TRY ME! Clean Eating Pizza/Crust Recipe

  • 1/4 cup dry oats
  • 1 TBS ground flax seed
  • 1 egg
  • 4 TBS marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 1/2 cup nonfat/lowfat cottage cheese
  • sprinkles of frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • several pieces of jalapeno
  • any other veggie or lean protein you want to add – mushrooms, onions, olives and chicken breast are all great choices
1. In a tin pan, mix up the oats, egg, and flax seed until it covers the bottom of a tin pan. I used a pie tin pan. No oil required! Place in oven at 350F for about 15-20 min until firm.
2. In the mean time, microwave the frozen spinach. Once thawed, pour out excess water and pat dry with paper towel.
3. Also, squeeze the cottage cheese curds with a cheese cloth or a few layers of paper towel. You want to get all of the water out so that it doesn’t make you pizza soggy.
4. Chop your desired veggies.
5. Once crust is firm, take the crust out of the oven. Slather with tomato sauce.
6. Then pile on the cottage cheese and veggies!
7. Place back in oven for about 15-20 min keeping temp at 350F. You can do 375F if you like your crust crispy.
8. Once your ticker dings, take out, slice and enjoy. YOU CAN DEFINITELY EAT THE WHOLE THING :)

About 300 calories for you own whole pizza pie…nearly 30g of protein and 8g of fiber. WOW!! You need to try this! ENJOY~
