I was teasing Jack. I wanted to talk about his day; he wanted to watch Martha Speaks on PBS Kids. "Jack," I said. "Will you be my friend?"

You cook the crust first, at 425 or 450. I used a bag of Trader Joe's grilled cauliflower riced in the Cuisinart with a bag of Trader Joe's shredded mozzarella and as many eggs as needed to hold it together. Herbed it with some dried basil, garlic powder, and dried oregano.
