Pregistry’s Friday Recipe: 2-Ingredient Pizza Dough

Yes, you read correctly.

Just two ingredients – self-rising flour and Greek yogurt – and you’ve got a perfect stand-in for traditional (and many hours in the making) pizza dough.

No proofing, no rising, and no time! Simply knead the ingredients (by hand or with the dough hook attachment of your mixer), roll out your dough and add your favorite toppings!

We went with a traditional margherita here, incorporating fresh and shredded mozzarella, marinara sauce and fresh basil. But the sky’s the limit! Simply follow the recipe below as it is truly foolproof.

No self-rising flour? No problem! We’ve included a substitution at the end of the recipe.

2-Ingredient Pizza Dough:

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour, divided*
  • 1 cup (7 – 8 ounces) plain Greek yogurt
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Cornmeal, for dusting the baking sheet
  • Your choice of pizza toppings

Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. Place 1 cup of the flour and all of the yogurt in the bowl of a mixer. Use the paddle attachment to mix until ingredients are blended; switch to the dough attachment and knead for 5 minutes. Add the remaining 1/2 cup flour and continue kneading till the dough is smooth and only slightly tacky.

Turn dough out onto a floured worksurface and roll into a large round. Brush with olive oil. Dust a baking sheet with cornmeal and transfer the dough onto your sheet. Top with your pizza toppings and bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Raise the oven temperature to broil and continue baking till cheese is golden brown and bubbly (watch carefully to avoid burning). Let sit for a few minutes, slice and serve.

*Self-rising flour substitution: place 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour in a medium bowl. Add 2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and whisk to combine well.
