Healthy homemade broccoli crust pizza is gluten-free and low-carb and comes together in under 30 minutes. 
Broccoli Crust Pizza ( Paleo, Low-carb, Gluten free)It’s all about the broccoli today! If you’ve been following the blog, then you might have noticed how obsessed I am with these healthy pizza crusts. A few years ago I shared the best cauliflower crust pizza and then the popular rainbow cauliflower crust a few weeks ago.

Today I present the broccoli crust pizza. It’s very similar to the cauliflower crust pizza expect this pizza contains no gluten at all. The crust is made with riced broccoli, eggs, parmesan, and mozzarella. The broccoli can be riced in the food processor or with a cheese grater. After that, you simply combine the riced broccoli with eggs, cheese and salt + pepper until a soft dough forms then shape into a pizza crust.

One thing I want to mention is that if you have parchment paper, I highly suggest you use it so the pizza does not stick to the pan. I had parchment paper on hand when I made the pizza, but I guess drizzling oil always gets to me!

Now keep in mind, There are 2 steps to baking the broccoli crust. If will first be baked without cheese or toppings on it until the crust is crispy (about 10-12 minutes) then it will be removed from the oven, the toppings added, and baked again for another 10-12 minutes. This will insure the crust is crispy and hold up. Please see the video below for more info.

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (highly recommend) or grease with oil; set aside.

  • Process the broccoli in a food processor or shred with a cheese grater until the broccoli is the same consistency as rice.

  • Place broccoli in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and micorwave for 1-2 minute or until it is steamed. Cool for at least one minute then pour broccoli on a clean washcloth and squeeze as much liquid as you can out of the broccoli until you are left with a dry ball of broccoli.

  • In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, eggs, cheeses, and seasoning with a spoon until fully combined. Pour mixture into the pre-lined baking sheet and shape into a pizza crust, 1/2 inch thick.

    Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crust is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and add the pizza sauce and cheese. At this point feel free to add desired toppings (veggies or meat). Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. Cool for at least 5 minutes before cutting.

  1. Really tasty! I’ve made this a couple of times now. Thinking of making a few crusts & freezing them to use at a later date. Anyone had success with freezing these?

    1. As they state;

      “Nutrition facts below for pizza with sauce and cheese per serving (recipe makes 4 servings) ”

      So more like 1,000 calories in total.

  2. Skip the towel thing and spread the processed broccoli on a cookie sheet in the hot oven until dry, much better result, imho. Great crust

  3. I would love to make this recipe lactose free. Any suggestions whIch ingredient I should use instead of cow’s milk cheese?

  9. I made this a few days ago and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you for sharing.

  10. I can’t believe how good this was! One of my first attemts at trying to eat healthier and this was a home run!

  11. Made this last night and wanted to share my experience.

    I had a brain fart and completely missed step 3 in my first read through, so was patting the very wet dough out when I went back and looked and saw that I was supposed to microwave and squeeze. (I had been so excited that I thought this step wasn’t needed.)

    We plowed ahead and just did a long and slow bake in the oven to dry it out, turning it up at the end to brown and flipping it to make sure both sides had a chance to dry. Took longer but less work than squeezing out the moisture by hand.

    First bite was a little disappointing; broccoli flavour was strong and I couldn’t taste my amazing homemade marinara sauce because I didn’t want to put too much on and have it disintegrate the crust. But then we had the idea to spread more sauce on top of the melted cheese as we ate. Worked a treat and really brought out the pizza taste. My toddler ate 2 large slices, which was my goal since I’m always trying to sneak veggies into her.


  12. che vi venga un canchero che cazzo é questa merda?
    Tanto siete dei ciccioni del cazzo comunque

  13. Imagine how good this would be served Caprese style (fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil) with the crust made from Romanesco.

  14. I just made this tonight, and oh my goodness is it ever yummy!
