Easy Protein Sparing Pizza Crust
If you love pizza, you must try my Easy Protein Sparing Pizza Crust recipe!
This recipe for my Easy Protein Sparing Pizza Crust makes 4 crusts. If you only want to make 2 crusts, feel free to cut the recipe in 1/2. However, I suggest to make 4 pizzas and freeze them for easy dinners!
I grew up in Medford, Wisconsin, home of the first frozen pizza: Tombstone! It started in a bar located across the street from a graveyard. My dad worked at the bar making pizzas for his friend who owned it. When the pizzas started to get popular, my dad’s friend asked him if he wanted to be a part of the business. He politely said no, since my grandpa owned a plumbing and heating business and my dad always knew that he was destined to be a plumber (which he is to this day, as are my brothers). But this is one of the reasons I make this Easy Protein Sparing Pizza Crust often and always have them in my freezer. I grew up with pizzas in the freezer at all times!
To make my Easy Protein Sparing Pizza Crust, I used my favorite NEW Monk Fruit Allulose Blend from Impact! Other sweeteners will not work as well with my pizza crust recipe. Allulose melts unlike erythritol which helps make the pizza crust delicious and chewy.
Impact makes really great sweeteners! Other low-quality sugar substitutes often taste bitter, have artificial ingredients, additives, and fillers. Impact provides healthier, tastier solutions!
I highly suggest to order a few bags of their sweetener so you can make a lot of my yummy protein sparing pizza crusts! It is so easy and perfect for healthy dinners in an instant!
Another cool thing that I LOVE that Impact is that they do not use plastic and really cares about the environment!

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
Hi Maria. Love your articles and recipes. I tried to order from Impact and wasn’t able to check out with items in my cart because their website said my address was invalid. Plus the website wouldn’t let me use your coupon you mentioned in your article. Just thought you ought to know. I’m hoping they can get their website fixed so I can order some of their product.
I’m sorry about that. Thanks for letting me know.
Hello Maria we have been eliminating gluten from my sons diet and I found your recipes. I am so happy with the bread recipe and wanted to ask about kids and the egg
Protein powder. I assume it’s ok?
As long as they are over the age of one it should be fine as long as there is no allergy or sensitivity.
Hello. Discount is not yet applying. Want to order! Thanks!
Lots of people have been able to use the discount. Try refreshing your screen, or using a different browser and then try again.
does it get crisp?
No. This makes a softer, more chewy crust.
Do you roll out the dough or just press it into shapes? How big should each pizza be? Those steps were not in directions. TY.
Spread the dough onto your prepared pizza pan(s) in the shape and size you desire. For thickness, it depends on how thick you like your crust. Keep in mind it will rise a little while baking and then fall a little when it’s done. I like to spread mine to about 3/4 inch thickness.
Would Besti allulose/ monkfruit blend work too?
Yes, that is also a good option 🙂
I have some kind of horrendous sensitivity to Allulose. I believe it might be the corn that it is made from but whatever the reason, I cannot use it. What would you suggest as an alternative? I usually use Swerve or Stevia, as Erythritol tends to give me headaches. I know, I know, I have a lot of sensitivities which is why I started Keto in the first place.
You can omit the allulose. It just helps give the crust a better texture.
What if we don’t have egg white protein on hand? Would real egg whites work, or egg whites from a carton? Or collagen powder on its own or with other items? Thanks!
This recipe is a little different and calls for liquid egg whites and egg white protein powder: https://mariamindbodyhealth.com/protein-sparing-pizza-crust/
But you have to use egg white protein powder in both recipes for it to work. Other powders or collagen will not work. If you just use liquid egg whites you will get a meringue.
Is the sweetener a must in this recipe or can it be omitted? I can see in your other protein sparing pizza crust recipe, sweetener is not used.
You can omit the allulose. It mainly just helps with the texture.
Can I use either a Allulose or Monkfruit if I don’t have the blend? Which would you prefer?
Allulose will work. 🙂
Maria–nothing to do with pizza, but I wanted you to see this: https://lifehacker.com/make-a-cute-little-salami-rose-with-a-wine-glass-1848476339

Is the Pizza Crust Nutrition per serving?
So we make 4 crusts? Can you explain the servings? Is that per crust or overall?
The recipe makes 4 crusts. You can freeze the extras 🙂
