Hi Cleo,

I made this tonight and it was delicious! Thanks so much! I had 1/4 of the pizza , along with some crockpot chicken and I was quite satisfied! I have leftovers for lunch for the rest of the week and my coworkers will be surprised when I show it to them!

It is the best pizza substitution I have ever tried (and I've been lo-carbing for years).... It's a keeper!!!! I'll make a bunch of mini's this weekend to pop in the freezer for pizza anytime!!!

Better yet - finally cold pizza for breakfast that I could eat with my hands!!!!!! Breakfast doen't get any better than with COLD PIZZA!!!

You could make a tahini-based sauce and put diced tomatoes and feta cheese on it...

PS - Just had 2 small pieces of "pizza" for breakfast. I'm full and happy!

I believe that only relates to liquid. However, I could be wrong...won't be the first time. I know Alton Brown prefers to cook according to weight. He says it's more accurate.

I used a scientific scale to weigh the foods while I cooked, but I am willing to stand corrected if someone else has other numerical values. I don't pack food down, so that could account for differences in weights?

I've been just guesstimating it since The bag has 2 cups I just use about half. Oh man, if it comes out good with only half of that I have enough to make another one!!!!!! Thanks emeraldskye!

Usually the 8 oz bags of shredded mozzerella say there are 2 cups in them. I know the old adage is a pint to a pound, but I think the bag measurements are more accurate in this case. 1 cup is 4 oz of shredded cheese.

Cool! I know I had a hard time finding three bags of cauliflower in one store. I brought them all home and then was too tired to cook! LOL The pizza keeps well, so it's just as good the next day!

My kids said the same thing, and then they ate all of my pizza. The good thing is it's pretty quick to make more. Making a real dough with yeast is a lot more time and effort. This is just nuking cauli in the microwave, shredding it (or processing it) and then mixing it with the egg and cheese. It has to be easy, or I couldn't make it.

I'm not technical. LOL

I've made many, many LC pizza crusts/dishes. I made this tonight and it was sensational. Very, very good and I could easily pick it up with my hands. This is a keeper.

Hey there, Carol:

Haven't tried the pizza with the freeze-dried cauli yet because I have been out of town while this thread has been developing, but I'm definitely gonna give it a whirl when I get back. I'm considering that the freeze-dried might make an even crispier crust than the fresh or frozen because I can control the moisture level.

Yes, the Emergency Essentials site does have some interesting stuff for us low carbers, including peanut powder/flour. I believe that it was KevinPA who directed me to this site a while back. I find that the freeze-dried cauliflower "pearls" as they call them are the closest thing to popcorn in consistency and crunch that I have found -- just grab a handful from the can and sprinkle with your favorite popcorn seasoning or butter and you're all primed for some comforting repetitive hand-to-mouth snacking

My DH thanks you! I made the pizza today and he loved it! So did I! He said this is definitely a keeper. I like that we got pizza without the heavy feeling in the tummy after eating it!

The true taste test will be tonight when DS tries it. He hates cauliflower and I told him I'd try it first and tell him the truth. I definitely think that if he can get beyond the thought of cauliflower, he will love it!

I made it with fresh cauliflower that I steamed in the microwave and then chopped fine using a pastry blender. It chops really fast that way.

Do you mind if I ask you how you steamed it in the microwave? Did you weigh/measure it before you cooked it?

I just made it! OMG! It's good!!

Kroger has the 16 oz bags of cauliflower for $1 this week!!

I did make my crust too thin, though and it's very hard to pick up.
AND be sure to spray the sides of the pan too - or it sticks. Learned that the hard way.

I can't wait to try this again!
