Clean Eat Recipe :: PIZZA!


This is, by far, the BEST clean recipe we have tried.  We were both doubting it but gave it a try and we are very glad we did!  The recipe is by Toni Cisneros (she gets all the credit!).  So maybe this picture isn't the best but take our word for it...go to your kitchen & make it NOW!  :-)



Ingredients:
1 lb ground chicken breast
Italian seasoning (we used 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp)
2 egg whites
1/2 cup oats
1 cup tomato/spaghetti sauce (organic or homemade)
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
***Your choice of clean toppings.  We have used spinach, red bell pepper, cucumber, onion, & red pepper flakes

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix the "crust" (ground chicken breast, Italian seasoning, basil, garlic powder, egg whites & oats) by hand.
3. Flatten the "crust" on a pizza stone or in a 9X13" pan.




4. Bake the "crust" at 350 degrees for 20 min.
5. Take out the "crust" & add the tomato/spaghetti sauce & spread evenly.
6. Add the cottage cheese on top of the tomato/spaghetti sauce & spread evenly.
7. Add your choice of toppings.




8. Place pizza back in the oven for 10 min or until the cheese is the consistency you prefer.
9. Enjoy!
  
He & She Tip: Mix all the spices in a separate bowl & taste test it until you find your desired flavor combo. This will also help to get all the flavors mixed before adding to the meat.

Gluten Free Version: Use Gluten-Free Rolled Oats as an alternative

    3. We made this pizza tonight. I added red pepper flakes to the chicken crust and to the sauce to spice it up a bit. We grilled onions and topped with yellow peppers and mushrooms. Can't wait to make this one again!

    4. I crave pizza now especially since I'm trying to eat better. And have managed to stay away so far. But, if I can find a healthier version I like, I can have it as much as I like. Will let you know how it turns out.

    1. I ended up salvaging my creation and it ended up really good! Even my boyfriend who can eat everything bad and still stay in shape liked it. I made it with extra lean ground turkey and topped it with olives, mushrooms and a few turkey pepperonis (for him :)). I am having leftovers for lunch today!

    2. That's great!! So glad you were able to save it and you still enjoyed it!

  6. where do you buy ground chicken breast!? Or do you do it yourself?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I believe most grocery stores have ground chicken breast now days. Should be near where the ground turkey is. If you can't find the chicken, you could always just go for the turkey. The taste will be similar. You could also have the butcher at your grocery store grind chicken breast for you too.

    2. Our grocery store never has ground chicken BREASTS they only have ground chicken (which is not the same thing). We have our store grind it for us but only ours will. We have tried at other stores but they have told us they are not allowed to. I believe if you have a KitchenAid mixer there is an attachment you can purchase to grind your own!

      Delete
    3. If you can't find it and don't have a kitchenaid attachment, a quick way to grind meats is to throw them in a food processor. I would cut it into chunks first then throw it in, and keep an eye on it so you don't over-process and turn it into total mush/sludge.

  7. Oh also...can you use steal cut oats in this instead!?

    1. It really depends on your calorie needs, but given the macros, 2 slices would be average.

  9. I am a health nut who has never been able to give up my once a week pizza night. You have MADE MY YEAR! Maybe even decade! I hate cottage cheese and loved it on this pizza. I made mine with sundried tomatoe, spinach, onion, red pepper and zucchini. I also made my sauce from scratch so I knew exactly what was going in to it. LOVE THIS! Husband approved!

    1. Oohh! Hadn't thought about the sundried tomatoes! So glad that you and your hubby both liked the pizza recipe!

  10. For anyone who is having trouble finding the ground chicken breast, I found it today at Aldi. Will be trying this recipe this week! Thanks!

  11. I tried this tonight and was pleasantly surprised how great it was. My husband and his brother loved it too. I put mushrooms, spinach and sundried tomatoes on ours! I've been eating clean and doing cross fit for about 4 weeks. However, Im not losing weight. It's extremely frustrating, mainly because my husband is.

    1. Shelly,

      We are so excited that you tried that our recipe! I love the pizza too!

      As far as your results, give it time. Are you tracking your calories and mets? This makes a HUGE difference. Be sure that you are drinking at least a gallon of water as well. Also, you are most likely lifting more than you have been - you are bound to be losing fat and building muscle with weighs more than fat... give it time!

