Equipment

  • Oven
  • 2 Cup Ramekins
  • Large Skillet/Fry Pan

Ingredients

Parmesan Cauliflower Crust Layer

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Garlic Salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce of your choice

Sauteed Zucchini Layer

  • 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup quartered zucchini
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 pepperoni slices quartered
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoon cup bacon crumbles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray two 2 cup ramekins with cooking spray.
  • To prepare the Parmesan Cauliflower crust layer, add oil to large skillet over medium heat. When hot, add cauliflower rice, salt, garlic salt and pepper. Stir to cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese until well combined then remove from heat.
  • Spoon half of cauliflower mixture into each ramekin, using a spoon, press rice down firmly into the bottom of the ramekin.
  • Spoon half of the pizza sauce/marinara sauce over the cauliflower layer.
  • For Zucchini, you can add them raw if you’d like, but I give them a quick sauté. Place oil into a large saucepan over medium heat. When hot add zucchini, salt and pepper, stirring for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add evenly to each ramekin.
  • Top with quartered pepperoni slices (much easier to eat from a bowl when they are quartered) then top evenly with shredded mozzarella and bacon crumbles.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until hot and melted. Serve warm, being careful not to touch ramekin while still hot from oven.
