This is a quick and easy go-to when you don't feel like cooking.The pesto can be made ahead of time to really cut down on the time in the kitchen.  Top this flatbread with your favorite toppings but don't go to hard, it still is a cauliflower crust. LOL.  Also this is low carb, so you can't beat that.

  • Kitchen Hacks:

    My season blend that I make consist of salt, pepper, paprika, oregano + garlic powder.

    Frozen cauliflower can work but it must be drained well before using. Not wet.

    Use a mason jar for blending up the pesto. Just add the blending attachment to the jar + blend.  No mess. Just screw the top on the jar if there is leftovers.
