  • 159 Calories
  • 15g Protein
  • 17g Carbs
  • 3g fat


  • 120g self rising flour
  • 1-2 Garlic Cloves Crushed - I use Dorot frozen crushed garlic cubes from Trader Joes
  • 130g low fat greek yogurt - I prefer the 2% greek yogurt from Trader Joes - it's really creamy and has a slightly better protein content than most.  But, it will add a little fat and calories
  • 60g low fat cheese (I like mozzarella, but feel free to try different kinds of cheese)
  • Pinch baking powder
  • garlic salt (I just give a couple dashes - we'll call this to taste)
  • parsley flakes
  • cooking oil spray


  1. In a mixing bowl, mix flour, greek yogurt, crushed garlic, baking powder, garlic salt
  2. use your hands to form and kneed into dough 
  3. using a floured surface, cut into 4 equally sized pieces
  4. form each one into a ball
  5. roll each ball into the biggest piece you can
  6. put 15g cheese in the middle of each
  7. pinch all the corners together to create a pocket of cheese in the middle
  8. flip over so the pinched side is down and re-roll each into the biggest pieces you can
  9. oil pan on high heat
  10. cook each piece in the pan approx 2 min on each side - sprinkle parsley on each side while cooking.
