1/8 tsp salt


1/4 cup homemade tomato sauce


Cooking spray


1.6 oz turkey pepperoni slices, chopped

HOW TO MAKE IT


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Divide mixture evenly among 12 slots of a lightly greased standard-sized muffin pan. Press down lightly to form mini crusts. Bake for 20 minutes.


Top each mini cauliflower crust with tomato sauce, remaining cheese, pepperoni.


Bake until cheese is melted, about 5 to 7 minutes.
