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
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
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.
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.
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.
