Pizza-Cabbage Casserole (Grain-Free)

As previously stated, cabbage is one of my favorite comfort foods. And with finals week upon me, you can bet I’ve gone through a few heads already. In fact, to double-up the comfort, I’ve combined cabbage and pizza for the grand effect!

Bring it on finals, bring it on 😉

Pizza-Cabbage Casserole (Grain-Free)


4 cups green cabbage, chopped into bite-sized pieces

1 and 1/2 cups marinara/pizza sauce

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

3 sausage links (I just cut up thawed breakfast sausage)

mushrooms, sliced (however many you want)

2 tbsp garlic powder

2 tbsp onion powder

2 tbsp oregano

1 tsp salt



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine cabbage, sauce, 3/4 cup cheese, sausage, mushrooms, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir until evenly mixed and pour into a 8×8 baking dish. Top with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before eating.


Sausage and Pepper Cauliflower Pizza Casserole (Grain-Free)

I feel like I’ve been on a role lately with spur-of-the-moment recipe ideas. Most of the time I carefully plan what I want to make: ingredients, measurements, cooking times- all that jazz. Nope, not this week. It was all “Let’s poke my head in the fridge and see what I can find.” 

It’s good to see that school hasn’t completely killed my imagination 🙂 

So, I’ve restocked my recipe vault that was severely depleting and now have serval weeks-worth of recipes to share, beginning with this beauty:

1 large cauliflower, chopped into bite-sized pieces 

1 tbsp olive oil 

3 italian sausages, cooked (I always use leftover ones from the grill) 

1 large green bell pepper 

2 and 1/2 cups marinara sauce 

1 and 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided 

2 tbsp dried basil 

2 tsp dried oregano

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp onion powder

salt and pepper, to taste


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Toss cauliflower in olive oil, spread on a baking pan, and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop up sausage and bell pepper and place in a bowl. Add in marinara sauce, 1/2 cup cheese, basil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper and mix altogether. 

Once finished roasting, add in cauliflower and combine. Spread mixture into a 9×13 baking dish and top with remaining 1 cup of cheese. Place in a 350 degree oven for 20 more minutes.
