2 Ingredient Pizza Dough

When I shared a recipe on our Facebook page for a 2 ingredient pizza dough that I have seen all over the internet, our readers went nuts! 

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!

First, I tried out a simple pepperoni pizza, and it was a success. It had such a delicious, tender crust with a slightly crisp exterior.

The next day, we made more pizza, bread sticks, dessert pizzas, and more. Guess what? They were all phenomenal! 

Find plenty of ideas below, plus some helpful tips when making yogurt pizza dough that I discovered while experimenting. Happy baking!

Tips for Making Greek Yogurt Pizza Crust

  • Self-rising flour substitute: Make your own by combining 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Mix by hand. You can still make this recipe, even without a stand mixer! Simply add both ingredients to a bowl and mix with a spoon until combined. 

    Then, flip out onto a well-floured countertop and knead for 5-8 minutes.
  • Dough too sticky? Add more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to fix this problem. 

    But, keep in mind that you’ll also be incorporating more flour when rolling out the 2 ingredient dough — so it’s fine for it to be a little bit sticky at first!

What to Make with Yogurt Pizza Dough

There are so many ways to use this two ingredient pizza dough! Regardless of what you’re making, the general steps will always be the same:

  1. Roll out the dough to your desired shape and thickness.
  2. Brush with oil/butter, season, and add toppings.
  3. Bake at 450°F for 10-12 minutes, until the Greek yogurt pizza crust is crisp.

Here are just a few of the things we’ve tried and loved. Let us know what you come up with in the comments!

I also like to brush olive oil on my baking sheet and sprinkle it with cornmeal to give this Greek yogurt pizza crust that classic pizzeria texture on the bottom.

Pizza bases are easy to change the flavor! 

However, this step is completely optional

  • Pepperoni – Top dough with marinara, shredded mozzarella, and pepperoni. A little extra cheese over everything helps to hold the pepperoni in place!
  • Garlic Cheese – Sprinkle dough with garlic powder, then top with marinara and mozzarella cheese.
  • Lemon Basil – Top dough with marinara, lemon slices, and mozzarella cheese slices (not shreds).

For the best results, add your favorite toppings and seasonings. I like to add Italian seasoning to the top of my two-ingredient pizza dough for a fun flavor.

The best part is that you can add anything that you want! Don’t forget parmesan cheese on your personal pizza! 

Bread and Breadsticks

Just like with pizza, you’ll brush the two ingredient pizza dough with olive oil — use high quality if possible since the flavor will come through stronger without the marinara.

You can bake these with or without the cornmeal on the bottom.

  • Garlic Breadsticks – Sprinkle dough with garlic powder. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and slice into bread sticks. 

    Bake, then slice along the same lines to separate.
  • Cheesy Garlic Bread – Sprinkle with garlic powder and shredded Italian cheese blend. Slice before and after baking.

Dessert Pizzas

Instead of olive oil, brush your 2 ingredient pizza dough with butter when making dessert bread. 

And apply a thin layer of cooking spray to your baking sheet to prevent sticking!

  • Cinna-Sticks – Mix together 3 parts sugar to 1 part cinnamon, then sprinkle the mixture over the buttered dough. Slice before and after baking.
  • Cherry Pie Pizza – Before brushing with butter, pinch the edges of the dough together to form a border. Then, spread cherry pie filling evenly in the center.
  • Chocolate Dessert Pizza – Spread chocolate sauce over the prepared dough and top with marshmallows.

    Once baked, sprinkle with crushed cookies (I like Oreos!) or chopped-up candy bars. 

    Other spreads like chocolate hazelnut or chocolate peanut butter would be delicious too!

2 Ingredient Dough FAQ

Can you use plain flour to make pizza dough? 

Technically, yes, but not when making two ingredient pizza dough. Self-rising flour is essential for this recipe to work.

For a more classic version, which allows for all-purpose flour, try my Italian Pizza Dough Recipe!

