This Weight Watchers Pizza Recipe, with just 2 ingredient pizza dough (non-fat Greek yogurt and self-rising flour) and no rising time, is so crispy and delicious that you would never even suspect it's a Weight Watchers pizza! And if you don't have self-rising flour, see below.
💭How to make self-rising flour
Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt added.
To make your own:
PER CUP (this recipe needs 1.5 cups) Combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and ½ teaspoon of salt.
Who would ever have imagined that these 2 simple ingredients could transform into something so damn delicious? I only wish I knew about this in my early days on Weight Watchers. I can't take credit for this recipe because I didn't create it. And I don't know who originally did, but I’m sharing it because it needs to be shared. Really, it's my duty as a Weight Watchers member and huge fan of this pizza dough.
💭How to prevent pizza dough from sticking to rolling pin
When you are rolling out your pizza dough, it's best to constantly flour your rolling pin to prevent it from sticking. I also use a pastry/pizza rolling pin (affiliate link) that's silicone. I love it because I can roll out dough directly onto the pan!
💭 How to keep 2 ingredient dough crispy?
If you are worried that this WW 2 ingredient dough might be soggy, put those concerns aside. This dough is perfectly crispy and delicious! If you didn't know it was a ww pizza crust, you'd have no idea you were eating Weight Watchers pizza dough. The trick to keep ww pizza dough crispy is to use a perforated pizza pan (affiliate link). Another way to keep pizza crispy, is to bake it in a cast iron frying pan (affiliate link).
Recently my husband said that I make a really great homemade pizza. Yet he didn't even realize that it was a Weight Watchers Pizza dough recipe that he was eating and he was really surprised when I told him. That's just how good this dough is! Clearly you don't even have to be on Weight Watchers to love it.
I don't think I could ever follow a plan where I had to drastically restrict my carbohydrates. I love my carbs and it's a fact that you can still lose weight or maintain your weight without being rigid and drastically reducing or eliminating specific foods or food groups. It's all about balance and yes, you can treat yourself to pizza sometimes. And this pizza makes that even easier because it's at least ½ the WW points of a regular pizza! We actually eat it quite often in my house and the kids love it too!
💭Can ww pizza be made ahead?
Yes! I often make this pizza a day or two in advance, cover in plastic wrap, and leave it in the fridge until I'm ready to cook it. When you are ready to cook it, simply follow the baking directions in the recipe card (see below for freezing)
🌡️Can ww pizza be frozen?
Yes! If you are planning on freezing this pizza, I recommend you cook the entire pizza, as directed. Then cool it, leave it on the same pan you cooked it on and wrap in plastic wrap (I use Glad Press N' Seal), then freeze it for up to 3 months. Alternatively, you can slice it up and freeze it in individual pieces to be heated in the microwave.
💭Can I reheat Weight Watchers pizza?
Yes! When you take it out of the freezer, defrost it on the counter or in the fridge (which will take longer), keep it on the same pan hen preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Then warm the pizza in the oven for about 1o minutes (on the same perforated pan you froze it on). You can also check out this article on The top 3 ways to heat pizza for other methods.
🍕Weight Watchers Pizza Toppings
You can use any toppings you like on this pizza, but I recommend:
- turkey pepperoni, non-fat ham, turkey bacon or turkey sausage
- green peppers
- black olives
- light feta cheese
- mozzarella cheese
I discovered turkey pepperoni a few years ago and that was truly life altering. It actually tastes better than regular pepperoni (even according to my kids.) This is a great WW friendly topping to add to this pizza. However, I have found it's more difficult to find now.
One of the things I love most about making my own pizza is that I don't have to make a big, thick crust. And if you're like me and not a big fan of thick crust, then you'll love having full control over this crust.
So, if you're looking to treat yourself to a fabulous pizza that won't blow your WW points bank, then give this Weight Watchers pizza a try! This Weight Watchers Pizza Recipe with just 2 ingredients in this pizza dough, has no rising time and only 4 WW points on the blue plan per piece (with recommended toppings I use)! It's so crispy and delicious that you would never even know it's a Weight Watchers pizza!
And if you like this pizza, you may also like my Weight Watchers Better for you Breakfast Pizza! It's only ONE WW point per slice on the blue plan!
And for the kids (and you too!) this Healthy Pizza Dippers recipe is only 3 WW pts per piece on blue and also made with 2 ingredient pizza dough!
Here's what others are saying:
"I made this last night and I was very impressed! The dough had a nice crust on the bottom and a doughy/chewy inside. Only 18 pt for two medium sized pizza doughs !"⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
🍕Weight Watchers Pizza with 2 Ingredient Pizza Dough Recipe
2 Ingredient Weight Watchers Dough:
- 1.5 cup 0% — nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt * this is equivalent to a ½ of large (750 g) container

- ½ cup green pepper, chopped
- 8 tbsp your favorite pizza sauce * I use Primo brand
- 1 cup brown mushrooms , sliced
- ½ 200 ml can black olives

- 100 g turkey pepperoni
- 400 g package of light mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 14 inch pizza pan with non- stick cooking spray.
- Stir together yogurt and flour until a thick dough forms. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until it forms a dough ball.
- Place ball directly onto pizza pan.
- Begin rolling dough, gradually spreading it evenly across the pan. You can use a rolling pin and/or your hands.
- Roll out to cover pan, making as much or as little crust as you'd like.
- Top with Weight Watchers friendly desired toppings like turkey pepperoni
- Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until crust is lightly browned and cooked through.
- Optional : (if it's not yet browned enough for you) Turn oven to broil (500 degrees F) and cook for 2 minutes or until pizza browns and is bubbly. You need to watch it very closely.
- Cool for 3 minutes, cut and serve.
