Cheesy Protein Pizza Balls

One of my favourite foods (besides Nutella) is pizza - you can't beat warm, gooey melted cheese. That's why I was especially happy with my latest creation as it means I can get my pizza fix for only 40 calories & 1g fat.

This recipe uses rice protein powder (available online, in Holland & Barratt or in larger Tesco stores) but you can use pea protein or unflavoured whey protein instead.
