Ultimate No-Carb Flatbread

Okay, there are carbs, like 2 g. So really, practically none. Furthermore, this flatbreadĀ tastes like real bread. I’m not quite sure how it works; it’s cooking magic. I’m not a recipe developer, but I do create some here and tweak and change existing recipes there. So when I combined my love for cauliflower crust with this recipe for mozzarella dough, I knew something special would result. And it did. Because it’s amazeballs. Seriously.IMG_3390.jpg

Now, the cauliflower part can be work. You have to rice it (grind or food process), cook it (for 5 to 8 minutes), and then squeeze out the excess water (I use a kitchen towel), but you can now buy pre-riced cauliflower, so it totally cuts down on time. Besides, this bread doesn’t require resting the dough for minutes or even hours or waiting for it to rise, so you’re practically saving time.

Plus, you can use the dough for anything from sandwiches to pizza crust to an accompaniment for antipasto salad.IMG_3396.JPG
