It is time! The dough deserves its own post! I have been mentioning it often in my posts and I realized I just needed to dedicate a whole post to it.
A big thank you to Kim, my blog reader and friend, for sharing this with me when I started my journey! Also, a big thank you to Biz of My Bizzy Kitchen for developing this dough. Ever heard of the WW 2 ingredient dough? Well, Biz made it way better with a couple of additions. The reason why this dough is so amazing is that it is only 1 WW point per ounce. You can do other things with it, too. I have made breadsticks and bagels but I know you can do cinnamon rolls, buns, empanadas, and more!
It is really, really hard to eat regular pizza without blowing your daily points allowance. I love my pizza made with this dough so much that I really haven’t missed “real pizza”.
You need: 2 cups of self rising flour, a half of a cup of greek, non-fat yogurt, a teaspoon of yeast, and a half teaspoon of salt. You also need 1/2-3/4 cup of water. Start with 1/2 cup and then add a bit more if needed. I try to always keep these ingredients on hand.
Mix those 5 ingredients together and let rise in your bowl with a towel over it for a few hours. I then transfer it to the fridge and it really gets better the longer you wait to use it.
I roll mine out on a bit more flour and then add sauce and cheese and whatever vegetables I have ready. I bake mine at 450 for about 8 minutes but I am going to try it in my new air fryer on the pizza setting next time.
I have also made little breadsticks if I feel that I need some carbs to go with my meals.
And, the dough makes great bagels.
I am excited to experiment more with this dough. Honestly, one should maybe always have this dough on hand in the fridge.
Be sure to check out the My Bizzy Kitchen for more ideas; she has way more than just the dough.
Anyone else tried this?

Totally! Tom doesn’t like it so when I do this he has his $1 Totino’s frozen pizza. Tom can taste the yogurt but I think it tastes great!
We started using this as pizza dough after you mentioned it one time; we used to use the 2 ingredient dough and prebake it for 5 minutes before making the pizzas but they were more like thin crust pizzas and my boys didn’t like them. They really like this dough and I love that I can make a personal pizza for roughly the same points as one slice of regular pizza!
Though I haven’t used the dough for anything else yet.

I’m so glad you like it and it works for you! Definitely try the bagels!
Again, I’m saving this post! I think you told me about this dough, but I’d forgotten. I can’t wait to try it
Thank you for the recipe. My husband is dieting, we’ll give it a try. It looks delicious.
I am SO glad you have liked it as much as we have! I have made bagels, breadsticks, apple pie crusts, and cinnamon rolls and danishes! But 99.8% of the time, its pizza. Tony LOVES it so much and I make it and then portion it out and put in ziplock bags. I then throw in freezer! I pull out that morning or day before and put in fridge. Set out about 30 min prior to rolling out. Makes the BEST PIZZA! Dare I say it might be the best pizza ever. Have a great weekend! PS…..Biz has a cookbook about her skinny pizza dough! I bought it for Taylor.
