This Two-Ingredient Pizza Dough Really Works

There are some conversations that make you stop a person mid-sentence, Kanye-style, so they can back up and explain themselves. “Whoa, whoa, whoa—did you just say ‘taco cleanse?'”

“Keurig might start making cocktail pods?!”

“Justin Bieber got Kate Gosselin’s circa-2008 haircut?!”

All too good to be true, but miraculously, they’re real. Just like this two-ingredient pizza dough. When a friend mentioned that you could make pizza dough using Greek yogurt, we had to investigate—and test it for ourselves.

The trick is that it also calls for self-rising flour, which many people don’t have easily on hand, but if you pick up a sack, this could become your new go-to weeknight dinner. If you don’t have self-rising flour but really, really want to try this out, you could always sift two teaspoons of baking powder and one cup of all-purpose flour together, like Nigella Lawson does. Of course, that would make it technically three ingredients, and if you find that too horrifying to tolerate, pretend we never typed such a suggestion.

Surprisingly, the dough doesn’t taste tangy or yogurt-y, but it does puff up a bit while cooking, so the overall flavor will remind you of a Pizza Hut personal pan pizza, or any other chewy crust (crisp, super-flat pizza dough this isn’t).

As far as making the dough goes, the most challenging part is kneading it out. Start with one cup of Greek yogurt and one and a quarter cups of self-rising flour, stirring to combine. Then dust the table with a little extra flour and start kneading it out, for about 8 to 10 minutes. Maybe watch a show or get in a round of squats, because you’ll be there a little while.

Then, when you serve it, watch as your friends start rapid-fire yelling, “I’mma let you finish but … you need to rewind and explain that” when you announce that the pizza they’re devouring was made using just two (or, okay, maybe three) ingredients.
