We have shared our homemade tomato sauce ingredients below too, if you would like to use that. If you are looking for some low carb suggestions, then a few of our favourites would be: shredded chicken, feta, bacon, chorizo, red onion, capers, black or green olives, sun-dried tomatoes, gherkins, anchovies, tuna, pepper or how about a few dollops of homemade pesto? If you choose to slice this pizza up and share it with a friend, then serve with a delicious salad or some roasted veggies. It is delicious straight from the oven or enjoyed cold straight from your lunchbox!
PAREMESAN PIZZA BASE INGREDIENTS
- parmesan (50g)
- egg whites (2 large)
- ground almonds (30g)
- baking powder (1 tsp)
TOMATO SAUCE INGREDIENTS
- tin organic tomatoes (400ml)
- paprika (1 tsp)
- sea salt (1 pinch)
- garlic (1 tsp, minced)
- mixed herbs (1 tsp)
Preheat oven to 180c.
Combine whisked egg whites, ground almonds, baking powder and parmesan and mix together.
Carefully spoon on to greaseproof paper in a pizza shape.
Flatten with your hands if easier. It is a little wet. I find that using the back of a spoon of popping some water on my hand to smooth it out helps.
Bake for 10 mins.
Add tomato sauce, toppings and then bake for further 5 mins.
SAUCE TOPPING METHOD
Bubble up all the sauce ingredients and then reduce to a simmer until thick. This should take approximately 15-20 minutes.
You can keep it in the fridge in a glass jar or Tupperware for up to 7 days.
Best cooked before you put on the pizza and left to cool.
