Cauliflower Casserole: Supreme Pizza Style

We love the cauliflower casserole, but sometimes loaded faux-tatoes get boring.  Switching it up is always interesting.  I have made a jalapeno popper variation and a buffalo chicken rendition, but I do believe supreme pizza toppings give the cauliflower casserole my favorite flavor.  Whether it be because we haven't had pizza in three months or that this was an awesome way to use some ingredients I had on hand, I would highly recommend trying this one out.

Cauliflower Casserole: Supreme Pizza Style

1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets (it is important that you use fresh cauliflower, not frozen)
1 bag fire roasted red, green, and yellow peppers with onions (you could use fresh if desired)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 cup no sugar added pizza sauce
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
Canadian Bacon (optional)
Pepperoni (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

On a baking pan, arrange the cauliflower in a single layer, drizzling with olive oil and topping with a sprinkle of Parmesan, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.  Bake for 20 minutes.

In a skillet, saute the blend of peppers and onions with the garlic.

Once you remove the cauliflower from the oven, place the it in a large mixing bowl, an mix with the remaining Parmesan and pizza sauce.

Spread the mixture in the bottom of a prepared baking dish. Top with the sauteed peppers and onions, Canadian Bacon, pepperoni, and any other toppings you want to add.  Sprinkle with Mozzarella and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese begins to brown.
