Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

Crust

2 cups spinach leaves

1/4 cup (about 2 large) egg whites

2 tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 tbsp. whole-wheat flour

1 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/8 tsp. onion powder

1/8 tsp. garlic powder

 

Topping

1/4 cup canned crushed tomatoes

1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

1/4 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

3 tbsp. shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place all crust ingredients in a food processor. Puree until uniform.

Pour crust batter onto the center of the sheet. Using a spatula, form it into a circle, about 1/4-inch thick and 6 inches in diameter.

Bake until top has browned and edges are slightly crispy, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder. Mix well.

Remove sheet from oven. Spread seasoned tomatoes over crust, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Bake until cheese on top has melted and crust is mostly crispy, 8 - 10 minutes.
