Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Why Cauliflower?

Cauliflower pizza crust is a great alternative to pizza dough for those looking to try something new, low carb, or a little healthier. Not only that, but this pizza crust is naturally gluten-free making it a great option for those who are looking for gluten-free dough recipes. Made up of mostly cauliflower and held together with the binding agents of cheese and egg this pizza crust compliments most pizza toppings very nicely.

Admittedly, it does taste a lot like its main ingredients, cauliflower and egg. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, those that are trying to satisfy a real pizza craving may want to add the Pizzacraft® herb blend to their recipe to try and mimic pizza dough flavors a little more. Additionally, it does take longer to cook than a regular pizza because it is not really a dough substance, it is a baked crust and it is important that the bottom browns to keep the crust together.

How To Make Cauliflower Pizza Crust


1 head cauliflower (white, purple, green, or yellow!)

1/2 cup low moisture shredded mozzarella

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon Pizzacraft® seasoning herb blend

2 eggs, lightly beaten 


1. Preheat the Pizzeria Pronto® oven or conventional oven with baking stone to 500º F.

2. Remove the stem from the cauliflower stalk. Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in a food processor until fine. Steam in a steamer basket for a few minutes. Let cool.

3. Place the steamed the cauliflower on a clean dish towel and ring out as much water as you can. Repeat several times.

4. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine cauliflower, mozzarella, parmesan, oregano, salt, garlic powder, Pizzacraft® herb blend, and eggs.

5. Spread into 1/4 inch thick circle on a baking sheet or parchment paper. Carefully move the crust to a pizza stone or the pizza oven and bake for 15 minutes.

6. Remove the pizza, add desired toppings and bake an additional 10 minutes until the bottom of the crust begins to brown.


The trickiest part of this process is not ripping the crust as you transfer it to the oven. In its uncooked state, the cauliflower wants to crumble. If possible, make the pizza on parchment paper while on metal pizza peel so that the transition to the oven is easy. Once the crust is fully cooked it holds together a little better.

Greek Yogurt Pizza Dough Recipe

Two Ingredient Pizza Dough

I was looking around this week for new pizza recipes when I stumbled upon something super interesting: a recipe claiming you could make pizza dough in 10 minutes with just two ingredients! While that shocked me, I was even more surprised when the recipe said the main ingredient was Greek Yogurt! Naturally, this was something I needed to try. 

greek yogurt pizza dough

To get the full effect of the Greek yogurt dough I decided to test three different brands of plain Greek yogurt. The way the recipe essentially works is the yogurt is mixed with self-rising flour. When the flour is combined with the somewhat acidic Greek yogurt the mixture becomes very similar to pizza dough. The dough retains a fair amount of yogurt taste and is less elastic than regular dough. Even still, the recipe is extremely fast and the Greek yogurt adds a ton of protein to your pizza, making it a fun and worthwhile recipe to try out!

Here is our take on the best Greek yogurt to try this recipe with.

Two Ingredient Pizza Dough Recipe

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (can easily be made by combining 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt)

1 Cup Greek Yogurt


Combine Ingredients in a bowl and begin to mix with a spoon or spatula.Once the mixture begins to combine, knead the dough on a floured surface for 7 minutes.Add flour as needed while mixing as the dough can be sticky and moist.When dough is fully kneaded cut the dough ball in half. These will get you two 10 inch pizzas.Roll each ball out to about 10 inches on a floured surface. Rolling is recommended as the dough does not stretch like traditional pizza dough.Add toppings and cook in the Pizzeria Pronto® or conventional oven on a pizza stone for around 8-10 minutes at 600 degrees F or until the dough becomes golden brown. But honestly, keep an eye out while cooking, because the dough stayed more “wet” that we like it to be, and could have been cooked longer.

The Best Greek Yogurt To Use 

Yogurt 1 Clover Whole Milk 3.5%

The Clover Greek Yogurt was our favorite yogurt for this recipe. While all the yogurts produced solid dough, the higher milk fat of this yogurt added a little more flavor and color to the dough. Though it created a more soggy pizza.

Yogurt 2 Fage Total 2%

Similar to Clover this yogurt made dough that both tasted good and held up very well in the oven. Although the slightly less milk fat took away some flavor and color from the dough. Arguably, you may not want to taste the full spectrum of Greek yogurt while eating your pizza.

Yogurt 3 Aussie Greek Yogurt 1.5%

Having the lowest milk fat this yogurt lacked the flavor that dough 1 and 2 had. While it didn’t affect the ability to make the dough at all, it just didn’t seem to have as much of a taste. Though it created a more crunchy pizza.