Why put yogurt in pizza dough? 

The answer is: science! Baking powder is double-acting — it rises when combined with water, then again from the heat in the oven.

Yogurt is the magic ingredient in 2 ingredient dough because it activates the baking powder in self-rising flour. It also helps bind everything together and provides plenty of moisture.

Can you use regular yogurt instead of Greek in pizza dough? 

No. The consistency is too thin and will result in an overly sticky dough.

That said, you can use plain coconut yogurt to make this 2 ingredient pizza dough recipe vegan and dairy-free.

Prep Time 10 minutes

Course Pantry Staple
Cuisine American
Method Oven
Servings 8 makes 2 medium pizza crusts or one extra large pizza crust


  • 1 cup Greek yogurt, I used Fage Non-Fat Plain
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour, 1 – 1 1/2 cups


  • Combine yogurt and 1 cup flour in the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Mix until combined, scraping down the bowl as necessary until combined. Knead on medium high for 5 minutes. *see cook’s note for hand mixing method
  • Slowly add additional flour as necessary to help dough come together. Depending on how thick your yogurt is, you may need up to an extra 1/2 cup of flour. (I used the entire 1 1/2 cups)
  • Dust clean counter top with flour and remove dough from bowl. Knead a few turns until dough is tacky, but not sticky (it should not leave dough on your hand when you pull away).
  • Roll out and top as desired. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 10-12 minutes (adjust as needed).


Donna’s Notes

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.

  1. I make this all the time and have had success but I cook mine at 350 for 30 minutes. Comes out just fine.

  2. I love this recipe. I saw how to make it gluten free but is there any substitute for the yogurt to make it dairy free?

  3. Wow, I’m amazed to find you, such a great collection of recipes. The two ingredients pizza dough works really good. I tried it in my wood fired pizza oven. The pizza came out in an awesome look and taste.

  4. So to figure nutritional values do I go by what the yogurt says plus the flour then divide that by number of servings?/ Trying to get a read on the dough.

  5. Tried this today. Came out great! So easy! I used like a pita for a buffalo shredded chicken salad. It is just my hubby and I now so I hate to buy bread. This is the perfect solution . He loved it!

  6. I loved this pizza dough and I laughed when my teacup chihuahua stole a piece of this pizza from my husband's plate. It looks like he loved it too!! Heidi P.

    1. I would like to know this too, I'm watching my carbs also and keeping my blood sugar numbers way down by doing this.

  7. 5 stars
    I love making my own little personal pizza’s… this dough works great for it because I can make a lot at once and freeze it.

  8. I’ve been making this for years and now I sprinkle some Italian seasoning in the dough to give it more flavor. I also mix two batches at a time and press it out on a large cookie sheet to make square pizza slices. I have passed this recipe on to many folks who just didn’t believe it was possible!

  9. I was unable to find the video in this article.

    What are the proportions of flour & plain Greek yogurt?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Linda,
      You can find the ingredients in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
      TSRI Team Member,

  10. Tried this for the first time tonight. My husband is very picky and he loved it. Is it possible to freeze this and for how long? Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. 5 stars
      Chris, I’ve made this a dozen times with no stand mixer. I always just knead it for 5 minutes by hand!

    1. Hi Herman,
      Self-rising flour is essential for this recipe to work. Hope that helps. Have a great day!
      TSRI Team Member,

  11. I have an eating disorder I can’t eat anything with yeast in it. I don’t digest certain foods and I’m happy to have this recipe for pizza dough. I’m trying this. Yea!

  12. 5 stars
    I can’t count how many times I’ve made this dough! I try to make a healthier version than store bought, so I use whatever sauce is available or pesto/olive oil as my base. I also use no fat mozzarella and sometimes blend it with a low fat shredded cheese. Toppings are whatever I have at the time. Paired up with a tossed salad and I never think twice about ordering a fast food pizza anymore <3.
    Thank you so much for this recipe!!
