Midweek Mealtime - Protein Pizza

Wednesday, April 05, 2017

Yes, it's yet another pizza recipe.  Can you tell it's my favorite food of all time?  HAHA.  Seriously, though, I've been experimenting with the If It Fits Your Macros philosophy, and I often have a hard time hitting my protein goal. 

What can I say?  I'm in love with carbs in all forms! 

Imagine my glee to find I could make a pizza crust from PROTEIN POWDER!  Bonus?  It couldn't be easier!!  *squeal*

**Important note:**
Only make enough to eat the same day you make it.  The first time I made this, I made extra for the next day.  That was a mistake.  This pizza does NOT reheat well.  You have been warned.

Ingredients (for one personal pizza):

  • 1/3 cup fat free greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup flavorless protein powder (I use Quest multi-purpose)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Toppings as desired (I used part skim mozzarella and turkey pepperoni here)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Use a dough hook in either your mixer or your food processor.  Add yogurt, protein powder, oil and spices into mixer.
  3. Run for 5 minutes.
  4. Once kneaded, shape dough into pizza crust.  Place on baking sheet.  Bake 5 minutes.
  5. Flip the crust and bake for another 4 minutes.  
  6. Turn oven down to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Top crust with toppings and bake 6-10 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
