1 tbsp Olive Oil
8 oz Mushrooms, sliced
1 Green Pepper, cut into bite-size pieces
12 oz Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1.5 c Low Carb Pasta Sauce, we use Rao’s Homemade Marinara
1/4 c Parmesan cheese, powdered
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
Add the cauliflower into a microwavable bowl and add 1 cup of water. Put it inside the microwave and heat it for about 3 minutes.
Drain and use paper towels to pat dry the cauliflower.
Prepare the oven and preheat to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F.
Place a large skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.
Add the Italian sausage and cook for 15 minutes or until brown. Remove from the skillet and discard any excess grease.
Add the mushrooms and sauté until soft. Remove them from the skillet as well.
Apply cooking spray in a 13×9-inch casserole dish.
Add half a cup of the sauce and spread it on the bottom of the prepared dish.
Add the cauliflower into another mixing bowl as well as the green peppers, Italian sausage, and mushrooms. Toss everything until well combined.
Spread half of the mixture over the sauce.
Spread another half a cup of the sauce over the meat mixture.
Top everything with half of the pepperonis and mozzarella cheese. Repeat the process until everything is arranged in layers.
In a mixing bowl, add the Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
Sprinkle the mixture on top of the casserole.
Top everything with the rest of the pepperoni.
Place it inside the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes or until done.
