CAULIFLOWER PIZZA BITES

Ingredients

Cauliflower-Pizza-Bites.jpg

  • 1 1/2 cups grated cauliflower (approximately 1/2 large cauliflower head)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic, 2 cloves
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 large egg whites
  • Salt & pepper, to taste (I used approximately 1/4 tsp each)
  • 1/4 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 6 basil leaves, chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs 
*The number one thing I can tell you is to strain the cauliflower as best as you can.
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking/cookie sheet with parchment paper and place baking racks on top. Spray the racks with non-stick spray.
  2. Start by cutting your cauliflower in half. Measurements are based on using a large head of cauliflower. Cut the leaves and end of the cauliflower. Cut the cauliflower into small florets and toss into a food processor and process until the cauliflower reaches a rice/mashed potato look. It should be processed fine. The finer it is, the better the end result will hold together.
  3. Scoop the cauliflower into a cheesecloth or cloth napkin
  4. Place the cauliflower into the center of the cheesecloth, pulled the edges up, twisted to close and squeezed as much liquid as I could out of the processed cauliflower.
  5. It should have the look of rice/mashed potatoes. Place the processed cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and cook for 4-6 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through.
  6. Once cooked, add the remaining ingredients and stir well.
  7. Using a tablespoon and a half tablespoon, scoop the bites into 1 1/2 tablespoons in size, and roll into balls. Place evenly apart on the prepared racks and bake for 20-23 minutes. At 20 minutes in, remove from the oven & rotate the bites. Place back into the oven for remaining 2-3 minutes.

Ingredients (makes 12 pieces)

Method

  1. Position two racks in the middle of the oven. Heat to 350.

  2. Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper and cooking spray or Silpat liners.

  3. Separate the egg whites and yolks into two mixing bowls.

  9. Let the bread cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.
