If you're exploring a low-carb diet, but still hoping to have some fun with your eating, you may want to try maestro chef Wolfgang Puck's lower-carb pizza dough recipe.

Famous for his signature pizzas, Wolfgang Puck came up with a reduced-carb version of his pizza dough.

A regular cheese pizza is 140 calories per slice, plus 20 grams of carbohydrates. Wolfgang Puck's cheese pizza is a little less than 60 calories, and contains just 5.6 grams of carbohydrates.


  • 1/4 ounce yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Cooking Directions

    In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in 1/4 cup of the warm water.

    In a mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the flour and the salt. Add the oil, yeast mixture, and the remaining 3/4 cup of water and mix on low speed.

    Form dough into 2 1/2 ounce balls. With a floured rolling pin, roll out the dough to form 8-inch rounds. Bake at 500 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.

    *After making the dough, you can add a variety of toppings, such as chicken, eggplant, shrimp, broccoli rabe, raw veggies, plus tomato sauce and some cheese.
