Great Recipe from Pinterest
Jo and Sue: Cauliflower Pizza Bites
Cauliflower Pizza Bites
(From [COLOR=#770719]Healthy DAMY[/COLOR] )
2 cups grated cauliflower
1/4 cup egg whites
1 cup 1% Cottage Cheese
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp garlic salt
pinch black pepper
pinch hot sauce
36 slices turkey pepperoni
Preheat oven to 450. Spray mini muffin trays with cooking spray.
In a hot frying pan, stir the grated cauliflower until it is slightly translucent - about 5 - 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
Place remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Pour blended ingredients into the bowl with the cauliflower and stir to combine well.
Evenly spoon mixture into prepared muffin tins. Press down firmly. Press a slice of turkey pepperoni onto each one.
(Just waiting for the pepperoni and then into the oven...)
Bake at 450 for 25 - 30 minutes, until golden brown. (If your crust is not golden brown after the recommended time then cook longer. They should be golden brown.)
Remove from the oven and let sit in the pan for about 5 - 10 minutes before removing. If you take them out while they are too hot they will fall apart.
Now, at this point I went off point from the original recipe. I found when I removed the bites they were still really pale on the bottom. I left them on the cooling racks, placed the cooling racks onto a cookie tray, and placed the cookie tray under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp/brown up the bottom of them.
These are great served with a pizza or pasta sauce for dipping.
See..they look really cute, and they tasted great, and they are healthy, and..well...there are lots of reasons to make these and eat them.
I (or someone...) just needs to come up with a solution to the clean up mess.
I just really do not like having to scrub out pans.
