Cauliflower Pizza Bites

  • 2 cups (approx. 1 head) of grated cauliflower (use a food processor or cheese grater to grate down to rice-sized pieces)

  • 1/4 cup of egg whites

  • 1 cup of 1% cottage cheese

  • 2 tsp of parsley

  • 1 tsp of oregano

  • 1/4 tsp of garlic powder

  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil (optional)

  • 1-2 tbsp marinara or hot sauce (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a mini muffin tin using Pam or another zero-calorie cooking spray. Stir the cauliflower in a hot frying pan until it is slightly translucent (about 6-8 minutes). Then place it in a bowl to cool. Throw all other ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. In a separate bowl, stir together the cauliflower and other ingredients under completely blended. Spoon the mixture into your muffin tin. VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure to press the "dough" down firmly and evenly so that it sticks together. Put the tin in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes. Take the pizza bites out of the oven and let sit for 5-10 minutes to cool. (If you get anxious and take them out too soon, they'll break on ya!) After the bites have cooled, remove them from the tin by turning them upside down or running a knife along the sides of each muffin. Dunk in a tiny bit of marinara or hot sauce for extra flavor.
