For the Cauliflower Crust:

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • Grated Parmesan cheese OR Mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup
  • Almond flour or chickpea flour (for binding) 1/4 cup
  • Nutritional yeast 2 tablespoons
  • 1 flaxseed or chia seed egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds or chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water)
  • Dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon
  • Garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or pizza sauce (low-sugar or homemade)
  • 1 cup shredded non-dairy cheese (such as almond, cashew, or soy-based cheese)
  • Your favorite vegetarian toppings (e.g., sliced bell peppers, red onions, olives, spinach, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, etc.)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place a pizza stone or a baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
  2. Prepare the flaxseed or chia seed egg:
    • In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseeds or chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir well and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes to gel.
  3. Start by making the cauliflower crust:
    • Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until they resemble fine crumbs.
    • Transfer the cauliflower crumbs to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is soft.
    • Allow the cauliflower to cool slightly, then place it in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the drained cauliflower, grated Parmesan, almond flour, nutritional yeast, flaxseed or chia seed egg, dried oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix everything until well combined.
  4. Place a piece of parchment paper on a flat surface and spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Transfer the cauliflower mixture to the parchment paper and shape it into a pizza crust of your desired thickness. Aim for an even thickness and make sure the edges are slightly raised to form a crust.
  6. Carefully slide the parchment paper with the cauliflower crust onto the preheated pizza stone or baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden and firm.
  7. Remove the crust from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. Meanwhile, reduce the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C).
  8. Once the crust has cooled slightly, spread the tomato or pizza sauce evenly over it. Then, add the shredded non-dairy cheese and your choice of vegetarian toppings.
  9. Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the non-dairy cheese is melted and bubbly, and the toppings are cooked to your liking.
  10. Remove the cauliflower crust pizza from the oven, let it cool briefly, slice, and serve. Enjoy your healthy and dairy-free vegetarian cauliflower crust pizza!
