Mini Cauliflower Pizza is a great option for a low carb and delicious side dish, healthy snacks recipes, or lunch. We love pizza and order it some Friday nights, but I will now be making this version for my family when we have a pizza craving. I enjoy finding healthy alternatives to foods we like, with a similar taste. I searched Pinterest for new ideas and came across an amazing recipe for cauliflower pizza at Dashing Dish! I have also made Cheesy Cauliflower Pancakes for another awesome way to eat a low carb meal or side dish. My family LOVED the Mini Cauliflower Pizza and they tasted great dipped in pizza sauce. Weekends are sometimes filled with extra treats, take out, and a less healthy meal here and there. By the time Sunday afternoon rolled around and after eating too much over the weekend, I wanted to make a healthy and yummy snack for my family while we relaxed and played games. Mini Cauliflower Pizza was the perfect choice! They were easy to make, everyone loved them, and they kept us satisfied until we ate dinner!
- 4 cups Cauliflower about 1 head of cauliflower
- 1/2 cup Egg whites or 2 large egg whites

- Place cauliflower in microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. (Do NOT add water or cover).
- Remove cauliflower from microwave and add the rest of the ingredients
- Stir to combine, place back in microwave for 2 minutes, and mix again
- Scoop cauliflower mixture into muffin liners, dividing evenly between the 8 liners Fill to the top, and press filling down so it’s compact in liner

These sound really great, Stacey. I have had cauliflower with spaghetti sauce and meatballs, and in place of mashed potatoes, but I never would have thought as an alternative pizza crust! Going to have to try this for sure. Thanks fro sharing at Wicked Good Wednesdays this week! Totally pinned 🙂

I’ve seen the cauliflower crust a lot but have been to chicken to try it. I just can’t imagine it. Your pizza looks so good though. I am going to go for it anyway. Thanks for sharing on Thursdays Treasues.

I have never thought of using cauliflower to make the crust of a pizza. I am sure it is great. We are being more careful of what we eat, so I am sure this would fit in our diet wonderfully.
Thank you for linking up to the In and Out of the Kitchen link party. I can’t wait to see what you bring next week.
