Deep Dish Pizza (C2)

Goodness, goodness, goodness -- such a wonderful dish and all within C2 limits!

The only thing to be cautious on is what toppings you use, make sure they are compliant for the cycle you're in. Do not use the olives or sausage given as choices in the recipe.

Maria Mind Body recipe for Deep Dish Pizza


  1. The link wouldn't work for me :-(

  2. Well rats. I've had a few recipes where either the recipe name changed or the website just flat out disappeared. I'll see if I can't locate it--if I do, I'll post something here to let you know.

  3. It worked fine for me, but does open up a link to print it. Here's the recipe:


    6 eggs, separated
    ½ tsp cream of tartar
    ½ cup Jay Robb unflavored egg white Or whey protein
    3 oz cream cheese, softened (OR reserved yolks if dairy free)
    Spices (if desired)

    Low-Sugar Marinara (Mario Batali Brand = no soybean oil and no sugar)
    Bolinski's organic chicken sausage
    8 ounces Mozzarella Cheese/Goat Cheese/Feta

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Separate the eggs and whip the whites and cream of tartar until very
    stiff (I use a stand mixer and let it go for 5 minutes). Slowly sift in the protein powder to the whites.
    2. Using a spatula, gently fold the cream cheese (or reserved yolks if dairy free) into the whites.
    3. Spray a lasagna pan or cast iron skillet with coconut oil spray and spoon the mixture into it. Bake for
    18 minutes.
    4. Remove from oven and top with your favorite toppings (eliminate cheese if dairy free). Return to oven
    and bake until cheese melts and starts to brown.
