Our story


Watch our River City Live Interview and review of Proteinza – The De-Carb Pizza,

I love pizza. I knew it wasn’t healthy. I was always struggling with cravings and at the same time I wanted to improve my physical fitness. Luckily, I had some background in nutrition (as a physician) and my sister Monali, was the owner and chef at “Vinny’s Italian Restuarant”. I wanted a really high protein, low carbohydrate pizza to increase muscle gain and fat loss. I knew that the ideal ingredient to make this happen was chicken. So I asked my chef sister whether she could do anything with only two ingredients to make a naturally healthy pizza. She went to work for over a year and created this delicious crispy crust made from chicken and brown rice. I absolutely loved it and ate it almost every day! We asked a few patrons at the restaurant to give it a try and it was such a hit! We then released it  “Proteinza: The De-Carb Pizza” for everyone to enjoy.

What is Proteinza?

We’ve all had that empty feeling in our stomach that nothing can satisfy except our one true love – Pizza.

Why we exist

We love pizza. We wanted pizza to be healthy.  So we created it ourselves. 

Pizza is considered the worlds’ most popular meal with about 1 in 8 Americans consuming it on any given day.

Over 100 million Americans are pre-diabetic or diabetic, This is more than one third of the entire US population. Nine out of ten people with pre-diabetes don’t even know they have it.

People who have diabetes are at higher risk of serious health complications with a 50% increased risk of death compared to those without diabetes. Even our children are at risk with one in five adolescents being clinically obese (not just overweight).

Risk factors for diabetes include being overweight and physically inactive. 

Pizza is  usually classified as a high calorie food, rich in fat and refined carbohydrates which have all been proven to contribute to obesity.

Proteinza is the pizza without these nasty health issues.
