Cauliflower Pizza Bagels

I’ve been doing a lot with riced cauliflower lately, and it works in a good variety of ways because it doesn’t have much flavor itself, so you can do what you want with it while creating some lower calorie recipes. To make riced cauliflower, you just chop up a head of cauliflower small enough that you can get it in a food processor, process it into tiny bits, then put all of it in a microwave-safe bowl, cover with saran wrap, and microwave 10 minutes. You’re then ready to go for a whole variety of recipes like cauliflower pizza crust, as the rice in your favorite fried rice recipe, or in the recipe below:

IMG_6960 IMG_6807Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup riced cauliflower
  • 25-30 slices pepperoni cut into quarters
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seed
  • 3/4-1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced

I added a lot more tomato than the blog where I got this recipe, but seeing as it’s your only sauce stand-in, I think it’s important. Another important thing for this recipe is that you cook it in either a donut pan or a mini-muffin tin, nothing bigger. The key to the tastiness of this is the well browned/crisped edges, so doing it in a regular sized muffin tin or something else large like that would really throw off the proportion of center to crispy edges.

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and lightly grease your donut pan/mini-muffin tin. Stir all the ingredients together in a medium bowl.
