For Toddlers and Kids, A Hidden Vegetable Recipe!

To this low carb pepperoni pizza casserole, adding cauliflower rice makes it easy to get kids to eat their veggies! Additionally, adding a bit of cauliflower rice is a good way to hide vegetables in a recipe on a keto diet. They’ll never know! This casserole is layered with pepperoni, sautéed ground beef and onions, tomatoes, cheese and cauliflower rice. In this recipe, we’ve added some optional spices, as usual, our homemade Italian seasoning.
To bake – 30 minutes at 400 degrees doesn’t take long. And leftovers are fabulous.

Try a ground sausage pizza casserole if you don’t have ground beef thawed.
Add peppers and mushrooms to your pizza casserole if you want more veggies.
Try adding spinach and sliced, fresh mozzarella if you want a fancy pizza casserole.

You can make your own pizza sauce if you don’t want to add tomatoes/prefer a sauce. Actually, because I’m not a garlic person (shock!), I usually make my own, and I like to control my flavors. At making your own, try your hand – we like this Atkins pizza sauce recipe and what makes it more “pizza sauce” and less “spaghetti sauce” is adding the sweetness.
