Total time
Serves: 12 pizza cups
  • 1 medium or large head of cauliflower
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 ham slices deli ham
  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Pizza or marinara sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare the cauliflower crust: Chop the cauliflower into small florets. Place ⅓ of the florets into a food processor. Give it a few quick pulses and then process for about 10 seconds until the cauliflower resembles rice kernels. Pules a few more times until the cauliflower begins to form a paste. Transfer the cauliflower to a large microwave safe bowl. Repeat this process 2 more times with the remaining florets.
  3. Cook and drain the cauliflower: Microwave the cauliflower for 4 minutes until soft. Let the cauliflower cool for a few minutes. Place the bowl in the fridge or freezer to expedite. Drain the excess moisture from the cauliflower by placing it in a mound in the middle of a kitchen towel. Gather the towel into a ball and twist to wring out every last bit of moisture. When you think you can't wring out any more, keep wringing! Place the cauliflower back into the bowl and add the seasonings and eggs. Mix well with a large spoon.
  4. Prepare the pizza cups: Press 1 ham slice into each well of a 12-muffin tin. Spoon an equal amount of cauliflower mixture into each ham cup. Top each ham cup with an equal amount of chopped pineapple.
  5. Bake the pizza cups: Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the cauliflower is fully cooked and the ham is crisp on the edges. At the 20-minute mark, press down on the cauliflower crust. If it’s still moist and soft, keep baking. When finished baking, sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top of each cup. Place back in the oven for a couple minutes so the cheese melts. Serve with pizza sauce or marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
