It is super-easy to make this into smaller portions. Freeing would be fine after baking initially!

You could eat the whole thing, but you'd want to watch your cheese portions if you're in induction. It's pretty filling.

Turkey pepperoni would be great! Or even sausage. I just bought some chorizo I plan to cook and add (and green pepper)...

I wonder what would happen if one were to add pork rinds to the mix?

Hmmmm...*stroking my chin hairs*

I think you'd end up with a hugely-fattening pizza crust that had so much sodium you'd float away... But it could be interesting.

Jersey-- oh no! Not me! I'm a writer, but notsomuch with the cooking. I just get lucky in the kitchen from time to time. Thank you for the very fine compliment, however!

lil-- definitely! You don't need the fennel. I just really like fennel, and it makes the dough more savory.

You could even technically make bread sticks out of these if you leave off the toppings. Or a light thin-bread to enjoy with pestos and other accouterments.

Thin-sliced tomatoes, pesto, fresh spinach leaves... you could have some delicious options here!

Kudos to you, Cleo! I made the "crust" (actually doubled the recipe) and it looks and smells delicious! I did make some small changes to the recipe, but I wanted to thank you for the wonderful idea!

Wow! That looks divine! I may have to make this. Usually we just make pizza toppings on stoneware plates. Mainly because I haven't found a crust I like. This looks good, though. Gotta get some cauliflower and mozzarella in the house, though!

You're probably right! I think I might have a bit of an obsession with pork rinds ever since you introduced me to the joys of breading with them!

I'll try it your way first - pinky swear!

My favorite pizza to make is pesto, mozzarella and halved cherry tomatoes. But first, you roast a head of garlic, squeeze out the paste and spread it on the dough. YUM!

I have a ton of food in the house so probably won't get around to trying this for a week or so. But I look forward to giving it a try WITHOUT telling DH what's in it. He hates the very idea of cauliflower and won't try it mashed, roasted or anything else.

I have a quick question

I made this tonight but my crust mixture was very wet. I doubled the recipe, cooked it 20 minutes and it was dark on the edges like yours in the picture but the middle was wet and didn't really firm up. It had a fabulous taste but, like I said, it was mushy in the middle.

I'm wondering if your crust mixture before baking is on the wet side? Like, when I was pressing it in the pan, liquid was coming to the top.

If this isn't how it's supposed to be then it was my cheese. The shredded mozzarella felt a bit damp to me.

Those look awesome, Cleo! I burned through my cauliflower last week, but I'll definitely be picking up some more soon! Kudos!

Wildflower-- mine isn't liquidy at all. I wonder if maybe the cauliflower didn't get drained enough post cooking' If you find it too soft in the center, run a spatula around the edges, loosen the crust after baking at 450 and flip the crust over. That should help.

hippie-- I had to hit two stores to find cauliflower. My son said to me, "Someone found out about your recipe, mom."

LOL!!!

Well, there are quite a few lcf from Colorado...lol

I had a bunch, too! I had bought a bunch of frozen broccoli and cauliflower on sale a couple of weeks ago. Ate a lot of loaded veggies the last few weeks! Now I'm wishing I'd shown a little restraint!

So I made it! I doubled the recipe and made 4 minis. They felt flimsy but held up pretty well. Best of all it tasted good! Pretty sure I'll be making this often!

Thanks! I think it might be my cheese. It was pre-shredded and it felt damp in the bag. Plus, I think I had it too thick in the middle. The outer parts were thinner and they came out much better. It still tasted fabulous - I think I just need to spread it thinner and use part skim mozzarella since it's drier.

Emerald-- have you gotten in?

I made a cauliflower lasagna last night.

Only 222 calories and 5.5 carbs for 1/6 of an entire recipe! And MAN, is it good.

Wildflower-- I think if you accidentally made it more thick in the middle, that would have done it! I make a lot of pizza from scratch, so I'm always paranoid and beef up the edges naturally because I'm afraid they will burn otherwise. I use my hands, and they help gauge the amount of dough.

I'm putting the recipe together right now. I ran the ****** totals using greater than I actually am using, so I don't see those numbers changing much. The sauce can be a home made marinara, a lower-carb marinara (check labels) or an alfredo.

I'll have a recipe by the end of the day! Sorry for the wait. I'm homeschooling and then have to run some errands.