      Keep us informed about your results!

  13. This is amazing, my wife I have been trying to loose weight for years now, to no avail. After browsing the "He And She" for the last few days we are definatly going to give healthy eating a try, as our new lifestyle. We love eating healthy foods, but we just have a bad habet of succumbing to "bad foods" and "cheat days". But we're going to start eating healthy today! We're going to start with groceries today and this healthy pizza when we get home for supper. It looks and sounds amazing!

  14. Love your recipes! Planning on making this tonight. Was wondering what your suggestion is regarding how thin/thick you make your "crust?"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You definitely don't want to roll it out too thin! (I made this mistake last week) I would shoot for at least 1/4" to about 1/2" in thickness.

      Delete
  15. This may be a silly question but is the chicken cooked or raw when it's incorporated into the crust mix?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Totally amazing!!! This was with out a doubt delish & so glad I made it!! You would have never known there was cottage cheese on it and when your family loves it (husband & 2 girls(6,3) you know its a keeper!!

    I just made it on a cookie sheet and in a square to fit the sheet.

    We did: spinach, bella mushrooms, sun dried tomato's.

  17. I made this tonight with fresh basil and red onion and served it with a lettuce salad. It was very good but I'm confused about the serving size. Should this be cut in to 6, 8, 10?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. We cut ours into 8 pieces. I usually eat 2 slices but Scott eats more! The macros listed are per slice (assuming 8 slices).

    1. Yes - And that would be the reason why it says recipe by Toni Cisneros on the picture & also the reason why it says "The recipe is by Toni Cisneros (she gets all the credit!)" in the description. Toni gave her permission for us to use her recipe. We would never post something that someone else came up with without giving them credit. Thank you.

  21. I'm making mine w/tofu instead of the cottage cheese because I'm allergic to milk. Hope it's as yummy as this one sounds!

  22. I made this a few times and love it! The last time I made it I used turkey and taco seasoning in the "crust", topped with cottage cheese and black beans, then back in the oven. Then topped with onions, tomato's, jalapeño's, lettuce, and taco sauce!

  24. What do you mean by Italian seasoning? Are you talking about the dried mixed herbs marketed as Italian seasoning, or the packets that you would normally add oil and vinegar to to make dressing?

    2. I have friends who have made cauliflower crust before and said even their kids loved it! I have slightly sauteed zucchini, placed it on a pan, covered it with sauce and pizza toppings. It definitely helped fill my pizza void :-).

  31. Anyway to make this vegetarian or vegan in the crust? Substitutions??

  32. This recipe is a lifesaver! I've been trying the cauliflower crusts, but haven't had the best of luck with them. I made this crust tonight with ground turkey burger. It holds together very well and tastes great. I can't wait to try it again with different combos of toppings. I only used 1/2 cup of cottage cheese with my tomato sauce and added zucchini, red onion, colored peppers, chopped spinach, shredded carrot, avocado, and mushrooms. My husband and I downed the whole thing :) Thank you! (By the way- love the website. I'll be using it more often.)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I made this recipe tonight and I really liked it!!! my "crust" was a little soft still but it was still very yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Made it today liked it topped one half w spinach and mushrooms and the other w pappers onions mushrooms for the the hubby! Also didn't have cottage cheese around so just used fat free cheddar! Any ideas how to make it a lil bit more crispier? Maybe bake the dough longer? Love the website thanks guys!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I made this today! instead of using whole oats, (I can't stand the texture), I blended together the 1/2 cup of oats and mixed it with 2 egg whites and extra lean ground turkey breast. I topped it with ragu pizza sauce, fresh tomatos, fresh basil, and cottage cheese. It was amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have now made this pizza twice ! My husband and I love it, makes us feel like we are eating the real deal. Mixed bell peppers and onion in the pasta sauce and topped it with crumbled turkey sausage, diced chicken, black olives and banana peppers. It was yummy!! :)

  37. One of our favorite dinners-since I am feeding a family. I double the ground turkey and cottage cheese and use a 9x13 plate. I also throw a couple of extra veggies under the cottage cheese as well.
