Get your pizza fix with this easy protein pizza, ready in under 30 minutes and packed with over 20 grams of protein per serving. Enjoy a healthier version of traditional pizza without sacrificing flavor!



For the protein pizza dough

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour – or regular all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt

For topping

  • 2/3 cup pizza sauce – or more if needed
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese



  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and place one of the racks in the center of the oven. Spray a pizza pan or baking sheet with olive oil spray or non-stick cooking spray and set it aside.
  2. Make the self-rising flour by mixing the flour, baking powder, salt, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in a medium size mixing bowl.
  3. Using a fork or rubber spatula mix in the Greek yogurt with the self-rising flour and use your hands to knead the dough to form a smooth dough ball. This takes 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle some flour over the dough and onto your hands if the dough is sticky.
  4. Spread the dough onto the greased pizza pan or baking sheet using your hands to press it into a pizza shape. Pressing the dough from the center to the edges of the pan is the easiest way to do this. Then pre-bake it for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F.
  5. After 5 minutes, remove the pizza crust from the oven. Spread the pizza sauce in an even layer all over the pizza, leaving a 3/4 inch edge, then evenly spread the cheese over the top then bake for 15-17 more minutes, until the crust is perfectly golden.
  6. Let it cool for 5 minutes, slice, and serve!


  • Use a sprinkle of flour and well-floured hands to knead and mix the dough into a smooth dough ball.
  • You can use your hands or a rolling pin to roll out the dough, but I found that pressing it into the pan with your hands was the best method. If using a rolling pin then roll the dough out on top of parchment paper to make it easier to be transferred to the pizza pan.
  • For a crispier crust, brush the pizza dough with olive oil or spray it with olive oil spray before you bake it.
  • Store leftover pizza layered between parchment paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Reheat leftovers in the oven on a pan at 375 degrees F until the cheese is melted and the pizza is warmed through. You can also reheat individual slices in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for 2-3 minutes.
