Mouthwatering pizza aromas wafting through your house in no time. And….. is there anything better than leftover pizza for breakfast or lunch?
Pizza is probably one of my MOST favourite foods and one that I missed when I started my low carb journey 10+ years ago. I remember making an egg-white “Pizza base” 😩 😂 , which was really a plain omelette with pizza toppings on top lol. Tasty...but NOT PIZZA! 🤓
Keto-friendly Pizza Bases...
Fat Head Pizza base seems to be super popular keto/ low carb groups online, and whilst it's tasty, I mean who doesn’t love cheese, but when you have so much fat in the base, then add more protein, cheese and other toppings. This becomes a super heavy meal (for me anyway)
NOTE: If you love Fat Head Pizza Base, enjoy! Eat what makes you happy!
However, not everyone who follows a low carb WOE is following keto, and calories still matter, so finding an alternative that is still SUPER low in carbs BUT is lower in fat with fewer calories is a win-win! Not to mention the protein & the added bonus of share-ability - Protein Pizza is a base that holds together and perfect for your next pizza night!
Other benefits of swapping to Protein Low Carb Pizza Base...
- Lower in Fat
- Holds together like a thin & crispy Pizza
- Packed full of healthy ingredients
- Source of fibre
- Fewer Ingredients needed for the base.
- Save the cheese for the toppings!
How to make Protein Pizza
Protein Pizza: What you’ll need:
- 80g Protein Pizza Mix
- 3 eggs
- 60ml water
- 1-2 TB of Olive oil.
PREPARE – Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180°C and line an extra large baking tray with baking paper (not greaseproof paper).
MIX – Place 80g of this mix into a large mixing bowl. Add all ingredients and whisk to combine into a smooth liquid batter.
POUR – Pour the batter into the centre of the lined tray. Using the back of a spoon, spread the batter to the edges so it’s less than 1/2 cm thick.
BAKE – Place in a preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown, then remove from the oven. FINISH YOUR PIZZA – Add your favourite pizza toppings, then pop the pizza back into the oven for a further 10-15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
What’s in each pack of Protein Pizza…
Lupin flour, kibbled sunflower, flax meal, whey protein, almond meal, sesame seeds, mixed herbs, garlic, onion, salt.
🍕 One pack of Protein Pizza makes… 🍕

The great thing about our keto-friendly pizza base is that not only is it low carb and gluten-free. It’s packed full of protein, fibre and healthy fats so you can feel AMAZING after you've enjoyed it!
Save the cheese for the best part (the toppings) and if you are vegetarian you can top your pizza with loads of veggies and still get a good amount of protein in one meal.
1 serve of Protein Pizza = 27g protein. 💪🏼
Now the fun stuff...Check out some of our Pizza Topping ideas below...
The Classic Margherita Pizza.
Tomato, Cheese, Basic and Pizza Sauce. Simples! Where did the Margherita Pizza get its name?...(I hear no one ask 😂 )
A Naples based Pizza Maker in the 1800's - Raffaele Esposito named it after Margherita of Savoy, the onetime queen consort of Italy!
Sautéed Mushrooms & Olives…
No need for overly fussy ingredients. Pizza is a great way to get rid of any random veggies you have leftover in your fridge before the next grocery shop.
I was never a huge fan of pineapple on pizza, it’s only been recently that I’ve got into it. The trick for me is chill flakes. It makes it soooo much yummier, salty, sweet and hot are a winning combo!
How about something a little fancy...
Brie and Smoked Chicken.
Pizza topping is a personal journey 😂 Make your keto pizza fancy AF or as simple AF, no rules!
