  1. Where do you find the fat free mozzarella? I’ve had a really hard time finding reduced fat cheeses. Maybe I just don’t know what to look for.

    1. Hello. I have found it at Walmart and Meijer. If you can’t find it maybe use low-fat and decrease amount to keep the points lower. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Wendy Rogers says:

    Where are you finding low-fat or no fat Mozzarella cheese? Are you using just part skim? I am on WW and was looking for some new dinner options and this one sounds amazing. But I know if I don’t have the correct cheese the points will go up dramatically. Thank you!

  3. This was amazing. I wasn’t doing it as a weight watchers thing, just as recipe in general, and my whole family loved it. We had it for dinner last night, my husband and I had it for lunch today, and we have the last of the leftovers packed for lunch tomorrow. And I can’t wait to make it again!

  4. Allison Thrift says:

    If I use whole wheat rotini on the purple plan (0 points) would that bring the points down any?

  5. Amanda Lee says:

    One recipie says 12 oz of pasta the other says 8 oz of pasta what is the right one to use ? Then I see to use pasta sauce then another says diced tomatoes what one should we be using? Sorry I guess I seem to be the only one that sees the difference in the 2 the printable one says 8 oz then the one on the sight says 12 oz

    1. Thanks for noticing the discrepancy. When the recipe was updated some of the data didn’t transfer right. It should be fixed now. We appreciate it.

  6. Would the points be a lot more if I used ground beef? My family and I just don’t like the taste of ground turkey. I’m not sure how to calculate for the points (I’m on green) if I changed up the meat.

    1. The points will definitely change with ground beef. Would your family tolerate 1/2 turkey and 1/2 beef? That would help lower the point count.

    2. Michelle Reynolds says:

      @Marci,

      I will use 96 lean and it will change but for me I will take the points!

  7. Purple Point correction to my prior comment. 3 Purple for 6 servings.

  8. I dont See where it lists the smart points. What’s 1-5-20.3 mean? ???? sorry! Looks tasty going to have tonight!

    1. Updated for new programs 1-5-20 (this is the date). 3 points per one-cup serving on all 3 plans. Blue – Purple – Green  is the points. THANKS

      1. If you use Wheat Rotini is would be 2 points (Purple) for 6 servings (per my calculator).

        Just FYI, in the first WEIGHT WATCHERS PEPPERONI PIZZA CASSEROLE INGREDIENTS, I didn’t see the pepperoni slices.

        Thank you for sharing.

  9. I made this for meal prep 2 weeks ago. I portioned it, kept a couple for lunches and froze the remaining containers. 1. I made several coworkers, both mine AND my husband’s, quite jealous of our lunches. 2. It freezes quite nicely! 3. It’s really very tasty! Thanks so much, this is going in my tried and true collection. (If I had such a collection in a pretend-highly organized land…)

  10. How many points would this be if you used less oil, or used sugar free, oil free sauce?

  11. Sandra Potter says:

    Enjoyed this recipe! Used whole grain/wheat pasta; Paul Newman’s Marinara Sauce because it is beautifully flavored and the rest as listed. My grandsons are cooking enthusiasts and I think they will nail this one! My husband wants this one added to the weekly rotation! It’s a hit. Thanks.

    1. Hi there. This is what I was thinking. How does the WW pasta change the point value? Thank you!

      1. Good question. I have never used WW pasta. You’ll have to recalculate the recipe with that as an ingredient. THANKS

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

  13. I have homemade zero point marinara sauce would that work instead of pasta sauce?

  14. Can this be made in an instant pot. I just got one and am looking for ww freestyle smart point recipes

    1. That’s a good question. I am just starting to convert a few recipes to IP. I’ll add this one. Thanks!

  15. Can this be made ahead and frozen? If so please tell me what to do and what temp and how long to cook it from frozen
    Thank you

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

    1. Jackie Flood says:

      what kind of lower calorie pasta?

      1. Fiber Gourmet Pasta – I purchase this online. High in fiber and lower in calories. Really like it

    2. @Michele Brosius,
      Making this right now with Muir pasta sauce. Smells so good!

  17. 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 🙂

  18. Jessica S. says:

    This was so tasty! I will definitely be making this again! ????????

  19. 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?

    1. Thanks for stopping by Pamela. We are working on adding nutritional information to our recipes, but for now all we have is WW points. Thank you!

    This was sooooo good! Totally satisfied my pizza craving!!!
