1 pizza


  • 5 cups cauliflower florets

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

  • ¼ cup shredded carrot

  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups shredded cooked chicken

  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce, such as Frank's RedHot, divided

  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

  • ¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place cauliflower and garlic in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on High for 3 minutes. Let cool slightly. Stir in eggs, mozzarella, carrot, 2 tablespoons chives and salt. Spread the mixture into a 12-inch circle, 1/4 inch thick, on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake the cauliflower crust until brown and crispy around the edges, 35 to 40 minutes.

  4. Combine chicken, 1 tablespoon hot sauce, vinegar and cayenne in a small bowl. Remove the crust from the oven and top with the chicken and blue cheese. Return to the oven and bake until the chicken is warm and the cheese is starting to melt, about 5 minutes more. Top with celery and the remaining 1 tablespoon each chives and hot sauce.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
