for crust

  • 1 small head of cauliflower, leaves and stems removed
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Manchengo sheep milk cheese (or Mozzarella)
  • 2 eggs
  • cornmeal, to dust the pizza stone

for pizza

  • 1 jar marinara or pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup sheep milk cheese
  • 5-8 basil leaves


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Chop cauliflower florets into chunks. Pulse the cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles a fine grain, like rice or couscous. Pour cauliflower into a large bowl. Add herbs, and salt, then cheese and eggs.
  • Spread a tablespoon or so of cornmeal all over a pizza stone. Place the cauliflower mixture (note- this won't resemble a ball of dough) on the middle of the stone and use your hands to press it into a circle about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 350 then an additional 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Crust will be done when it turns golden brown in color.
  • Remove crust from oven. Change oven temperature to 450 degrees. Add pizza sauce, cheese and whatever toppings you would like, then bake again for about 5 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.
