Grain Free Cauliflower Crust Pizza: Dr. Gorman Bonus Pick.
I tried this recipe for cauliflower crust the other night, and was skeptical about how the texture and taste would be. Being anxious to taste it, I tried it before it had cooled off long enough and set. My first impression was that it was tasty, but not really pizza. Then when I went back for my second piece, my opinion changed quickly. If you are patient and give this 4-5 minutes to cool, you will be quite pleased!
