Woot Woot Friday!

This week has been full of highs and lows for me, and even though days of the week really don’t matter to me with my always changing schedule, for some reason the end of this week is a very welcomed one.

A happy ending is perfect timing to share a #strangebutgood recipe right?

I thought so. And thankfully for us the wonderful Laura gives us the opportunity to link up and share some of of tasty and not so normal eats. So make sure you head over to her site to check out what everyone else is creating.

Sprint 2 the Table

We all know my love for protein powder. I have made countless dips, spreads, breads, muffins, pancakes, waffles and added a protein kick to them. And really plain ole protein frosting is a favorite of mine.

If you’re in the market for protein powders that make amazing protein frostings these are two of my favorites.

But on to the new protein packed creation.

Since I am so obsessed with cooking and baking with protein powders it’s no surprise that I spend countless hours perusing Anna at Protein Pow’s website. That girl has so many amazing creations and I want to make them all.  We all know I can’t follow a recipe for the life of me, but I definitely get a lot of inspiration for creating dishes from her.

This one is no different.

She has posted multiple protein pizza bases and I finally got around to playing around with one of my own.

You can check out her original recipe, but I will of course admit, I did not follow it exactly and used what I had on hand, and adjusted certain ingredients and I’m sure it comes as no surprise, didn’t really measure and threw random ingredients in. Some of the changes I made were I upped my chickpea flour and pea protein amounts and omitted the oat flour, and I didn’t add the ground almonds (only because I didn’t have any) and added in some other random spices.

My toppings turned out to be kind of random as well. I swear I had a can of tomato paste that I was going to use as my sauce, but I guess I was wrong because I couldn’t find it anywhere. To improvise I used roasted red pepper hummus as my sauce, mixed nutritional yeast with cottage cheese for my “cheese” and topped it with baby spinach and tomato and sprinkled more nutritional yeast and spices (oregano and basil).

Since I winged it I really wasn’t sure how this was going to come out. I never really have high expectations when I make something for the first time. I am happy to report it came out amazing!

The crust got so much crispier than I thought it would, and it held together great and even had a nice crunch to it!

Just add this to my list of protein experiments. Actually gone right!
