What other toppings can you add?

The beauty of this dish is that it’s so easily customisable with all your favorite toppings. Try it with:

  • Bell peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • Pineapple
  • Bacon
  • Jalapeños
  • Blue cheese
  • And anything else you fancy!

Can you make it ahead of time?

You can make the pizza base a few hours ahead of time and add the toppings, then keep it covered in the fridge until you are ready to bake and serve it.

This dish is also perfect for meal prep and taste even better the second day.

Can you freeze it?

It’s best not to freeze the cooked casserole, but you can make the base, let it cool, add the toppings and then freeze it. Wrap it in foil and place in a freezer bag and it will keep for a couple of months.

You can then cook it right from frozen, just add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Use an oven-safe skillet for this recipe. I use my cast-iron.
  • This dish produces a lot of liquid due to the cauliflower. Some of the liquid will soak up while it cools.
  • Cover this skillet with your favorite toppings.
