Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

Crust

1 lb. raw lean ground chicken (at least 96% lean)

2 tbsp. (about 1 large) egg white or fat-free liquid egg substitute

2 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. black pepper

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

 

Toppings

1/4 cup light/reduced-fat cream cheese, room temperature

2 tbsp. Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, or more for topping

1/4 cup finely chopped carrots

1/4 cup finely chopped celery

1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 tbsp. chopped scallions

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Thoroughly mix crust ingredients in a large bowl. Shape into a circle on the parchment-lined baking sheet, about 1/4-inch thick and 10 inches in diameter.

Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix cream cheese with hot sauce until mostly smooth and uniform.

Place carrots and celery in a small microwave-safe bowl with 2 tbsp. water. Cover, and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Drain excess water.

Carefully drain excess liquid from the baking sheet, and thoroughly blot crust dry.

Spread cream cheese sauce over crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with mozzarella, carrots, and celery.

Bake until mozzarella has melted, about 5 minutes.

Top with scallions.
