Using the same idea as pizza crust, it’s easy to make a low carb cheesy cauliflower breadsticks recipe instead. Simply leave out the pizza sauce!

I’m always amazed by all the fantastic things you can do with cauliflower. It’s a staple ingredient on low carb and goes way beyond a potato substitute.
When I got started on this way of life, I discovered that cauliflower can make a fantastic pizza crust. As the years went on, I also experimented with using it in chocolate pudding and pie crust.
I’ve also seen others sneak this versatile vegetable into pumpkin pie because it’s a terrific thickening agent. Because of this property, it’s often used to thicken soups as well.
But, I’ve gone back to the basic pizza crust recipe to make a low carb cheesy cauliflower breadsticks recipe. And, you don’t have to limit yourself with the standard rectangular sticks.

Using the same idea as cauliflower pizza crust, it's easy to make low carb cheesy breadsticks recipe instead. Simply leave out the pizza sauce!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups cauliflower riced (about 3.75 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups Monterey jack cheese freshly grated (about 6 ounces)
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley minced (for garnishing)

Instructions
  1. Remove the base or leaves and cut cauliflower into florets. Rice cauliflower by using a food processor. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, you can use a microwave or a toaster oven. Allow to cool.
  2. Pre-heat oven at 450F.
  3. Once riced cauliflower has cooled, place in a kitchen towel and strain the liquid. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  4. Season cauliflower with sage, oregano, thyme and mustard seed. Mix well.
  5. Season egg with ground black pepper. Pour beaten egg, 3 tablespoon cheese and combine with seasoned cauliflower. Allow for eggs to set at the buttom of the bowl and spoon the excess eggs out.
  6. In a greased baking sheet, spread cauliflower until about 1/4 inch thick, rectagular shape.
  7. For the heart-shaped Cauliflower “Bread” Sticks, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter. 1/2 cup of cauliflower mixture makes about 9 heart-shaped in different sizes. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes. Top with 1/2 cup cheese and bake in the oven for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted and golden.
  8. For the remaining 1 cup of cauliflower mixture formed into a rectagular shape, bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. Top with the remaining cheese and bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden in color.
  9. Cool for about 2 to 3 minutes and slice with a pizza cutter.
  10. Garnish with freshly minced parsley. Serve with marinara sauce or with a Creamy Cheese Sauce (see note).
