Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza Bites

Many folks are cutting back on gluten and carbs for their health. For some time, cauliflower has been used to replace carb-heavy foods like potatoes and grains. Remember creamy cauliflower mash with garlic ?  You’ve probably also heard of cauliflower pizza where cauliflower is used for the crust. Today I’m sharing cauliflower pizza bites which  are similar, and a crowd-pleasing fun food to eat.

The easiest way to make this is with a food processor. If you don’t have one, you can grate the cauliflower into fine pieces but it is more work. Process the cauliflower until it is fine. Steam until soft. Cool. Squeeze out all the fluid with a clean cloth. Now you’re ready to make tasty, cheesy pizza bites which are a great appetizer, party food, and even a main course for dinner. If you like tomato and cheese, this is a great little bite of happiness.
