It's so hard for me to comprehend how a head of cauliflower can become a delicious cheesy flatbread...but I'm all in and can't wait to try this recipe. I can only imagine the many combinations of toppings that can be used to enhance this wonder or carb-less deliciousness. I'm thinking of trying mushrooms and garlic as my first attempt!

I don't know what we did wrong. The base was crumbly and unappealing.

Absolutely fantastic. I added shaved ham under the cheese topping and served with a salad. I would think you could use cooked chicken or turkey.

Love it, now you can eat without guilt!
