Lower Calorie Pizza Toppings

These lower calorie pizza toppings are all great options to add to the top of your weight loss pizza.

I could not be sure what toppings you wanted to add, so I have included the calories for each of the toppings below. This way you can mix and match and create the prefect slice for you.

If you were to add all of the toppings, it would add 37 calories per slice of pizza. I like choose 1-3 to keep the calories (and the price) low.

How to Make Low Calorie Pizza

You can easily meal prep these low calorie pizzas! Here is how I do it either by the slice, or by the pizza.

How to Meal Prep Low Cal Pizzas:

  • By the slice: Make the healthy pizza recipe according to the directions. Slice and allow to cool completely. Add 1-3 slices to a freezer bag or container and freeze or refrigerate. To reheat, add to the oven at 350 degrees and bake for 5-10 minutes, or microwave for 1-3 minutes, or pop in the toaster oven.
  • Entire Pizza: Prepare the pizza dough and sauce as directed. Then top the rolled out dough with sauce and desired toppings. Cover well with plastic wrap (leaving on the baking tray). Place in the freezer, will hold for up to a month. To bake, follow the directions below on baking, but add 2-5 minutes if still frozen.

How to Make Weight Loss Pizza:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and set out a pizza tray or baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the pizza sauce ingredients and mix well. Set aside to marinate.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the flour, yogurt, garlic salt and Italian seasonings and mix until combined.
  4. Form into a ball of dough.
  5. Lay a piece of parchment paper out on the countertop (it should be the size of the pizza tray you set out).
  6. Place the dough in the center of the parchment paper. Top the dough with a little flour and a second piece of parchment paper.
  7. Use a rolling pin to roll it out. It will be about 1/4 inch thick.
  8. Move the pizza dough to the pizza tray, and remove the top layer of parchment paper.
  9. Spread the sauce over the pizza crust. And add your desired toppings.
  10. Transfer the pizza into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, when the crust is golden it’s done. Remove the pizza from the oven and slice into eight slices.
