Oopsie Bread Mini Pizzas (aka Cloud Bread)

Trying to eat less carbs but still crave pizza? Story of my life. Cloud bread pizzas to the rescue!

Remember when I used to participate in something called the Secret Recipe Club? It’s not reviving to it’s full form but we decided to get the gang back together for a one time reunion! I was assigned to Tina Marie’s blog The Gluten-Free Foodsmith. In all my years participating in the Secret Recipe Club when it was still active, I don’t think I was ever paired up with Tina Marie so I’m glad to have had this chance! A few recipes that were contenders included her lentil burgers because I keep saying I need to cook with more lentils, cashew brittle because there’s a local company that makes cashew brittle in Columbus and I’m now addicted, and avocado lime pie which will definitely need to happen once it warms up.

In the end I decided to make her Oopsie Bread Pizzas. Oopsie bread is a low carb bread, also known as cloud bread, that I have been meaning to try for quite some time. It seems simple enough, just beat some egg whites into stiff peaks, fold them into a eggs yolk/cream cheese mixture, and bake.

Unfortunately, despite my efforts to treat the whites with the upmost tenderness when folding them I ended up with pretty runny batter and thus pretty flat bread. Less of a cloud and more pancake-like. I almost scrapped it and started pondered a different recipe but then remembered that in her post she actually used them to make pizzas and these flat versions were perfect for mini pizzas! When I informed Bob there was a change in plans for dinner from veggie burgers to mini pizzas he did not complain. He may grow tired of eating pretty much anything after the second day in a row but give that man pizza and he could live off nothing else.

But I digress. We ended up making 3 mini pizzas each topped with whatever our hearts desired. I stuck with cheese, fresh basil, and pepperoni but Bob added some pickled jalapenos to his. While he actually prefers the cauliflower crust if we are going to make a low-carb pizza, I thoroughly enjoyed this version especially because it’s less ingredients and easier to make. However, the remaining 4 breads also turned into more mini pizzas over the weekend when I visited a friend in Chicago and left Bob to his own devices. Like I said, pizza diet.
