Two-Ingredient Pizza Dough Ingredients

Here's what you'll need to make this two-ingredient pizza dough: 

· Self-rising flour: You'll need 1 ½ cups of self-rising flour. If you only have all-purpose flour on hand, you can make a DIY version with just a few ingredients. 
· Yogurt: Plain Greek yogurt holds the dough together and ensures a tender texture. Make sure you get authentic Greek yogurt and not Greek-style yogurt.  

You'll also need cooking spray or olive oil to prevent the dough from sticking to the pizza pan.

You'll find the full, step-by-step recipe below — but here's a brief overview of what you can expect:

1. Mix Ingredients: Mix the flour and yogurt until a shaggy dough forms. 
2. Knead: Transfer to a flour dusted work surface, then knead for 8 to 10 minutes. Add more flour as needed if the dough becomes too sticky. 
3. Parbake: Grease the pizza pan with cooking spray. Spread the dough to the edges of a pan. Parbake the crust for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the oven, then add sauce and toppings.  
4. Finish Baking: Return the pizza to the oven and bake until the crust is lightly browned.

Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Easy and yummy," says JLHOSK. "If this is your first time (like it was for me), trust the proportions! The mix looks crumbly at first, but keep mixing and it will turn out."

"This is a great recipe for a quick and easy pizza dough," according to CookieEater. "I almost always have Greek yogurt and flour on hand, so this is great to have in my back pocket in a pinch. It comes out surprisingly chewy (in a good way!) for not having yeast." 

"Absolutely amazing," raves Gareth J Hall. "I admit to being skeptical about the recipe, but it was fantastic. I may actually start making pizza at home more often. I used the do it yourself self-rising recipe and paired it with Chef John's "How to Make Homemade Pizza Sauce" recipe, both from this site, and the result was incredible."

  • Mix flour and Greek yogurt together in a bowl; transfer to a work surface floured with self-rising flour. Knead dough, adding more flour as needed to keep dough from being too sticky, for 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Spray a 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray and spread dough to edges of pan.

  • Parbake the pizza crust for 5 to 7 minutes before adding your favorite toppings.

  • Return to the oven and bake until crust is lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Make sure to cook at 500 degrees F (260 degrees C), otherwise your crust will not brown on the bottom nicely and will be soft.
