Do you experience pumpkin carving anxiety?
Would you say that it’s mild, moderate or extreme?
Mine has definitely diminished over the years largely thanks to my sons’ coming of age and an eventual admission that I am in no way gifted at the task. It turns out that I didn’t have to speak the words, they figured it out all on their own (kids can be smart that way).
It seems my pumpkins look pretty much the same every year. Two undersized eyes, an awkward mouth and one hanging tooth (some years I’ve had to toothpick the tooth on there). A fiercely inventive presentation. And then there’s our beloved neighbour — the one who refers to every plant in his garden by its Latin name — who arrives home at 5 pm ritualistically on the 31st and turns mode pieces fit for a Martha Stewart shoot out onto his front porch within an hour — all without breaking a sweat. At least 3 new creations every year and never one repeat.
Funny the things you miss.
So, when was the last time you sank your teeth into a cauliflower pizza crust?
I thought so.
This recipe exceeded my expectations in every respect. I was sold on the nutrition aspect of this grain-free substitute but was not prepared for the simplicity, functionality and surprisingly good taste. It actually works and it works well! I have my friend Sandra to thank for this delightful find and for doing all of the research for us on what works and what doesn’t when it comes to making cauliflower pizza crust.
(The toppings are the only time consuming part of this recipe and you can make those your own!)
