Atkins Pizza Low Carb Recipe

Atkins White Pizza

With three different cheeses and fresh broccoli florets, this healthy Atkins pizza recipe is like a little slice of heaven.A delicious change of pace from tomato-topped pizzas. If you prefer, substitute chopped spinach or Swiss chard for the broccoli.

Ingredients

1 box (12.6 oz) Atkins Quick and Easy Country White Bread Mix
5 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 cups cooked broccoli florets
3/4 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. dried oregano

Directions

Combine bread mix and yeast in a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups warm water and 3 tablespoons olive oil. Mix with a spoon to form a soft dough. Knead gently for one minute; shape into a ball. Cover with plastic, and let rise for 1 hour or until dough is doubled in size.

While dough is rising, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic 30 seconds, until starting to color. Add broccoli and cook 2 minutes, until heated through. Remove from heat; stir in ricotta cheese.

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Shape pizza dough into a 14 round and transfer to a wire mesh pizza screen or a pizza pan with holes. Spread broccoli mixture over dough leaving a 1/2 border. Top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Sprinkle with oregano and remaining tablespoon of oil.

Bake pizza 20 to 22 minutes, or until puffed and nicely browned.
