I’m kind of nuts about cauliflower. I eat a lot of it, and one of my favorite ways is in pizza form. Almost two years ago I posted this Cauliflower Pizza Crust recipe, and it’s still the only one I use.

My favorite way to make cauliflower crust pizza is BBQ chicken style. However, every time I make it I forget to take photos or I’m so hungry I figure I’ll blog it later.

The time has finally come!

I planned ahead, started the recipe earlier and had my camera ready to go (my husband is used to the fact that he can’t touch the food until I get a decent photo or two. What can I say? That’s life with a blogger.).

This time I preheated my oven to 425, and tried that. It actually worked really well, but the edges burnt a bit. I didn’t mind, it made the pizza look a little more “rustic”.

After I put the Paleo BBQ Sauce and toppings on; I turned to oven down to 400 and baked until the cheese melted and the pizza looked fabulous.

Yeah, it turned out awesome. Don’t you just love it when a recipe turns out perfect?

On the original post for the Cauliflower crust pizza recipe, I had a lot of people tell me they couldn’t pick up the pizza or that it crumbled. Here’s some troubleshooting for you:

  • Make sure it’s not too thick. 1/4 inch is usually how thick I spread it.
  • When you “rice” the cauliflower take a bunch of paper towels and squeeze the excess moisture out. You want it as dry as possible.
  • Everyone’s ovens are a little different, cook it until it’s done for you. Just because I say 30 minutes, maybe it takes you 35 or 40. Just make sure it doesn’t burn!
  • It won’t be a sturdy as regular pizza, but you should be able to pick it up. Worst case scenario: you eat it with a fork! It still tastes good.

BBQ Chicken Cauliflower Crust Pizza



  • Make pizza crust according to instructions, however this time I upped the oven to 425 (which resulted in a little burning on the edges but not bad) - I still baked for 30 minutes. If it's still too soft, bake longer.
  • Top pizza crust with BBQ sauce, then add chicken, purple onion or whatever other ingredients you want. Finish with cheese and parsley.
  • Bake for until cheese is melted and it looks delicious (this will take 10ish minutes).
  • Let cool 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
