This Margherita Pizza with Cauliflower Crust tastes just like pizza without all of the calories or carbs! It’s a great Gluten Free option as well! This is seriously, hands down, the best pizza I’ve ever had that’s Gluten free!
I’ll admit I was a skeptic, using cauliflower for a pizza crust? Honestly you really can’t even tell the difference between this and a regular pizza crust. You will however see a difference in the calorie and carb intake! This Margherita Pizza with Cauliflower Crust has around 200 calories and only 10 carbs per serving!

I started making pizza with a cauliflower crust almost 2 years ago after I went Gluten free in my diet. Over the last 2 years of tweaking the recipe several times, I finally have it down to perfection!
This totally satisfies my pizza cravings!
Honestly I thought my pizza eating days were over after going Gluten free. I tried several kinds of frozen Gluten free pizzas and they tasted like cardboard. If you’ve tried any of those, than you know what I mean!
You don’t need to be Gluten free to enjoy this pizza. In fact my 13 year old ‘picky eater’ son LOVES this pizza! He asks me to make it for him all the time, even though he says he doesn’t like cauliflower, ha! Anytime I can get him to eat vegetables and like it is good enough for me! 🙂
Ok, let’s dig into this Margherita Pizza with Cauliflower Crust!
Now once you have the cauliflower pizza crust baked. Go ahead and add your favorite pizza sauce or my super yummy marinara sauce. Just sayin’! 🙂
Then just add the sliced Roma Tomatoes and the fresh Basil on top. I just love the smell of fresh Basil, don’t you?
Next top with your favorite Mozzarella cheese and bake 10 to 15 minutes longer until the cheese is nice and bubbly and the crust is golden brown.
Make sure you let it sit for about 5 minutes before cutting into it.
Then sit back and enjoy every low carb slice of goodness! Since it’s so low in carbs, you could even indulge in a glass of wine, or two, or three… 🙂
