  4. Using your hands, rub the oil into the cauliflower, coating both sides. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper.

  5. Place the cauliflower on the lower rack of the oven. Roast for 20 minutes or until tender. Let the cauliflower cool slightly on the pan and break or cut it into smaller pieces.

  6. Wipe clean the baking sheet used to roast the cauliflower. Place the dough in the center of the baking sheet and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of oil.

  12. In a bowl, toss the greens with the remaining tablespoon of the oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper. Cut into squares and serve hot.
