Freestyle Pizza

The finished product!

Have you made the 2 ingredient dough yet? Easy to make and versatile, it will soon become a staple in your kitchen. Every weekend I quadruple the easy 1 c. flour / 1 c. yogurt dough to make 3 Freestyle point bagels. I also roll the dough and make flatbread with it. Tonight, I used the flatbread to make a delicious and protein-packed freestyle pizza crust.

Friday nights are pizza night. Maybe not every week, but in my heart, I always go to pizza. What’s a better way to kick of a weekend with melted cheese? Melted cheese on a pizza crust that packs 24 g. of protein and 6.5 g. of fiber for less than 300 calories. Instead of sabotaging your diet on a Friday night, this pizza will help you end the week eating clean and healthy.

Freestyle Pizza

1 c. of self-rising flour (or 1 c. flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, and 1 tsp salt mixed well)

1 c. fat-free Greek yogurt

1 c. diced tomatoes or pizza sauce

12 oz. frozen chopped spinach ( fresh, cooked) cooked according to package directions and drained well

1 c. part skin shredded mozzarella

4 T. grated Parmesan cheese

12 oz. sliced mushrooms (fresh or canned)

salt and pepper to taste

Freestyle Pizza Directions
  1. Combine the self-rising flour and yogurt until it forms a loose dough.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and kneed about 25 times. The dough should form a smooth, soft ball.
  3. Cut the dough into fourths.
  4. Flour and roll each ball into roughly 8-inch circle.
  5. Heat a heavy skillet (I use cast iron) to medium heat and spray with cooking spray.
  6. Place one circle into the skillet and cook until the underside is cooked and slightly browned (about 2 minutes). Flip and cook until the other side is cooked, about an additional minute.
  7. Transfer cooked dough circles on a cookie sheet. Top each circle with 1/4 of the pizza sauce or diced tomatoes, 1/4 of the spinach, 1/4 of the mushrooms, and 1/4 c. shredded mozzarella and 1 T. Parmesan.
  8. Bake 10 – 12 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

One pizza is one serving, or 7 Freestyle points.
