Protein Base Pizza

I recently had the pleasure of trying out the Protein Bread Co Bread mix. I use their pancake mix ALL the time and you can check out some of the ways I use this in my recent post. 

Now the Protein Bread Co bread mix is super easy, add some water, an egg some salt and mix it up, pour it in and cook and you have a delicious protein bread loaf for your breakfast, lunch and snacks perfect with the added benefits of protein, flaxseeds, almond meal and delicious with your eggs! This contains a massive 42.8g of protein per 100g (that’s nearly 15g per serve once prepped!)

But its not like me to stick to the directions, so I decided to get creative.

There are so many other ways I would like to play around with this mix but unfortunately I ran our after my Pizza extravaganza (so worth it). You could follow the bread stick recipe but instead roll out really thin, cookie cut or slice, bake until golden and presto ‘corn ships’ for dips, sauces, nachos? I would also love to make this into a zucchini bread or even into tasty Pizza Scroll – just make into one big pizza base into rectangle shape, load some toppings, roll up and bake. maybe even use for pizza ‘toast’ under the grill? Or chop up once you cook your loaf, bake in the oven into crisp cubes and you have protein croutons for your salad? Options are endless if you don’t close it up!

What would you suggest? Or may you have, or will be making some yourself? Let me know your ideas!
