Cauliflower Pizza Casserole ... it's so cheesy !


"Cauliflower Pizza Casserole is a cheesy, easy vegetarian dish for dinner that you can fill with all your favourite pizza toppings!

Being vegetarian doesn’t mean you don’t want something hearty to eat, and vegetables like cauliflower are perfect for that. It gets soft and creamy but maintains a texture that makes this casserole not only delicious, but very filling.

Even better, the addition of mushrooms takes it over the top leaving you with a casserole that could easily replace Friday night pizza once in a while... and do you know that while this tastes delicious fresh, reheated it seemed that the flavours melded together even better and tastes so great!

Ingredients
Serves One
1 large cauliflower cut into florets
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cups marinara sauce
2 tomatoes 1 diced, 1 in sliced
1/2 medium onion sliced
1/2 bell pepper diced
1/2 cup mushrooms sliced
2 garlic cloves minced
1 1/4 cups mozzarella shredded

chopped parsley for topping (or herb of choice) (optional)

Method
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray or grease with oil.
2. Season cauliflower with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and roast for 20 minutes.
3. In a bowl, add the marinara sauce to the cauliflower and mix to coat. Add the rest of the ingredients, except parsley, sliced tomato and 1 cup of mozzarella cheese and stir together with a wooden spoon until add combined.
4. In a greased 8x8 baking pan, add the cauliflower mix and cover with the rest of the cheese. Top with tomato slices. Lower oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 25 minutes until cheese is melted and golden brown.

5. Remove from oven, top with chopped parsley and serve."

Looks so delicious. You made me in the mood for cauliflower gratin. This is timely recipe because fiber-rich cauliflower feeds benign bacteria in our intestine, which heighten our immunity to fight against the new corona-virus.
