    Ingredients
    Serves: 12

    • 275g grated mozzarella cheese, divided
    • 40g freshly grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 egg

    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a muffin tin with baking parchment squares.
    2. Grate cauliflower into a microwave-safe bowl using a fine grater. Chop up any remaining pieces that are too small to grate.
    3. Microwave cauliflower until soft and tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Pour cauliflower into a clean tea towel; cool until easily handled, 15 to 20 minutes.
    4. Wrap the tea towel around the cauliflower and squeeze out as much liquid as possible; the drier the cauliflower is, the better it will hold together as a base once mixed with the other ingredients.
    5. Combine cauliflower, 100g of the mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder in a large bowl.
    6. Scoop cauliflower base mixture into prepared muffin tin, dividing the mixture evenly among the holes. Pat down cauliflower mixture with the back of a spoon, making it compact.
    7. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
    8. Spoon a small amount of pizza sauce onto each cauliflower base. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.
    9. Bake until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Let sit in pan for 5 minutes before moving each bite to a cooling rack. Let cool for 10 minutes. Peel parchment paper squares off the bases and serve on a platter.

    Tip:

    If you've got a food processor, cut the cauliflower into smaller chunks and process until fine.
