Our Favourite, Low Carb, High Protein Pizza Toppings
It’s Friday night, Pizza is on the menu, but how do you keep it healthy? Adding the right pizza toppings can significantly keep the calorie count down and can also make your pizza a lot healthier. Whether you’re making your own pizza using our Protein Pizza Base, or eating pizza out at a restaurant, we have created a list of low carb and high protein toppings to help you get the most out of your pizza.
Before you start adding toppings, you're also probably wondering about the most important part of a pizza... THE CHEESE. Here are some of our favourite high protein choices:
- Parmesan: Not necessarily the cheese to create the best melt on top of your pizza, however it does have one of the highest protein contents of all cheeses, with 36g of protein per 100g.
- Cheddar: Still reasonably high in protein at 24g / 100g, opt for a classic cheddar to still achieve a good melt.
- Mozzarella: Similar to cheddar, mozzarella is the perfect cheese for pizza and its still relatively high in protein at around 24g / 100g too.
- Ricotta: Lower in protein at 11g of / 100g, Ricotta can be a great alternative option as it also contains a lower carb content.
