Pizza Cottage Cheese Toast with Crispy Prosciutto

by Kaitlynn Fenley

Cottage cheese pizza toast is sure to be your new favorite savory snack! This cottage cheese toast only requires four ingredients; you can customize the toppings however you’d like.

Cottage Cheese Toast

The best thing about cottage cheese is that it’s versatile and can be used in savory or sweet recipes! While I love a sweet snack, I mostly go for savory snacks.

I’ve been trying to increase my protein intake, so I always have low-fat cottage cheese in the fridge. Recently, I saw someone make a pizza with cottage cheese on Instagram, and I figured a little cottage cheese pizza toast snack would hit the same.

Cottage Cheese Pizza Toast

You’ll love this recipe because it’s high in protein and requires only four simple ingredients (I’m calling “toppings” one ingredient here. If you want to add more toppings, feel free!). Here is everything you need to make it:

Topping Variations

The best part about cottage cheese pizza toast is that you can change up the toppings. This gives you some variation so you won’t get burnt out by the same savory snack.

  • sun-dried tomato and prosciutto
  • olive and pepperoni
  • Margherita
  • Prosciutto and pineapple (don’t come at me; Hawaiian pizza is good.)

Air Fryer Cottage Cheese Toast

I have a fantastic Breville air fryer toaster oven combo that is perfect for making this snack. However, you can use any air fryer, toaster oven, or oven to cook this toast.

I assemble the pizza toast, then stick it on a rack-lined pan and air fry for 6 minutes until the cottage cheese melts. How melty the cottage cheese gets depends on the kind you use. Homemade cottage cheese and Good Culture brand melts nicely. It won’t be stringy when melted, but it’s delish.
