These Cauliflower Breadsticks are a low carb, gluten free alternative to regular bread sticks. This easy recipe can even be used as a pizza crust.
Here I go again with a cauliflower recipe for you to try. I’ve mentioned that I have had a little fixation with it since making Cauliflower Rice Pilaf for the first time.
I have been wanting to try making cauliflower bread sticks (or cheese bread) for a while and this recipe is so simple. It’s a great way to get a little more nutrition from a vegetable snuck into meals too!
All you have to do is pulse chopped cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles rice. (if you don’t have a food processor, you can use a hand grater).
Then cook it for a few minutes in the microwave, squeeze excess water out using a cheesecloth, then mix in the other few ingredients (garlic powder, oregano, eggs and cheese) and bake it in the oven.
Serve it with some of this homemade marinara sauce for dipping if you’d like. It’s fabulous! We, unfortunately, scarfed it down right out of the oven, to be honest.
A big bonus is that you can use this as a healthy option for pizza crust too. However, it is recommended to flip it over halfway through baking for a pizza crust so it’s more crispy before adding the pizza toppings.
How to Make Cauliflower Breadsticks
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
Cut cauliflower head into smaller pieces and pulse in a food processor. You want it to resemble rice.
Place in a microwave-safe bowl, cover, and microwave for 10 minutes.
Add all other ingredients to a large bowl and blend well.
Add cooked cauliflower to other mixed ingredients and mix well.
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
Divide the cauliflower mixture in half and spread the baking sheets. I make mine into a rectangle shape. You want it to be thin!
Bake at 425 degrees F for 25 minutes.
If you’d like it a little extra cheesy, sprinkle with additional cheese and bake again until the cheese is melted.
You can use frozen cauliflower that is so widely available now. The key is to get as much of the water out of the cauliflower as possible. You can even use a nut bag or cheesecloth to make this step easier.
You can also bake the cauliflower in the oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F.
As mentioned above, be sure to squeeze all the water out of the cauliflower. Up to a cup of liquid is expected.

one of the best recipes I’ve had in a Looooong time ! Thanks !
I’m so glad you loved it too!
If I use frozen cauliflower rice, do I still cook it then drain it?
Yes you do. 🙂 Be sure to get as much water out as possible so it’s not soggy.
3 eggs is WAY too much. It was basically a thin frittata, definitely not breadstick-like.
This is sooo good! The flavor was really good, and I liked the bready texture. I will probably use more garlic next time because I love things super garlicky.
I can’t wait to try this. Loving The recipe
We don’t care too much to use the microwave….what is the cooking alternative for the cauliflower?
You can cook on the stovetop as well. I would cook it covered until soft.
Made it! Wow this is delicious. Since there are only two of us how long and how to store leftovers?
Looks amazing. l want to eat that
Your recipes always look so good..Thank you!

I have an odd question—-I do not like Cheese (lol!!)……and was wondering if these can be made without Cheese? I would guess probably not, as the cheese would probably be used to bind things together…………but, thought I would put this question out there! I will make them regardless, though……..~~~
Yes! I have seen them without cheese. The eggs would keep it together. If you do make them without, please let me know how they turn out. 🙂
great recipe! Is there nutritional info available?
