Last week I shared a recipe on our Facebook page for a 2 ingredient pizza dough that I have seen all over the internet and our readers went nuts.  I had to try it.

How do you make easy pizza dough?

No one could believe that you can make pizza dough with 2 ingredients.  So, we put it to the test.  Greek yogurt and self rising flour, that’s it.  Seriously!

No rise time, at all.  I did have to add a little flour to get it to come together better.

First I tried out a simple pepperoni pizza.  It was a success.  A tender pizza crust with a slightly crisp exterior.

The next day we made pepperoni pizza, cheese, pizza, lemon basil pizza, bread sticks, cheesy bread, cinnamon sticks and chocolate pizza.  Guess what?  They were all phenomenal.

I even tried a batch using 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt in place of the self-rising flour.  It came out perfectly.

There are a lot of pizza ideas below check out the Helpful Tips section below.

Helpful Tips to make 2-Ingredient Pizza Dough:

  • If mixing by hand combine ingredients in a bowl and mix with spoon until combined.  Flip out onto a well floured counter top and knead 5-8 minutes.
  • If you do not have self-rising flour, you can substitute: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt.  Mix together and use as directed in the recipe.
  • Pepperoni pizza  – roll out dough to desired shape and thickness.  Brush dough with olive oil.  Top with marinara, mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.  Place on a baking sheet prepared with olive oil and corn meal (if desired).  Bake in a 450°F preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until crust is crisp and toppings are browned.
  • Garlic Cheese pizza – roll out dough to desired shape and thickness.  Brush dough with olive oil.  Sprinkle with garlic powder.  Top with marinara and mozzarella cheese.  Place on a baking sheet prepared with olive oil and corn meal (if desired).  Bake in a 450°F preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until crust is crisp and cheese is browned.
  • Garlic Bread sticks – roll out dough to desired shape and thickness.  Brush dough with olive oil.  Sprinkle with garlic powder.  Place on a baking sheet prepared with olive oil and corn meal (if desired).  Cut into bread sticks.  Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until crust is crisp.
  •  Lemon Basil Pizza – roll out dough to desired shape and thickness.  Brush dough with olive oil.  STop with marinara, lemon slices and mozzarella cheese slices.  Place on a baking sheet prepared with olive oil and corn meal (if desired).  Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until crust is crisp and toppings are browned.
  •  Cheesy Garlic Bread –  roll out dough to desired shape and thickness.  Brush dough with olive oil.  Sprinkle with garlic powder, top with shredded Italian cheese blend.  Place on a baking sheet prepared with olive oil and corn meal (if desired).  Cut into bread sticks.  Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, until crust is crisp and cheese is browned.

  1. Love, Love this recipe. I like to add extra seasonings to the dough like: cajun, granulated garlic, pizza spice, seasoned salt, no salt seasoning, oregano, basil, sugar, honey etc. whatever I am in the mood for. I like the suggestions of others here to brush the dough with olive oil, butter etc. for some of the pizza recipes I make.

  2. I just saw this in a link from The Kitchn website, and I think I may have to try it. I pride myself on making a darn good yeasted pizza crust (using an at-least-overnight rise in the fridge), and I'm pretty sure that will still be my standard, but there are times when I really want pizza and don't have a batch of dough made up. I will keep this on hand as an idea to try for when I want pizza RIGHT NOW, DARN IT.

  3. I'm assuming you mean 8 ounces of plain Greek yogurt–not the individually-packaged "cup" of yogurt, which is only 6 ounces or so?

  4. We use this recipe for making flatbreads also, just roll them nice and thin and throw them on a char grill or griddle pan

  5. How far in advance can this be made? I was looking to make it a few hours ahead Thank you in advance!

  6. LOVE THIS PIZZA! Made it for the first time today. Both crispy and chewy at the same time! I made it gluten free using Better Batter Gluten Free flour (1 cup), adding 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. I used 2% Fage yogurt and added 1 oz sour cream. Mixed and kneaded it in a KitchenAid stand mixer. Baked on a cookie sheet sprinkled first with cornmeal. Added pizza sauce,veggie toppings and pizza cheeses. Going to try baking it in a cast iron skillet next time–Can't wait!!

  7. used self raising wholemeal flour and some chia seeds to make it extra healthy and it was a delicious pizza will try again thanks

  8. have made this with all sorts of herbs and cheeses mixed in with the dough…love it! now i'm experimenting with the flavored yogurts, like honey or lemon, they're delicious!

  9. I first heard about this pizza recipe at my husband's cardio rehab nutrition class and then found it on your website. It is great! I used all purpose flour with baking powder and salt and added 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast. It made a wonderful crust, nice and crunchy. I tried out a weird idea for a pizza with leftovers that actually was pretty good. I call it my "goose poop" pizza. As a base sauce I made some guacamole with lots of garlic, then added the left-over goose meat from Christmas, layered cheese, red pepper, red onion, olives and more cheese and feta cheese and some shredded spinach with fresh basil. 😉

  10. Made it tonight for the first time. I didn't have any plain yogurt, so used sour cream as a substitute. I worked well. And yes, I probably used closer to 2 cups flour to get it to kneadable texture. Made one xtra large pizza and even had leftovers. I don't make pizza at home because it usually takes so long to mix it, let it rise, and well, you know the drill. This was so quick and easy to make. Thank you for this great recipe.

  11. Just wondering if anyone knows if the salt is necessary to more than just taste? We're dropping as much sodium as we can from our diet.

  12. WHY DIDN'T THE BLOGGER POST PHOTOGRAPH'S OF THE FINISHED PIZZA'S, WHEN THEY CAME OUT OF THE OVEN??????

  13. My boyfriend and I just made our second homemade pizza. The first one was awesome. On this one we used french onion dip in place of the yogurt. Not as healthy but the flavor is intense.

    1. They definitely do not taste like baking powder. It is a quick and easy recipe that our reader love. Give it a try and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

  14. I have tried to recipe many times, but can never get it to work. The dough will simply not bake through. The top/bottom is burned before the middle is more than just dough.

    I have tried both the time/heat that you suggests as well as longer and even warmer, but the dough will simply not bake through. This is how it looks:

  15. Sometimes I really find it hard to make pizza dough from scratch. So thank you for sharing this!

    I'm also thinking of trying my hand at making some authentic Italian bread. Do you have an easy-to-follow recipe for that, by any chance?

  16. I must say, I was looking so forward to making this pizza dough and putting all my favorite things on it. I believed all the wonderful reviews that I read and went for it full steam ahead. Big mistake. This was almost inedible. Followed the recipe and ingredients exactly and won't ever waste good Greek yogurt for this ever again. I have worked with self-rising flour for over 50 years and have never been disappointed. the crust was so greasy after it sat for a few minutes after baking, that there was a grease slick all over the pan and the bottom of the crust. There was nothing greasy or oily in the toppings or the sauce. I have no idea why this happened, but it happened on all 4 pizzas that I made. I'm going back to my tried and true yeasted dough. I can't type my user name in the comment as area, but I'm Terri Schroder. I hate anonymous posts and reviews.
