Cauliflower is a vegetable that, in my kitchen, can happily take the place of meat any day of the week. Cauliflower is so versatile, you can flavor it up any which way you please with spice rubs, herbs, and marinades, then roast it until tender and voilà, dinner.
There was many a night as a single diner where all I’d eat is a giant cast iron pan filled with sizzling, turmeric dusted, roasted cauliflower for a meal, usually standing at the counter. Well, I wouldn’t eat the pan, but almost…it was that good! If I had known about flatbread then, this pizza would have been on heavy rotation.
This flatbread pizza uses a citrusy, spicy sweet chipotle sauce to flavor the cauliflower before it’s roasted into caramelized perfection. Then it’s topped with a bevy of crispy and vibrant vegetables. This flatbread recipe is basically one giant salad!
Even though purple, orange, and vibrant green Roman cauliflower is all the rage right now, feel free to use trusty white cauliflower in this recipe. It will be easier to find and will soak up the colorful marinade beautifully. Besides, the other stuff, especially the Roman, is so gorgeous all I want to do is gaze at its magnificence- seriously, it’s like a vegetable work of fractal art!
If you’re repelled by cilantro, not to worry, you can make this pizza just as well without cilantro, if you like. Add some extra lime juice, some scallions, or some parsley! The best thing about flatbread is there’s always room to improvise, especially when it comes to flavorful vegetables and herbs!
Go meatless and boost your daily veggies tonight with this new flatbread recipe!
