Dukan Pizza Margherita

Earlier tonight I was in the lab (aka my kitchen) determined to create a Dukan-friendly pizza crust. I mean, I’ve seen a few around the blog world before but some required some schnazzy equipment while others weren’t quite perfected. I wanted to create a recipe that was simple and easy; just as pizza is supposed to be!

This almost never happens to me but I actually made a decent (or at least Bob and my definition of decent) recipe on the first try! Dare I say it, it may even be considered good! Once again, this never happens to me. I fail at a recipe at least once every other day and my kitchen looks like WWIII after dinner each night.

Give it a try, I would LOVE to get an outside perspective on this recipe!

Mini Dukan Pizza Margherita

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbs oat bran
  • 2 tbs fat free cream cheese
  • 1 ts baking powder
  • 3 very thin slices of tomato
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2-3 tbs reduced fat parmesan or mozzarella (or both!)
  • dried or fresh basil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees.
  2. Whisk together egg white, oat bran, cream cheese, and baking powder.
  3. Heat pan to medium-low heat with cooking spray.
  4. Pour in mixture to form a 4-5 inch circle.
  5. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned and can be handled.
  6. Put crust in the oven directly on the rack.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until firm. Flipping after 5 minutes.
  8. Remove crust from oven and add garlic, cheese, basil and tomato slices.
  9. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes.

Of course, if you like the crust, the possibilities will be endless. You can change the toppings up and make any kind of pizza you want! For example, I made a clam & garlic pizza and one topped with prosciutto & herbs as pictured below.
