Protein Sparing Dessert Pizza
The 4th of July is coming and I thought a beautiful protein sparing dessert pizza with a red white and blue feature would be fantastic for celebrating!
Many of you love my protein sparing pizza so I thought I would modify the pizza crust and add my favorite Wholesome Yum allulose to the crust to make a protein sparing dessert pizza!
One of the reasons I love protein sparing modified fasting is because it helped me lose weight after being stuck with traditional keto macros. I had PCOS which can make weight loss very difficult. It wasn’t until I added “Pure Protein Days” which is what I called it in one of my first books Keto Adapted. I didn’t know it then, but what I was practicing is called protein sparing modified fasting. Protein sparing modified fasting is a practice of lowering the fat and carbs while increasing the protein. This helps the body use body fat for fuel while using the protein to increase metabolic rate while also holding onto muscle. This helps lose body fat but not muscle.
This Protein Sparing Dessert Pizza is a delicious dessert without the guilt!
To make my delicious protein sparing dessert pizza, I added used Wholesome Yum Allulose to make the protein sparing pizza crust!
Allulose is a natural sweetener with zero calories and has no impact on blood sugar. Many people prefer this as their keto sweetener because it tastes just like sugar!
I used my protein sparing pizza crust to make this protein sparing dessert pizza. Adding 1/4 cup of Wholesome Yum Allulose to my protein sparing pizza crust recipe gives the bread a softer texture. Other sweeteners will not work. You need allulose because allulose melts and creates a caramel-like protein sparing bread.
I only use Wholesome Yum brand of allulose for many reasons!
Wholesome Yum has the best quality natural sweeteners. Wholesome Yum also doesn’t use harmful additives like some brands! I also love Wholesome Yum because they are also a kind small family-owned business. You all know I love supporting small business!

This looks delicious!
I have been making the PSMF bread and it continues to come out 3/4 fluffy and the bottom 1/4 heavy and eggy. Do you think I need to cook it longer than your recommended 45 minutes? I also leave it in the oven the additional 15 minutes. Love your recipes and cookbooks. I look forward to trying the allude and dessert pizza.
I make the wonder bread a lot but I make buns/rolls. They only need to bake about 15 minutes and come out beautifully every time. I only do half of the recipe because I don’t think I could fit 18 on my 2 pans. I haven’t tried to make a loaf yet…too scared. LOL
Possibly your oven isn’t as hot as mine. 🙂
My turned out like that with liquid egg whites, once I used real egg whites it came out perfect.
can Swerve be used in place of the wholesome yum allose monk fruit powdered blend? I just have that on hand at the moment vs having to wait to get the Wholesome Yum. Thanks
The written description above the recipe states “Adding 1/4 cup of Wholesome Yum Allulose to my protein sparing pizza crust recipe gives the bread a softer texture. Other sweeteners will not work. You need allulose because allulose melts and creates a caramel-like protein sparing bread.”
I imagine you could use Swerve, but would not get the same consistency result, as stated.
I have used both in the wonder bread. The swerve bread tasted really good and browned a little, but the allulose really was much more brown.
That will work, but allulose is best as it melts better.
I was curious. I watched the video for this recipe and in it you didn’t add any egg white protein. Do you also make the recipe without or did you just not show that step?
It just didn’t show it. 🙂
The recipe states “Remove the pizza crust from oven and top with the creamy filling”…do we need to cool the pizza crust first??
I didn’t. I put the creamy filling on as soon as I took it out of the oven! It’s YUMMY!!
I second this question – I have my pizza crust in the oven right now. I’m assuming that you would let it cool, but the recipe doesn’t specify to do that. I’d like to know this too.
You definitely need to let the crust cool, but surprisingly it didn’t take long at all.
Yes, sorry. I fixed it above. 🙂
Loved this dessert! Everyone in the family enjoyed it and I will definitely be making it again.
This was such a fun treat yesterday! My 5 yo loved making a flag w thinly sliced strawberries and blueberries! I used a lankato monk fruit sweetener because it’s what I had in hand and it was perfect!! Cooking this so thin is the way to go! Thanks for such a creative idea, once again!
Wow! Do you have recipes that can use up hard-boiled egg yolks if i use hard-boiled egg whites for the protein sparing creamy layer, please?
You can make ice cream, creme brulee, add a couple to a couple whole eggs for an omelet, etc. 🙂
Ok. I knew I could use raw yolks for those but didn’t know if the hard-boiled texture would work. What about the hard-boiled egg pudding made with just the yolks, please? Thank you! 🙂
