Cook: 30 minutes
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
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
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.
