The Seahawks, even though I admit that I call them the Sea Chickens, are going to the  Super Bowl and considering they are the closest I have to a home football team, I’m rooting for them to win the game.  What’s a Super Bowl without pizza? I thought it would be fun to create a paleo pepperoni pizza tater tot version.   These are made with cauliflower so they’re low carb and dairy-free. but most importantly, they are delicious.

You can serve them with your favorite marinara sauce and you have a great snack for the game. I think I ate 5 before I was ready to burst.

Also, did you catch my first newsletter for my Cookbook?

Yield: 8

Pepperoni Pizza Tots

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour


  • 6 cups water
  • 2 lb cauliflower, remove leaves and cut into florets
  • 1 Tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 8 slices Applegate Pepperoni, diced


  1. Place the water in a large pan and bring to a boil, add the cauliflower and let cook for 4 minutes.
  2. Drain and let cool completely. Finely dice the cauliflower. Please note: You do NOT want to use your food processor because it will make a puree which won't work for this recipe.
  3. Add the diced cauliflower, coconut flour, the spices, and pepperoni to a large bowl and mix.
  4. Finally add the eggs and mix until well blended
  5. Scoop out a large spoonful and shape into tots. Place on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  6. Place in your oven at 350 degrees for 45 -50 minutes and serve with a marinara sauce. Your final product should be more golden than the photo, so don't worry if they are more browned - it just makes them taste better in my opinion.
