This chicken vegetable pizza is made with a cauliflower crust so it’s gluten free as well as low carb and delicious!
Did you know it’s National Pizza Month? This is a food that I feel is worthy of having a whole month dedicated to it. And while I enjoy all types of pizza, I especially love my low carb versions such as this chicken vegetable pizza. The crust is made cauliflower and cheese and it’s topped with chicken and an assortment of vegetables as well as … more cheese!
We are celebrating Pizza at Sunday Supper this week so I knew I wanted to make some cauliflower crust pizza. I made a similar recipe awhile ago (vegetable cauliflower rounds) which used the cauliflower crust to make an appetizer. It was very tasty and I learned I can put almost anything on this cauliflower base and it would taste good.
To make the crust, cook some cauliflower rice in the microwave for about 10 minutes. When it’s cooled you add egg and mozzarella cheese and form it into a pizza shell. I cooked mine on a silicone mat but you can use parchment paper too. However make sure to spray it with cooking oil first. Bake for about 25 minutes.
While it’s cooking, you want to saute some of the vegetables like the peppers, mushrooms and some of the spinach. When they are cooked, add the rest of the spinach so it’s wilted and the cooked chicken. Spoon over your crust evenly and then add the raw onions. I like my onions cut thin and a little crunchy. You can omit them if that’s not your thing. Sprinkle some Asiago cheese and back in the oven for about 5 more minutes to melt the cheese.

My husband really liked this and it’s great that we can have a gluten free and low carb pizza dinner every once in awhile. I also made another pizza with chicken and a pepper spread (Instagram pic) I recently bought in a Middle Eastern store in downtown Pittsburgh. It was tasty too.
