Meaty Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Rectangle pizza on a wooden board.

Riced cauliflower mixed with egg, almond flour and parmesan makes a naturally protein-rich, gluten-free pizza crust. The chopped bacon makes it extra delicious.

As Featured in The Applegatarian.

Serves 6 | Total Time: Less Than 60 Mins



  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cook the bacon in a skillet over moderate heat, stirring often, until crisp and golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  3. To make the crust, pulse half of the cauliflower in a food processor until it’s riced. Transfer the cauliflower to a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess water. Transfer the cauliflower to a bowl. Repeat with the remaining cauliflower. Add the almond flour, parmesan, eggs, salt and cooled bacon and stir well to combine.
  4. Scrape the cauliflower mixture onto the lined baking sheet and use your hands to press into an even layer. Bake until crust is dry and golden in spots, 30-35 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  5. Spread the tomatoes and shredded mozzarella over the crust. Top with the meat. Return to the oven and bake until cheese is bubbling, 12-15 minutes.
  6. Top pizza with the arugula and hot pepper flakes. Cut into pieces and serve at once.
