Protein Pizza with Over 60g of Protein

This protein pizza is packed with over 60g of protein and is ready in under 20 minutes! Eat the entire pizza yourself or split it up into slices to portion out for some low calorie meal prep.


  •  90g Self-Rising Flour
  • If You Do Not Have Self-Rising Flour You Can Use The Same Amount Of All-Purpose Flour Plus 1 Of Teaspoon Baking Powder And A Pinch Of Salt
  •  30g PEScience Select Multi-Purpose Protein
  •  150g Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  •  1⁄4 tsp Salt
  •  1⁄2 tsp Garlic Powder
  •  60g (1⁄4 Cup) Tomato Sauce
  •  56g Light Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  •  Italian Seasoning for Topping


  1. Add all the dry ingredients (flour, protein, and seasoning) to a large bowl and mix. Add the Greek yogurt to the bowl and mix until a dough forms. 
  2. Generously flour a clean surface and add your dough. Add more flour over the top of the dough and use your hands to press the dough out into a pizza shape, leaving the crust slightly thicker. You can use your air fryer basket as a reference for how large to make the pizza. 
  3. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees for a few minutes, then spray with cooking spray and add your formed pizza dough. Poke holes in the center of the dough with a fork to prevent it from bubbling up. 
  4. Spray the dough with cooking spray, then season the outer crust with garlic powder (optional, but a garlic crust adds great flavor).
  5. Air fry at 400 degrees for 5 minutes, then carefully flip the pizza dough (use a spatula to get underneath the crust without breaking the pizza) and air fry for an additional 2 minutes to brown the bottom. 
  6. Flip the dough back in the air fryer, then add your sauce and cheese.
  7. Air fry for an additional 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and browned to your liking. 
  8. Top with Italian seasoning, cut into 6 slices, and enjoy. 


  • The air fryer creates the best result for a crispy crust. If you prefer the oven, heat the pizza in a hot skillet with a little olive oil for 2-3 minutes to crisp the bottom, then bake the pizza at 500 degrees for about 8 minutes. Add your toppings, then broil for 2 minutes to melt the cheese. Without the skillet, I find the bottom of the pizza does not crisp up enough if only using a baking sheet.
  • If you are keto, you may be tempted to replace the flour with almond flour or coconut flour, but that will not work in this recipe.
  • If you want to make this pizza without protein powder, you can substitute the protein powder 1:1 with more flour (but the protein content of this pizza will obviously be lower).
  • The nutrition facts are based on the specific ingredients I used. Depending on the type of cheese and sauce you use, the total calories & macros may turn out slightly different.
