Recipe: Egg White Pizza

ROCK ON: I made a low-cal, low-carb, high-protein mini-pizza this weekend!

3oz liquid egg whites
T Tastefully Simple Tuscany Bread Dipping Mix
1/4c spaghetti or pizza sauce
s Hormel turkey pepperoni
1/4c Daiya "cheese"

Pour your egg whites into a small pan over medium heat, sprinkle w/ spices, put the cover on, and keep an eye on it. When it's done (poofed up and solidified, only profesional & technical terms used 'round here), turn off the heat, spread your sauce, layer on the pepperoni, top with cheese, and put the cover back on. It's done when your cheese is melted; if it's not melting quickly, turn heat back on & it won't take long at all.

Here's the beauty: 289 calories - 14g fat - 15g carbs - 23g protein

Modify however you like. Any Italian spice would work, this was simply in the front of my cupboard. I meant to add green olives, but forgot. Turkey pepperoni gives you all the flavor for comparatively few calories (73 for 17 slices), but you could probably get even lower with Canadian bacon, eh? I used a Prego spaghetti sauce with sausage & garlic, and that sausage added some solid flavor.

This flavor combo could potentially be used to make a kick-ass egg bake, but I haven't tried that yet.
