Cauliflower Pizza Bites
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.
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.
Place them on a cooling rack and then put 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.
