Raise your hand if this ever happens to you: you make dinner for your kids– maybe that’s leftovers or sandwiches or frozen waffles because you just-can’t-even right now– and then you realize that you are starving and have nothing to eat for yourself. It can be exhausting to make a healthy dinner for yourself. It feels, well, selfish. Options like my cauliflower crust pizza are yummy, but they can also be time consuming. So I created this little recipe with some trial and error, and I’m super pleased with the result!

Here are the reasons why I love it:
🌟 It’s super easy and fast– I can make the whole thing in under 8 minutes (5 of that being microwave time that I use to clean up or help kids or do other things!)
🌟 It’s low-carb, which is super important for my struggle with PCOS.
🌟 I can pick up the slices and eat them like real pizza — no fork necessary.

Oh, and it’s delicious of course!

The Ingredients

The crust is super simple: almond flour, riced cauliflower, egg, garlic powder, & italian seasoning (or any spices you love!)

You’ll also want some toppings — I chose marinara, mozzarella cheese, & bacon.

The Instructions

I buy a large head of cauliflower each week and rice it in my Ninja blender. I eat this in a myriad of ways– it’s so versatile and easy to grab a 1/2 cup or a cup whenever I need if it’s riced already.

Okay, once the cauliflower is ready, now you’re ready to make your pizza.

Put 1/4 cup of almond flour in a bowl.

Add 1/2 cup of the riced cauliflower.

Sprinkle on some garlic powder and italian seasoning, or whatever spices you want.

Then stir it up!

Get a microwave safe plate, and spritz it with nonstick spray (click here to see my favorite oil sprayer!) Then scrape your crust mixture onto the plate.

Using your fingers (wet them if necessary), push the dough until it is flat. Mine ended up being about 7″ across.

Now, microwave 3-4 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the edges start to pull up from the plate. And when you touch the middle, it should not feel wet.

Now all that’s left is to add your pizza toppings:

And microwave one more minute to melt your cheese.

I sliced mine into six tiny slices. And each one was delightfully pick-up-able!

And for the crust with the toppings I chose (should be pretty close if you choose similar toppings, like pepperoni or sausage)
