1. The first rule of cauliflower pizza crust is: don’t expect real pizza crust. It is only by lowering expectations that we can be pleasantly surprised.
2. If you’re feeling intimidated by this strange and mysterious process, say to yourself, “Look, it’s not brain surgery.” Of course, after you cleave that cauliflower into two pieces you will not be able to ignore the sensation that you are performing a lobotomy. Each “crust” (note quotes) takes about half of a head.
4. Accept that all those leftover crumbles too big for the “dough” (note quotes) will go into your refrigerator with all the best intentions, and will need to be extracted from the crisper several months later while wearing a hazmat suit. Because: of course nobody ever chooses to eat cauliflower unless it is significantly transformed to taste like something else.
5. Never underestimate the power of parchment paper. Do not skip this step.
7. Bring a fork to this party: picking up this “pizza” (note quotes) with your hands is tricky business, especially after you heap on the toppings.
8. Prepare to be thinner, smarter, sexier, and, most importantly…..gluten-free! Is there anything more important than gluten-free these days?
10. As delicious as this is, and as much as you may convince yourself, your child will not, under any circumstances, eat even a bite of this trickery. Oh, nooooo nooooo nooooo, absolutely no fooling budding pizza aficionados (note NO quotes).
