This Costco Copycat Cauliflower Pizza Crust is a crisp and chewy recipe that involves NO squeezing, steaming or cooking cauliflower! It came together after trials of making to replicate that incredibly delicious cauliflower crust pizza from Costco!

To make this Costco Copycat Cauliflower pizza crust you’ll only need One fourth of a cauliflower head which will give you 3 pizza’s! And the good part is that you can FREEZE these just like the Costco ones! So even if you quadruple the recipe to use up a whole head of cauliflower, it’ll make 12 freezer friendly pizzas (yay for future pizza dinners!) But before you get working on the dough, make these ROASTED VEGETABLES! They will complete your pizza!

I attempted to go flour-less when making these cauliflower pizza crusts but couldn’t get the dough right. All brown rice flour resulted in a grainy dough and the crust ended up cracking. So I came to the conclusion that I must use flour because I don’t have cellulose powder, calcium chloride, tapioca starch and xanthan gum to put into my pizza, (ingredients found on the ingredient list of the Costco pizza.) So flour it was and it does make a great alternative (and probably a healthier one too!) But if you are on a strict diet perhaps milled oatmeal or other milled light grain can be substituted for the flour. Our children can even this cauliflower pizza crust!

WHAT IS RICED CAULIFLOWER?

Riced cauliflower is basically cauliflower that has been pulsed or blended into small “riced” sized pieces. A boxed grater, blender or food processor can be used to achieve that consistency.

CAN YOU FREEZE RICED CAULIFLOWER?

YES! I have seen a post on how to freeze and prep cauliflower rice. So if you want to prep riced cauliflower before hand go ahead and pulse the cauliflower and freeze into 1 cup measurements.

HOW MUCH RICE DOES ONE HEAD OF CAULIFLOWER MAKE?

My head of cauliflower was just over 2 lbs, so about 1/4 of a head makes 1 cup of riced cauliflower. So a large head of cauliflower can make from any where to 4-5 cups of riced cauliflower.

DO YOU HAVE TO STEAM OR COOK CAULIFLOWER FOR PIZZA?

No, I prefer to make things easier at times and steaming or cooking cauliflower can make a for lengthy process of unnecessary steps (in this case at least.) But if it’s crucial for a recipe then it’s best to follow the instructions to achieve exactly what your aiming for.

    I made this pizza and is delicious. Thank you so much. Just a little thing. In your nutrition facts you said the size serving is 1g. It does make any sense because 1g is .03 ounces.
    I saved this recipe. It was so perfect and easy to make. My kids ate them like a regular pizza.
