Protein Pizza Recipe 

Pizza is universally loved, whether you agree with pineapple on pizza or not (BTW we totally do!), There's one thing we can all agree on, and that's that pizza is the best food ever, but what about when you're trying to increase your protein intake

Enter Protein Pizza, at The Skinny Food Co, we've developed our signature recipe for the ultimate protein pizza base in partnership with The BEAST - Eddie Hall. We've taken all the great qualities of a traditional pizza, like the classic tomato sauce, grated cheese and yummy toppings of choice to create the perfect recipe for a high-protein pizza, for all high-protein diet followers. 


To create a good-tasting pizza, we need to use high-quality ingredients. Using our signature bases, you'll receive 5.8 grams of protein per slice and 46 grams of protein per pizza (not including toppings). 

The Pizza Sauce 

For your layer of pizza sauce, we recommend using high-quality tomato sauce or tomato puree, mixed with a blend of herbs for a rustic Italian taste, we typically use oregano & basil

Alternatively, our Skinny Food Co Fakeaway collection offers a Gluten-free low sugar pizza sauce which is a tomato sauce alternative at 0g of fat, 0 sugars and only 4 calories! It's the ultimate healthy base sauce available. 

Cheese Toppings

 You won't have to wait till cheat day for this protein pizza recipe, unlike other pizzas it offers an entire pizza for low calories and high in protein, but pairing it with the right toppings, sauces & cheeses is essential.

For your cheese, we opt for a full cup of mozzarella cheese, however, there are a number of extra cheeses such as lean cheese, protein cheese & low-fat mozzarella cheese that can be used on your favourite pizza recipe. 

Cheese Type  Protein (per 100g) Calories (Per 100g) Fat (per 100g)

  • Chicken Breast
  • Hams (Salamis, Pepperoni, Prosciutto) 
  • Shrimp & Prawns 
  • Egg (Make it a breakfast pizza by adding bacon, egg & sausage) 
  • Superfoods - Broccoli, Kale & Spinach 

How To Make Your Own Protein Pizzas

We've already established why we should use only the highest quality ingredients, now let's talk about how to cook them! 

Once you've topped your pizza, place it in the centre of a preheated oven, placing on a baking sheet or baking tray to ensure it does not stick to the oven

In addition to using high-quality ingredients, cooking our proteins correctly is essential to creating tasty dishes. We don't want to overcook our veggies, so we're going to choose a temperature range between 180c If we go over 200c, our veggies could burn, which would ruin their flavour.

Whilst your pizza is in the oven, why not create your own Italian seasonings and dips to accompany your freshly baked pie, making a small pot of green pepper & tomato dip, or simply using your store-bought favourites such as our barbecue sauce or our healthy alternative to leading pizza takeaway our 'garlic & herb sauce.
