No Count Pizza

I do enjoy making pizzas using the WW wraps on No Count, but I decided to try these as I wanted a thicker, ‘breadier’ base. I never thought Iโ€™d see the day when I was using yogurt as an ingredient in pizza but the two-ingredient dough has really taken off and you can make it No Count by using oatmeal instead of flour. I made this for one person and, even though it was a small pizza, it was too filling for a lunch so you might want to share this between two๐Ÿ˜Š

This is free on No Count.ย  If following WW Flex, itโ€™s quite high at 12 points because of the oatmeal used.

ย ย 

Ingredients (makes 1 or 2):

For the base:

  • 100g oatmeal
  • 100g low fat natural yogurt
  • a pinch of salt
  • a tsp of dried oregano

For the topping:

  • 15g tomato puree
  • a tin of tuna in brine
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • sweetcorn
  • 26g Protein cheese
  • 4 olives

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Mix all the ingredients for the base together.
  • Spray a frying pan with low-cal spray and put the mixture into the pan. Use a spoon to spread it out until youโ€™ve made the shape of a pizza base.ย  (It is very sticky at this stage.)
  • Turn on the heat and cook for a couple of minutes. When itโ€™s firm enough, turn it over for another minute. (You donโ€™t want to cook it the whole way through as itโ€™s going to go in the oven as well.)
  • Cover an oven tray with greaseproof paper and put the base on top. Spread over the 15g tomato puree before adding the other toppings.
  • Place in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!

This is the oatmeal I use – it’s free on No Count:

    1. Hi Dawn, glad you like the website. ๐Ÿ’• 26g of Protein cheese is free and 79g is 1sp. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’• You can also have 27g WW Greek salad cheese for 0sp – I like it with roasted tomatoes although it is rather salty. Hope you enjoy what NC has to offer, Helen xxxxxx

  2. I was so sceptical about a ‘porridge/not quite overnight oats’ base, that I nearly didn’t bother…. Oh ye of little faith. This was truly yummy and satisfying and flavoursome – I’m a BIG no count pizza fan. Thank you for having the guts to find out quite how good you can make food and still eat well.

      1. Last week of my school/teacher holiday so I’m planning how I’m going to maintain my ‘fairly’ good behaviour when I return to the classroom. Stress and teenagers lead me to cake and biscuits. Lemon Oaties here I come ๐Ÿ˜‹

        1. Hi Heather, I know what you mean – I’m a teacher too:-) I’ll be choosing something to bake ready for that sweet-tooth kicking in. Enjoy your last week off and hope you have a good start to the term, Helen xxxxx

    1. Awww thank you for your lovely comment ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• Itโ€™s great to here you like the pizza ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I canโ€™t wait to try some different toppings on it ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’• Hope you enjoy the rest of your week, Helen xxxx

  4. This looks great can I ask where you bought the fine grain oatmeal I have only ever seen medium grain

    1. Hi Patricia, I bought the fine oatmeal in Booths: theyโ€™re a store in the NW of England. You can buy it online though if you do a search on Google ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’• The medium oatmeal should be ok to use though ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• Helen xxxxxx

      1. Could you not whizz the medium oatmeal in a processor, I do that in a lot of the recipes using oats the longer you whizz the more it goes like flour.

        1. Hi Gayle ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’• yes you could. I havenโ€™t tried it as the oatmeal I use is very fine already and my food processor would not get it any finer (I need a new one). Hope you have a good weekend ๐Ÿ’• Helen xxxxx
