Diabetic Friendly: Low Carbs Cauliflower Pizza Bites

These low carb pizza muffins start with a cauliflower base. It’s similar to cauliflower crust pizza, but much less work and in a portable muffin form. Try dipping these crispy bites in your favourite pizza or pasta sauce!

Prep Time: 20 Minutes

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Servings: 18

  • 2 cups grated cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 1 cup 1% Cottage Cheese
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • pinch hot sauce
  • 36 slices pepperoni

Preheat oven to 230°C. Spray mini muffin trays with cooking spray.

Step 2

In a hot frying pan, stir the grated cauliflower until it is slightly translucent – about 5 – 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Step 3

Place remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.

Step 4

Pour blended ingredients into the bowl with the cauliflower and stir to combine well.

Step 5

Evenly spoon mixture into prepared muffin tins. Press down firmly. Press a slice of turkey pepperoni onto each one.

Step 6

Bake at 230°C for 25 – 30 minutes, until golden brown. (If your crust is not golden brown after the recommended time then cook longer. They should be golden brown.)

Step 7

Remove from the oven and let sit in the pan for about 5 – 10 minutes before removing. If you take them out while they are too hot they will fall apart.

Step 8

Leave them on the cooling racks, placed the cooling racks onto a cookie tray, and placed the cookie tray under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp/brown up the bottom of them.

These are great served with a pizza or pasta sauce for dipping.
