We all love pizza, and despite a few questionable toppings (ham & pineapple, we're looking at you) - there's not much that doesn't taste good on that yummy dough...
Enter the Berry Cheesecake Protein Pizza, packed with tasty fresh berries and high in protein. You'll get around ten delicious slices of pizza from the recipe; great for a treat in the fridge, dessert with the family or as your donation to your next summer BBQ.
