Hello beauties! I’m a pizza lover, but tbh it makes my stomach feel pretty bad from eating it. I know, it’s a curse. I’m just really sensitive to dairy and bready gluten-y things. This is why I made the cruciferous crust. It’s basically like eating veggies but in crust form. It’s also way less basic than the cauliflower crust. Let’s be real. I played around with a bunch of those cauliflower crust recipes and through trial and error, I discovered how to make a successful crust for any pizza toppings your heart desires. It’s also amazing because when you combine cauliflower and broccoli, you are getting more of a variety of vitamins. If you don’t want to spend your life bloated from insensitivities but still have raging pizza cravings than this recipe is for you. If you love cheese but can’t have it because you are also sensitive, I strongly recommend Violife Cheese. It’s incredible.
What are the benefits of cruciferous vegetables?
Cruciferous vegetables are rich in vitamins and minerals. They are high in fiber and a great source of antioxidants. Cauliflower contains vitamin C and vitamin K and broccoli does as well. There are more vegetables that are cruciferous than broccoli and cauliflower as well. They are mostly low calorie and rich in folate.Print
low calorie cruciferous crust made from broccoli and cauliflower. vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, mean and green.
- Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Cook Time: 40 minutes
- Total Time: 60 minutes
- Yield: 2 pizza crusts 1x
- 4 cups of broccoli florets (or from 2 broccoli bouquets lol), chopped with stems removed
- 1/2 cauliflower head, chopped with stems removed
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast
- preheat oven to 425 degrees. roughly chop broccoli and cauliflower and add to the blender. blend until it’s very little tiny pieces.
- add mixture into a nut milk bag or cheese cloth. squeeze out all the juice and set aside.
- in another bowl whisk the eggs and nutritional yeast.
- add in broccoli/cauliflower mixture and stir.
- add parchment onto a baking sheet and put mixture onto the tray in a circle/dome shape. push it down and shape it with your hands into a thin pizza crust shape.
- bake for 30 minutes and take out to add toppings and then bake for another 10 minutes.
blending the dry broccoli and cauliflower can be the most annoying part but less annoying when you’ve chopped it small. if your blender gets stuck create air pockets and stop blending to do this, then resume. my toppings include: pesto, violife mozzarella cheese, sautéed zucchini, basil, arugula, and parsley.

I hope you enjoyed this fabulous recipe. I love being able to have cravings but not making my body pay for it afterwards. It’s also just a great way to get extra greens and you can add literally any topping you want. If you liked the cruciferous crust, you might like my plant sauce too. 🍃❤️🥰
