Cauliflower Pizza Bites

I thought I was so clever substituting steamed and mashed cauliflower for mashed potatoes!!  And then I saw these on my news feed and HAD to try them!   (Hey! Pizza!!!!!  No carb pizza!!!!!!!)

Cauliflower Pizza Bites


1 large head cauliflower
2 large eggs
1 c. shredded mozzarella
1/4 c. shredded Parmesan
3 tbsp. finely chopped fresh basil
1 tbsp. garlic powder
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c. marinara
1/4 c. mini pepperoni

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

Grate cauliflower on the small side of box grater to form fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl.
Add egg, 1/3 mozzarella, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons basil, and garlic powder and season with salt and pepper. 

Form into small patties (they will be wet) and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake until golden, 20 minutes.
Top each cauli patty with a thin layer of marinara, remaining mozz, and mini pepperoni and bake until cheese melts and pepperoni crisps, 5 to 7 minutes more.
Garnish with remaining basil and serve.
