Notes

The breadcrumbs are optional and should be used if you feel that the mixture is a little too wet to shape. I personally like using the breadcrumbs in the crust and usually add at least a tablespoon or two to hold the dough together and give it some extra flavor.
If you do not own a food processor then steam the cauliflower florets in the microwave first then dice them up with a knife. I've done that before in my cauliflower tots recipe and it worked perfectly
If you do not own a microwave you may steam the cauliflower over medium heat for 5 minutes then dice it with a knife or quickly process it in the food processor. Be sure to steam it BEFORE processing or dicing.
