This 2-ingredient high-protein pizza crust is the perfect way to satisfy your pizza craving! Whip up this quick dough, add your favorite toppings, and you’ll have tasty pizza in no time!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup cottage cheese (I used 4% milkfat)
  • 1 cup self-rising flour (see note for using all-purpose flour)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2/3 cup shredded mozzarella


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Blend the cottage cheese in a blender until smooth.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the flour until a sticky ball is formed.
  4. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to your desired thickness. I recommend making it as thin as possible. (You may need to add more flour if the dough is too sticky.)
  5. Bake the pizza dough for 6 minutes.
  6. Remove the crust from the oven and carefully top with pizza sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella.
  7. Continue to bake for 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
  8. Let cool slightly then cut into pieces and enjoy!


To make self-rising flour, combine 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.
