Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

My 162nd post, “Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks”, a super delicious variation of the regular bread sticks. While I had the choice of ordering a pizza from Pizza Hut when I was in India, I never was really fond of having one. It was just a very rare affair.

But once I moved to the US, suddenly I grew a love for Pizza Hut. Initially I used to order a pizza and cheese sticks atleast twice a week. There was nothing more delicious than a warm and cheesy breadstick along with a dip in the lovely marinara sauce. But that love did not last for long and it soon changed into an aversion within a few months. Since RK still loves pizza and cheesy bread sticks he used to order from Pizza hut once a month or so.

But I started feeling heavy after eating the yeasty bread sticks and could not eat more than a small piece. So when I came across a recipe which used a cauliflower crust I was overjoyed. I wanted to immediately try making it, since Cauliflower is my most favorite vegetable. When I made it today, I really fell for it. It was easy to make and to me it tasted so wonderful. I would rank this Cheesy cauliflower breadsticks to be more delicious than its yeasty cousin. Probably a slightly healthier way to enjoy a wonderful breadstick 😉 The recipe was adapted from here

  • Preheat the oven to 425 F. Transfer the cauliflower mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form it into a rectangle and smooth the sides and top. I used an icing spatula to even it out. Bake in the oven for about 25 mins or until it is golden brown on the top.

  • Remove it from the oven and sprinkle on the 1/2 cup of cheese to cover the top and bake for a further 5 mins until the cheese is fully melted and bubbly.

Notes | FAQ

- You can also grate the cauliflower finely instead of pulsing.
- The cauliflower after pulsing measure 2 Cups for me. All other ingredients are measured based on the quantity of cauliflower after pulsing.
- I used Italian cheese blend instead of just plain mozzarella cheese.
- I just had 1/2 cup of cheese left for topping. You can add as much you need to top the breadstick.

Didn't stay or stick together, perhaps mixing an egg in might bind mixture?

Hi L I sa, this is supposed to be an egg free recipe with cheese providing the binding. I never had issues with not sticking together. However adding an egg would do it no harm.
