I've been working on make a cheese "bread" sticks out of a cauliflower crust for a while now, and I think I've finally got it down!  I brought a batch to work and everyone was surprised to learn what they were made out of.  If you're following a low carb or gluten free diet these guys are a must!

**One head of cauliflower will yield two batches-This is reflected in the ingredient list below

One Head of Fresh Cauliflower
2 1/2 cups of shredded cheese (I used Cheddar Jack)
4-5 Cloves of Garlic cut into small pieces
4 Tbs Olive Oil
2 Eggs
2 tsp Oregano
2 tsp Garlic Salt
2 tsp Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Cut cauliflower in florets
  3. Place florets into boiling water for 15 minutes or until soft
  4. Place cooked florets into a colander and mash with hands until you get a rice-like texture (it's important to get out as much water as possible)
  5. Place half of mashed cauliflower into a large mixing bowl and add 1 cup of shredded cheese, 2-3 pieces of garlic, 1 egg, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp parsley, and salt and pepper to taste, and mix well with hands
  6. Place mixture onto a prepared baking sheet and press into a rectangle shape
  7. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges start to brown
  8. In a small bowl mix together 2 Tsp olive oil and 1 clove of garlic
  9. Brush olive oil and garlic mixture onto baked cauliflower crust
  10. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese onto crust and place back into oven until cheese melts-about 1-2 minutes
  11. Enjoy!

*Don't forget to prepare your baking sheeting!  If you don't these guys will stick and burn.  If you have parchment (NOT wax) paper around I recommend using it.
*It's easier to cut the "bread" sticks with a pizza cutter while they're still on the cookie sheet then pull them off a few at a time.

  1. I've seen the pizza crusts before, but never breadsticks. They look so yummy and cheesy! :D I love cauliflower to begin with, so even if it did taste like cauliflower, that would be fine by me!
