- 🍕Weight Watchers Pizza with 2 Ingredient Pizza Dough Recipe
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.
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a 14-inch pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, 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 the ball directly onto the pizza pan.
- Begin rolling the dough, gradually spreading it evenly across the pan. You can use a rolling pin and/or your hands.
- Roll out to cover the 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 the 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 is golden brown and bubbly. You need to watch it very closely. Cool for 3 minutes, cut, and serve.
💭Top Tip - 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 program. 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 a 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 the ww program 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 it 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 then 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
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Crushed red peppers
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. I did find some turkey pepperoni sticks at Walmart, however, and they make a great substitute!
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 is low in WW points! It's so crispy and delicious that you would never even know it's a Weight Watchers pizza! This recipe is going to be one that the whole family will love!

Can you double the recipe and freeze the extra?
Yes- I do that all the time! I’ve never tried just freezing the dough though- just the whole pizza ?
Can I substitute from self-rising flour to almond flour or coconut flour? please help. thanks
I generally don’t cook with those types of flour but I did find an article for you: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/self-rising-flour-substitutes
It looks as though you can substitute but with some other additions. Hope it works for you!
Made deep dish pizza in a cast iron pan using this dough, it turned out fantastic.
Awesome idea, Dave! I'm going to try it 🙂
This looks like a lovely recipe and is sometimes how I make Naan when in a rush. Looks delicious. Love the toppings and glad i can freeze the dough for a later date too.
I've heard a lot of about 2 ingredient dough from the weight watchers app groups! This looks great. I need to attempt it gluten free!
I’d love to hear how it turns out, Cindy!
You had me at 2 ingredient pizza dough! I love a good Weight Watchers recipe too, especially when it's something delicious like this pizza. I can't wait to try it!
Hope you enjoy it Aimee- my family loves it!
This is such a great recipe! Love that it's WW too!
Thanks, Kristen! Yes, the WW part is the best!!
Heidy L. McCallum
This is amazing! Pizza dough with only 2 ingredients? You have me at two!!!! I can't wait to try this coming week.
Thanks, Heidi! You’ll never go back to regular pizza dough!
Hi. This looks great! Do you think whole wheat all purpose flour would work? I so want to make this!
I think so - you could definitely try it! But you need to do the conversion from self-rising, as there is no self-rising whole wheat flour. Also, I'd let it sit an additional 10 minutes, as whole wheat flour can be drier if it doesn't get a chance to sit and absorb the liquid. I'd love to hear how it turns out!
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.
Great - I'm glad to hear you loved it! It's definitely a family fave in my house and we prefer it over all other pizza crusts. And I love that you can eat pizza for so few points!
It says there is 187 calories in 1 slice of that homemade pizza and it seems like if it's under weight watchers there wouldn't be that many in 1 piece, how many calories is in 1 piece?
A typical piece of pizza is 350 - 400 calories, so this is reasonable. It's still pizza, after all. However, my blog calculator does not account for 0 point foods. When I create the recipe in my WW app, it only gives me points, not calories. Hope that helps! I've been doing WW for 20+ years and never worried about calories (only points) on the program.
This was delicious!! Thank you! I’m confused about points tho... When I entered the flour, it was 16 points for the dough even without factoring in toppings. Are you calculating points based on two slices?
Hi Lindsay, I calculated again with my WW calculator and I still get 4 points. I took the nutrition facts at the bottom and plugged them into my WW calculator. It includes the toppings and the whole thing is divided by 10 pieces. I hope that makes sense! I'm on the blue plan (old freestyle). Are you calculating for the same plan?
So one slice (out of ten) is 4 points? I’m just confused by what the serving size is. I got 4 points too when I put in the nutrition facts but I decided to break up the ingredients to double check and I got much more for the whole pizza. (I’m on blue too!)
Yes, one slice of 10 is 4 points with the toppings. A serving is 1 slice. I will add that so it's clearer. Thanks!
Hi, Pizza turned out great! Thank you for the recipe. Do you have any tips on rolling the dough? My wooden roller kept sticking to the dough.
I'm glad it turned out great for you! I constantly flour my rolling pin, but I also use a pastry/pizza rolling pin that's silicone. Pampered chef pastry/pizza rolling pin (affiliate link) I love it because I can roll out directly onto a pan.
