Of course the Superbowl is coming up and I LOVE eating while watching the game! It’s so hard to be healthy though. Some of my favorites are chips with dip and pizza! I was happy when I came across THIS link that has several ways to make some Superbowl favorites that are a little less glutinous. Here’s one I can’t wait to try. It’s for gluten-free pizza bites with a cauliflower crust. See it below:
2 cups Cauliflower (about 1/2 head of cauliflower)
1/4 cup Egg whites (or 1 large egg white)
1/8 cup Low fat cottage cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp Dried oregano 1
1/2 tsp Dried basil 1
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 cup Mini turkey pepperoni’s (or regular size turkey pepperoni cut into quarters) 2
Optional Topping: Additional pepperoni’s to place on top just before cooking
-Preheat oven to 425. Line 14 mini muffin cups with silicone liners, or foil muffin liners with paper liners removed. Spray liners with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
-Wash cauliflower, and cut in half, (save the rest for later). Break cauliflower into segments, and place in food processor. Pulse until it reaches a rice-like texture.
-Place cauliflower in microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. (Do NOT add water or cover).
-Remove cauliflower from microwave and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir to combine. Place back in microwave for 2 minutes. Mix again.
-Scoop cauliflower mixture into muffin liners, dividing evenly between the 14 mini liners. Fill to the top, and press filling down so it’s compact in liner.
-Place muffin tin in the oven and bake muffins for 30-35 minutes, or when top starts to become golden brown. Remove from the oven, let cool completely before popping the muffins out of the liners. Serve warm with pizza sauce for dipping!
