Step by step (with pictures) recipe showing you how to create paleo pizza cups with a cauliflower crust.

Paleo pizza isn’t a new thing. In fact, we sometimes enjoy meat crust pizza weekly because Michael will throw down on some pizza.

One day he will go to a friend’s house and realize all of the lies I spun surrounding food. *Cue the dramatic music.*

“You lied to me my whole life, Mom!”
“Sweetheart, I only did it because I love and care about your health.”
“I hate you!”

Paleo pizza bowl toppings

Good Cook saved the day when they sent me this pan. I swear, the best part about paleo pizza bowls is the ability to customize each one. We usually have a pizza conflict when the family gets together because we all like something different. For example- my main requirement is bacon but my sister doesn’t eat the majestic strips of deliciousness. She doesn’t eat bacon! BA-CON!

I about had a heart attack when I found out.

Ingredients for the cauliflower crust portion of paleo pizza cups.


  • 2 Heads of cauliflower
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Basil
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Cooking note- I find it easier to work with 1 head of cauliflower at a time.

  • Start making the cauliflower crust by pulsing pieces of cauliflower in a food processor until the pieces are tiny and rice like. (Each head of cauliflower yields about 3 cups of rice.)
  • Pop your rice into the microwave for 8 minutes so it can cook a bit before you put everything together.
Press the excess moisture out of the cauliflower before mixing in the rest of the cauliflower crust ingredients for your paleo pizza cups.
  • Once the cauliflower has cooled down, place it in between paper towels (Or some other official kitchen tool that I don’t own.) and press out as much moisture as possible. Trust me when I say PRESS. And press. And then press some more. And when you think you are done… press some more.
  • I prefer to mix the ingredients together with a whisk. Why? I have no idea.
Fill a Bake-a-Bowl pan with cauliflower crust for the base of your paleo pizza cups.
  • It took about 5 scoops to fill each Bake-A-Bowl compartment.
  • I baked the bowls at 350 for 25 minutes, pulled them out and filled with ingredients, and then popped them back in for 10 minutes.

Cooking note- There is a fill line for those of you who plan on using a batter instead of something that doesn’t rise, like cauliflower.

Paleo pizza cups allow your guests to build a cauliflower pizza with their favorite paleo pizza toppings.
  • Let the bowls cool down to the point of being able to touch them and serve.
