Express Homemade Thin Crust Pizza Recipe
Thin Crust Pizza Recipe Below↙️
🐺 Use refrigerated whole-wheat thin crust dough or mix up your own batch using wheat flour + quick rise yeast for pizza dough such as Fleischmann Yeast.
🐺 Stick with thin crust, as it reduces the number of carbs and calories you’re consuming. It also bakes more evenly.
🐺 Swap traditional high-fat cured meats for leaner turkey or chicken variety; 1:2 ratio of meats: veggies. Try Applegate
🐺 Load with veggies; 2:1 ratio of veggies: meats.
🐺 Be light-handed with the cheese, opt for 2%.

🐺 Use homemade or no sugar added sauces, such as Newman’s own or Muir Glen. You can also make your own simple pizza sauce by combining: 15 oz tomato sauce, 1 tsp. stevia brown sugar or honey, 1/2 tsp. garlic, 1 tsp. vinegar, and 2 tsp. Italian herbs such as basil, oregano, etc. Season with salt + pepper to taste.
🐺 Use a kitchen scale to measure out ingredients, especially high calorie/saturated fat items like cheese or meats. You’d be shocked (or not 🤣) how much you’re actually using.
🐺 Use a pizza stone if you have one. If not, use a well-oiled pizza pan and let it preheat in the oven while you finish prepping. Bring it out when you’re ready to assemble the pizza. The dough should be rolled out and ready to transfer directly to a hot stone/pan. Work quickly!
Enjoy your pizza + feel good about trimming it up without sacrificing the indulgence of comfort food! 😍🍕
