If you enjoyed my cauliflower sticks, then you would love this pizza. Making a flatbread out of cauliflower was a first for me and it turned out to be not bad actually. As you can probably imagine, the idea of making a cauliflower flatbread came from my wife because she has all these weird visions about recipes that people would love in this part of the world. Personally, I don’t care that much for anything besides steaks, potatoes and sandwiches, but I like to keep an open mind.
Making a bunch of cheese sticks with cauliflower instead of bread is not such a big stretch, they were actually good, but using it on a pizza, I definitely thought it was a sacrilege, that something will come out from somewhere to smite me. It didn’t happen obviously and since “open minded” is my middle name, here we are with another pizza recipe that really surprised me.
As you all know, cauliflower has a specific scent when cooked so if you get past that, once your pizza is ready, you won’t even feel that it doesn’t involve bread. Honestly, it was really good and if you are a health nut then this is definitely for you. If not, then head down to my spicy Italian and enjoy!
