Cauliflower Pizza Steaks | Boys Ahoy

Roasted Cauliflower Pizza Steaks (with sun dried tomatoes + toasted pine nuts)


1 large head cauliflower

3-4 tbs extra virgin olive oil

8-10 oz pizza or marinara sauce

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes

pepperoni slices

salt and pepper


preheat oven to 420

Remove the leaves and trim the stem off of the cauliflower. Place it stem-side down, and slice it once down the middle to divide it in half.

Slice each halve into two 1/2 inch slices. (save the end pieces for snacking later or just discard)

Line a baking sheet with parchment and lay the cauliflower steaks on the baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over each of them, generously coating. Season with a little salt and pepper.

Roast for 20-30 minutes in the oven at 425, or until desired tenderness.

Remove from oven. Spread a heaping spoonful of pizza sauce over each cauliflower steak. Top with shredded mozzarella cheese, sundried tomatoes, pepperoni slices, and a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts.

Place back in the oven to broil for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Remove from oven and serve!


to toast pine nuts: heat a small skillet over medium heat. add 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts and saute for 2-3 minutes, gently stirring continuously until they've reached a golden color. remove from heat and set aside.
