Out of Sight, Out of Mind

The crisper drawer in the refrigerator in our new apartment is lower than the crisper drawer in our old apartment. The old crisper drawer was nearly at eye level, while our new drawer is waaaay down at the bottom of the fridge.

I’m sad to say that the “out of sight, out of mind,” mentality has caused me to overlook some of the veggies I purchased at the grocery store last week. When I opened the crisper drawer and spotted cauliflower on the verge of death this evening, I knew it was time to use it or lose it.

Though I knew I needed to use the cauliflower, I wanted comfort food for dinner…. Something hot, satisfying and delicious.

Enter, cauliflower pizza crust. 🙂

Pre-Cooked Crust

Ryan and I both love this recipe. The first time we made it we didn’t have much faith, but it turned out oh-so-cheesy and oh-so-tasty.

The two main ingredients in the crust are cauliflower and cheese. The cauliflower really takes on the cheese flavor, so you end up with quite the cheesetastic crust.

Ready for Toppings

Ryan and I topped our respective halves with lots of veggies and goat cheese. Ryan also added MorningStar Farms Grillers Crumbles to his half.

Pizza, Pizza

I think I overdid it on the amount of cauliflower I used in the recipe this time (I didn’t measure it exactly), so my pizza slices didn’t hold up like they previously have.

Luckily it still tasted great!

Cheese + Cauliflower = Good Crust


I still have to do my taxes. 😦 Boo.

Luckily, my financial savvy fiance has agreed to help me and I’m off to start filin’.

Are your taxes done?

    First-time commenter – I just found your blog through Caitlin’s (HTP) and I added you to my Google Reader almost immediately! 🙂

  12. OMG! I made cauliflower crust too, except I made it vegan and it wasn’t very crusty. Do you think it’s the cheese that holds it together b/c I only used a 1/4 cup of vegan cheese? Love your blogs, by the way 🙂

    • yeah i definitely think the cheese is really important. i think i added too much cauliflower to the pizza last night & i believe that’s why it didn’t stay together like it normally does.

  13. ahhh! got to try that. cauliflower and cheese, best combo hands down!

  14. I am about to make cauliflower crust pizza!! Should have made it tonight, it looks soooo good!!!

  18. You know, I actually stumbled upon your blog yesterday because of this recipe. I tried it with my bf, but it’s a bit soggy, and then re-tried today to see if I could get it right. I didn’t think it possible to have hit my pizza max! Anyway, first of all, love your site! And I will be following:) Second, any ideas on a crispier crust, or what I may have done wrong.

    • i think it’s all about the cheese! i’d try adding a bit more cheese if it didn’t stay together. i think that was my problem last night!

  19. Such a creative recipe, I’ll have to try it sometime!
