A girl I work with came in last week and told me about how yummy these were, so of course I had to try! Welll the Dashing Dish has done it again! She is very, AND I MEAN VERY, good at creating healthy and yummy recipes!
I made these last night and I used two different recipes, basically I used the one below (from the dashing dish) but I DOUBLED the recipe!! So it made 24, plenty for all 4 of us! I also added salt to mine! I used 1 whole egg and 1 egg white in mine. I also used shredded Parmesan and the green bottle Parmesan (I mixed them,to equal my 1/2 cup) The other recipe used thyme instead of basil. I did like the other recipe and didn’t put in turkey pepperonis in the actual pizza bite. I only put them on top of some pizza bites. (I was worried they might be to rubbery, so I wanted to try them plain first)! We also added mild peperoncinis to the tops of them (Russell put the whole pepper on top, not me…mine was just a sliver – it definitely gave it the kick it needed) I cooked mine for 30 mins, I was scared of browning too much but I will probably keep in just a little longer next time. I did like the other recipe and sprayed the pan with canola oil and put a little water in the bottom of the mini muffin pan so that the spray wouldn’t burn in the oven. I used my ninja to chop up the cauliflower, I had to do it two separate times since I doubled the mixture. The boys liked and Russell and I were soo full! I ate 9 with a small side salad and could barely breathe! They are great leftovers as well, for snack or a meal. I like them plain, but really liked them with the pizza sauce!
