  • 1 head cauliflower — cut off the florets
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and ground fresh black pepper


  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce — (you can make your own by liking here)
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ mushroom — slices
  • 3 oz Pepperoni slices


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment and lightly spray with olive oil spray. Set aside.
  3. Pulse the cauliflower florets in a food processor for about 25-30 seconds until it's a rice-like consistency.
  4. Place the cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 4 minutes.
  5. Once cauliflower is cool enough to handle, transfer to a kitchen towel and wring out. You need to squeeze out as much as you can.
  6. Place the cauliflower in a bowl and add the egg and seasonings. Using your hands combine everything and form a ball.
  7. Place the ball on a baking sheet and press the ball out to form a pizza shape. The crust should be no more than ½ inch (1 cm) thick. You can use a kitchen towel to help you to form a pizza shape. It will helpful to absolve more liquids if necessary.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven.
  9. Top with pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, and mushroom.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes more or until cheese has melted.
