Now that the new year has started and football season is in full swing, I have to get creative in the kitchen. Most tailgating foods are delicious and decadent but unfortunately, not very good for you. I had experimented with cauliflower in the past by making rice and mashed potatoes with it. The result was a success, but I had to take this versatile vegetable to the next level and make something completely unexpected.

I was a bit apprehensive at the thought of turning a vegetable into something that resembles bread. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to prepare a dish that everyone is open to trying. Once the crust was ready, I topped it with Cacique® Dos Quesos Blend shredded cheese. The melt of the Oaxaca and Quesadilla cheese was perfect for this better-for-you-pizza. The blend also has a kick of jalapeño so it’s perfect for those of us that like a little spice in our lives. I decided to keep this appetizer as a vegetarian dish so I opted for Cacique’s soy chorizo as a second topping. The soy chorizo gave it the perfect finish with the perfect chorizo-like texture and spice.

What a treat! Even the pickiest members of my family could not believe this pizza was completely vegetarian and its crust made of none other… than a head of cauliflower.
