  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 pound fresh, not frozen, broccoli rice (see notes)
  • 1/2 pound fresh, not frozen, cauliflower rice (see notes)
  • ½ cup finely grated cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup chickpea flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 large scallions, or 4 small, finely chopped (white and light green parts)
  • 1 clove minced garlic or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a 12-inch pizza pan (see notes) with a 12-inch circle of parchment paper. Spray with olive oil cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl combine the broccoli and cauliflower along with the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  • Press the mixture into the pizza pan in one even layer (use a piece of plastic wrap to prevent sticking) and bake on the bottom rack of the oven for 20 minutes or until just starting to turn golden brown around the edges.
  • Run a parking knife around the edge of the crust several times to loosen it from the pan.
  • Lightly spray a 14-inch round pizza tray lightly with olive oil cooking spray and place it on top of the pizza pan. Invert the pan so the crust falls onto the pizza tray with the bottom facing up. Peel off the parchment paper.
  • Return to the oven (on the pizza tray) for another 20 minutes.
  • Layer on toppings of your choice and return to the oven for another 5-7 minutes until toppings are melted and/or heated through. Slice and serve.


1. To make broccoli and cauliflower rice, add the raw stems and florets to a food processor and whir them up until they’re the size of grains of rice.
2. If you don't own a 12-inch pizza pan you can substitute two 8 or 9-inch cake pans and use a standard size half sheet baking pan in lieu of the 14-inch pizza tray.
