These turned out awesome! The pepperoni on the bottom got nice and crispy while the cauliflower and ricotta filling got crispy on the outside and nice and ooeey gooeey in the middle! This was a great way to squeeze lots of extra veggies into the kids (and adults). Try these as is, or dipped in your favorite marinara sauce. They are delicious!
*If you have never made your own Ricotta cheese I recommend you try to. It is so easy, much less expensive, and you know exactly what quality product you are working with!*
Crispy Primal Lasagna Bites
4 C Cauliflower- mashed (1 head)
1 C Mashed Sweet Potato
1 C Ricotta (I make my own, but you can find a good quality at several stores)
2 1/2 Tbsp Dried Oregano
2 Tbsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 lb Nitrate Free Pepperoni (The large slice ones work better)- 1/3 of it diced up, 2/3 of it left in whole slices (about 30 slices left whole)
Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the whole pepperoni slices.
Place pepperoni slices on 2 cookie sheets (I used a silpat mat on one and one without and it didn't seem to make a difference).
