PIZZA!!! Low carb, low fat, low cal style!

Only 56 cals per slice!

Believe it. I made my own pizza today from scratch (even the dough, using no flour) and it was delicious. Time to share the goods.

INGREDIENTS:

Faux pizza dough/crust:

* 1/2 cup egg whites

* 3 TBS nonfat cottage cheese

* 6 TBS of ground flax seed

* 0.5 – 1 TBS of Splenda (I used 1 TBS and thought it was a little “too” sweet. If you have a sweet tooth, go for it, if not, lower the amount here.)

* 1/4 tsp baking powder

* cooking spray for baking pan

For toppings:

* I used 1/2 cup of tomato sauce, about 2 oz of shredded chicken breast, and 6 oz of red and green bell peppers. I skipped the cheese this time, but feel free to add in or take out whatever you want! It’s your pizza!

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 300F. Mix all of the pizza crust ingredients together in a bowl until smooth. You’ll still see cottage cheese chunks. If this bothers you, you can blend the mixture, but I thought it gave my “faux dough” a nice look.

2. Spray a baking pan with your cooking spray and the pour the batter on. Smooth out.

3. Place the pan into the oven for about 15 to 20 min or until firm. You want to make sure your pizza crust is more on the dry side than moist side because after the toppings come on, some of that moisture will soak into the faux bread.

4. Once your crust is done, slather a good amount of tomato or marina sauce on top and sprinkle with your fave pizza toppings.

5. Slice up and enjoy!

TASTE:

I loved my fake crust!!! It was amazing. Next time I will make this using only 1/2 TBS of sugar. I felt like it was too sweet. It was still good though. Can’t wait to make this again with mushrooms, onions, and roasted tomatoes. OMG yum!

Comments

  1. This was really disgusting…. I’m so sorry to say! It was soggy, even after being in the oven for almost an hour. I might have done something wrong, but the instructions were pretty straight forward, and I honestly can’t imagine making it another way and having it taste any better.

  2. When you put on your toppings do you need to put it back in the oven or do you just put them on and then eat it right away?

  3. If I want to put cheese and stuff on it that I want to have warm and melted, how should i do then? Should i lay my toppings on my the dough before i put it in the oven?
    Thanks cassey for being so great. I love your recipies and workout videos. Your talk under the videos gets me throught.

  4. Mine came out soggy :-( im doing something wrong. I am using the ingredients in the right amounts, i cooked for 20 mins but it was wet so put back for a further 5 mins. The base was about half cm thick and soggy. Do you use a metal dish because I didnt? Any ideas what im doing wrong?

  5. Instead of cottage cheese I used yogurt and it came out delish :) a bit sour, because I didn’t use any sugar, but still really really really good.

  6. This pizza is delish! I used the shredded chicken breast, onions and red and green bell pepper for the toppings. Its rare to find fitness and healthy recipes all in one blog and its made it so easy to stay on track. Thanks Cassey!

  7. I really want to try this! But I don’t have any flaxseed. Is there a good substitute for it?

  8. Made this last night! Lovely stuff. I topped mine with chicken and sweetcorn today, lovely lunch :) Thanks!
