Dr Jockers Comments:
One of the most common complaints I get from people is that they can no longer eat pizza or must restrict their pizza intake when they begin my program. I always respond by saying that they just have to get more creative and innovative. Using a cauliflower crust makes this grain-free and anti-inflammatory for the body!
This is a fantastic recipe for a true pizza flavor and texture without all the nasty inflammatory carbs and toxic fats. You get tons of incredible nutrients in this recipe, healthy fats and antioxidants. This is a whole super-food based meal that the family will love and enjoy for many meals to come!

I will try this pizza it looks yummmy
Let us know how it turns out or anything you add Rosa!
Every time I try to make a cauliflower pizza crust, I burn the edges. UCK!
How do I keep from burning the edges and not have a soggy pizza?
Hey Linda, Making sure you strain out as much of the liquid from the cauliflower as possible can help ensure an evenly baked crust! You could also flip the pizza crusts half way through baking to see if that helps.
What temperature do you bake pizza?
Hey Nancy, I recommend 450F.
bummer we can’t do dairy so no cheese here, and I doubt that the shreds alternative we use will hold up as well as traditional. Looks yummy though!
Try Miyoko’s Fresh Vegan MOZZ… really a great alternative cheese and use almond milk….
Thanks for the suggestion Jude!
Hey Nikki, You could experiment with using arrowroot starch to help bind and nutritional yeast for added flavor.
I would love to try this recipe. What is the weight of the cauliflower initially? I buy raw cauliflower that is already riced from Trader Joe’s. Thanks!
Hey Laureen, I’m not sure of the weight but it is fresh and riced when measured into 2 cups. You could measure out 2 cups from the pre-riced cauliflower as well.
Hi: in beginning of this post, you said to be sure to check all the way down for the pesto and margarita recipes for this pizza as shown. However, there is nothing after the recipe or in the recipe for the two versions you show. Can I/we get the recipes for these as well? thank you. 🙂
I make this pizza once or twice a week. I do not steam it though, I use it raw (ground in a food processor) with an egg or two and ricotta cheese or goat cheese. It is so much easier and wonderful!! I love it. My kids can’t have regular cheese but they can eat goat cheese.
Thanks for sharing Sandy!
I agree. It is not necessary to pre-steam the cauliflower. It cooks well enough in the oven.
I make this often, I have made two versions one using fresh grated cauliflower, one using organic frozen cauliflower rice, I ‘dry fry’ (no oils) in a skillet, not cooking it but on med heat, stir and get the moisture out, (about 4-5 minutes, stir, stir, stir) let it cool and continue, we could not tell the difference between the two, and the frozen cauliflower is a time saver….the best pizza crust ever, you can even make small bread rounds with this/taco shell because it’s flexible and doesn’t crack….(I always use parm cheese for this)
Thanks for sharing!
I will be trying this recipe, love a good cauliflower crust! Question, has anyone tried freezing them for future use? Thank you
Would gelatin work for egg free?
You can try that out and see!
Try a flax seed or chia seed egg or two. See net for recipes.
Hello fellow traveler… (spy) how are you? I’ll pray for you. I’d love to spy one others, too. People are so interesting!! Really! Well, as you know we’re living in the last days. See 2 Timothy 3:1-5 in the Bible. Things are going to get much worse. Psalms 23 promises that Jehovah will be our shepherd if we rely on him. See http://www.JW.org…. ☺
Just wondering if you have a Detox list for helping those that have been effected by the
cova shedding. I have had a rash on my face and various parts of my body since people
started getting the “Jab”. Even on my scalp and in my ears… Unfortunately, being a
barber I am touching peoples hair and faces and wearing gloves is impossible when shaving a customers face. You have to be able to feel the bone structure and muscles of the face to shave correctly.
thank you for any information you might be able to proved.
Yes Stephen, here are our top immune support strategies: https://drjockers.com/immune-support-strategies/
yes, you can bake cauliflower pizza crusts and freeze for later. As long as you bake again it is fine.
I made the pizzas and I think I will only make these in the future. Very easy and sooooo tasty. Thank you for sending all of the valuable information. I appreciate you.
