Oh I saw this done on another forum I must find it for you , looks like a great idea . I have seen on other forums that some people blitz fresh Cauli in a food processor or you could chop it finely, now would it work from fresh then as I imagine chopped fine it would cook through ok ?

The recipes I have seen recommend using a cheese grater if you don't have a food processor. Also, when cooking the cauliflower until it's translucent (in a non-stick pan or microwave) don't add any oil or any other type of moisture.

it seems to me that since the cauliflower is replacing flour in the recipe, you'd need to cook it well, macerate it finely in some way (such as the aforementioned ricing or grating/processing) then spread it put and blot with a paper towel and allow it to nearly dry out to be flour-like; maybe a little more granular.

this idea intrigues me, chop. thanks for posting it. i may have to try it soon for fun experimenting with my boy, and it would please dw since it's a healthy alternative.

and what doesn't taste good with sauce and cheese on it, anyway.

Right BT. The taste was good. Let me know if you get the chance to experiment before I do.

I'm going to try this to be the garlic "bread" to go with tonight's lasagne (I am also making a wholewheat baquette as the back up--plan B). I plan on cooking the rounds of cauliflower on my CI griddle.

You Won't Believe it's Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

You still have to squeeze the liquid out of the cauliflower and flipping the "pizza" dough helps. It still isn't pizza dough, but I liked it!
