Cloud bread is huge at the minute, its light , easy to make and I think it makes the perfect base for a healthy pizza. I tried this cloud bread pizza, recipe a few times, to (try) prefect it before I posted it. The first attempt, it tasted a bit bland, so I,ve added loads of Italian flavour,s to the base, also I think leaving the base in the oven for and hour with the oven off, is vital if you don,t want (in the words of Mary Berry) a soggy bottom.. And lastly its really important to use grease proof paper.. (or else you may end up with scrambled eggy bread (ahem.. that didn’t happen me) 😉
“Yum” loved cloud bread pizza, “One yummy daddy” brought some to work for lunch (i,ll not tell you what the rest of the lad,s said to him”) its not the most manly lunch is it.. as always I think it’s a great alternative to a takeaway if you’re trying to stick to a healthy diet.. eat it cold or the nest day as it tastes a million times better x
Any of you Slimming world guys this recipe for cloud bread pizza is free using Quark. (that,s a whole pizza). Using the cheddar cheese as your healthy extra a.. with all your free favourite toppings..

and your favorite toppings.. We like ham, peppers and I like mushrooms and chili (yum doesn’t) but you can do half and half x
Pre heat oven to 150 c
Get a pizza tin (I don,t have a pizza tin so I use a Quiche tin ) and line it with greaseproof paper (it,s important to line it)

add the yolk mixture in tablespoons to the egg whites and mix with a butter knife, mix it as lightly as you can..
Using a large metal spoon add your mixture to your lined dish..

Turn the oven off , but leave the base in the oven for another hour.. this cooks the inside without burning it..
Cloud bread pizza tastes so much better the next day or when cooled down (eaten when hot they have a meringue like texture.. x .. it completely changes in consistency when cooled down
also another sprinkle of oregano is nice but optional.. with the tomato puree
