Pizza Bombs -- 2 Points on Freestyle Plan

This simple two ingredient dough recipe is really popular now on Weight Watcher's pages on Facebook.  You can use it to make bagels and top them with your favorite seasonings, buns for sandwiches, flat bread, and pizza crust.

With the new Freestyle program, the dough is much lower in points than traditional recipes.  The Greek yogurt gives it sort of a sourdough flavor.

These are simple to make and with only 2 points per bomb, you can get your pizza fix and not use all your daily points!

Seal the balls tightly to prevent the cheese and marinara from leaking.  As you can see in the photo, mine leaked.  That's fine with me,  I like the crispy cheese! 

Makes 12
2 Smart Points each

1 cup flour
1 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt
12 slices turkey pepperoni
2 oz. grated mozzarella cheese
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese
Marinara sauce ***
1 egg white, beaten to a froth with a teaspoon of water

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and yogurt to make a soft dough.

Divide into 12 pieces.  Roll into balls.  Using a rolling pin, roll each ball into 3” circles.

Place about a teaspoon of marinara sauce on each circle.  Top with 1 slice of turkey pepperoni. Top with the cheeses. 

Fold over the edges and pinch to seal. Put the sealed balls onto a nonstick cookie sheet with folded edge down.

Brush the top of each ball with the egg wash.

Bake at 400° until brown, about 20 minutes.
