Pizza Casserole with Cauliflower : A Cheesy, Easy Vegetarian Dish

Dear fellow blogger as I post this today (11 May), along with many of you I am still having problems with leaving comments on so many blogs, it is very frustrating, and I hope that blogger will sort it out soon, refer to this post here

In the meantime I hope you may enjoy todays recipe suggestion…

“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!

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)
