Ingredients

Directions

  • For brownie crust, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the granulated sugar and the oil. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a small bowl, stir together flour, cocoa powder and salt. Add flour mixture and the water to the beaten mixture. Beat just until combined. Spread in the prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
