You know what I like about this recipe? Back when I was low-carbing it I tried to make a cauliflower pizza and it was so messy and the crust was TERRIBLE because it just fell right apart. Why? BECAUSE I'M A HORRIBLE COOK. But! I'll bet it's far less messy in these miniature little pizza cup thingies. I might try this!
