Julianne Hough also launched her lifestyle blog, which gives fitness and food advice to her many fans. Hough shares many of her healthy recipes, including one for her favorite food: pizza. But this is a healthy cauliflower pizza crust. How do you make the pizza crust?

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp. of Italian herb seasoning
  • 1/8 tsp. of salt
  • 1/4 tsp. of freshly ground pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a pizza-baking sheet with parchment paper. Rinse the cauliflower, and remove the outer leaves and separate the florets with a knife. Process the cauliflower in a food processor until it looks like rice. Place on the baking sheet for 15 minutes, and then transfer to a bowl lined with a double and triple layered cheesecloth. Squeeze the liquid out as hard as you can.
  • Increase the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, and transfer the cauliflower to a mixing bowl with the cheese, eggs, herb seasoning, black pepper, and salt. Then transfer the cauliflower mixture onto the same baking sheet that your roasted the florets, and flatten with your hands until a pizza crust forms.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, and remove from the oven, then top with your favorite ingredients. Bake it again with cheese until it is golden brown.
