Weight Watchers homemade pizza


For the pizza dough:

  • 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar

For the pizza sauce:

  • 1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the toppings (choose your favorites):

  • Lean protein options like grilled chicken, turkey pepperoni, or lean ground turkey
  • Plenty of vegetables like bell peppers, onions, spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.
  • Reduced-fat cheese (such as part-skim mozzarella)


For the pizza dough:

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the top and let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture and stir until a dough forms.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover it with a damp cloth. Allow it to rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.

For the pizza sauce:

  1. In a saucepan, combine the crushed tomatoes, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Simmer over low heat for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Let the sauce cool before using it on the pizza.

Assembling the pizza:

  1. Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C).
  2. Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface to your desired thickness.
  3. Transfer the dough to a pizza stone or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Spread a thin layer of the prepared pizza sauce onto the dough.
  5. Add your choice of toppings. Be creative!
  6. Sprinkle the top with reduced-fat cheese.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
  8. Allow the pizza to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Remember to adjust the quantities and types of toppings to fit your personal preferences and dietary needs. Enjoy your Weight Watchers-friendly homemade pizza!
