Are you a fan of pizza but think that it is off limits while trying to lose weight? I used to think so too, until I discovered this 2 Ingredient Pizza Dough. This dough is all the rage among my Weight Watchers friends and with good reason. It is easy to make, tastes great and is low in points on the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program. The dough is the same dough I used to make 2 Ingredient Weight Watchers Bagels. Even my kids request this and they can eat whatever kind of dough they want. The best thing about this 2 ingredient pizza dough is that you can have an entire thin crust pizza for 6 points! Read on to find out how! Don’t forget to also check out our 2 Ingredient Dough Calzone and for dessert, this One Point Cheesecake.
2 Ingredient Pizza Dough
How do you make pizza dough with just two ingredients? It is easy when one of the ingredients is Fage Fat Free Total 0% Greek Yogurt and the other is self rising flour. No self rising flour? No problem! Click here for my recipe for self rising flour. It is super easy to make with items you already have at home.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
This recipe will make two servings of 3 point pizza dough – enough to make 2 pizzas. Combine 1/2 cup of self rising flour and 1/2 cup of Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt in a bowl until a dough starts to form. The dough may be a bit crumbly at this point. Divide the dough into two equal portions. You can use one and freeze the other for later. Drop the dough you will be using onto a floured surface and knead until it comes together.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface with a rolling pin until it is very thin. You can cook this in a small pizza pan or on a cookie sheet. Gently transfer the dough to a greased pizza pan and place in a 450 degree oven for 5 minutes or until the dough starts to brown a bit. Keep an eye on the dough when it’s in the oven to make sure it does’t get too dark.
Remove dough from oven and add 1/3 cup marinara sauce. The one I used was the Kirkland brand and was 1 point for 1/3 cup.
Top with 2 ounces of Trader Joe’s Lite Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. This is the best low fat cheese I have found that tastes good and actually melts. Best of all, 2 ounces is only 2 points! If you can’t find this cheese, use what you can find, but adjust the points accordingly.
Return to the 450 degree oven and bake for 10 minutes until the top is the darker and the cheese has melted.
This whole pizza – including the toppings – is 6 Freestyle points which is just crazy to me! I am never able to finish the entire thing.
I often add lots of veggies, like peppers and onions, but I was sharing this one with my kids, so I kept it pretty basic. Feel free to add as many 0 point veggies as you’d like!
So next time you have a pizza craving, give in and enjoy it with no guilt!
