I don't know how to post a link but here is the recipe (I just put NancyElle Crispy in the search)

Thin and Crispy Pizza Crust
Heat oven to 450 degrees
In a bowl thoroughly combine
3 eggs
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp basil
press evenly into Pam sprayed pizza pan or cookie sheet
(this makes one 16 inch pizza crust)
Bake at 450 degrees until golden brown (about 10 to 15 minutes)

add toppings of your choice

This one has the following toppings~

1/4 cup low carb marinara
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
2 links Italian sausage (browned and crumbled)
1/4 cup sliced back olives

After adding toppings, run the pizza under the broiler until cheese is melted and toppings are bubbly

Hi Char, these look lovely. Am still trying to find a satisfactory burger bun! Is there anything I could sub for the bran? Maybe some sesame seed meal or a nut flour? Can't do bran products. TIA!

I made these last week and I didn't taste the vanilla in my vanilla flavored designer whey protein powder. I also put in oat bran instead of wheat bran. I didn't notice that I had grabbed the wrong one until after I cooked it. Oops. LOL. It was good though. It kind of tasted like cheesesticks to me. I cut them in sections for dipping in marinara. Yum. I can also see me using these for sandwiches and such. Thanks so much for the recipe.

I made them!

Oops they were overdone and now I have flat brown discs. The bottoms
are really dark, not the light golden that you have.

I think that maybe 375 is too hot for my oven? At 10 minutes they
were just golden and didn't look ready, then suddenly they were too
dark. They taste really good and I'm going to try again. One filled
me up and now I don't wan't dinner I did use one tbs. of
almond flour instead of the wheat bran, hope that didn't throw a wrench
into the monkey I think that J. would appreciate having a bun
that is more substantial than Oopsies.Oh I wanted to have you guesstimate how long you whirled the batter in food processor?
Mine were not filling the pan
as yours did. I used two muffin top pans.

Please give me your thoughts on this when you have time.

hmmm, well maybe the almond flour causes them to darken more quickly - or have you calibrated your oven lately? Maybe it's actually cooking hotter than you set it for! My old one used to cook 50* hotter than what I set it for and I always wondered why my stuff cooked too fast/dark! I got a good oven thermometer to check it with and ever after set the dial for 50* less than I needed to!

I whirl it until it's an even consistency, probably at least 30 seconds, maybe a minute - no set time, just until it all looks well-blended together. Did you use jumbo eggs? If not you might need to add another one. I "smoosh" the batter around in each cup with a silicone spatula or my fingers to make it fairly even before baking. I don't trust it to spread itself out in 10 minutes! LOL!

Thanks

I use Trader Joe's jumbos at all times, unless recipe specifies otherwise.

My Bosch stove is about 3 years old, I have not calibrated it since
it was delivered. That is a good idea. I'll get some wheat bran. Hate
it when I don't do the new recipe exactly. Could myself.

Good idea to spread dough around with fingers. I shall try again when
we eat these up.

Every oven I've ever had has an oven thermometer (cheap enough, they are) sitting in it, since the first one turned out to be 75 degrees hotter ! than the dial/thermostat...

Apparently the thermostat sensors can go out of position very easily, too, and then they aren't reading correctly, in contact with a wall or in an air stream or some such.

I made this recipe today and I must say.....these are great!! I put a few sliced jalapenos on each before popping in the oven. YUM. I made some really good spinach chicken salad last night and wanted to have a sammy for lunch. I'm gonna make this recipe again and again. I used my Wilton's mini cake pans that I bought when trying the oopsies. They came out great!

Wow, GREAT idea to put the jalapenos on top - and I bet if you sprinkled THAT with a little more cheese - nah, maybe that's overkill! How about some crumbled bacon and jalapenos....EVERYTHING is better with BACON on it!

My hubbie just tried them and gave them a solid 2 thumbs up!! He is a good sport and gave me the questioning look when I offered him a sandwich--he is my guinea pig--but immediately gave me a loud yum!!

Thanks for the great recipe!!

When your DH endorses it - it's GOT to be good! Mine doesn't care much for Oopsies (I do!) but he LOVES these bits of cheesy goodness. Glad yours like it too!

I reheated mine on a skillet with a little butter and OMG! Soooo delicious! They fried slightly on the outside and then stayed soft on the inside. I only had 2 servings left which is probably a good thing otherwise I would've eaten them all! I loveeeee them! My favorite recipe so far. Mmmm.

Char, I will give these a try sometime. I scribbled down the recipe.

Rebecca, I was thinking that I might do the same.

I bought mine from Amazon.com. They come in handy to make individual anything. Pizza, flax muffins, etc. I didn't think I would get a lot of use from this pan but I do.

You can use whatever you'd like, and be sure to post the results of your tweakage!

The original pizza dough recipe didn't have flax OR wheat bran, those are my tweaks.

As for the muffin top pans, I got mine on Amazon too, but I've heard that folks have found them at places like Target and Bed Bath & Beyond - I never saw them there locally though.

BB&B sells them online only, and the shipping (for one pan) is ridiculous.

I made a batch of these yesterday and today I had a nice tuna and lettuce sandwich - these little rounds make great rolls! I don't think I ever got around to trying them the first time around but they'll be staying around now. Next will be a bacon cheeseburger sometime this week! Thanks for the recipe Char!

These look really good. I can't wait to try these. When you used this batter as a waffle mix did it taste like cheese when you put the sf syrup on it? I guess it won't matter if I'm making a sausage sandwich out of it but wondered if I just wanted a regular waffle how it tasted.

Thank you for this recipe!
