  • 2 cups riced cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 3/4 cup grated whole milk mozzarella, divided into 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp plus 2 tsp chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • cooking spray
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat.
  2. To rice cauliflower, take a half-head of cleaned, trimmed cauliflower, and break into florets. Pulse in food processor until it is the size of large rice kernels. (Prepared riced cauliflower is available in supermarkets.)
  3. Steam cauliflower over boiling water for 4 minutes. Or cook in microwave on high for 1 minute, stir, cook an additional 2 minutes, and stir, (add another minute if needed to cook through).
  4. Spread cauliflower over a clean, dry dish towel or cheesecloth, and let cool for 5 minutes. Then bring four corners of towel together to form a pouch, and twist tightly over bowl or sink to drain as much liquid from the cauliflower as possible.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, add cauliflower, Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup of mozzarella, egg, garlic, 2 tsp basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  6. Spray lined baking sheet with cooking spray. Mound the dough onto the lined baking sheet. Use both hands and a spatula to create a 10" circle, 1/2 inch thick.
  7. Brush crust with olive oil, and bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from oven. Reduce heat to 350F.
  8. Top pizza with sauce and 1/2 cup of mozzarella. Return to oven for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  9. Scatter remaining fresh basil over top, and serve immediately.


Crust or pizza can be made a day in advance. Just refrigerate and reheat.
