FAST HOMEMADE PIZZA
OK, so you have a bunch of hungry kids. It’s 5pm and the ‘grumpy’ is setting in.
I’m about to show you how you can get a home made clean eating pizza (a big one) on the table quicker than the time it would take to get takeout.
SET THE TIMER, BABY LET’S GO.
The Two Magic Ingredients you will need:
- 2 cups Wholemeal Self Raising Flour (This is the type of flour I use here)
- 200ml Greek Yogurt (go for full fat)
Knead flour and Greek yogurt together until you have a well mixed dough. The general rule is the same weight of flour to yogurt (weight not volume).
I normally just guess this part. I add two cups of flour to a bowl, then add yogurt until I get a nice, play dough kind of dough.
Divide into 2 or 8 or 10 even balls (depends on the size pizza you want). Roll out with a rolling pin and ….. STOP TIMER PLEASE …. your pizza bases are ready to go!!
FAQ’s ABOUT TWO INGREDIENT PIZZA DOUGH
I get a ton of questions about this recipe, so I have updated it by showing you what would happen if you used different kinds of flour to make up your two ingredient pizza dough.
1. CAN YOU FREEZE THE PIZZA DOUGH?
Yes you Can!! I normally just make up a new batch of dough each time (because it’s quicker than waiting for dough to thaw). But you can most definitely freeze the dough.
To FREEZE: Don’t freeze it as a big ball. You will have to wait for the whole thing to thaw, and that’s not convenient. Rather stack rolled out bases on top of each other with baking paper between. Then wrap then pop the ready to go bases in a freezer bag (I like the big zip lock ones or these reusable ones for smaller pizzas) or a freezer proof Tupperware. These ready to go bases will happily sit in the freezer for 3 – 4 months. To thaw, simply remove and leave on bench top for around 5 min.
2.WHAT KIND OF FLOUR SHOULD YOU USE?
So far, I have not found a flour that doesn’t work with this recipe. It’s just a case of playing with the quantities as some flour is (like coconut flour) is a bit more absorbent.
For the tasty little experiment, I whipped up three standard Margarita Pizzas using one of these 3 Flour types:
- Self Rising Flour (I LOVE Bob Red Mill Flour but they don’t have a Self Rising Version yet. I make my own using this flour and some baking powder.)
- Plain Flour
- Self Raising Wholemeal Flour
Each of the pizza dough recipes contain only two ingredients: 1 cup of flour and 1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt.
1. TWO INGREDIENTS: Self Raising Flour + Greek Yogurt
Using Self Raising flour results in a tasty and fluffy pizza base that everyone will love. It’s got a softer texture like a deep pan pizza.
2. TWO INGREDIENTS: Plain Flour + Greek Yogurt
If you want a crisper, flatter, more rustic kind of pizza then this is the recipe for you. Plain flour doesn’t have a rising agent inside so the dough cooks flatter and crisper. Like a ‘thin crust’ pizza you get at the takeout. It’s the same amount of flour, just without the baking powder.
Now to make up our pizza using Plain Flour in our dough.
3. TWO INGREDIENTS: Self Raising Wholewheat Flour + Greek Yogurt
Finally I used Self Raising Wholemeal flour in the dough. This results in a ridiculously rustic and beautiful pizza. The crust is a bit chewier than the first two, but tastes delicious and is by far the favourite.
A Note on this one. Sometimes Self Raising Wholewheat Flour is really hard to find. To make your own self raising Wholemeal flour, add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder per cup of plain wholemeal flour to get a slightly lighter crust).
- 1 cup Self Raising Flour (White or Wholemeal)
- 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
- Mix flour and yogurt together until a smooth dough.
- Roll out on a floured surface. This amount will make 1 large or 2 medium sized pizzas.
- Add your favourite toppings and bake for 10 min at 180 degree Celsius or 350 degree Fahrenheit. I have a fan forced oven, so you may need to increase cooking time slightly (1-2 min) with a standard oven.
