One large head of cauliflower–trimmed into small florets
1/2 Cup plus 2 Tbs. Parmesan Cheese–Grated, Divided
1 Tbs. plus 1 Tbs. Italian Seasoning–Divided
3 Gloves Garlic–Minced (If using minced garlic from a jar, simply use 1 1/2 tsp.)
3 Tbs. Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese–Shredded, Divided (I used 2 cups)
1 Cup Spaghetti, Marinara, or Pizza Sauce (I used spaghetti)
4 slices of Canadian Bacon, cut into quarters
Pepperoni (amount depends on your preference)
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, Diced
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, Diced
1 oz Onion, Diced
10 Black olives, Sliced
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine cauliflower, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 Tbs. Italian Seasoning, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Line in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake on the top rack for 30 minutes.
Once the cauliflower is done cooking, transfer it back to the mixing bowl. In the mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup pizza sauce and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Toss until the ingredients are well combined and cauliflower is coated.
Next, transfer the cauliflower mixture to a 9×13 casserole dish and layer on the remaining sauce and mozzarella cheese. Then top with Canadian bacon, pepperoni, bell peppers, onion and olives. Finally, sprinkle the remaining 2 Tbs. Parmesan cheese and 1 tsp. Italian seasoning over the top.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes.
