Mini Cauliflower Pizzas

-ADVERTISEMENT-

Ingredients:

1/3 cup marinara sauce

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup pepperoni minis

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

For the cauliflower crust

1 head cauliflower, chopped

1 large egg

1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan

1 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat; set aside.

To make the cauliflower crust, add cauliflower to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until finely ground, yielding about 2-3 cups.*

Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover loosely and place into microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until softened; let cool.

Using a clean dish towel or cheese cloth, drain cauliflower completely, removing as much water as possible.

Transfer cauliflower to a large bowl. Stir in egg, mozzarella, Parmesan, basil, oregano, garlic powder and onion powder; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Using an ice cream scoop, spread cauliflower mixture into a circle for each pizza and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden.

Top each cauliflower round with marinara, mozzarella and pepperoni minis. Place into oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 3-4 minutes.

Serve immediately, sprinkled with basil.
