NOTE: Data was calculated by dividing the total dough into 6 balls, and then each ball into 8 (servings).

Ingredients

    Basic Pizza Dough
  • 1-1/2 pounds white whole wheat flour + extra for sprinkling
  • 1-1/2 cups lukewarm water + extra if necessary
  • 1-1/2 (0.8-ounce) cubes fresh baker's yeast (lievito di birra)
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons salt
    Pizza Toppings for the pizzas below:
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 4 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Salt to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound mozzarella, diced
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 salted anchovies preserved in oil
  • 1 (4-ounce) canned tuna, drained
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Fresh rosemary
  • 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, sliced

Instructions

  1. To make the pizza dough:
  2. Make a little mountain of flour on a wooden board (or in a big bowl) then make a hole in the middle.
  3. Mix baker's yeast with the water. Mix until completely melted. Pour it in the hole little by little.
  4. Use your pointing finger to mix the flour with the liquid. Start from the center going outwards in a circular motion. Add extra virgin olive oil. Add more water if necessary.
  5. Knead until you have a compact ball of dough.
  6. Put in a big bowl bigger and cover with a cloth. Let it rise between 2 - 4 hours at room temperature. You can also leave it overnight. If you are in a hurry, put it in the oven at 95 degrees F for one hour.
  7. When the dough has risen, divide it into 4 equal parts. It should be elastic.
  8. To make the pizza:
  9. Preheat the oven at 475 degrees F.
  10. Have the toppings prepared and ready.
  11. Sprinkle the wooden board with flour. Work on each dough with your hands by flattening it with your hands and stretching the sides little by little. Or you can just use a rolling pin.
  12. Oil the pizza pan. Transfer the flattened pizza dough on it. Prick it with a fork all around.
  13. Spread some oil on the dough using your hands. Sprinkle some salt.
  14. Put the toppings of your choice as outlined below.

    I will start by saying….I hardly cook but I want to start trying clean eating at my ripe age of 73. Looking at the dough recipe, I notice that the dough is cut in quarters. Can you freeze what you don’t use? Also, how do the slices break down in WWSP? Thank you very much!

      Yes, Diane, you can freeze the dough. And the SmartPoints listed are for two small slices or one larger slice.

    I created this pizza in Weight Watchers and there is no way this is 3 points.
    The flour alone for 8 servings is 9 points, that’s with nothing else. When I creates the whole recipe it was 17 points for 1 of 8 servings. I make pizza once a week and always save my points, because my pizza with just sauce and little mozzarella is 8 pts for 1 of 8 servings.

      Maria, Divide the total dough recipe into 6 balls. Next, each ball makes one pizza crust and this will be divided into 8 servings. That’s
      how the nutritional data was calculated per serving. Keep in mind this recipe makes 6 pizza crusts.
