Servings: 3



  • 1 cup self rising flour OR 1 cup all purpose flour + 1.5 tsp baking powder + ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup plain full-fat or low-fat Greek yogurt plus 1-2 Tablespoons if needed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • cup pizza sauce
  • ¾ cup ground chicken or turkey sausage cooked
  • cup yellow onion
  • cup bell pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella loosely packed


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. If you don’t have self rising flour, make your own by combining flour with baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add greek yogurt and additional salt to flour and stir to combine until a dough starts to form. If the dough is too thick, add more yogurt, 1 Tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too thin, add a sprinkle more of flour.

  • Use your hands to shape the dough into a smooth ball and all the dry flour is gone. This took about 2-3 minutes. Cover dough ball completely in flour (this will prevent it from sticking to the counter or roller).
