Actually, hate is probably too strong a word. I didn’t care enough about cauliflower to hate it. It was more like cauliflower was just not appealing to me. I tried it once and it had no taste and since then it just wasn’t a desirable vegetable.
Then I tasted it roasted.
Boy was that a game changer. Who knew cauliflower could be so, well, tasty. All browned up and crispy like that it was almost addictive. Next thing you know, cauliflower was going into everything. I made soups. I made stews. I even made my fair share of brownies, cakes and cookies. (By the way, every single one those linked up words leads to a different recipe. Check them out!)
And now I give you pizza sticks.
The cauliflower pizza crust thing has been going around for a while now. I absolutely love the idea of it, and was super excited when I heard of it first.
These Pizza Sticks are my take on the whole trend. The crust, which is, of course, made from cauliflower, is very thin, making them a great snack or light appetizer. And they’re also super kid friendly, what with the whole pizza concept and all. Serve them with or without cheese for a great introduction to the cauliflower craziness!
Cauliflower Pizza Sticks
- 200 g cauliflower
- 1/2 cup egg whites
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese (this is optional, but recommended for a more pizza-like taste)
I’m looking for more fun cauliflower experiments to try. What’s your favorite funky recipe?
