    My daughter (geegeeland) introduced me to this. Delicious and great for those of us watching carbs. I like to use it plan as bread, with no toppings. I toast leftover pieces until crisp and use as crackers. - 9/18/12

    I have a dairy sensitivity and can't eat cheese so omitted that and used egg white instead of a whole egg, plus loads of garlic!! It was incredible!!!! I made it for my friends last night and I seriously could have had twice the amount, everyone raved, even sans cheese. Used fresh instead of frozen. - 5/6/12

    If you buy a head of cauliflower , separate the florets and either put in food processor, or grate it, it won't be so moist, and taste delicious, even the second day. - 2/13/12

    It's 82 MG not % of cholesterol... which out of 300 per day is not bad at all for a meal. And of course low carbers know that dietary cholesterol is not a measure of lipid cholesterol :)

    I had this and thought it was completely amazing. I also used raw so I didn't have to worry about draining - 9/20/11

    I used the version from the Recipegirl.com site, which calls for 2+ cups of cauliflower (egg & cheese the same, but I used fat-free cheddar & a Mexican blend). My herbs were thyme & oregano. The crust baked to perfection & I broiled tomatoes & yellow peppers on top. YUM! - 4/28/12

    I thought this was great, as long as you weren't really expecting it to taste like pizza! An excellent alternative to the regular crust! I used reduced fat cheese to lower the fat & cals. - 2/24/10

    I have made a version of this before (using mozzarella instead of cheddar) and I love it. I have also formed them into "breadsticks" and generously applied garlic! - 8/22/13

    I pre-cook the cauliflower for 6 minutes in the microwave first. I also use mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar and omit the fennel. I always pre-cook my toppings as well. We love this recipe! - 6/26/13

    I agree with Geminisue..why use frozen when you can buy a whole head of fresh cauliflower? It will make twice as much, it's half the price, fresh, with no excess water. I use my food processor with the grate blade. Takes literally all of 2 minutes and voila! - 12/12/12

    I made this tonight & it turned out to be AMAZING! Instead of buying frozen cauliflower, I used the florets from 1 whole head of fresh cauliflower after mincing it up in the blender. I also substituted shredded parmesan cheese for 3/4 of the cheddar cheese. Makes a whole LG pizza (4x's recipe). - 7/9/12

    This worked well for me: 2 cups raw cauliflower (1/2 large head) remove stems. Chopped small in food processor, dried out in cracked-open toaster oven @ 250. 1 cup of parmesan & Romano fancy shredded, could use less. 1 egg and 1 egg white. Oven @ 350 X 25 min, 10 other side. Precooked toppings. Yum! - 3/5/13

    I agree with the others' comments - this is a very clever way to eat pizza! I would also agree that it would be ideal to EITHER cook it on a pizza stone, OR flip it halfway through cooking. The reason is that the bottom gets crispier than the top. I'm going to try to mix it with ground beef next! - 1/31/13

    I made this tonight with supper but never used it as a pizza crust - had it with grilled chicken breast. I also added 1.5 cups cauliflower instead of 1 cup and I used a medium egg. I never used fennel. Either way myself and my husband really enjoyed this. I highly recommend this item! - 1/16/12

    This was absolutely incredible! I was a little skeptical but it was delicious! I used half of a fresh cauliflower head, 2 eggs, and 3/4 cups cheese. It made one regular size 'pizza'. I cooked it for close to 25 minutes to get it extra crispy. I added celery salt and garlic power as well. - 1/24/13

    Absolutely amazing. Used fresh (cause I didn't have any frozen on hand) and it was great!!! Can't wait to make it again. Even my room mate (who hates cauliflower, and isn't a low-carber) loved it. Can't wait to make it again! - 12/8/12

    I riced fresh cauliflower and lightly roasted it. I think this may have helped prevent mushiness. It was easy to make and delicious to eat. I SO appreciate having a Low Carb recipe! - 1/30/11

  • The herbs make this taste awful, I will not bother with this again. Better just have thin crust real crust with veggies on it!! - 2/16/14
