I just cut it up into small pieces, put in a glass bowl with about 2T water and cover it. Nuke for about 5 minutes, stir and nuke for 5 more minutes. Then I just cut it into smaller pieces using a hand pastry blender.

OMG!!! DELISH!!!

Does not taste like cauliflower.

My crust was a little soggy in the middle so I had to use a fork...I don't think I squeezed enough water out of the cauliflower before I chopped it fine. I added a little grated parmesan cheese to the crust mixture and I think it needs a little salt....WILL make this again. Every Friday is pizza night in our house so now I can have it too.

Has anyone ever tried making this on a pizza stone? With regular pizza, the stone is the key to a great crust. Do you think adding flax meal to make it firmer would work? have not tried flax meal yet, not sure if it would change the taste....does it have a taste?

My first attempt was great...I ate the whole thing myself

1 cup does equal 8 fluid ounces. But 1 cup of milk does not weigh the same (in ounces) as 1 cup of grated cheese. I hope I'm being clear.

So Paula, I would go by Cleo's weight measurement that she did on her scale, and I'm assuming you're going to have to convert it to grams? Every time I see an English cooking show they give all the amounts in grams.

BTW I have a cheapo scale that measures in ounces and grams. I lurve it! Because strangely enough the nutrition labels always say how many grams per serving. Like Americans know what a gram is. Pfffffft!

I did use soy cheese in mine - I think someone asked about that a few pages ago.
It worked great!

I was willing to calculate grams as well, but since she said no, I was lazy and didn't.

Soy cheese worked?! That is great! I can let my SIL know. She has an aversion to dairy. Woohoo! That is exciting!

I liked the pizza, I just wished I cooked it a little longer to make the crust crispier. I thought I would taste the cauliflower but not too much.
I double the recipe and it fit in my 16 inch pan perfectly.
I'll definately make it again.

I can only eat two pieces in a sitting. It is really filling! And I feel so satisfied I don't want to eat more. I want it to last. I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds it filling!

I'm glad you guys like the pizza. My friend called me when she heard I was making cupcakes for my daughter and they asked if they were made from cauliflower... O

The 10" pizza I cut into 6 pieces. If I double the batch, I cut it into 8. How about you?

Chocolate Cupcakes with Avocado and Cauliflower
Recipe from “Deceptively Delicious,” Harper Collins Publishers, 2007.

Batter:

Nonstick cooking spray

1 cup avocado purée

11⁄2 cups sugar

1 cup nonfat (skim) milk

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1⁄2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

2 large egg whites

2 cups all-purpose flour

1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Frosting:

1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese

1⁄2 cup confectioners’ sugar

1⁄4 cup cauliflower purée

2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

1⁄8 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.

In a large mixing bowl of an electric mixer, beat the avocado purée, sugar, milk, vanilla and vinegar until smooth. Beat in the egg whites one at a time, just until incorporated. Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, and mix until smooth.

Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Bake until the tops of the cupcakes are lightly browned and spring back to the touch, 15 to 20 minutes. Turn out onto a rack to cool completely before frosting them.

For the frosting, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, cauliflower purée, vanilla and salt until smooth. Spread over the cooled cupcakes. Store the cupcakes in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days or freeze up to 1 month.

Makes 12 cupcakes.

Gulp!
I doubled the recipe and made it in a 12 inch. I thought it was a 16".
But I cut it in 4 slices and ate. . . .2 pieces!

LOL! Determined-- Well the crust is super-thin, so it can't do much damage! The good news is you didn't have cravings and didn't eat the whole thing! You're cool.


Barb-- Holy CRAP. There is such a thing?! LOLOL!!

Exactly!! That's good thing. Now I made my husband a frozen pizza and just added toppings to it. If I was eating that, I would have eaten more of it because I would be craving big time. But with the cauliflower, it was very satisfying to me.

That's what surprised me, too. Even the cauliflower lasagna is so filling, I couldn't eat much. In a way it's a blessing, and in a way, you're wanting to eat more but you feel satisfied. I used to be able to eat a lot of regular lasagna in a sitting... that floury paste, whether it's in noodles or crust must really in some way stimulate excess appetite?

I think so too!

I'm trying the lasagne next. I really like lasagne but it's too heavy on the stomach. With the caulisagne it won't weigh heavy on the stomach like the other.
