Make Pizza Dough with Two Ingredients
The art of bread-baking has always intimidated me. There seems to be so much that has to go into creating the dough that I've always never attempted to try and make my own. I've managed to stumble upon an amazing pizza dough recipe that doesn't require any yeast or other complicated ingredients. Instead, this recipe only calls for two ingredients:

Greek yogurt and self-raising flour. I'm not kidding. That's all you need to make your pizza dough! Just one cup of self-raising flour and one cup of Greek yogurt. Mix it up real good to get your dough.

Depending on the quality of the flour or the yogurt, you might need to adjust the measurements. I found that I had to use way more flour (about 1 and 1/2 cup) to get the dough to have a thicker consistency. Knead the dough with a rolling pin to get it all flat and start adjusting the dough to the shape of your pan.

Once you've assembled your dough, it's time for the fun part- toppings! I'll leave it to you to choose your own toppings but in my case, I used cheese (lots and lots of cheese), pepperoni slices, shredded ham, onions, and mushrooms.

Since I had a lot of dough left over, I decided to make my pizza a stuffed crust. First I placed the cheese over it and then rolled the edges of the pizza dough over to cover it.

Place your homemade pizza into the oven at 200*C for about 20 minutes or until the crust has browned. This is when the dough begins to smell amazing; the yogurt really gives it an enticing and appetising scent.

And voila! An extremely easy pizza dough recipe that only calls for two ingredients. I couldn't believe it myself until I tried it out and it does work! The dough is extremely fragrant and delicious! I hope that by sharing this recipe, I can help out other people who aren't good with yeast make their own pastries. This pizza dough recipe can also work for pies. Let me know if you tried it out and if it worked for you!

Would you consider making this with spelt flour? I'd be curious to know if it would work! It looks yummy.

Hi Samantha,
Your pizza looks good.
Will plain low fat yoghurt do?
Have you tried it with sour cream?

I tried the 2 ingredients pizza and it was superb. That's how I'll be making it from now on although I would have to plan it and buy the yoghurt specially. I used wholemeal flour and no-fat yoghurt. Thanks Samantha.
