Broccoli Cauliflower Pizza Crust RecipeLooking for a fun way to get your kids to eat more veggies? Make this Broccoli cauliflower pizza crust recipe with them and let them build their own pizzas. Not to mention this crust is gluten-free and broccoli is really good for you.

The vegetable best suited to protect the body from oxidative stress and increase antioxidant activity is broccoli – and it’s not because of its vitamins and minerals, but rather a phytonutrient called glucoraphanin. Broccoli contains the highest amount of glucoraphanin of all cruciferous vegetables.

My kids LOVE broccoli and cauliflower, most people don’t believe me when I tell them they get excited about it. We grew broccoli in our garden for the first time last year and it was super easy. Not to mention super fresh! This broccoli pizza recipe is listed at the bottom of the page.

You’ll want to pulse the broccoli and cauliflower in a blender until it resembles a rice-like consistency. Broccoli Cauliflower Pizza Crust 

Then it will need to be steamed for 5 minutes. Squeeze any excess liquid from the mix by placing it into a nut milk bag, which I highly recommend everyone has in their homes. I make coconut milk and juice with these bags. They are super handy. Broccoli Cauliflower Pizza Crust 

Now we are going to mix in our remaining ingredients.Broccoli Cauliflower Pizza Crust Then shape the crust into one large pizza or individual sized personal pizzas. Bake the crust for about 20 minutes or until the edges turn lightly brown.Broccoli Cauliflower Pizza Crust

  1. I can’t eat meat or pizza I love after having part of my stomach removed.Its only the size of a hard boiled egg. So I can’t wait to see if I can eat it. Can I make pizza chips with this recipe too.

    • One of my Great Uncles had half of his stomach removed so I understand how much it changes your lifestyle. I hope this works for you.

  3. I have been having a hard time digesting bread and saw this type of crust at a pizzeria and wanted to see if it was something I could make at home. Can’t wait to try it. I think I could actually eat these alone as a snack. Also thinking of using these to replace bread in subs, hoagies, grilled tilapia and so much more. Just wondering how well they freeze and and how long I can store them frozen.
