How many Freestyle Smart Points is in Pepperoni Pizza Casserole Recipe?

Updated with Freestyle Smart Points | 5 Points Per Serving (using 99% FF turkey burger) If you are using lean ground turkey it’s 6 Freestyle Smart Points per serving. You can even lower the points if you use sugar and oil free tomato sauce or cut down on the olive oil you use during the sauteeing.   Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza Casserole Recipe Each Weight Watchers Pepperoni Pizza Casserole should be divided into 12 equal servings. This will probably yield you about 1 cup per serving. Unfortunately, I don’t accurately measure my casseroles like I probably should.

    Most of your recipes have nutrional info. This one doesn’t and my daughter tracks calories, not SP. Do you have the nutrional info available?

    Very good! Used lower calorie pasta. Added mushrooms to the ground turkey, pasta & sauce mixture. Also added green peppers to the top. My husband had an additional 1/2 serving. This goes in my keeper file 🙂

    I’ve noticed several of the WW pizza recipes say to use pasta sauce, not pizza sauce. Why is this? Ty!

      Most pizza sauce is high in sugar making it higher in points. Thanks

    Would a serving be about a 1 cup? I prefer to measure mine out.
