Store bought cauliflower crumbles are now readily available on store shelves, making it easier than ever to make yummy, low-carb treats. Once you try cauliflower as a starch substitute, you’ll be amazed at how wonderful it is.

Last week, I blogged about this cauliflower crust pizza. It was a huge hit with the fam, and I plan on adding it to the meal rotation.

Today’s recipe~cheesy cauliflower breadsticks~was another hit with the kids. We dipped these in our favorite pizza sauce (Del Grosso) and felt like we’d really splurged! I served these with spaghetti squash (another new obsession that I’ll blog about soon), and we were totally riding the yummy train!:-)

These are super easy to make but do require a bit of in and out of the oven and flipping the crust. The reason this in bsticksnecessary is to ensure that both sides of the crust bake to a golden crusty exterior. It also makes the breadsticks more breadlike so that they can be picked up and eaten like real bread.

A few handy kitchen tools can make this process a lot easier, especially if you plan to make cauliflower crusts often. Pizza pans with holes and a large baking grid make the process a snap. Two of my faves are below.

Helpful Tools….

This Faberware Pizza Crisper lets air circulate underneath the pan so that the bottom of the crust will get cooked more quickly. I keep two of these and use them to “flip” cauliflower crust so that both sides can be perfectly browned.

I love this 14 1/2 x 20 Nonstick Baking Grid and simply place it atop a foil lined baking sheet to bake or roast foods that need circulation and even browning.

If you try these, please leave feedback! I hope someone out there enjoys these as much as we do:-) As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
