2-Ingredient Pizza Dough Recipe

This is going to be your new favorite pizza dough recipe because it’s so easy! If you’ve ever wanted to make homemade pizza but are short on time, or on ingredients, or on patience which is usually the case with me, two-ingredient pizza dough is going to be your new best friend.

As stated, there’s no yeast, no kneading, and you don’t need to wait for this dough to rise!

Literally just mix it up and within 20 minutes you can be enjoying fresh, hot, homemade pizza. 

It produces an averagely thick pizza crust. Not super thin and crispy nor thick and doughy like you’d find in a deep dish. It’s in that middle ground.

Ingredients in Two Ingredient Pizza Dough

For this two ingredient dough you will need:

  • Self-rising flour
  • Greek yogurt

If this sounds intriguing to you and you’d like to make Homemade Sourdough Bread using this same concept, check out my recipe from 2014 which because a major hit last spring when it seemed the entire world wanted to make sourdough.

How To Make No-Knead Pizza Dough

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F and grease a round pizza pan with olive oil.

Combine the flour and yogurt in a large mixing bowl and combine using a rubber spatula until a ball forms (use your hands, if need be to shape the dough).

If the dough is too sticky, you can add an additional ¼ cup of flour.

Transfer the dough to the pizza pan and use your hands to spread it out to the end of the pan, bake for 12 minutes, remove the crust from the oven and reduce the oven temperature a bit.

Top the crust with pizza sauce and cheese as well as desired toppings such as pepperoni, bacon, basil, mushrooms, pineapple, olives, or whatever you love on your pizza.

Bake for an additional 6 to 8 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and is as golden as desired and dig in!

What Kind Of Flour To Use for 2-Ingredient Pizza Dough

You need to use self-rising flour, and only that, for this dough. 

If you do not have self rising flour, you can make a substitute using all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

Add 1½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt to each one cup of all-purpose flour and whisk together.

I have not tested this with a gluten-free flour that is intended to be used in baking where it’s a cup-for-cup equivalent to traditional all-purpose flour.

What Kind Of Yogurt Is Best For Making Pizza Dough

You want to use Greek yogurt, which is thicker than average yogurt. Save those for another use but they won’t work here.

It’s very important not to use super watery yogurt.  If there is water sitting on the top of the yogurt, discard it.

I have not tried this with dairy-free Greek yogurt alternatives, such as those made with almond or cashew milk. My instinct is that they likely won’t give the best results but I haven’t tried so can’t say for sure.

Tips For Making The Best Homemade Pizza Dough 

DO NOT use a stand mixer or hand mixer for this recipe. You want a gentle hand mixing or hand stirring for the dough using a rubber spatula and if needed, use your hands to help the dough to come together.

It is VERY important to brush the pizza pan with olive oil (or really any oil) before adding the dough because this helps the crust crisp up. Nonstick spray will not cut it.

The crust initially bakes in a an inferno of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, this IS accurate.

You need the high heat to make the bottom of the crust crispy while the rest stays soft.

Make sure to reduce the heat before adding the toppings so they don’t burn. Alternately, you can broil the toppings on low, but keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1¾ cups self-rising flour, up to ¼ cup additional may be needed* (See Notes for how to make DIY self-rising flour)
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, with any liquid or water drained from the top
  • Olive oil, for greasing the pan

Toppings

  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 1½ cups pizza cheese blend
  • Pepperoni, optional
  • Garlic butter, optional
  • Parmesan cheese, optional

Instructions

    1. Crust - Preheat the oven to 500F and liberally grease a 12-inch round pizza pan with olive oil.
    2. Add the flour and yogurt in a large mixing bowl and combine using a rubber spatula until a ball forms (use your hands, if need be to shape the dough). If the dough is too sticky, you can add an additional ¼ cup of flour.
    3. Transfer the dough to the pizza pan and use your hands to spread it out uniformly over the pan, creating a ridge around the edges of the dough.
    4. Bake for 12 minutes then remove the crust from the oven and reduce the heat to 450F.
    5. Toppings - Top the crust uniformly with pizza sauce, evenly sprinkle the cheese as well as desired toppings such as pepperoni or your favorites.
    6. Optionally, brush the exposed perimeter of crust with garlic butter.
    7. Bake for an additional 6 to 8 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and is as golden as desired.
    8. Optionally sprinkle with Parmesan cheese after pulling pizza from the oven. Slice and serve. Pizza is best warm and fresh but extra will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Notes

*If you do not have self rising flour, you can make a substitute using all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

Add 1½ teaspoons of baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of salt to each one cup of all-purpose flour and whisk together.
