Roasted Cauliflower Pizza Casserole

My kids really like cauliflower crust pizzas but this casserole just feels heartier and seems to stretch further with just one head....... I am doing basic instructions and you can modify it to your favorite pizza flavors!

1 large head of Cauliflower(mine was about 2.5 lbs)
2 TB olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced well

Basic Toppings:
2-3 cups Pizza Sauce (depends on your saucy factor, some like lite, some like extra!)
2 cups shredded mozzarella, (divided use)
Fresh Shredded Parmesan to taste

Topping Options Ideas:
Green Pepper
Roasted Red Pepper
Canadian Bacon
Banana Peppers

Or are you like me and and like a more unique pizza? I have many recipes on my blog and this recipe would work for just about all of them! You would just sub the sauce and cheese flavors for basic red sauce and moz... Take a look through and see if any appeal to you! LINK

Preheat oven to 425...Line a baking sheet with foil(and spray with cooking spray)
Cut cauliflower into bite-sized florets, toss with oil and minced garlic and place in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes, stirring about 1/2 way through until it is nicely browned.

Toss together the cauliflower, sauce, 1/2 the Mozzarella  and any toppings you choose. Pour into a 9x13 casserole dish. For this batch I actually split the recipe into 2 smaller pans and made it 1/2 Pepperoni and Spinach and  for the kids and 1/2 Tuscan Salami and Roasted Veggies for the hubby and I

 Top with remaining cheese(and a few extra toppings if you like!) and sprinkle with fresh parm...I usually add some Italian Seasonings and Red Pepper flakes too....

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until hot and bubbly, remove from oven and allow to set for 5 minutes before serving
