Yeah, my wife has jumped on the cauliflower bandwagon, and, well, frankly, NO.

The best two things for cauliflower are either roasted in oven with olive oil and a touch of smoked paprika, or just use it plain as a scoop for good dip.

Making it into something it ain't is just a dissapointment waiting to happen.

Cauliflower au gratin isn't bad either... but really... as a pizza crust... why ruin perfection? Just NO.

Wait. Is it used to make the crust or as a topping?

I quite like it with a bit of nutmeg and a cheese sauce, cauliflower soup can be nice too. I don't like as a rice alternative in most rice dishes and in general agree that you shouldn't try to make into something it isn't, but as a risotto, with mushrooms for example, it works for me. It's not a risotto of course, but it's a nice way to eat cauliflower.

Pizza? No, can't imagine that working.

We homemade a cauliflower crust pizza and it was damned good. Did zucchini as well, it was also good. It doesn't come out as a pick up and eat a slice type thing IME.

Some people eat with their rigid notions and prejudices, not with their taste buds.

The words cauliflower and pizza should never be in the same sentence let alone the same plate. I have nothing against a good roasted cauliflower, gratin, or aloo gobi, but trying to make cauliflower into something it isn't, well, just ain't right. There should be a law to punish these types of crimes against humanity.

funny, I just dropped a comment over here with my favorite recipe from a DVD Extras special feature, Aloo Gobi is my 2nd favorite (from the extras of Bend it Like Beckham -- can't see to find that recipe copied onto utub tho)

This is my favorite cauliflower prep.

I make this about 3x/month.
edit, incorrect, about 5x/month.

The two best things for cauliflower are leaving it in the ground, and failing that giving it to someone else to eat.

If you can't pick it up, and eat a slice, is it pizza?

Dollar store 'cheese' usually doesn't really melt either but a dollar store pizza crust is a good base for your Sunday sports pizza.

I tried the cauliflower crust at Pieology. It was good to eat but you wouldn’t mistake it for bread.

I used to think that until I cooked the recipe I posted above. To paraphrase a comment:
" YOU CANNOT STOP EATING BECAUSE THEY ARE LIKE VEGGIE CRACK. "

Pizza is like an omelette: it can support whatever toppings or ingredients you love most.

Which is why you need to wait for it to solidify.

Cauliflower is a good thing!

Lightly drizzled in olive oil with a dusting of smoked paprika and then roasted... delicious!
I've tried the 30% cauliflower pizza crust... meh.
Leave pizza alone!!!!

Nope.

What did pizza ever do to be treated that badly?

Cauliflower period is terrible, so why would putting it on a pizza make it any better?
