Gluten-free, keto pizza recipe with the same incredible flavours but without the carbs. An easy and quick fix if you are craving for pizza.
14 oz. cauliflower florets, cut into bite-size pieces
½ tsp. Salt
2.5 oz. Pepperoni
2 lbs Italian Sausage, if in casings remove from the casing before cooking
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
8 oz. Mushrooms, sliced
1 Green Pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
12 oz. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1.5 c Low Carb Pasta Sauce, we use Rao’s Homemade Marinara
1/4 c Parmesan cheese, powdered
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Step 1: In a microwave-safe bowl, place the cauliflower with a cup of water. Use a damp paper towel to cover the cup and microwave for about 3 minutes on high or until the cauliflower is tender. Remember not to overcook the cauliflower.
Step 2: Drain and pat dry the cauliflower with a paper towel and set aside.
Step 3: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F.
Step 4: Cook the Italian sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes. When done cooking, drain excess grease and set aside.
Step 5: Saute the mushrooms in olive oil in the same skillet for about 10 minutes over medium-high heat to remove the excess water. When done, set the cooked mushrooms aside.
Step 6: Grease with non-stick spray a 13 x 9-inch casserole dish. On the bottom, spread half a cup of pasta sauce.
Step 7: Toss the cauliflower, cooked Italian sausage, mushrooms, and green peppers in a large bowl until well combined.
Step 8: In the casserole dish, spread half of the sausage mixture and top with half a cup of pasta sauce, half of the pepperonis, and 6 ounces of mozzarella cheese.
Step 9: Layer on the top the rest of the toppings, pepperonis (saving 10 slices), pasta sauce, and mozzarella cheese.
Step 10: Combine the Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in a small bowl.
Step 11: Sprinkle on top of the casserole the Parmesan mixture and top with the remaining 10 slices of pepperoni.
Step 12: Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until warmed through and the cheese has completely melted.
