Cauliflower Breadsticks! Was it GOOD???
Confession time. I have to admit to you that I am a Pinterest pinning fool. Oh, don't give me that stare, if you are on Pinterest, you need to confess too! I pin so many delicious looking food projects and I try just a few. It really is so much easier to pin that picture to a board than to actually make the dish! BUT, tonight I hit jackpot on this recipe for my family. The recipe is actually called "Basil Cauliflower Pizza". I have seen many variations of this concept, but I just made the crust, cut it into to strips and viola'.....we have cheesy breadsticks. I even fooled the kiddo! I did tell her that it was cauliflower after she had 3 strips. How can you pass up the look on their face when they hear the truth? I like for her to know that she ate something healthy and liked it, but only after I fooled her. It is not a sturdy, crispy "crust" but once it cools a few minutes, it could absolutely be a base for that creative pizza that you are dying to create. It is more of a fork and knife dish than a traditional pick up pizza crust, so just be aware of the difference. I gives this a family friendly"A". Pick up a head of cauliflower on your next grocery trip. You will be glad you tried this one! Cauliflower Pizza Pinterest pin = Excellent.
Below are the pictures of mine that I made tonight. (I didn't have basil on hand and I also used a combo of cheeses I had on hand.)
