Phyllo Crust: Thaw one roll of Phyllo dough, following thawing instructions on package. Preheat oven to 3751/4F.
In a small mixing bowl, combine egg white, 2 tablespoons oil and water with a fork. Unroll and cover the sheets with plastic wrap and then a slightly damp towel to prevent drying out. Place one sheet of Phyllo on cutting surface and lightly coat with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with some of the Asiago cheese. Repeat with nine more sheets of Phyllo. Do not brush egg mixture on top sheet. Place layered Phyllo on a baking tray. Reroll unused sheets and follow storing instructions on package.
Brush 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the top layer. Sprinkle with minced garlic.
Bake for 8 minutes or just until the Phyllo starts to brown. Remove from oven and cool.
Sprinkle blue cheese across crust and then add all other ingredients. Top with any remaining Asiago cheese.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese melts.
