This is another variation on my Cheesy Cauliflower Steaks I made last year that have a combined 40 million views on all my platforms. Its amazing how much everyone loved the recipe and I’m so grateful that it was useful!

To make this recipe vegan or vegetarian, simply sub out the parmesan for nutritional yeast. Use dairy free shredded mozzarella. And switch up the toppings with sliced olives or mushrooms. This is such a customizable recipe.
