High Protein Balsamic Mushroom Flatbread Pizza

  • Total Time: 25
  • Yield: 4 Slices 1x


This flatbread starts with a creamy, high protein garlic white sauce that makes for the perfect foundation. It’s layered with two types of fresh cheese, balsamic mushrooms and a drizzle of balsamic glaze!



Pizza Base

  • 1 Long Flatbread or 2 Naans
  • 1 oz semi-hard or hard cheese, very thinly sliced (I use gruyere or gouda)
  • 1 oz mozzarella cheese, broken into small chunks or grated
  • Chopped Parsley, Balsamic Glaze (optional)

Garlic White Sauce

  • 3/4 cup Cottage Cheese 
  • 13 cloves of Garlic, to taste
  • Large pinch of Black Pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 23 tbsp hot water

Balsamic Mushrooms

  • 1/2 cup water
  • Season with paprika, garlic powder, black pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1.5 cups sliced mushrooms (I use a combo of button, shiitake and oyster)
  • 1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar


  1. The Balsamic Mushroom Mixture : To a saucepan, add the water and bring to a simmer. Add in paprika, garlic powder, black pepper and salt. Let it simmer for 1-2 minutes. Then, add in the sliced mushrooms and cook on medium heat until the mushrooms completely soften. Then, add in the balsamic vinegar and cook for 1-2 minutes on medium heat.
  2. Drain the mushrooms and save all that water! The seasoned mushroom water is perfect to add to the white sauce in the next step.
  3. White Sauce : To a blender, add the cottage cheese, garlic clove, black pepper and salt. Then add in the mushroom water from the previous step. Blend this until completely smooth. If the sauce is still gritty, add 1 tbsp of hot water at a time and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust.
  4. Assemble the Flatbread : Lay the flatbread on a baking tray. Spread the white sauce all over the pizza. Then, spread about half the cheese over the pizza. Spread out the balsamic mushrooms mixture and then top with the remaining cheese.  Bake or airfry at 400 F for 10-15 minutes, and then broil for 1 minute on low if you want to get the cheesy bubbly. If broiling, make sure to keep an eye on it, it can go from white to burnt very fast.
  5. Slice it up with a pizza cutter, top with chopped parsley and enjoy! Drizzle with a balsamic glaze, if you would like.
