Instructions how to make high protein pizza

Pizza crust

  • At first of all, preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C)
  • In a large bowl, combine the eggs, cream cheese, and parmesan and mix well with a fork or spatula. Don’t panic the mix will firm up as it bakes.
  • Coat the 9×13″ baking pan with the cooking spray, then spread the mixture to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Place pan on a rack in the middle of the oven and bake for 30 minutes, or until crust is firm and lightly browned.

Sauce

  • In an another ( medium)bowl, mix tomato paste, oregano, basil, salt, and garlic, then add sangria to thin the mixture to a spreadable, but not too thick consistency. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Therefore, remove baking pan from oven when the crust is lightly browned on top. Stand to cool for a few minutes.
  • Increase oven temperature to 425 F (220 C)
  • Spread the sauce over the crust, then add toppings of your choice. A mozzarella helps everything stick together. Then covered pizza with a lot of pepperonis.
  • Place pan back in oven and bake for about 15 minutes, OR until cheese is bubbling and it looks delicious. Remove from oven and let stand a while; it will be too hot to eat for about 10 minutes.
  • Therefore, remove from pan, slice and enjoy.
