Man, these were GOOD!
So good, in fact, that they disappeared before I could take a picture? Sigh, guess I'll just have to make them again... (which I did today!)

These Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks were a delightful nibble as we opened our Christmas presents. I doubled the recipe to make a 14” round "pizza", but followed the directions as presented – with one exception. Due to my timing, I split it into a 2 part effort.

As I didn't get home from work on Christmas Eve until after 8pm, I decided to do the 'ricing' and steaming that night, then the final assembly and bake before I left the next day, so it would still be at least warm. I actually think this helped the drying process – they weren't kidding about the amount of water that comes out! After wringing all I could, I placed the still towel-wrapped mass back into the pan I'd used to steam, and let it sit overnight.

Preheating the oven leaving that pan on top finished it to what I'd consider perfection – an almost flour like consistency! Stir in your herbs, and your whisked egg, blend in your cheese... it was extremely easy to mold into a nice, even, perfectly round “crust”. BTW, there ARE lots of recipes out there that suggest using cauliflower instead of dough – I now consider these 'must tries' – honestly, it was that good!

It finished the way you'd expect a perfect pizza crust – crisp on the outside, still tender to chew... I served with warmed marinara sauce, but it was just as enjoyable on its own – I might have used a tad more seasoning than was asked for, but my, I don't regret it.

With my crew of eclectic eaters, not a one had anything bad to say, rather, there were praises, and Mom asked to keep the meager leftovers (left only because dinner was ready to be served {tee hee}).

Gluten and carb free, this is a good option for those concerned about such things, and as I said, enjoyable for all. You've GOT to try this!
