Cauliflower Pizza Bites Recipe and Video

Description

These cauliflower pizza bites are gluten-free, low carb, and the perfect little mini pizzas for entertaining using your favorite toppings.

Ingredients

  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into large chunks
  • 2 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ⅓ cup pizza sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with parchment paper squares.
  2. Grate cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl using a fine grater. Chop up any remaining pieces that are too small to grate but too big for the crust.
  3. Microwave cauliflower until soft and tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour cauliflower into a clean dish towel cool easily handled, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Wrap the towel around the cauliflower and squeeze out as much liquid as possible; the drier the cauliflower is, the better it will hold together as a crust once mixed with the other ingredients.
  5. Combine cauliflower, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a large bowl.
  6. Scoop cauliflower crust mixture into prepared muffin tin, dividing the mixture evenly among the cups. Pat down cauliflower mixture with the back of a spoon, making it compact.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  8. Spoon a small amount of pizza sauce onto each cauliflower crust. Top with remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, dividing evenly among the crusts.
  9. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Let sit in pan for 5 minutes before moving each bite to a cooling rack. Let cool for 10 minutes. Peel parchment paper squares off the crusts and serve on a platter.