You may never make pizza the same again after you have tried this recipe, that is if you are still willing to call this a pizza. While all the Greek yogurts worked, the pizzas we made did have a really distinctive taste. That said, they still tasted good and were all eaten. So if you are looking for a fast dough for a last minute pizza packed with protein, this is a great option!

On top of that, we only used plain yogurt for this recipe, thinking flavored yogurt might make it too complicated. After this experiment though, I think it might be fun to try some other flavors out and see what happens, maybe make a dessert pizza with some fancy honey or strawberry Greek yogurt.

5 Accessories To Take Your Pizza Party To The Next Level!

5 Accessories To Take Your Pizza Party To The Next Level!

Just about everyone has been to a bad pizza party. With greasy pizza in a box, it tastes like the box, and you’re choices are pepperoni or cheese. While this might offend those of your that are nostalgic, I think we have grown out of this Chucky Cheese pizza party.

Meanwhile, we have developed a taste for homemade pizza, but it’s still easy to get stuck in the same ruts. In order to bring some life to your pizza parties again, here are 5 of our favorite tools and accessories to switch up your pizza rotation and take your party to the next level!

Calzone Press

Calzone Press

The Calzone Press is single-handedly my favorite Pizzacraft® tool. I love this tool because it brings everyone in on the pizza making process! Almost like a taco bar, you can set up a calzone making station where each guest gets to add their own fillings to their calzone before throwing them all in the oven! The press is easy for everyone to use and makes a perfect calzone every time; once you learn to not overstuff it.

Pizza Cone Set

If you want to get a little flashier than the calzone, you can make the more modern Pizza Cones. Pizza cones are essentially a pizza version of an ice cream cone. They offer the same craft-ability as a calzone with the added benefit of being an upright cone! Not only are these picture-worthy, but also pretty fun to eat.

Pizza Seasonings

Sometimes you get stuck making the same kind of pizzas, but who can blame you? You know what toppings you like! I understand that’s why if I am looking for something different I will start by changing the flavor of my dough with the three Pizzacraft® herb blends. Each blend adds a flavor profile of a specific pizza style giving a whole new dynamic to your pizza! You can add the blends into your dough, sauce, or sprinkle some on top.

Pizza Cookbook

pizza cookbook recipes

If variations on your classic pizza are not what you’re looking for, you can step outside the box with the Pizzacraft® Pizza Cookbook. The cookbook features some of our favorite unique artisan style pizza recipes that are sure to surprise your guests. Not only that, but there is an entire dessert pizza section that will have you making pizza for every meal.

Deep Dish Pan

Becoming more and more popular is our Deep Dish Pan. The deep-dish can be a great way to make things a little different and even a little fancier by crafting a layered deep-dish pizza. So if you are having more of a dinner party than backyard BBQ I would try making a classic Chicago style pizza or inventing your own deep-dish creation.

Pizza Roses

How To Make Pizza Roses

A fun way to change up your pizza night is to make a cheese stuffed pizza cone. The pizza cone is like an ice cream cone except it is made with dough and filled with your favorite toppings.

The process is a little more complicated than making a regular pizza, but the results are worth it. The Pizzacraft® Pizza Cone Set makes things easy by giving you a template to cut out your cones and holders to cook the cones upright in the oven. We used our set to make a Pinterest favorite, Pizza Roses, except ours or stuffed with cheese and pepperoni!

Pizza Roses

Start With a Pizza Cone


Pre-heat oven or grill to 400° F.Roll your pizza dough out to 1/16″ thickness and use the cutter to cut out two pizza cone shapes. 

Pizza Cone
Dab edges of the dough with water and fold over to seal. Use the Pizza Cone Set dough crimper to ensure the seam is closed.

Lightly flour the silicone cone mold and slide dough onto the mold. Par-bake this cone upright for 6-8 minutes, or until it begins to lightly brown.Remove cone from oven or grill, let it rest for a few minutes then remove crust from the cone mold.

pizza cone recipe
Place par-baked crust into the pizza cone stand and fill with your favorite ingredients.Return stand and crust to the oven or grill and bake until golden and bubbly.Let cool before eating… if you can wait that long!

If you want to take things a little further you can add an extra step and make your Pizza Cones pop with Pizza Roses for the top!

To Make The Pizza Rose Top:

Cut a strip of dough that is about 8” long and 1.5” wide.Very lightly spread sauce over the dough.Layer pepperonis longwise across the dough, leaving a little bit of dough open at the end.Add cheese on the Botton portions of the pepperonis and then roll them longwise into a rose shape.Par-bake this rose upright in a muffin pan until it holds its shape. You can use tin foil to keep it in place while baking if your muffin tin is too big.Once both your cones and roses are par-baked, simply slide the rose into the top of your pre-stuffed cone and finish cooking!The result will be a cone overflowing with rose pedal top, which looks just as good as it tastes.
