Plain cheese pizza may not be the most protein-packed food on its own, but that doesn't mean you can't power it up! A traditional meat-lover's pizza is high in protein, but it's also laden with fatty cuts of meat. Try this three-headed protein monster for a leaner, meaner alternative!

Crust Ingredients

  • ½ cup egg whites
  • ½ cup(s) unflavored whey protein powder
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp paprika

Remaining Ingredients

  • 4 egg
  • ¼ lb chicken breast
  • ¼ lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 6 strip turkey bacon
  • 1 cup fat-free mozzarella cheese
  • 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste


  1. Blend the crust ingredients together using a food processor until you get a thick pancake-like batter.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan over high heat and drizzle with grapeseed oil. Once the oil begins to sizzle, turn the heat down to medium.
  3. Add half of the batter to the pan, spreading it on the surface of the pan. Aim for a thickness of no more than 1/3 inch. Check the bottom of the crust frequently for doneness with a spatula, then flip and finish cooking.
  4. Transfer the crust to a baking sheet, and preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Spread tomato paste to within 1/4 inch of the crust's edges, then distribute the chicken and ground turkey (pre-cooked) across the entire pizza. Crack each egg on the pizza, and top with cheese.
  6. Cook in the oven for 4-8 minutes, or until the eggs reach desired doneness.
