RECIPE from Cooper’s Kitchen    

Cauliflower Pizza Dough

Prep Time: 15 minutes     Cooking Time: 15 minutes       GF DF Vegetarian


  • 1 medium head of cauliflower – about 3 cups processed
  • 1/4 tsp sea  salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder (opt)
  • a few shakes of crushed red pepper
  • 2 tbsp almond meal (is almond flour)
  • 1 tbsp (or more if desired) nutritional yeast (0r not)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or grape seed oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 c. mozzarella (or shredded dairy free cheese like Daiya (pepperjack is my fave) to mix into dough & at least 1 cup to spread on top before broiling
  1. Place a pizza stone in the oven, or baking sheet while oven is heating. On a cutting board, place a large piece of parchment paper.
  2. Wash and thoroughly dry a small head of cauliflower. Don’t get one the size of your head unless you are planning on making 2 pizzas.
  3. Cut off the florets. Pulse in your food processor for about 30 seconds, until the consistency of crumbs. You should end up with about 3 cups cauliflower.
  4. Place in a microwave safe bowl with a little water and cover. Microwave for 4 minutes. Next, drain steamed cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and allow to cool
  5. Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, wrap it up in the dish towel and ring the water out of it. You want to squeeze out as much water as possible.Cauliflower  pizza dough
  6. This will ensure you get a chewy pizza like crust instead of a crumbly mess.
  7. Combine cauliflower with your spices, your almond meal, your nutritional yeast (if using),  olive oil and 1/3 c shredded cheese. Mix to incorporate all the ingredients. Now add your egg and mix again. Hands work great.
  8. Now you are ready to form the dough into a crust on your parchment paper. Pat it down thoroughly, you want it nice and tightly formed together. Don’t make it too thick or thin

(My nose usually knows when it’s done! about 12- 15 minutes, or until it starts to turn golden brown and the edges crisp up. ( I still use a timer in case I get distracted) Remove from oven and let cool.


Elaine’s Tip: 

As tempting as it is to taste right away, wait a couple of  minutes to cool. Using a pizza cutter and a spatula serve up your delicious grain-free and dairy-free cauliflower crust pizza! Any leftovers?  Freeze for lunches.
