I put recipes up here for you all on a daily basis, most of which are pretty decadent or just “chef-worthy” in general. Truth is I’ve actually been watching what I eat since I had my youngest less than a year ago.

I’ve had days where I make a recipe I absolutely love, take 4 bites of it and each a plate of steamed vegetables because I only have so many “points” left after a stressful afternoon of binge eating pretzel sticks while making sure both kids are alive and well (I don’t know why but our youngest is completely enamored with chewing on plugged in power cords).

So when I posted this Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza on Instagram, I was just sharing my lunch and it became a hit on my Facebook page. I tend not to share recipes that are dependant on a specific brand (this is not a sponsored post, btw), but in this case I think it is available over most of the country, so hopefully it won’t frustrate too many of you.

The recipe is easy and quick enough. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, take one La Tortilla Factory Wheat Tortilla, top it with 3 tablespoons of your favorite pasta sauce (I use Trader Joe’s marinara) and 2 ounces of Trader Joe’s Lite Shredded Mozzarella.

If I can stop the directions for a second to discuss the cheese. This mozzarella is worth writing poetry about. It browns amazingly, when you pull out a slice of lasagna the mozzarella strings go on forever and it tastes as good if not better than any other normal Mozzarella I’ve bought. I kid you not, right now in my fridge I have three of them. We ALWAYS have them, even if no one is “dieting,” it is our go to. This cheese is the secret sauce that makes this Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza so amazing. Don’t substitute for another brand of light mozzarella and then get disappointed it isn’t amazing. Go out and get this if it is within a reasonable driving distance for you! And the nutritional stats on it are a DREAM to a person watching their calories!!

But I digress, where were we…  Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza baked on a whole wheat tortilla with melty mozzarella and pepperoni, this pizza is one of the most satisfying ways you can enjoy a 6 point meal! Oh yes, tortilla, pasta sauce, mozzarella and now I use 8 slices of turkey pepperoni (I’ve looked at the labels and every turkey pepperoni I’ve seen is the same points for 8 slices) and top with some dried oregano and crushed red peppers (optional). Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza baked on a whole wheat tortilla with melty mozzarella and pepperoni, this pizza is one of the most satisfying ways you can enjoy a 6 point meal! Now here is where I recently changed the recipe. I found that the texture of the tortilla was not great when baked, so I tried a quick (I mean less than a half second) spray of canola oil on top. The difference was night and day! The flavor is wonderful with it! So once you are all topped and ready to go, give the pizza a quick spray and we can get baking! Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza baked on a whole wheat tortilla with melty mozzarella and pepperoni, this pizza is one of the most satisfying ways you can enjoy a 6 point meal! Bake the pizza on a sheet pan for 5-7 minutes. Watch your oven, by 7 minutes you should be all bubbly and browned.  Let the pizza rest for 2-3 minutes when it comes out because that cheese is going to be like lava.Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza baked on a whole wheat tortilla with melty mozzarella and pepperoni, this pizza is one of the most satisfying ways you can enjoy a 6 point meal!  I usually slice it into four wedges and eat it before my toddler discovers I made pizza. But if you want to feel like you are eating a delivery pizza, slice it into smaller triangles for bite sized slices. Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza baked on a whole wheat tortilla with melty mozzarella and pepperoni, this pizza is one of the most satisfying ways you can enjoy a 6 point meal!

Dinner then Dessert TIPS Save an extra point and use sliced veggies instead of pepperoni! Or make my second favorite pizza Pear, Walnut & Gorgonzola from Eating Well.

    1. The weight watchers system works! I’ve lost 35lbs between January 1st and today March 24th. I use the old weight watchers method because I know it works. I lost all 73 lbs that I gained with my first child within 6 months using the old system. That’s without regular exercise. You should definitely give it a try.

  1. We love thin crust pizza in our house so this recipe definitely looks like something we’d love to try! I love that this can also double as a waistline friendly lunch!

  2. This is going to make an awesome dinner this week! I bought some wheat wraps that I was not sure what I should make with them. Thanks for the idea!

      1. Seriously! I am going to make our’s veggie because I do not have any pepperoni on hand. I cant wait to taste the crisp!

    1. Oh my goodness! I used to cook for clients who had severe food allergies so I understand all the energy that goes into making delicious food with strict restrictions! Good for you!

    1. Thanks Jill! Most of my recipes are not really WW friendly, but I try and make the ones that are interesting enough to post unlike my normal turkey sandwich on 45 calorie bread. Most days I am a creature of habit for breakfast and lunch because I just get so insanely busy.

  3. Pizza is so beloved in our house. We couldn’t do without it, so this is a great way to do it healthfully.

  4. I should definitely try this out for a personal meal! I love pizza and it would be great to start making a healthier version.

    1. I promise you if you try that mozzarella it will replace any other shredded variety you normally buy, it is that good.

  5. This looks like a great weekday lunch solution that is fresh yet fast, exactly what I need on the days I have a heavy workload. Plus you can never disappoint me with anything pizza!

