I bought a head of cauliflower and intended to cut it up for my kids to eat it, but waited a little too long. And well, if you know about fresh vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli, they get sour if you wait too long to eat them raw. If that happens you have two options, throw it away or cook them. Seeing as how I am not the type of person to waste good money on food that is still good (unless it has mold on it or is rancid it is still good to me).

So I made roasted cauliflower, then it morphed into a pesto cauliflower and then it morphed again into pesto wheatless pizza crust. I started by looking at a recipe from none other than my girl The Pioneer Woman.


  • 1 head cauliflower but into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • S&P to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs (I did not add this part)
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted (I did not add this part either)

Preheat oven 400 degrees.

Place on cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and S&P. Roast 15-20 minutes till golden brown, with some darker spots.

*The PW recipe calls for you to mix melted butter with panko, then put cauliflower in casserole dish top with panko, bake for 5 minutes.

What I did was put cauliflower in casserole dish, pour some pest on top, mix well, then top with Parmesan cheese, bake for 5 minutes.


Enjoy! UP next how it morphed into  pesto cauliflower wheat-less pizza crust.

P.S.  The hubbs just showed me how to make my pictures brighter and more true color in Photoshop, which will help seeing as I take my pictures with my trusty Lumix point and shoot.
