If you're interested in building muscle, being lean, and actually enjoying food that supports those goals, then our protein dessert pizza is for you. The recipe consists of an oatmeal vanilla crust topped with cream cheese and raspberry frosting. Both are protein packed using Metabolic Drive Vanilla.

Cut into 8 slices, which provides about 25 grams of protein per slice.

Crust Ingredients:

  • 4 scoops Metabolic Drive Vanilla
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup Splenda, depending on how sweet you want it
  • A splash of vanilla extract
  • Liberal amounts of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice blend

Crust Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the crust ingredients together.
  3. Line a pizza pan with parchment paper and coat it lightly with coconut oil spray or whatever you have handy.
  4. Spoon out the batter onto the middle of the pan, then gently spread. Try to create an evenly distributed circle. Don’t go too thin otherwise your pizza won't be pick-up-able.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes. Time and temp may vary depending on your oven, and how thin you spread the crust.
  6. Let the crust cool completely before adding toppings.

Topping Ingredients:

  • 4 scoops Metabolic Drive Vanilla
  • 1 brick (8 ounces) low-fat cream cheese
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 2 big handfuls of your favorite frozen berries

Topping Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the berries. Once the frosting has a smooth texture, add the berries and mix.
  2. Spread topping evenly over the cooled crust.
  3. Slice into eight pieces and let it chill in the fridge until you're ready to dig in.

Options:

  1. You can add nuts, coconut flakes, or dark chocolate chips to the crust batter, or the frosting.
  2. Use whatever milk you want. The unsweetened almond and cashew stuff just saves you a few calories and adds slightly more creaminess than water. Don't use it because it's nutritious – it's not much better than water. Use it because it doesn't contain lactose or added sugar.
  3. If you don't want sweetness other than what's in the protein powder, skip the Splenda and add one tablespoon of coconut flour to compensate for the dryness of the sugar substitute.
  4. For the topping, I use low-fat cream cheese, but use whatever kind you want.
  5. The cream cheese frosting can be used with any kind of dessert – think protein cookies, cakes, muffins, or waffles. It's also perfect as a dip for fruit.
  6. Feel free to use fresh fruit. You don't even have to mix it into the frosting, just arrange it on top. Frozen fruit needs to be mixed in because as it thaws the natural juice will separate a little, which is actually pretty when mixed into the frosting.
