(Low Carb) Spinach Cheese “Bread”

image

So I am a girl (obviously…?) and I have my own way of determining if and what is healthy. I worked out today? Great I can have three chocolate cookies. I saw a skinny person eat it? Okay, so can I. I added spinach to it (pasta, pizza, sandwich), it is instantly healthy. Duh. 

Don’t judge me. 

(Low Carb Spinach Cheese “Bread”

(Revised from Food.com)

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper or non-stick cooking spray liberally.

Thaw spinach and squeeze out as much liquid as you can. You can either use a clean kitchen towel or use your hands. Pull apart/cut into small pieces. In a medium bowl add all the ingredients and stir to break up the spinach.

Put into the prepared pan and spread it evenly.

Bake for about 30-40 minutes until it is golden brown on the top (not just around the sides).

Remove from the oven and let cool. Cut into desired sizes and devour.

The original recipe says that you can use this for a pizza crust or “bread like necessities” but hell, this tastes good enough just to eat. It isn’t so much bread as it is just delicious spinach-cheesy-piece-of-yumminess. A thin frittata if you will. Eat it. Love it. Enjoy it.

  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots

  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 3-4 tablespoons cashews

Method:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spread the dough out evenly on your pizza pan. Par-bake the crust until it sets, just before it starts to brown, about 3-5 minutes. Spread the sweet Asian chili sauce all over the pizza crust. Even add the scallions, zucchini, carrots, red pepper flakes, bell pepper and chicken. Top with mozzarella cheese and cashews. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned.

This pizza is so yummy and has the great Asian flavor that you love!

Happy Cooking!
