Fall is here, and that means sinking into warming colors and comforting tastes. And those cool temperatures are inseparably associated with – what else? – pumpkin. This recipe for a protein tarte flambee (an Alsatian specialty also sometimes called flammkuchen) with slices of squash will fill you up in a healthy way. The super simple crust mix has 74% less carbs than conventional, and it’s very low-calorie to boot. When the whole pie has less than 500 kcal, who can say no?


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Mix the Protein Pizza mix with water and stir/knead until a smooth dough is formed. Set aside to rest.
  • Meanwhile, slice the squash open and remove the seeds and strings with a spoon. Finely slice the squash, pear, and onion into slices as thin as possible.
  • Dust your work surface with flour. Roll or press the dough into a very thin crust with hands or rolling pin.
  • Move the crust to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Prebake for 15 minutes.
  • Spread cream cheese on the protein tarte flambee crust. Top with slices of squash, pear, and onion. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg as desired.
  • Bake for another 15 minutes until crispy.
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip

This fall recipe also tastes amazing with any of these toppings: figs, apples, chanterelle mushrooms, walnuts, pine nuts, feta cheese, radicchio, or rosemary. Red kuri squash is also sometimes called orange kabocha, or sunshine squash! If you can't find a red kuri, switch it for butternut or any other winter squash. Or try sweet potato!
