Pizza Crust
    1. 1 cup / 120 g whole grain flour, regular or gluten-free
    2. 1 tsp. / 5 g baking powder, preferably aluminum-free
    3. ¼ tsp. / 1½ g salt
    4. ⅔ cup / 160 ml tepid water
    5. 2 tsp. / 8 g active yeast
    6. 1 tsp. / 4 g raw sugar
    7. 1 tsp. / 5 ml olive oil
  Pizza Sauce
    1. ¼ cup / 60 ml tomato paste, preferably no-added-sugar/salt
    2. 1 Tbsp. / 2½ g or more fresh basil leaves, chopped or 1 tsp. / 1 g or more dried
    3. 1 Tbsp. / 2 g or more fresh oregano, chopped or 1 tsp. / 1 g or more dried
    4. 1 clove or more fresh garlic, minced or 1 tsp. / 3 g or more dried, granulated or powdered
Other Pizza Toppings*
  1. 4 oz. / 120 g cheese, grated, dairy or vegan
  2. ½-1 cup / 120-240 g vegetables of choice


    1. Brush or mist olive oil on the bottom of a lidded non-stick or cast iron medium-sized (8-9 inch / 20-23 cm) skillet
    2. Mix dough ingredients together in a bowl until uniform.
    3. Spread dough mixture evenly onto oiled bottom of skillet.
    4. Blend together pizza sauce ingredients, and spread evenly over dough mixture in pan.
    5. Sprinkle desired toppings over dough and sauce.
    6. Cover skillet tightly, and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
    7. Remove skillet cover slightly so that it allows steam to escape, and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes; the additional 5 minutes will result in a thinner, crispier crust
Serve hot. Leftovers can be frozen and reheated. * For heavier protein-rich toppings, each 1 oz. / 30 g = 1 protein exchange. Serving size: ¼ pizza (about 4 ounces/115 g) Exchanges per Serving: 1½ Carb, 1 Protein, 1 Fat, 1 Veg

    • Hi, Chadwellt. If you use the personal version of the Menu Planner application (access it by clicking on the “My Food Choices icon in the toolbar above your current menu), you will see some of our recipes in the “Recipes” subcategory of each major food group. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange mode” in the toolbar above your menu. It doesn’t need to be a perfect match to work.

      • I’m doing the 8 week plan and one day I have a pizza. lunch shows 4 ounces of pizza, plain cheese, regular crust, 1 serv of vegetable of your choice, 1 ounce of Pizza Toppings, and 1 Tbsp of Honey Mustard Dressing. Can I add tomato paste to the pizza crust or does that count as a serving of vegetable or 1 ounce of the pizza toppings?

    • Hi aliceband, I think all I need is new inspiration, so all I do is look, joined a few groups and search for new meals! I believe it’s fun to start something new, maybe to do with my age, exciting!!! Otherwise I’m in the same boat really xxx

  1. Hi,
    I’m a new…bee… just signed up today, but find the recipes that the already customers have easier recipes and ingredients than the recipe, is there a site that I can go to for ingredients that I might have on hand already?
