  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with parchment paper squares. Watch Now
  2. Grate cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl using a fine grater. Chop up any remaining pieces that are too small to grate but too big for the crust. Watch Now
  3. Microwave cauliflower until soft and tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour cauliflower into a clean dish towel cool easily handled, 15 to 20 minutes. Watch Now
  4. Wrap the towel around the cauliflower and squeeze out as much liquid as possible; the drier the cauliflower is, the better it will hold together as a crust once mixed with the other ingredients. Watch Now
  5. Combine cauliflower, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a large bowl. Watch Now
  6. Scoop cauliflower crust mixture into prepared muffin tin, dividing the mixture evenly among the cups. Pat down cauliflower mixture with the back of a spoon, making it compact. Watch Now
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Watch Now
  8. Spoon a small amount of pizza sauce onto each cauliflower crust. Top with remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, dividing evenly among the crusts. Watch Now
  9. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Let sit in pan for 5 minutes before moving each bite to a cooling rack. Let cool for 10 minutes. Peel parchment paper squares off the crusts and serve on a platter. Watch Now

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:

Love this recipe. I've tried the bigger version before, but this bite-size held together much better. I didn't have fresh mozzarella so I used the grated stuff that comes in a can. I also th...

Way too many steps and fuss for the finished product. They don't stay warm very long so don't plan to take them to a pot luck dinner.
