Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Crust

I tried a vegan cauliflower pizza crust once with major failure. I did not dry it at all, nor did I cook it before hand, so it just ended up as a really soggy pizza. Not good.

This crust, however, is different.  I modified the vegan cauliflower pizza crust recipe from Detoxinista, and it turned out amazing. I’m going to be having pizza every week!

  • Prep: 25 min
  • Cook: 60 min
  • Yields: 2-4 servings



[column size=’1/2′]

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 TBSP ground flax seed
  • 6 TBSP water
  • 1/2 c brown rice flour[/column]

[column size=’1/2′]

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano



Other Items:

  • Cheese cloth or other thin cloth.
  • Parchment paper


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Chop the cauliflower head up into small pieces.  You can cook these by either putting them in the microwave for 7-10 minutes or by boiling them.
  3. Drain the cauliflower well, and then add to a food processor.  Process until smooth.
  4. Using a cheese cloth or other thin cloth, squeeze out the extra liquid.
  5. Combine the ground flax seed and water and let it set for 5 minutes (I used a coffee grinder to freshly grind the flax seed, which always seem to give more of a sticky product).
  6. Combine the cauliflower, flax seed mixture, and spices.
  7. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Press the dough into the parchment paper until it is about 1/3 inches thick.vegan cauliflower pizza crust

  10. Let cook and enjoy your pizza!
