  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3 TB grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning spice blend
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • ¼ tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp Italian seasoning spice blend
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking pan with parchment. Coat with cooking spray and reserve.

  • Spoon into two 8” circles on prepared baking sheet and smooth with a spoon.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until medium brown on the bottom and flip over. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until evenly browned.
  • While crust bakes, coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
