Makers say whey protein equals healthier pizza

According to a news report from, “Healthy pizza may sound too good to be true. But the owners and co-founders of the new Pizza Whey restaurant at 3025 S. Federal Highway in Delray Beach have figured out how to do it.”

“Pizza Whey has developed an innovative recipe that allows people to enjoy one of their favorite foods with none of the added caloric guilt that usually comes with it,” said the story. “The secret is in the name, say the owners and founders, Rich Kenny, Douglas Stevens and Angelo Dastricone.  The “whey” in Pizza Whey stands for whey protein. They said the dough at Pizza Whey is a blend of wheat flour, regular flour and whey protein concentrate.  Many health enthusiasts are already familiar with whey protein, they said.  This protein has become commonplace in today’s health and fitness industry and is now used in common diets and supplements. The founding trio said that every pizza from Pizza Whey is higher in protein and lower in carbohydrates than traditional pizza.  And those carbohydrates are richer in protein, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants than traditional pizza. Each slice of Pizza Whey pizza, they said, has 28 percent fewer carbohydrates and 35 percent fewer grams of fat than a slice of pizza made with regular flour.”
