This recipe is so great because you don’t need a crust. Just an oven proof bowl. You won’t taste the cauliflower at all and it acts as a bulking agent, making this a fantastic use for this vegetable! This recipe is gluten free and induction friendly.
The serving size below is for four, 3/4 cup casserole ramekins. Make extra for friends (or for yourself. You’re your best friend!)

I don’t have the carb numbers for this, but it’s super low carb and absolutely delicious.
Nosh responsibly… and carry a big fork.
yummm, looks amazing and love the stats.
I will have to try this to mix things up for our Sunday pizza night. Check out the low carb pizza crust on my blog if you want to try a thin crispy crust.
I like to toss pizza toppings with enough pizza sauce (Pastorini has no sugar) to coat, dump it in a greased foil pie pan, top with cheese and bake. Cures my craving (and my hubby's to a degree) and is fairly quick and easy.
Hi Jamie! Do you think this could be adapted to go into a 8×8 pan? Perhaps if I double the ingredients?

I would say so, absolutely. And what a great idea!
