If you’re something like me, you like pizza and tacos! This month I’m going to offer you a bit mash up. Some time in the past there was a query requested on one of many many pizza teams, “What’s an under-utilized pizza topping?” My reply: cauliflower. I completely like it roasted and added to a pizza. Additionally it is nice added to mac and cheese. The identical rules apply: melted cheese and cauliflower go collectively effectively. It’s magic. For this recipe I roast and deal with the cauliflower like pork carnitas. The flavors are nice, and for these of you that want to skip meat from time to time or an excellent vegetable choice to your pizza, give this a strive. There may be some prep concerned with this one, although. The pickled onions and the pickled peppers take a day or so to arrange. However it’s positively well worth the time.

This recipe will make three to 4 10-12-inch pizzas. Get pleasure from!
