Cheesy Cauliflower Flatbread

You’ve probably heard carb-lovers diss cauliflower crust pizza and flatbread. DON’T LISTEN TO THEM. I’m a carb lover. Seriously. Bread, pizza, pastries, pasta. I love them so much I could cry. Oh, if only they didn’t make me so fat and my tummy so unhappy. What I’m saying is, I love pizza. And bread. But I also love this ‘bread’. It really is delicious and so nice that it’s healthy and not heavy on the stomach.

This recipe is a lot easier than others that I’ve tried, even the other one that I have posted. You’ll start off by grating it like you see here. No need for a food processor to rice it- this works perfectly!

The next step in most recipes is to microwave (eck) the cauliflower and then squeeeeeeeze out as much water as you can with a tea towel. I LOVE leaving that step out. Heat a cast iron pan and sauté the cauliflower for a few minutes until it starts to brown a tad. This is getting rid of that water that we don’t want sticking around to make our bread soggy.

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and then use a fork to spread/flatten it into a nice, thin layer. You can do a square or circle- doesn’t matter.  Bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees and viola- yumminess.

Eat it on it’s own, dip it in a sauce, or use it as a pizza crust. We’ve done all three and this is a serious favorite at my house. Quick, easy, and delicious.
