How Many Carbs in Cauliflower?
Cauliflower is a staple in low carb, keto diets. With it’s mild flavor and ability to take on a similar texture to rice, potatoes, and even pasta, it is incredibly versatile in low carb recipes. One of my favorite ways to cook with cauliflower is to give it all the delicious flavors of pizza. Even better, low carb pizza. Check out my Supreme Pizza Cauliflower Casserole Recipe.

- 1 large head cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
- 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil, melted (I use this brand)
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, or more to taste (I use this brand)
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 3 large sun-dried tomatoes, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1.5 ounces hard chorizo, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Arrange the cauliflower florets in a single layer across the baking sheet. Drizzle the melted butter over top, sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat.
- Roast the cauliflower on the top rack for 15 minutes.
- While the cauliflower is roasting, heat a large sauce pan over medium. To the pan, add the tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, bell pepper, chorizo, basil, and black pepper. Once the sauce is hot and starts to bubble slightly, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes. Transfer the sauce to a high powered blender or a food processor and pulse until smooth. Alternately, you can skip this step and leave it chunky.
- Pour the sauce over top of the cauliflower and roast for an additional 10 minutes.
- Remove the tray from the oven, sprinkle the cheese over top, and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
