Cauliflower Crust Pizza (Weight Watchers, Low Carb, Gluten Free)

This pizza crust is Weight Watchers friendly, low carb, and gluten free! The pizza crust has 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points (according to the 2019 calculations). 

I started Weight Watchers on Wednesday, and I have eaten more fruits and vegetables this week than I did throughout all of December. Seriously, I’ve had cauliflower four times in the last five days!

If you don’t know the deep details about Weight Watchers, they have something called a blue dot day which is when you stay within a certain point range for the day. For example, I am supposed to eat 23 points every day, but if I eat between 13 and 28 points I get a blue dot day.

Seriously though, who are these people who are eating only 13 points a day?! I can’t even stick to 23. Though I’ve decided that I’ll allow myself to eat as much as I need to, as long as I can stay within the blue dot range.

Today, I was craving pizza. Like, craving hard! And who hasn’t heard of cauliflower crust pizza? I had mashed cauliflower earlier in the week after reading this post from Kari at A Graceful Life and was feeling like cauliflower was the key to smashing my craving.

I looked up a few different cauliflower crust pizza recipes, and found this one by A Sweet Pea Chef and modified it to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. Also, goat cheese smells like goat. Have you ever smelled a goat? They smell like goat cheese. At least the males do.

This pizza was so good, that I ate the whole thing. Though, I’d suggest sharing this pizza with someone you really really like. My husband doesn’t eat olives or mushrooms, so I really had no choice but to eat the whole thing. But honestly it really was too much for me. Half would have done me just fine.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Riced Cauliflower
  • 2 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 Laughing Cow Creamy Swiss Wedges
  • 1/4 tsp Oregano
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Pizza Toppings of your Choice

Instructions

  • Add riced cauliflower to a medium frying pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste, and cook until the cauliflower starts to brown, and it starts to smell nutty. 
  • Remove cauliflower from heat, and allow it to cool. Once cool, dump cauliflower onto a cheese cloth, and squeeze out excess liquid. (Don’t skip this step! I was going to skip it, and a ton of water came out when I squeezed it! Also, don’t do this while it’s hot, I burned the heck out of my hands by not letting it cool first)
  • In a medium bowl, add strained cauliflower, and remaining ingredients. Mix until well combined. 
  • Pour mixture onto a pan lined with parchment paper, or a silicon baking mat.
  • Spread the mixture out into a rectangle no less than 1/3 of an inch thick. 
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and firm. Remove from the oven. 
  • Add your desired pizza ingredients, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. 
  • Remove from the oven and let cool just long enough that you won’t burn your hands and tongue. Cut and devour!

A quick note about lighting

I recently bought these lights from Amazon (affiliate link) and they have changed my life. Not only have they made my videos (<– check out my YouTube channel and subscribe!) possible, they’ve made my food photography so much better.

I took a picture of the pan with the light off:

Before, this is the picture I would use, and I would edit the crap out of it in Picmonkey. Now, with the light on, the picture looks like this:

And I didn’t edit it at all. Magic, right? If you are a blogger, and you are taking photos in your house, please do yourself a favor and buy these lights. They are worth the investment. And I’m not just saying that because it’s an affiliate link and I’ll make like half a cent on it if you buy them through me. Also, they’re cheaper now than they were when I bought them. I’m actually considering buying another set.

    SO MANY THINGS.
    1- I made cauliflower crust a few years ago (before I was even low-carb-ing it) and it turned out awful but this recipe is SO much better. You’ve given me hope that I will be able to eat pizza on this diet.

    2- That light. The difference is huge. I couldn’t wait for this post to publish because of your Instagram post.

    3- I know this doesn’t have anything to do with the post (have you just met me??) but I used your affiliate for Ipsy and got my first bag last week and HOLY BALLS I LOVE IT ALREADY. Anna and I are sharing the items and she was like, MOM!! I WANTED THIS FOR CHRISTMAS!

    The moral- you are good for me and my family.

      This one is really good, though I’m going to keep trying different ones and tweaking them until I find the perfect one. I want one that’s super crunchy. And this one was crunchy on the crust, but not in the middle. I don’t know if it’s possible to get a crunchy middle without adding a bunch more points though.

      Yes! The lights are magic! I hope you get them, because they are going to change your life.

      And yes!!! I’m sooooooo glad you love Ipsy. And isn’t it awesome that it’s only $10?! I am still always baffled that I can get so much for so little. And thank you for using my link, that’s the sweetest.

    No no no I hate cauliflower. And I love pizza. No offense haha your pizza looks amazing, but I’ll have it with regular crust and pepperoni! I love olives on my pizza too

      lol! OK, but how have you tried it? I thought I hated cauliflower too, but it was just that I wasn’t it cooking it to its potential. Have you tried it roasted? Also when you mash it or put it in pizza crust like this, you can’t taste it. I know everyone says that, but it’s true!

    I love how everyone is doing everything with cauliflower now! I loved it before, but now that there are so many things to do with it, I love it even more. Have you tried cauliflower garlic bread? It’s fantastic! Even my kids eat it!

      I never use to like cauliflower, because the only way I’d hate it was raw or frozen. When I first roasted it, I couldn’t believe how good it was! And now that I’m trying these other methods, I’m officially in love with it. Cauliflower and spaghetti squash own my heart, lol. I haven’t tried cauliflower garlic bread yet, do you have a recipe that you love?
