CAULIFLOWER PIZZA BITES 3 WAYS

Celebrate your love for pizza any time of day! These cauliflower pizza bites provide all that delicious pizza flavor in the form of a healthy, low-carb, high-protein snack! I made them three ways: classic margherita, veggie supreme, and pepperoni.

Pizza used to be a trigger food for me – meaning, if it was in my presence, I would eat it until it was completely gone! These days I have a much more balanced love for pizza. I regularly enjoy a couple slices of stuffed crust pizza (eating until I’m satisfied not stuffed). Even more often, I’ll down an entire cauliflower crust pizza! There is just something about the combined gratification of eating pizza while knowing I’m also getting my daily dose of veggies 😉

Basic ingredients you'll need

For these cauliflower pizza bites, you only need a few simple ingredients. I bought frozen riced cauliflower, steamed it in the microwave, then wrung it out in a dish towel until only a few drops of water came out. Squeezing out as much water as possible is key for cauliflower pizza crust. If you have a stream of water or steady dripping when you squeeze, there’s still too much water in your cauliflower. You should only get few drops squeezing as hard as you can!

The only other ingredients are mozzarella, parmesan, garlic powder, oregano, and one whole egg. If you’re vegan, feel free to use vegan mozzarella, vegan parmesan, and one flax egg.

Cheese only version

I pre-baked my cauliflower pizza bites using a muffin tin in the oven at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes until browned. For a cheese only version, just add some organic pizza sauce and additional mozzarella on top of your bites and bake another 5 minutes until melty!

Margherita pizza bites

For the classic margherita cauliflower pizza bites, I topped my pre-baked bites with pizza sauce, mozzarella, chopped tomato, and fresh basil.

Veggie supreme pizza bites

For the veggie supreme version, I topped my cauliflower pizza bites with pizza sauce, mozzarella, red onion, green pepper, and mushrooms. Chicken sausage and olives would be a yummy addition, too!

Pepperoni pizza bites

For the pepperoni cauliflower pizza bites, I topped my bites with with pizza sauce, mozzarella, and chopped turkey pepperoni on top (look for nitrite/nitrate free). They were all so good it’s hard to decide a favorite! But if forced to choose, I would say pepperoni.

Here’s the printable recipe for these cauliflower pizza bites three ways! I hope you will rate and comment below if you try them 🙂
