You read that right—yes, you can have pizza during whole30!
…with some modifications of course. This whole30 pizza recipe
will leave you feeling satisfied and SO happy, because pizza =
happiness. 

The one thing I’m currently craving while doing this second
whole30 is….. everything. I’m craving bread and sugar and all
my normal foods, one of them being pizza. I know so many people
work pizza into their weekly meal plan, and I don’t want anyone
to have to go an entire month without their beloved pizza night.
This whole30 pizza recipe is surprisingly filling despite the fact
that the crust is made of cauliflower. 

Have you tried cauliflower crust pizza? I know it’s been all
the rage for at least the past year, probably longer. Truthfully, I
don’t eat pizza often enough to feel like I need to sub out
regular pizza crust. But, now that this cauliflower crust has made
its debut into my life, I’m thinking that I might need to start a
weekly pizza tradition for myself. 

So what’s on this whole30 pizza anyway? What can you possibly
eat?! It all starts with the cauliflower crust. 

Tip: buy bagged cauliflower rice if it’s
available to you. This will save you time and you’ll be left with
less dishes in the end.

Tip: ALWAYS use parchment paper when making a
cauliflower crust. This will make it way easier to transfer the
pizza onto your plate and assure that the crust doesn’t stick to
the pan. 

The cauliflower crust is made with cauliflower rice, egg, almond
flour, herbs, and some salt. You’ll stir everything together and
then use your hands or a spatula to form the “dough” into a
circular crust. 

Once the crust is made, you’ll bake the crust in the oven for
about 15 minutes. Then, you’ll add on your appropriate toppings.
Available pizza toppings include but are not limited to: tomato
sauce, roasted garlic, caramelized onions, really any kind of
vegetable, and any kind of meat too, so you really shouldn’t feel
deprived.

For this recipe, I opted to use roasted garlic marinara sauce as
the base, and then I topped it with prosciutto and arugula.
Obviously you can add way more toppings, but I wanted to keep
things simple and show that you don’t need a ton of toppings for
this to be a flavorful recipe. 

After you decide on your toppings, you’ll add them on top of
the baked crust then place the pizza bake into the oven to bake for
an additional 10 minutes. Last, you slice it and eat up! 

Note: I also decided to whip up a quick sauce
while the pizza was in the oven, because I’m all about dips! I
made Eat the Gains whole30
buffalo sauce
and it was amazing!

I hope this whole30 pizza recipe makes its way into your life,
even if you’re not doing whole30. Trust me when I say I had low
expectations for this recipe—I mean, who actually wants to eat
cauliflower crust?—but it surprised me in the best way possible.

  • Author: Erin
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins
  • Yield: 2
  • Category: dinner
  • Method: oven
  • Cuisine: pizza
Ingredients

for the crust:

  • 2 bags cauliflower rice (approx. 6 cups)
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic herb seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg

for the pizza:

  • 3/4 cup marinara sauce
  • 5 slices prosciutto
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425° and line a large baking sheet with
    parchment paper. Line a large bowl with cheese cloth and set
    aside.
  2. Cook both bags of cauliflower rice according to the package
    instructions. Pour cauliflower rice on top of the cheese cloth and
    wait for it to cool a bit. Then, use both hands to press as much
    liquid out of the cauliflower rice as possible. If the cauliflower
    rice is too water-y, the crust will turn out mushy.
  3. Pour dried cauliflower rice into a separate bowl, then stir in
    the flour, seasoning and salt. Last, stir in the egg.
  4. Use your hands to form mixture into a ball, then transfer it
    onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and press down on it, forming
    the mixture into a circular crust. Bake crust by itself for 15
    minutes.
  5. Remove crust from the oven, then add your toppings! Start with
    the sauce, then add on your meat and veggies. Place pizza back in
    the oven and bake for 10 additional minutes.
  6. Remove pizza, wait a few minutes before slicing and
    serving.
  7. Enjoy!
Notes

You can use whatever compliant toppings you want! Feel free to
add more toppings and/or your own vegetables or meat–whatever
your heart desires.
