I’m always surprised when I find out how many of you guys have YET to make a protein pizza. I mean, you’ve all seen the recipes here on proteinpow.com and in the Pow App but not all of you have actually ventured into Protein Pow pizza land. I think this is because you may be intimidated by the idea? Or you’ve just not been pushed hard enough? That’s why I love introducing people to protein pizzas in my Protein Pow Workshops – because we go from a room when NO ONE has made a protein pizza before to a downright pizza party where everyone is eating their own pizzas with gusto, full of joy, and wide-eyed at how easy and delicious making them really is (need evidence? Check out the photos from our last workshop!) I always get a ton of photos from people making protein pizzas after our workshops. Actually, THE most common thing people send to me post-workshop are pizza photos! And they always accompany messages like ‘I’m addicted to making my own pizzas now!’ or ‘I’ve been making protein pizzas every day since the workshop!’ And I love it. I really do. I love it because protein pizzas are probably one of the coolest (and easiest) things you can make with your protein powders! So please, if you’ve never made a protein pizza, consider this post a push – a violent one, if that’s what it takes to get you to make your own protein pizza. Consider this post a push and press that PRINT button on the upper right hand corner of this post. Then pin this recipe then to your fridge and make this pizza. You’ll be amazed at how simple the whole thing is and I swear, once you try it? You’ll be wanting to send me protein pizza photos too!

Directions

1. For the crust, blend (or ‘food process’) the crust ingredients together until you get a thick pancakey texture. Place this on a hot hot hot nonstick pan further nonsticked Screen Shot 2013-12-17 at 15.55.55 copywith some coconut oil or low-cal spray and spread the mix around with a spoon or spatula to thin it out.

2. Turn the heat down to medium to ensure the bottom cooks through. When it does, flip it to cook the other side.

Remove it from the pan and add your pizza toppings to it, beginning with the tomato and then adding your toppings and ending with the cheese.

Place under the grill or oven broiler for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and all the pizza looks done. That’s it: DONE.

Macros for two small pizza crusts I made out of the ingredients above (without the toppings because the toppings are up to you): 269kcals, 28g protein, 26g carbs and 6g fat!
