Ok just read the amazing recipe that (Kiz I believe) posted. My silly questions is can you use frozen cauliflower? I have bags and bags of it, I do not like Cauliflower so I am not sure what to do with it. I was thinking I could use it in this pizza recipe??? or maybe someone else may have some other thing I could use this frozen cauliflower for..

Thank you for any ideas..

I don't see why not. I'm trying to think how I'd use it...

What I'd probably do is let it thaw out about 30%, then shred it. You don't want to let it thaw out completely because it gets pretty soft, and then I think it would be harder to shred. You also don't want to put something fully frozen in a food processor because it can mess up your machine. It also may have a bit more moisture in it, so after you shred it, maybe you want to pat it on some paper towels?.

How are you planning to shred it? I think it would be hard to shred in anything other than a food processor.

Also, just double check to make sure you're using the right weight for a cup. Not sure if frozen weighs different than fresh (I am the worst at frozen vs. fresh vs. cooked... confuses the heck out of me)..

I use frozen cauliflower for my mashed cauliflower recipe and it comes out great! Here is that recipe..

In the mashed cauliflower recipe, I've also had success cutting down on the cheeses so I can use part of my lean on something else. (Like I'll do 1/3 cheese, 1/3 ricotta, and 1/3 a meat or boca burger.)..

I only use the frozen stuff..

Sometimes I get the garlic flavor from Birdseye brand...

I'm not the OP but I don't have a food processor so I had to shred an entire head of cauliflower with a cheese grater. It. Took. Forever. It wasn't that bad, I guess, in the long run since I was preparing several crusts at once... Just really time consuming..

It can be done, just turn some music on and make it fun...

Thank you, yes I do have a food processor so I will follow your recipe. I will have to look for the mashed cauliflower recipe, I have not come across that. your pizza is the first time I willl be making any thing. I am not a cook so my L & G are usually salads. Sent you a PM about how to log into L&G's.

Thank you again for the time you spent on doing this for everyone!..

You are my hero in patience!!! I'm just thinking, the thing with fresh vs. frozen is that you can cut fresh into big pieces and shred, so you have more to hold while shredding. With frozen, it is much smaller.

Maybe one of those "circular" cheese graters (like for Parmesan) where you put it in and turn the knob would work well on the frozen stuff? I'm just thinking I would trash my fingers and nails trying to shred the little florets that frozen is cut into with my bell grater. I'd do okay with big chunks cut from fresh though. What do you think?..

Oh my gosh, I've so enjoyed it. I am not a cook at ALL either, so I figure if an idiot in the kitchen like me can do it, anyone can do it. I replied to your PM - I just put the ingredients in my favorites and drag and drop them over. It would be SMART for me to add up all the stats for the ingredients and just create one "private" food that is L&G pizza, but I'm lazy.

I hope it turns out well for you! Not every recipe is for everyone, but this one has been amazing for me. My mom is coming over to visit tonight and I'm making her eat it. LOL..

With the frozen just press all the water out with a hand towel. I usually use fresh but when I have used frozen, I cook in the microwave really well then mash the bejesus out of it with a potatoe masher and mix it up that way. It isn't as smooth of a crust but just as tasty...

The Garlic Mashed Cauliflower that I make is.

1 head of Cauliflower or 1 bag of frozen.

2 squares Laughing Cow Lite Garlic Cheese.

Or.

2tbsp Cream Cheese.

Blend with a hand blender, food processor or blender. These methods make it real smooth. You could use a hand masher but it will come out more chunkier.

I love this. And one head makes 2 servings...
