Ya I understand how to do math.
What I meant was, that the original poster said her pizza was something like 41 calories a slice (8 slices per pizza) making it about 330 calories per pizza. When I do the math (which i actually did earlier today when thinking maybe I would make a cauliflower crust pizza for dinner before realizing it is way higher in calories than one would think.) it shows me that making it at the lowest calorie/fat ingredients would make it over 400, closer to 425 without any toppings. No cheese on top, only inside the crust.

So what kind of mozzarella, parmesan, etc are being used to make it nearly 100 calories less?

I wrote a few messages down that I forgot to mention the calorie content was just for the crust, because toppings are such variables! Sorry about the confusion, it was too late to edit by the time I logged back in!

I was just about to post a topic on this, but I may as well ask here! Can you make this with frozen cauliflower? If it's defrosted and all that

That looks soooo good! Do you think it would be good with vegan cheese?

Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try to make it tonight. For those asking why sub cauliflower and not have the "real thing".... for me it's because I am type 1 diabetic. I am sure there are others eating gluten free. It's not a matter of building the calories into the daily count for some.

Why? Why does everyone think cauliflower can replace everything?:sick:

Eat the real thing.

Judgement of others in a place where we are all trying to be healthier isn't healthy, supportive or motivating. Eating the real thing may work for you. It might not for others. Some people are trying to avoid (or physically have to avoid) ingredients that are in pizza crust, mashed potatoes, etc. Recipes like this gives those people options.
