Being from an Italian family on the east coast, I love a good calzone. I was practically raised on this doughy, cheese filled treat. I am currently following the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan and I love how it gives me the flexibility to eat a ton of my favorite foods, like calzones. Lately, the people in my weight watchers meeting have been raving about 2 Ingredient Dough recipes. I have used it to make everything from bagels to 2 Ingredient Dough pretzels to pizza dough. Today I am sharing how to make a 2 Ingredient Dough Calzone using that same dough recipe. This large and delicious calzone is very filling and is 8 freestyle points. Try it and see why it is worth every point!
Why this Weight Watchers calzone is awesome
What makes this calzone so awesome is an unexpected ingredient. The unexpected ingredient in this 2 Ingredient Dough Calzone is fat free Greek yogurt. Fat free Greek yogurt is 0 points on the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan. Don't worry, you can't taste the yogurt at all. My favorite yogurt to use is Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt.
The second ingredient in 2 Ingredient Dough is self rising flour. You can buy it pre-made or make it yourself with all purpose flour. I share an easy self rising flour recipe here.
This is the same dough we use to make Weight Watchers pizza crust.
- self rising flour
- Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt
- pizza sauce
- shredded part skim mozzarella
- Italian seasoning
- Parmesan cheese
How to make Two-Ingredient Dough Calzones
To make a large calzone, combine ½ cup of self rising flour and ½ cup of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt in a medium bowl until a dough starts to form. The dough will be sticky.
Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and place on a floured work surface. Knead the dough and use a rolling pin to roll into a 6 inch circle.
Scoop ¼ cup of 1 point pasta sauce on half of the circle, avoiding the edge as you will be folding and sealing the dough on this part. Add ⅛ cup of mozzarella on top of the sauce. I used Kirkland Signature low moisture part skim shredded mozzarella which I found at Costco. It is 1 point for an ⅛ of a cup. If you use a different mozzarella or more of it, please adjust points accordingly.
Fold over the dough and press to seal the edges. Spray with cooking spray and sprinkle on Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese. You can even add garlic powder if you wish.
Bake on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. At the end of the cooking time, the dough will be a golden brown.
Cut it open to reveal the saucy, cheesy goodness.
This calzone dough recipe makes a great lunch or dinner with a side of veggies. You can also serve with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. Just be sure to count the extra points if you do.
