These easy cauliflower pizza cups are a great low-carb snack option!

Feel free to switch up the pepperoni for any protein - prosciutto and chicken is a personal favorite! You can also pair them with a side salad as a main meal or add them to your lunchbox for a quick healthy energy boost.

What could be a good substitute for the eggs on this recipe?

I think that more shredded cheese like mozzarella should help keep them together.

I made this, and it tasted good but was not a firm muffin. Perhaps it was the altitude as I live just below 7000 ft. I used frozen, organic, riced cauliflower from Costco and added the eggs first, which caused them to clump because of the cold cauliflower.  Next time, I will add a second cup of cheese, use either fresh cauliflower or let it thaw, and add a fourth egg and scramble the eggs a bit before adding them last. It tased good, even my 14 year old son liked it.

Thank you for your feedback Kristy! I'd try one extra egg. It might be that the riced cauliflower had more water.
