Hands down this is the best 2 Ingredient Easy Pizza Dough recipe I have used. I must admit when I first heard of it I thought it sounded a bit gimmicky and wasn’t expecting a great outcome < positive Polly here haha.
Honestly the pizza base is so good it’s not to thick and the right amount of chewy edges paired with the soft texture of the base makes it a winner in our house, in fact whenever I want a night off from cooking and suggest pizza, my hubby encourages me to make this recipe (some night off hey?) I can’t argue with him though this recipe is super quick and the longest part is kneading the dough but if you have a Thermomix or another kneading function on a kitchen aid then it’s even easier. The other great thing about this recipe is you don’t need to add yeast, there is enough in the yogurt that will help it rise.
We would love you to give this a go and let us know how you went in the comments.
2 Ingredient Pizza Dough
Cooking time: 25 mins
1 cup of natural low fat yogurt
3 cups of self raising flour
Flour to dust and roll
Place the ingredients into a Thermomix or mix master and combine well, you can also do by hand but will take longer.
Once mixed though place on knead setting in Thermomix for 7 minutes, if you don’t have a Thermomix or electric kneading machine you will need to do it by hand for approx. 10 minutes.
Dust with flour as you go so it doesn’t stick, it will be sticky at first this is normal. If you are still finding it a bit sticky then add some more flour it will be fine.
Once you have finished kneading, preheat an oven to 200 degrees.
Set dough aside for 10- 15 mins in a bowl with a tea towel over the top, I am not going to lie sometimes I don’t even do this step and it still works really well, if you let it sit the dough will rise a little more.
Place baking paper on the bench and pop dough on it, place another piece of baking paper over the top, this will stop the rolling pin from sticking. Roll until approx. 1 half cms thick.
Take a large dinner plate and put on the top of the dough and cut around it to get circle shape pizza, this is optional you can make square or any shape you like.
Pop onto a lined pizza tray and prick the top with a fork every couple of cms this will stop it from over rising.
Pop in the oven for 6 mins, enough just to start cooking it. This is good if you want to freeze the bases as well, once cooled you can freeze them and use at later date.
Pop your favourite topping on the pizza and pop back in the oven for 15 – 20 mins at 200 degrees Celsius. pizza is cooked when top and edges start to golden.Â Check out our favourite Pizza toppings here:
Slice and enjoy.
Serves: 4- 6 Recipe makes approx. 2 large bases.
Tip: If you don’t have a rolling pin use a bottle of wine and if you don’t have a bottle of wine then umm well I feel sorry for you haha < no really any jar or bottle can be used as a rolling pin!
