Cauliflower Pizza Casserole

May 10, 2016 Recipes  No comments

I love pizza!!! That has been one of the hard things about going grain free. Pizza. I could eat it once or twice a day.

Sometimes you just get a need for pizza.

Imagine if a loaded deep-dish pizza had a three-some with baked ziti and a head of cauliflower. Their baby would look something like this. Cauliflower, homemade Italian sausage, pepperoni, veges, three kinds of olives, two kinds of cheese and more.

I like to make my own pork sausage.
