Easy, Low Calorie Pizza Dough

This is the Easiest Pizza Dough you’ll ever make! It literally takes less than ten minutes to make and it’s low calorie! Can you believe I’m even saying those things about a fresh made pizza?

Well believe it and get ready because we’ve got a pizza to make!

First, Pre-heat the oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Next, combine 1 cup of Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt and 1 1/2 cups of Self-Rising Flour. Add 1 tsp of Garlic Powder and 1 tsp of Italian Seasoning. I mixed the dough by hand with a spatula.

Once it is fully mixed the consistency is a little less firm than other dough, but you really just need it to be able to hold form. Take the dough and transfer it to your parchment paper lined pan. You won’t be rolling it in a ball or anything, but it will hold shape enough to form a rectangle or circle. If for any reason it is too liquidy to hold form gradually add more flour until you reach the desired consistency.

Once you have it spread out to the desired shape you’ll place it in the oven and bake it for about 5 minutes. After the timer goes off you can take it out and top it with whatever you want!

At this point I added my pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella, yellow peppers, red peppers, chives, and spinach. I placed it in the oven for about 8 more minutes. Than, I removed it added my pre-sauteed sausage and brushed the side of the dough with olive oil.

Than I placed it back in the oven for an additional 10 minutes. The dough should be a nice golden brown when it’s done. Let it cool for about 5-8 min before cutting.

I really love this pizza dough because it really is so simple and it’s a great base for whatever type of pizza you’re in the mood for.

    I love the substitution of yogurt in pizza dough! This is pure genius and I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to copy your toppings too. So colorful and delicious!

    The “low calorie” draw my attention straight away. I love pizza but always very careful with the calorie. Look simple and my whole family can enjoy a good hot pizza.

    This is definitely worth trying out. A pizza can only taste good if the dough is delish. I like that this is low calorie.

    Once you’ve made your own pizza dough, its really difficult to go back to shop bought isn’t it? I love how colourful your pizza looks and how quick it is to make.

    Hey there, thanks for asking I just edited the post to add it under the recipe! It’s about 520 calories for the entire pizza crust.

    We love this recipe – it’s become the regular pizza dough at home! However, I calculated the calories based on the yogurt and flour I’m using and found it to be closer to 1400 calories for the whole crust. Just wanted to give you/anyone else a heads up that the calories are dependant on what brand of yogurt or flour is being used!

    I used AP flour with salt and baking powder instead of self-rising flour because I didn’t have any and toppings for a Margherita pizza. Wasn’t too confident with how thick I spread the dough on the baking sheet before baking it, but it turned out delicious! Made in 25 minutes, gone in 10!! Will for sure be making this more often. Thank you for this recipe!
