High Protein, Low Carb Pizza Crust: A Deliciously Healthy Twist

Pizza is a universal favorite, but for those of us mindful about carbs and looking for a protein boost, traditional pizza doesn’t always fit the bill. That’s why I’ve been perfecting my high protein, zero carb pizza crust recipe over the last three years, and I’m excited to share the latest iteration with you.

Each slice of this pizza packs over 17 grams of protein, making it a fantastic meal for those on a high protein diet or anyone looking to cut down on carbs without sacrificing flavor. The chicken-based crust — I know, I know…it sounds crazy – but it is a creative and nutritious alternative to traditional dough, providing a satisfying crunch and a perfect base for your favorite toppings.

So next time you’re craving pizza, give this high protein, zero carb recipe a try. It’s a guilt-free way to indulge in your favorite comfort food, proving that healthy eating can be both delicious and satisfying.
