Chicken, arugula, cottage cheese pizza

This is just beyond amazing. Can you really eat pizza while living on a clean diet? Answer is yes! This pizza crust is made from the ciabatta bun recipe I posted a few days ago, just instead of making buns - I formed a pizza crust. This was SO tasty and more "human sized" than normal pizzas where you get one bigger than a plate and feel like you are going to explode when you are done. Try this out!

Crust: 4 tbsp coconut flour
3 tbsk husk psyllium
1 tsp baking soda
1½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
4 eggwhites
just under ½ cup boiling water

Topping: 150g chickenbreast (without skin)
40g arugula
Tomatopaste (just to cover the surface)
80g lowfat cottage cheese

Preheat oven to 225C
Add dry ingredients to a large bowl. Mix well. Add the egg whites and apple cider vinegar and mix until a thick dough forms. Add the boiling water (might seem wet at first but the coconut flour will soak up all of the moisture. On a baking pan with baking sheet, split dough in two (I weighted mine so they were the same weight) and form them round and flat by using a rolling pin. You choose how thick you like the pizza, but remember they will rise slightly in the oven. Add the tomato paste to both surfaces of the pizza and oregano. Set aside. Cut the chicken into small pieces and fry them in olive oil until they are well done but not too brown. Put 75g on each pizza. Now put in oven and bake for 10 minutes. When out of oven, add arugula and cottage cheese. Of course you can use the topping you want but remember the nutrition facts will change and this is by the way an amazing combo of food. Enjoy! 

If you only want 1 pizza just cut all ingredients in half (But always nice to get pizza two days in a row right!)
