Healthy Muscle Building Pizza Recipe
On today’s episode, it’s pizza time, and I’m showing you how to make a healthy version of a muscle building pizza.
One of my all-time favorite cheat meals is pizza.
I think I could eat pizza every single day.
But I also love other cheat meals.
So if I only want to have one cheat meal a week, sometimes I’ll skip going out for pizza, and opt to make this homemade, muscle building pizza recipe instead.
It’s a healthier pizza recipe since it uses all whole and natural ingredients including the muscle building protein source, chicken.
Side note: the greek meaning of “protein” is of prime importance which is why we build every meal around a healthy protein source.
If you want to know all the other ingredients I use, and how to make this muscle building pizza recipe, you’ve come to the right place.
Lets get started.

Muscle Building Pizza: Homemade Healthy Pizza Recipe
Muscle Building Pizza
Pre-heat the oven to 375F.
Add tinfoil to a baking sheet (this will make clean up easier) and lightly spray with cooking spray.
Brush olive oil on pita and spread it around. This will add a lot of flavor to the pizza crust, as well as adding in a good source of healthy monounsaturated fats.
Sprinkle fresh minced garlic on top of the pizza crust. Again, this will add a lot of flavor, so spread it around evenly to avoid getting a big chunk of garlic in one bite.
Spread tomato sauce on top of the pizza crust.
Add thinly sliced tomatoes.
Next up is the spices. Don't be shy, spice it up by adding basil and oregano to the pizza.
Add a dash of sea salt to your palm and sprinkle it over the pizza so you don't overdue it. Then add some black pepper.
Next up is one of my special ingredients, crushed red pepper flakes for a little bit of heat. Go easy and spread it evenly, as it can be hot if you get too much in one bite.
Add the pre-cooked chicken to add a healthy source of protein to the pizza.
Add the sliced mushrooms and diced pineapple to get the pizza a Hawaiian flavor.
Before you add the cheese, put the pizza in the oven for approximately 8 minutes to crisp up the crust.
As you wait for the pizza to finish baking in the oven, be efficient and fill that time by cleaning up!
Once the 8 minutes is up, take the pizza out of the oven, then add a small handful of cheese (not too much) on top.
Place the pizza back in the oven and bake for approximately 2 minutes or more, depending on how long it takes for the cheese to melt.
Remove the pizza from the oven and give it a taste!
Nutrition Info (makes one serving):
Once the pizza is ready, give it a taste.
Trust me, you’re going to love the flavor that the garlic and olive oil bring to this muscle building pizza.
I give it 2 thumbs up! 👍👍
