If you’re looking for comfort food, this is it. It’s kind of a pizza casserole, because it’s so thick you need a knife and fork to eat it. Ground meat, peppers, onion, cheese and bacon is the perfect comfort-food combination.
If you haven’t tried making a cauliflower pizza crust yet, I highly recommend it. I like it way better than my almond flour crusts.
Add cauliflower and boil for about 7 minutes, until just soft
Drain and allow to cool for 10 - 15 minutes
Wrap drained cauliflower in a clean dishtowel and squeeze out as much water as possible, while at the same time mashing up the cauliflower. You should have the consistency of mashed potatoes when you are done.
Add cauliflower to a bowl
Add egg, cheese, garlic, and salt
Mix well and form the dough into a ball
Spread parchment paper on baking sheet
Place dough in center of parchment paper and press until you have a thin circular shape
Bake for 35 minutes, until golden and edges are crispy
Add ground meat, garlic, and salt to a large pan over medium heat
Separate meat into crumbles using spatula and cook until cooked through
Remove from heat - remove excess fat if necessary
Spread sauce over cooked cauliflower crust
Add meat, top with peppers, onions, bacon, and cheese
Cook for 20 - 30 minutes until peppers and onions are soft
