Found this on YouTube, pretty good at explaining low carb flours and what they do and are used for

Thanks, that was quite informative.

FYI: I have not made any new attempts at low carb pizza or breads in over a month now. My weight loss had stalled in all of Aug 2018 and then in Sep I discovered Dr Jason Fung on youtube who provided me an advanced education on how the human body operates in regards to metabolism & weight loss/gain. Long story short, Intermittent Fasting is the key to both weight loss and reversing insulin resistance. I'm currently fasting 15 to 20 hours per day and typically consuming 800 to 1200 low carb, high fat  calories in the small window of 9 to 4 hours daily. Guess what???  It's working!!! 

I'm shocked on how easy it is to fast for long periods of time because there is no intense hunger as one would expect. I only seem to get hungry once I break the fast.

Anyway, I'm back on track to losing weight and hopefully a total reversal of type-2 diabetes so that I will be able to tolerate regular pizza once again. :)

I have not given up on making reduced carb pizza and will be doing more of that in the near future. I just lost focus over the past 6 weeks due to concentrating on fasting and some software I'm writing that allows me to track mainly CARBS & CALORIES.

I will say, previous to all this, I did have some good success with making a reduced carb pizza crust that actually tasted like pizza using a combo of bread flour and cauliflower. The trick was to ferment the cauliflower in vinegar and infuse it with garlic & onion flavor which eliminates that nasty cauliflower taste. So I'm still occasionally eating that pizza from my frozen pizza supply and will probably not be baking any new pizza until it's gone.

One other thing that is quite amazing. That ground up cauliflower that I fermented & flavored with onion & garlic, it holds up for weeks in the frig. No mold, no stink, it just remains the same for weeks. And that's in it's dehydrated state. That's a big plus if you grind down an entire head and just what to use a small portion at a time for experimenting with new recipes.

Keep posting!  I'm at least reading all your low carb posts. Hopefully we can get more members here excited about making low carb pizza that actually tastes like pizza.

JFYI, this is vinegar-pickled cauliflower you are describing, not fermented cauliflower

This one is as close as I have come to real pizza taste so far.  Although it was made in an air fryer which help time wise but the crust was as good as the cheap pizza you get at the lower pizza chains (no names will be given)  ;)

How does one differentiate between pickled & fermented?
I "soak" it for 24 hours in vinegar before dehydrating it.

Quick vinegar pickling doesn't produce bacterial growth.  Whereas fermenting with salt or kefir, yogurt, konji, etc. produces live good bacterial growth.  Think kimchi, no vinegar just salt.

I like the taste of cauliflower. Am I in the minority?

Keep in mind, we are talking about using cauliflower to make a pizza crust. If you follow most cauliflower pizza crust recipes, the final result might taste good (if you like CFL), but it actually tastes more like Eggplant Parmesan than it does pizza.

My goal is to use the CFL for it's low carb properties and try to neutralize the taste so that it actually tastes like pizza.  So I'm guessing that the vinegar works to neutralize that strong CFL taste and the garlic & onion help to mask any remaining CFL taste. Then by introducing a relatively small amount of bread flour back into the recipe, it helps more as a flavoring agent. So far, with this approach, the flavor profile is more like pizza, but the texture still needs improvement.
