The Benefits of a High-Protein Pizza Base

When it comes to enjoying pizza, the base is often an afterthought—a mere vehicle for cheese, sauce, and toppings. However, in our high-protein Margherita pizza, the base takes a starring role both in terms of flavour and nutritional value.

So, why opt for a high-protein base? Let's dig into the benefits:

Increased Satiety

Protein is known for its ability to keep you feeling full for longer periods. By incorporating a protein-rich base into your pizza, you’re less likely to feel hungry shortly after eating, which can be especially beneficial if you’re trying to manage your weight.

Muscle Repair and Growth

If you’re an active individual, you understand the importance of protein for muscle repair and growth. Our base, enriched with Micellar Casein protein powder, provides a slow-release protein source that is ideal for recovery after a workout.

Better Nutritional Balance

Traditional pizza bases are usually high in carbs and relatively low in protein. By swapping out some of the flour for protein powder, you're creating a more balanced meal that supports your dietary needs.

Lower Intake of Calories

At only 250 calories for the entire base, you have more flexibility to add toppings that you love without significantly increasing the calorie count. It makes indulging in pizza a guilt-free experience 🥰

So the next time you're planning a pizza night, consider opting for a high-protein base. Not only will you enjoy the delicious flavours, but you'll also be treating your body to a more nutritious option.

Choosing the Right Ingredients for a Healthier Pizza

When it comes to pizza, the toppings often get all the attention. While it's true that the choice of cheese, sauce, and additional toppings can make or break a pizza, making informed choices in these areas can also contribute to the overall healthiness of your meal.

Here’s how we curated the ingredients for our high-protein margherita pizza to strike that balance:

Quality Over Quantity

Our recipe opts for fewer, high-quality ingredients rather than an abundance of toppings. By choosing premium fresh mozzarella and pizza sauce, we ensure that the flavours are rich and satisfying, requiring less quantity for a great taste.

Low-Fat Dairy Options

The mozzarella used in this recipe is from La Casa Del Formaggio, which offers a fresh mozzarella that is less heavy on fats but doesn't compromise on the classic, creamy taste you expect on a margarita pizza.

The Right Kind of Sauce

Not all pizza sauces are created equal. Many store-bought options are loaded with sugar and preservatives. We chose Mutti pizza sauce for its simple ingredients and robust flavour.

No need for added sugars or artificial enhancers here!

Seasoning Smartly

A sprinkle of sea salt flakes and garlic powder (or fresh garlic if you prefer) provides a burst of flavour without adding unnecessary calories or salt. Fresh basil not only adds a layer of complexity to the pizza but also contributes a range of antioxidants.

Mindful Hydration

Adding a small amount of water to the base mixture allows us to control the dough's texture without introducing additional fats or oils. This contributes to the lower caloric value of the base.

By carefully choosing the right ingredients, you can make a pizza that is not only delicious but also aligns with a balanced diet and fitness goals.

This approach to ingredient selection makes our high-protein margherita pizza an excellent choice for a tasty yet nutritious meal.
