21 Day Fix
As is, it’s 2 servings (2 crusts) on the 21 Day Fix. One pizza crust is 1 green container, 1.5 blue containers, 1/4 red container. One half of one crust (which is a reasonable serving) is 1/2 green container, 3/4 blue container, negligible red. Don’t forget to add your toppings!
Weight Watchers Freestyle
The entire recipe is 11 Weight Watchers Smart Points. For one crust you would have 5 or 6 points however you’d like to calculate.
No additional points necessary for 1/2 cup tomato sauce and fresh spinach for topping! If you add more cheese be sure to add extra points! You can also use nutritional yeast on top for a nutty, vegan cheese experience!

Ingredients needed for my pizza crust recipe:
You can find the amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of this post but here’s the ingredients you need to make this delicious homemade low carb pizza crust.
- Mozzarella Cheese
That’s right, you read the whole list in one blink…it’s that simple. There’s just three ingredients in this delicious pizza dough recipe. It’s not a traditional rising dough that will double in size. This is going to stay pretty much true to the size you form it out to be: plan accordingly :)
Tools for making cauliflower pizza crust:
A pizza pan will make baking a breeze and of course you’ll want a pizza cutter to slice them up just right! Another great way to make these tasty pizzas is with a baking stone, or a pizza oven like we use.
They get that perfectly cooked bottom with an easy to use ceramic baking stone. You can use a regular baking sheet as well.
How to make homemade pizza crust:
Place the cauliflower in food processor and mince. Add the mozzarella and egg, then stir it together with a spoon or fork. You can also mix in a stand mixer but I find the food processor is easier and everything gets blended really well.
Preheat the oven during this time as well. This pizza dough recipe will work best when put into a hot oven!
Press onto parchment paper in a circle or square (or any other desired pizza shape) on a pizza stone or baking sheet and cook for 7 minutes on 400 degrees, or in a pizza oven.
Flip the pizza crust and add your toppings like olive oil, mozzarella cheese, spinach, etc. to the bottom of the crust (it gets a little crispier that way), and bake another 7 minutes or until browned.
Look at those results! It’s a perfect pizza recipe that is a little healthier and more wholesome!
When halving this recipe, you can still use one egg–it comes out just fine. If you want the recipe to double in size you can do that as well! Perfect for letting the whole family make their own pizza!
