Cooking Pizzas

2 Ingredient pizza base – greek yoghurt and flour

Yes, you read that right. I made a pizza base with 1 cup of greek yoghurt and 1 cup of self raising flour. I have never made my own base before but saw this recipe and had to try it.

I have always had the fear that making your own dough was hard until I made my own pasta SO when I heard of a 2 step, 2 ingredient (taking 8 minutes) dough recipe, I was onto it!

2 Step pizza dough w/ greek yoghurt and flour– makes 1 pizza to serve 1-2 

Ingredients: 1 cup greek yoghurt, 1 cup self raising flour. Seriously.

Directions: 

  1. Combine 1 cup greek yoghurt with 1 cup self raising flour
  2. Knead on a floured bench for 6-8 minutes until a ball of dough has formed
  3. Dust ball with flour and roll into a pizza base with a rolling pin (or a round glass bottle – I used my olive oil bottle)
  4. Place on a pizza tray and start topping with your pizza stuff – it will take about 25-30 minutes in the oven to cook (providing its no thicker than 1 inch)

 

Yes – THAT IS ALL. It didn’t taste weird like greek yoghurt or anything – it was this really nice light tasty pizza base and that is how I am making ALL my dough from now on.

I topped it with cherry and truss tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, pesto and some basil leaves.  I urge you to try this, it is so simple and you know exactly what is in your pizza base plus it’s cheaper.

 

I did want to try it partially because I didn’t believe for a second it would be that easy. I proved myself wrong and impressed myself at the same time (it sounds like I’m selling a magic bean?!)

PLEASE try this, just for the novelty of making your own pizza base with greek yoghurt? Promise? 

If you are after a lighter, crispier base I would recommend making my Moroccan spiced pizza w/ eggplant, rocket, lemon and yoghurt which is also delish.

Has anyone made this before? Or have any epic pizza topping combinations I should try? There is also a sneak peak of my next recipe in the last photo – can anyone guess what it is? 

Thank you for reading and have the most wonderful day!

        Hey Anna, I did some research and I haven’t been able to find anything that says it will work – sorry! Thanks, Bec

    Aw really? How far out do you live Nancy? Kinda jealous I’m missing living in a small(er) town at the moment. City life can be hectic! xo

    No 🙁 I have to go to the bigger cities for that. What a bummer 🙁

    No! I couldn’t tell at all that it was yoghurt!

    Hi Bec,
    This sounds totally delicious. I’m sure my son won’t even notice the Greek yoghurt in the base!

    Oh goodness! I’m not sure.. maybe its the brand of yoghurt? I followed a recipe of 1 to 1 and mine worked fine, I did use an additional 1/4 of a cup or so for sprinkling the bench, rolling it out and keeping it un stuck from my hands etc.. but I’m not sure?! I shall try it again and see?

    I TRIED this recipe and ended up using like 3 cups of flour instead of one…. What’s ya secret lady?

    Oh my gosh, this looks so goooood! I can’t believe it you made it with Greek yogurt. I love Greek yogurt…. I’ll try it and let you know.

    What a great recipe! I’ve always used just water and flour but this sounds really interesting 🙂

    And vegan and dairy free x

    Do you have soy cheese where you live Nancy? Its not half bad!

  • Reply Dancing Through Sunday August 1, 2014 at 5:43 pm

    Funny you say that Mia, thats the exact same reason I never made it. It was easier to buy them however now I’m doing this every time! Its fun and I get more satisfaction knowing I made it on my own (but it wasn’t too hard haha..) Perfect balance. x

  • Reply mia August 1, 2014 at 5:41 pm

    This is so amazing! I’ve never made my own pizza base as all the recipe i found sounded too hard or taking too much time. But i will definitely try your recipe. Can’t believe it’s just 2 ingredients. Well done! I’m pinning this now 🙂

    Looks sooooo good!! I miss cheese pizza 🙁

  • Reply Dancing Through Sunday July 31, 2014 at 8:21 pm

    I love caramelised onion on pizzas, I will be giving this a go for sure! Let me know how you go if you make the dough, hey that rhymes!

  • Reply Dancing Through Sunday July 31, 2014 at 8:20 pm

    I do to! I think thats why I never made my own dough! The probiotics in the yoghurt or something makes it rise, plus its easy as – enough for me!

  • Reply Dancing Through Sunday July 31, 2014 at 8:19 pm

    It was a nice surprise! Let me know if you do 🙂

  • Reply Erica Bates July 31, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    I’ll be giving that a go for sure! As for an epic pizza topping, a friend suggested I try making her favourite……… Caramelised onion, fresh corn kernels and crumbled blue cheese….even though it sounded unusual i had to try it. I used a lavash bread base and I added some chopped fresh asparagus…….and yes…..it was yummy alright.There’s something about the textures and flavour combinations that just works ….. But of course you must be a blue cheese lover! Next time I will try your greek yoghurt pizza dough with it.

  • Reply Nicole July 31, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    No way! This is awesome. I have a vendetta against yeast. I will be trying this ASAP

  • Reply Caity July 31, 2014 at 11:08 am

    Wow! I would have never thought of greek yogurt to make pizza dough! It looks so good, I will definitely have to try this the next time I make pizza!
    must be magic