    1. I know right? I mean I’m a sucker for pizza and for pepperoni in general, so when it came out of the oven crisp and melted, I swear it just couldn’t go wrong!

  6. I love the option of pizza, even when dieting. This sounds like a great recipe… especially since we always have tortillas in the house 🙂 YUMMY!

  7. I would have never have thought about using a tortilla for a pizza crust. That is really original…and quite tasty!

  8. This sounds like a really great way to enjoy pizza without all the grease and fat! And it looks delicious too!

  9. Mm that does sound like a great lunch. No
    wonder it received so much love. I think we all could use a light lunch recipe, especially if it’s pizza!

  10. Yum. What a fantastic idea. I’ve made pizzas with english muffins and stuff like that but never tortillas. What a great idea, I bet they are crispy and so delicious!

  11. YUMMY! I made some of these just the other day. I am finding that a lot of pizza crusts make my stomach hurt something fierce. I’ve also been trying to watch my sugars and carbs so I found some high fiber tortillas with olive oil and omega’s in them. They make great pizza crusts.

  12. Hi Sabrina
    Thank you so much for this delicious, quick and easy recipe. I used different brands of the low fat mozzarella and turkey pepperoni but they turned out so good! I had one last eve and just surprised 2 of my apartment neighbours with a little lunch…they loved it too. I love these kinds of healthier recipes…very quick and very tasty!

    1. So glad to hear you enjoyed it!! And can you be my neighbor? I would love someone to bring me a surprise lunch!

  13. This pizza looks amazing! I am going to try it tonight! I am searching your blog but can’t find any more recipes that are semi low-carb/ kind of paleo. That’s about how strict with my eating! I really like your recipes! Everything looks so good! If it wouldn’t be too much trouble, would you please let me know which recipes fit into my eating lifestyle or where I can find them on your blog? Thank you so much!!

    1. Thanks so much for the comment and for visiting the blog! I would hightly recommend the Busy Baker Blog, Chrissie Baker has some awesome healthier recipes. This site tends to err on the side of sweets and carbs and all the things my clients were obsessed with. I definitely will have more of a variety in the future, but at the moment it is a bit hit or miss.

      Here are some recipes that could work for you (the mushroom chicken was a favorite of a client with your dietary preferences)

      This weekend when I get a bit of time I will create a tag for “healthier choices” and tag everything else on the page that may work for people with one dietary preference or another 🙂

      Hope that helps! And I hope you love the pizza!! That Trader Joe’s Lite Mozzarella is really magical!

  14. Sabrina, thank you for your sweet response and for all the links to the healthy recipes on your site. I had the pizza tonight and it was fabulous. My husband loved it too! Thank you again!

    1. My pleasure! I am so glad you enjoyed the pizza and I was more than happy to help! I know the blog can seem a bit over the top with the recipes, but there are some great healthier hidden gems in there too!

  15. I just had to write you back again and say thank you! The recipes you sent are EXACTLY what I had hoped for. I just read all of them and think I will just use those and nothing else for the next month. They are perfect for paleo/low carb/weight watchers/south beach etc. Every meat dish looks divine and the salads look amazing. I can almost taste them and know they must be delicious! Thanks again! This is my new favorite blog!

    1. You just made my day! I am so glad I hit the nail on the head for you! And please don’t hesitate to come back and let me know how things are going! I am going to tag the recipes for you to grab them easier too.

  16. Hi! This sounds and looks AWESOME and I can’t wait to try it! One question, though; what size tortilla do you use? The large wheat tortilla that has 6 net carbs or the original size which has 3 net carbs?

    Thank you!

  17. You’re a life saver! I got into a horrible lunch rut, AND I’m craving pizza seriously bad! Usually pizza falls under that “junk food” list and I just write it off as a thing I don’t want to eat. I work hard to take off the few pounds I have lost, and I really don’t want them back LOL. So eating the same things every day…. ugh. I’m a person who likes a big variety. I get bored easily. So you can imagine my excitement to see this recipe! I even have everything on hand except the tortillas. I have some regular whole wheat tortillas, and they are a few more points, but I have the points to use, so it all works out! I’ve seen the tortillas you used at Walmart, so I’m going to pick some up next shopping trip. Thanks for a new lunch and a pizza for my craving!

  18. I will definitely try the cheese! I like to prebrown my tortilla just a little before adding the toppings, then add toppings, then put back into oven to finish cooking. This makes it less flimsy and adds more crunch in the end without having to use the oil.

  19. I’ve been on WW old points for 7 weeks. Lost 15 so far. Was hankering for Pizza so bad. Found your recipe made it but added a little pineapple to mine. Man I ate the whole thing it was so good.my tortilla was 1 point. Only 5 WW points.

    1. That sounds delicious! If you haven’t already, you should check out my new site cookingwithpoints.com to find more recipes like this. 🙂

  20. This recipe is delicious! I use Kroger pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, and very thin sliced salami and Mission whole wheat tortillas with only 4 carbs. It is so good.
