I’ve been having so much fun playing with cottage cheese and after making cottage cheese macaroni and cheese, I wondered if I could use it to make a high protein pizza crust. I’ve made a simple 2-ingredient pizza crust with Greek yogurt before, so I tried it with cottage cheese. It worked surprisingly well! I actually couldn’t believe how easy it turned out to be!

Ingredients & Substitutions

Cottage Cheese– I used 4% milkfat cottage cheese but 2% milkfat works fine. I don’t recommend using fat-free cottage cheese. If you don’t have cottage cheese, you can make it with Greek yogurt instead. Follow this recipe for my Greek yogurt crust.

Self-Rising FlourSelf-rising flour is made with all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. If you don’t have self-rising flour in your pantry, you can use all-purpose flour mixed with baking soda and salt. I’ve included a recipe below!

What is Self-Rising Flour?

Self-rising flour is made with all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. This allows baked foods like pizza crust to rise without the need for yeast. It can be used for everything from pizza crust to biscuits! It’s great when you’re low on other ingredients in your pantry, but you still want to make something delicious!

How to Make Self-Rising Flour

Self-rising flour is simple to make at home. The recipe is one cup of all-purpose flour mixed with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. This makes slightly more than one cup of self-rising flour.

Why I Love This Pizza Crust

Using cottage cheese as the base of this pizza creates a soft and tender crust that is crispy on the bottom with a chewy texture. It’s high in protein and low in fat. By using self-rising flour, we don’t need any yeast and we can get a light, airy crust without spending a lot of time kneading the dough.
