
All vegetables are made up of water.
