Pare-Down Pizza Egg Dish

(4 servings)

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano leaves - crushed (or Italian seasoning)
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms - sliced (or 1 can sliced mushrooms - drained)
  • 1 medium green pepper (about 3 oz.) - cut into rings
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded low-moisture part-skim mozzarella cheese
Stir together flour, Parmesan cheese garlic salt and seasoning. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar at high speed until stiff but not dry, just until whites no longer slip when bowl is tilted.

Gently, but thoroughly, fold in reserved flour mixture. Spread evenly in greased 12-inch diameter pizza pan or 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Bake in preheated 375F oven until firm and delicately browned at edges about 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from oven. Spread with tomato sauce. Top with mushroom slices, pepper rings and mozzarella cheese. Return to oven and continue baking until cheese is melted and lightly browned, about 7 to 10 minutes. To serve, cut into wedges or squares.

This is good. Probably more of a dinner dish, this would make a fine fancy breakfast.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank smith0085 for this recipe.
