Cheeseless Protein Pizza

As you know breads are no no for high protein diet, Ideal Protein say no to any breads because of High Carbs. Here we made High Protein - Low Carb piza which is suitable for this diet. This can be eaten as snack or lunch/dinner. I would still treat this as restricted food, so you can occationally add to menu to curb your cravings. See here how you can make these.

Preparation:

  1. You need all purpose flour to make pizza, but you can't use all purpose flour because of high carbs. So you need to use equivalant version of low carb four like Tova Carbalose Flour. This flour has low in carbs, high in protein and lot of fiber. You also need Yeast for as raising agent then topping you need pizza sauce (look for low carbs, max of 30 cal for 1/4 cup). This recipe makes 2 servings and here in total calories, I added calories from flour, pizza sauce & sugar which is still in limit.
  2. Weigh 100g of Tova Carbalose Flour and 10g of Vital Wheat Gluten Flour and set a side. Slice/chop 1 cup of vegetables of your choice.
  3. Then in in bowl add 3/4 pkt of Active Dry Yeast(about 5g), 1/2 tsp of Sugar and 100ml of warm water, mix all these well until dissolved and leave it for 10 min until you see foamy texture.
  4. Now mix 2 tsp of Olive oil and 1/3 tsp Light Salt and then add 100g of flour & 10g of gluten flour and make soft dough. Cover the dough with damp cloth or damp paper towel and rest it for 5~10 min.
  5. Pre-Heat oven to 425° F. Take a baking sheet / pizza stone and place dough and make round like thick roti/chapati as shown below, then spread 1/4 cup(or less) of pizza sauce and spread choice of your vegetables. Once finished put baking tray in oven for 15min and watch in between until it's done.
  6. Your Protein Cheeseless Pizza is read to enjoy!!. This is for 2 servings so you can only have half not more than that (strictly). I would still treat this as restricted food, so you can occationally add to menu to curb your cravings. To make it complete meal for lunch you still need to take 1 1/2 cup vegetables since this recipe has only 1/2 cup veggies per serving.
