Cauliflower bites Pinterest recipe

Oh yum, I finally got around to trying a recipe that is constantly repinned on Pinterest: Cauliflower pizza bites. I don't know where the original recipe came from for sure, but the link I followed was from: Damy.

They were a little time consuming after work but really yummy. This recipe is a keeper!

Here's the recipe verbatim. All credit to 

·         2 Cups Grated Cauliflower (washed, dried and grated using a food processor or cheese grater by hand until rice-like or thinner – Note – Approximately one head of cauliflower)
·         1/4 Cup Egg Whites
·         1 Cup 1% Cottage Cheese (drained)
·         1 Tsp Oregano
·         2 Tsp Parsley
·         1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
·         1 Tbsp Coconut Oil (Optional)
·         1-2 Tbsp Frank’s Hot Sauce (Optional)
1.    Pre-heat your oven to 450 F.
2.    Using a healthy cooking oil spray your mini muffin tin.
3.    In a hot frying stir fry the “cauliflower rice” until the cauliflower is slightly translucent (about 6-8 minutes). Place in a bowl and let cool.
4.    Place all other ingredients the food processor and blend until smooth.
5.    In a bowl combine both the “cauliflower rice” and blended ingredients. Mix completely.
6.    Evenly spoon mixture into your muffin tin molds. Press pizza dough down evenly and firmly (*The pressing down firmly is very important to make sure these stick together).
7.    Place in your oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
8.    Remove the pizza bites from the oven and let set until cool (This is also very important – let these pizza bites set in their pan for 5 – 10 minutes before removing – If you take them out while they are too hot they will break).
Once cool remove from muffin tin (either by tipping them out OR by running a thin knife down along the side and popping them out).

I served it with spicy salsa and other vegies.  H agreed it was a keeper that was worth repeating.
