About this Recipe
My husband is the chef in our house, and he loves to learn about various cooking techniques. When he saw the crust I was making before, he decided to help me create something even better. While he didn’t invent this recipe, he did find an oatmeal crust recipe online, and modified it to be FTDI. It not only tastes wonderful, but it holds toppings like a champ.
- 4oz oat flour
- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp himalayan salt
- 1/4 cup water
This recipe will make two crusts. Each crust is a full carb portion, and the equivalent of 1.5oz protein, due to the egg whites. Split the recipe in half by weight before cooking to ensure that your portions are correct. Instead of water, you could experiment with other liquids, such as the stock leftover from cooking your chicken breasts. You can also adjust the salt to taste, as well as add in your own seasonings, such as oregano.
Step by Step Instructions
Combine dry ingredients (oat flour, baking powder, and salt) in a bowl, and mix together well.
Add wet ingredients (egg whites, water) to dry ingredients. Mix until smooth. You will have a thick batter consistency at this point.
This recipe makes two crusts, so now you need to divide your batter in half by weight. I prefer to weigh the whole portion, divide in half, and then pour half of the batter into a new bowl.
Lay some parchment paper on a baking sheet and spray lightly with pam.
Pour one portion onto the parchment paper. When pouring, you want your batter to end up in a sort of circular blob shape. Don’t worry about spreading it around yet.
Pick up your pan with two hands and tap the pan against the counter top to help disperse the mixture. This creates an evenly spread batter so you don’t have thick and thin spots.
Cook the crust in the oven for 16-17 minutes at 400 degrees.
Cook the second crust and store in a sealed container in the fridge until needed.
Top with your FTDI pizza topping ingredients and warm your pizza in the oven.
