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. It is what I make when I want to feel good about what I am eating when I am really craving a Fig & Pig Pizza from Tin Roof Bistro (Google it!)

  1. Do yourself a favor and lose the canola oil. Try an avocado oil spray instead. Why, you say? Google canola oil and see what you get about how horrible an oil it is. You can also get a crispier “crust” by putting the tortilla in the oven first until crispy, then add sauce and toppings. Yummy!

  2. I just ran across this recipe but have been cooking the same thing for awhile now. I preheat a heavy cast iron pizza pan at 550* and cook the pizza for three minutes and it come out perfect with the cheese melted and the crust nice and crispy. No need to spritz with cooking spray. Being diabetic it’s really nice to be able to eat pizza again. For a nice variation sometimes I use homemade enchilada sauce instead of the marinara and pepperjack cheese instead of mozzarella.

  3. Great idea and recipe Sabrina! I did pre-bake the tortillas for a few minutes before applying the toppings to ensure a crispy crust as per one of your supplemental comments. Worked great. Thanks for this, you rock!

  4. Just started Weight Watchers last week and have been having some crazy cravings. This is delicious! I highly suggest using the 1/2 second spray of cooking spray that the recipe mentions.

  5. I do a similar thing but I heat some olive oil in a pan, lay down my tortilla then create the pizza. Crisps the tortilla very well. If need be I use a cover for a minute or so to melt the cheese, but I find it melts well enough as I am building on a warm tortilla!

    1. The two things I do to keep it from being soggy are make sure I’m using the whole wheat tortillas and the quick spritz of canola spray right before cooking. You can also pre-bake the tortilla before adding the toppings or cook on an oven safe cooling rake on top of the cookie sheet. Hopefully these options will help you get a crispier crust!

  6. I make these too and put thin slices of red pepper and red onion on it but I partially bake the tortilla before I put ingredients on it to finish baking!

  7. This was delicious! Will definitely be my go to pizza
    How did you calculate the nutritional values though i.e. it is showing 46 calories however the La Tortillas Low Carb Whole Wheat tortilla on its own is 45 calories. I’ve just recently started tracking nutritional values and want to make sure I’m doing so correctly.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it!
      I actually use a program that once I add in all the ingredients, it calculates it for me. I’ll have to double check it, thanks.

        1. It’s actually a plug in to the website that calculates it and not a separate program. I’m sure there are many online that you can use to help calculate when not attached to a website.

  8. Oh my goodness! I was hesitant about using any tortilla for crust, let alone low-carb? This has to be one of the best pizza’s I’ve ever had. Dare I say…better than delivery? Definitely a lot healthier!! Thank you for the great recipe and tips!

  9. Made this pizza tonight, was really good. Definitely satisfied that pizza craving. But I was wondering if there might be a way to make the crust a little crispier.

    1. So glad you enjoyed it! If you’d like it a bit crispier, allow it to sit directly on the oven rack for just a bit (watch it so it doesn’t burn). Hope this helps!

  10. DELICIOUS!! I just made these with Ole low carb high fiber tortillas. I sprayed the canola oil on the tortillas first and put them in at 425 for a couple minutes. Once I took them out, I spread with some garlic herb butter and then built the pizza. Back in for 6-8 minutes and PERFECT!!!

  11. While I was looking at this recipe, I wanted to read the reviews, It sounded really good. However, I don’t think I read any actual “review”. Most of the comments were about what it looked like or sounded yummy. I was super excited to make it! I went to Trader Joes and couldn’t find the lite Mozz, but they did have a lite blend and a fat free Feta, so I got both of those. Went home and made it for myself, since I am working on the WW Points. My boyfriend insisted that he have what I was having cuz it looked so amazing! I had to share so that cut my points in half 😉 I made it as a veggie pizza with mushrooms, onions, peppers and tomatoes. It was AMAZING! I can’t wait to make it again. The only thing I need to work out is the center of the tortilla was not crispy as I would like. Even as a snack this recipe is awesome. I highly recommend it and it only takes minutes to make! Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

    1. So glad you enjoyed it, Mary! It’s one of my favorite quick and easy WW recipes and I just had to share it!

  12. 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.

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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  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. 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.

  18. 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!

  19. 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)

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

  20. 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!
    Jan

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

  21. Pepperoni pizza is always a good idea and this lightened up version looks delicious!

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. Tortilla pizza has to be one of my favorite ways to have pizza. I LOVE when it gets really crispy. It’s almost like a pizza chip it’s so crispy!

    1. It is! To me it tastes like Dominos thin crust, which is my favorite delivery pizza, cracker crispy!

  25. MMm, this looks amazing! I love this pizza. It’s one of the many reasons I love Trader Joe’s.

  26. 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!

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

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

  29. 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!

  30. 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!

  31. This would be a great quick and easy lunch to make. I never thought to make a pizza with a tortilla before!

  32. 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.

  33. This looks so tasty. I always prefer a thin crust pizza, so this would be perfect for me!

  34. What a brilliant idea for a pizza! I never would have thought of using a Tortilla! I love it! Looks delicious!

  35. Yum! I cannot believe I never thought to use a tortilla as a pizza rust. And at just 6 points? Yes please!

  36. Yum! I’m watching my weight so this is a recipe that I would be interested in trying. I’d add a little broccoli to my pizza too!

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

  38. I’m not much of a dieter, Sabrina, but your photos make this pizza totally inspiring! Nice to be reminded that it’s possible to be decadent and healthy at the same time 🙂

    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.

  39. What an awesome way to make pizza. I just did a pizza recipe on my blog too for allergy-friendly families. No eggs, dairy, gluten, wheat, or tomatoes!

    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!

  40. These are awesome! Reminds me of my family’s recipe of using English muffins as the pizza “crust.” Such a nice change from traditional pizza.

  41. 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. I wish I didn’t love turkey pepperoni so much, haha. Even when I add veggies I have to add the pepperoni!

  42. 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!

  43. That looks absolutely delicious! I am supposed to be watching what I eat so the next time I crave pizza I will be serving this!

  44. I have never done a points system for weight loss, but I would love to understand it all to help better get nutrition. This looks good!

    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.
