Around 15 years ago, before you could really order from the computer, I ordered a friend a cookbook from the Junior League of Rochester, NY that she wanted. I got myself another of their cookbooks through Barnes and Noble.  

This recipe was in one of the books and outstanding!  I have read about so many of you being cauliflower fans, I thought I'd share it!

I love that it frees up your stove!  Enjoy!  (My Foods students loved this one during the Vegetable Lab and often made it again when we got to meals.


Cauliflower Curry


1 lg cauliflower

2 Tbsp water

Pour the water over and microwave covered 7 minutes.

     Thanks for the GREAT recipe!  I am going to share it with some friends on another recipe forum.

     I have been doing a lot with cauliflower recently.  I put it into the food processor and shred it into small pieces--a little coarser than cornmeal--and put it into freezer bags.  I can make cauliflower "mashed potatoes,"  substitute part of the ground beef in recipes, or use it to replace bread crumbs, crackers, etc. in recipes like meatloaf.  I also have a recipe to use it to make a pizza crust (with cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, eggs, oregano, onion powder, and garlic powder).  I use onion powder instead of onion salt to cut down on the sodium.  While it does not have a pizza crust, bready texture, it still tastes good and works great as a "crust" on which to place your pizza sauce and toppings.  I am working on modifying the crust to make it more like a bread crust.


Yield: One 9 to 12-inch pizza (feeds 2 to 3 people)

Prep Time: 25 min

Cook Time: 18 min

Cauliflower Crust Hawaiian Pizza


1/2 LARGE head cauliflower (or 2+ cups shredded cauliflower)
1 large egg
1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese (or try another kind!)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried minced garlic (or fresh garlic)
1/2 teaspoon onion salt

1/2 cup tomato-basil marinara sauce (or pizza sauce)
1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese
3 slices Canadian bacon, cut into strips
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits


1. Shred the cauliflower into small crumbles. You can use the food processor if you'd like, but you just want crumbles, not puree. You'll need a total of about 2 cups or so of cauliflower crumbles (which is about half a large head of cauliflower. Place the cauliflower crumbles in a large bowl and microwave them (dry) for 8 minutes (see Tips below if you do not have a microwave). Give the cauliflower a chance to cool.

2. Prepare the crust: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet or pizza pan with nonstick spray (or use a nonstick surface). In a medium bowl, mix the cauliflower crumbles (about 1 1/2 cups since they shrink after cooking) with the remaining crust ingredients. Pat the "crust" into a 9 to 12-inch round on the prepared pan. Spray the crust lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 15 minutes (or until golden). Remove the crust from the oven and turn the heat up to broil.

3. Prepare the pizza: Spread the sauce on top of the baked crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border around the edge. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese on top. Add the bacon and pineapple, spreading it out around the pizza. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Broil the pizza 3 to 4 minutes, or until the toppings are hot and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Cut into 6 slices and serve immediately.


From Eat, Drink, Smile (tip from Beth): For those who don’ t have a microwave: You can steam the florets just until they are tender (not mushy) on the stove and then let them cool before grating them. The texture/consistency won’t be the same (It will be more like a puree) but it still works fine once you mix all the ingredients together.

*Other topping ideas:
Marinara or pizza sauce with your favorite toppings
Pesto with thin sliced tomato and fresh mozzarella
Alfredo with sausage, mushrooms, Provolone & Asiago cheese
Barbecue sauce with shredded chicken, green onions and smoked gouda
*This pizza is best served on a plate with a fork.

I was able to make two pizzas from one large head of cauliflower.  My husband, my 10 year old and I all really liked the pizza and agreed that you can’t tell at all that the crust is made out of cauliflower.  It doesn’t taste like “real” pizza crust, but it doesn’t have the flavor or texture of cauliflower either.  You’ll have to try it out for yourself and let me know what you think!  Thanks so much to Beth and her Cauliflower Pizza Crust post for inspiring me to make this myself and share it with my readers!
