If you are using Protégé 3.x the only way I can think of (and the way I did it) is to create a class:

Pizza1 subClassOf Pizza

Create an instance of Pizza called pizza1

Then say:

Pizza1 = {pizza1}

(literally type "{pizza1}" in the necessary and sufficient condition block for that class - this is basically saying Pizza1 = oneOf{pizza1}) 

The add a necessary condition

Pizza1 subClassOf hasTopping only (Cheese or Tomato)

Admittedly it's a bit messy, but it's more a way of getting round some of the editing limitations.

In Protégé 4 alpha you can actually directly assert (under the individual tab and in the asserted types box) that 

pizza1 instanceOf hasTopping only (Cheese or Tomato)

which should do the job.
