3 Ingredient Breakfast Pizza “Crust”

With all of this “healthy eating” stuff Ray and I have been doing lately, I’ve really been missing our pizza nights.  I’m a total creature of habit and I love traditions, so not having one of our favorite weekly meals has actually been difficult for me.  It sounds silly, but it’s totally a mental thing.

To make a different version that fits within our “good life decisions” diet, I decided to make a different crust to create a healthier option.  Although, after making this dish, we realized that we were essentially having a Brinner (breakfast for dinner.)  It was delicious, but definitely fit our description of a breakfast meal more than our traditional dinners.

If you’re on the look-out for a healthy pizza option, then this is as easy as it’s going to get.  Plus, we made it into a build-your-own pizza night, so it was a fun activity, too!  (Please note, this is an updated version of a recipe I found on The Big Apple Mama, though her’s is more focused on being Paleo-friendly if that’s your jive.)

3 Ingredient Breakfast Pizza “Crust”

Prep time: 5 minutes; Cook time: 20 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes

Serves: 2

Ingredients

  • 8 egg whites (4 egg whites = 3/4 cup if you’re using a carton)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond flour

Materials Needed

  • 20” skillet

Directions

  1. Heat the skillet on high until it is completely warm.  While it is heating, whisk all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.  Once they are well mixed, combine in an assortment of spices that interest you.  For our pizza crusts, I tore some fresh basil leaves, and we added in salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.
  2. Once the skillet is heated, lower the heat to medium.  Pour in about 1/4 of the mixture and allow to sit for 2-4 minutes or until the “crust” starts to bubble up on the top and it is slightly browned on the bottom side.  Flip and repeat the waiting until both sides are slightly browned and your crust is not runny.  This will make ~4 crusts.
  3. Allow to cool for a few minutes and top with your favorite toppings.  For our pizza bar I included a large sliced tomato, a sausage that I sliced into small pieces, fresh basil leaves, fresh shredded mozzarella, and more crushed red pepper (never enough.)  Enjoy!

The end result was delicious, healthy, and perfectly filling.  I already can’t wait to make this for weekend brunches with a mimosa on the side.

    Yum! Do you think this would work with coconut flour or do you think that would taste weird?

      So good, right!?

      I bet it would work! The only reason that I used almond flour was because it’s what I had in the house. I’d definitely give it a shot. 🙂

    What a wonderful idea! I love pizza a little too much so I feel ya when you say you miss it! My husband and I went vegan this year so we have been struggling, but then we found Daiya which is made from arrowroot and tastes and melts just like cheese! It is our new obsession and making our own pizza has become both healthy and fun again! Love your take as well! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

      No way, that’s quite the change! I’m obsessed with Tuffuti Cuties (spelling?), so I guess I sometimes pick vegan products without even meaning to, ha! I’ll definitely have to check out Daiya. 🙂
