No, I didn't have Cilla Black leaping out of the woodwork at me (Wiki link for those for whom that cultural reference went straight overhead!) but I did have a very pleasant surprise yesterday.
I made the cauliflower crust pizza from Lavender & Lovage. I was so not sure that it was a good idea - and I was so surprised to find that actually, it worked! It wasn't exactly pizza, but it was a tasty, cheesy base upon which to put pizza-like ingredients. Mr FD couldn't believe his tastebuds!
It gave a very savoury base for the ingredients, with a slight cauliflower tang. It needed a knife and fork to eat (mine stuck to the baking sheet, & came off in pieces, so I should oil it better next time) but with a salad of leaves (grace à Michel) and coleslaw made with low calorie mayo, and Yve's cabbage it was satisfying enough to keep me going through the evening.
A very pleasant surprise!
