Cauliflower Calzones


large head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/4 c. finely grated Parmesan
clove garlic, minced
2 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c. pizza sauce
1/2 c. pepperoni
1 tbsp. finely sliced basil



  1. Preheat oven to 425º and line a baking sheet with parchment. On a box grater or in a food processor, grate cauliflower and transfer to a large bowl. Microwave on high, 8 minutes. Drain thoroughly with paper towels or a cheesecloth until mixture is dry.
  2. Add egg, ½ cup mozzarella, Parmesan and garlic powder to cauliflower bowl and season with salt and pepper. Mix until combined.
  3. Form cauliflower into circle shapes on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Spread pizza sauce over half of each round. Sprinkle with mozzarella and top with pepperoni and basil. Fold the cauliflower in half to cover the cheese and pepperoni. Return to oven and bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 more minutes.
