Cheesy Cauliflower Dippers

Cheesy Cauliflower Dippers

A fun Tuesday afternoon spent with the kids!!  We love being in the kitchen and I love creating these memories together.  Our kids LOVE pizza!!  I’m guessing they are not alone on this however finding a kid friendly version that is easy to eat, healthy, and they enjoy is a win in our house.  I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as our kids do. 

1 medium head cauliflower
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded, divided in half
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon Garlic salt
Cheesy Cauliflower Dippers


To "rice" the Cauliflower: Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater). Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself. One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it lightly with cooking spray. Spoon the cauliflower mixture onto the pan and use your hands to form it into a 8 1/2 x 11 inch rectangle. Place in the oven for 30 minutes, or even longer until the crust is golden brown and firm. Remove the crust from the oven and top the crust with remaining mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 7-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.  Cut into “breadsticks” and serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.  Makes about 10 breadsticks.  This recipe could easily be doubled
