While scrolling through Pinterest as one does one afternoon I stumbled on a link to a great cooking website called Jo Cooks. On her website I found a recipe for cheesy cauliflower bread. When I saw that it was similar to making a cauliflower pizza base I was a bit disheartened. We tried this before and we were not successful. After some thought I decided to give it a try. I also needed to make something to go with the ratatouille I was making. The recipe is pretty easy and the end result is quite yummy. Next time I’ll use more cheese though…
Here’s what you need;
- 4 cups riced cauliflower about 1 large head of cauliflower
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 3 tsp oregano
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, or more for topping. I think you could even use some cheddar cheese.
What to do;
Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Prepare 2 pizza dishes or a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make sure your cauliflower is roughly chopped in florets. Add the florets to your food processor and pulse until cauliflower resembles rice.
Place the cauliflower in a microwavable container and cover with lid. Microwave for 10 minutes. Place the microwaved cauliflower in a large bowl and add the 4 eggs, 2 cups of mozzarella,oregano, garlic and salt and pepper. Mix everything together.
Separate the mixture in half and place each half onto the prepared baking sheets and shape into either a pizza crust, or a rectangular shape for the breadsticks.
Bake the crust (no topping yet) for about 25 minutes or until nice and golden. Don’t be afraid the crust is not soggy at all. Once golden, sprinkle with remaining mozzarella cheese and put back in the oven for another 5 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Slice and serve.
