Soft Dipping Bread Sticks

One of my fondest memories as a kid was Pizza Hut.  

Remember Pizza Hut’s BOOK IT program where they talked students into reading as a activity in return for free pizza?  If there’s one way to get kids into reading, it’s pizza. I’m totally serious.  When I found out the more reading I did meant more pizza, I turned into a library monster.  One of my life achievements is winning my city’s Winter Reading Contest.  I received a picture in the newspaper with my gold medal in one hand, a book in another.  Sounds pretty cool, right?  Well it was because it meant pizza!

How many times do we have pizza a month? Don’t ask.  We love pizza! Is it our favorite food? It’s hard to choose, it’s like telling me to pick a favorite cat (all of them!).  But pizza is definitely up there in the ranking!  Is pizza your favorite food?

In the recipe I suggest pepperoni, green peppers and mushrooms but feel free to make these pizzas your own! Top them with whatever you like.  These pizzas are great to make with kids because they can customize their toppings how they’d like. 

Speaking of kids, they’re also great to send to school for lunches.  We often pack mini pizzas for my daughter to take to daycare.  You can make a bunch at once and freeze them too!

Who doesn’t like cauliflower? I love it.    

Cauliflower pizza casserole is born!

When I first found a great cauliflower pizza casserole recipe it called for pureed cauliflower, but pureeing cauliflower that we grew seemed like a absolute sin to me.  I can’t give so much energy and love to our garden cauliflower and then just blend it up, that would be the saddest thing ever.  If we were ever to sell produce commercially I would put on every single package a (cute) warning sign that says “YOU MAY NOT PUREE ME, IT WILL MAKE PAMELA VERY SAD, PLEASE LOVE CAULIFLOWER WHOLE.  THANK YOU VERY MUCH”.  So in my recipe, we cut it into small bite size pieces.  I prefer it this way as well as the cheese will get in all the nooks and crannies of the cauliflower.    And who doesn’t’ like cheese?    Especially with cauliflower.  This is a absolute win situation.
