I needed a little comfort food tonight and decided on pizza. Back to the Magical Mommy Binder I went and scrounged up an old recipe for pizza crust made with whole grain oat flour (great source of fiber, higher in protein, and lower in carbs than other grains). Add to that some fat-free tomato sauce (really spaghetti sauce, ’cause I love that), fat-free (or low-fat) mozzarella, and some diced ham steak, and you’ve got an awesome pizza. I would have added some pineapple chunks to make it a Hawaiian pizza if I’d had any!

Healthy Ham and Cheese Pizza: Gluten-Free, Low-Fat, 100% Simply Filling

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 8 pieces

Serving Size: 1/4 of the pizza

Healthy Ham and Cheese Pizza: Gluten-Free, Low-Fat, 100% Simply Filling


  • 3 cups oat flour
  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope of active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1.5 Tbsp. sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup hot water


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Mix the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar
  3. Add the olive oil and water and work into a dough
  4. Kneed the dough on a floured surface for five minutes
  5. Spread the dough out on a non-stick cookie pan, using your fingers to stretch it nearly to the edges -- you want it as thin as you can get it without breaking it
  6. Put the dough (without any toppings) in the oven for 10 minutes
  7. Take out the partially cooked dough and add any sauce and toppings you like
  8. Finish baking for 25 minutes
  9. Allow pizza to cool for 10 minutes in the pan to further cook the bottom a bit

This is 100% WW Simply Filling if you use fat-free cheese, but note that it does include your healthy oils for the day. If you’re doing WW PointsPlus, this is about 5 points per slice (includes toppings), or 38 for the entire pizza. I had 1 1/2 slices and was totally full (no kidding). The oat flour makes for a very filling meal.
