Every Friday night is movie night at our place and usually pizza night as well.  This pizza dough is brilliant as it is literally made with two ingredients and so easy to throw together.  It’s all over the internet so I’m not sure who to credit for it.  You can use it for pizza dough bases but it can also be used as the base for vegemite/cheese and bacon scrolls, and the like.

It’s so quick to make it would definitely rival getting takeaway pizza, and you can relax in knowing exactly what is in and on your own pizzas.  You could do a few large pizzas with this much dough, or many smaller ones.  Sometimes the kids love to help and enjoy decorating their own pizzas.  Occasionally I have to do two lots of dough if everyone is very hungry.

 Ingredients

One cup Greek or natural yoghurt

One to two cups self raising flour

Method

Preheat your oven to it’s highest setting or around 250 degrees.

If you have a Thermomix or similar:  put the ingredients in, slowly mix for ten seconds from speed 1 to 6 and then knead for one minute.  I usually use two cups of flour in the Thermomix as it mixes so well.

If you are making the dough by hand: put the ingredients in a bowl (start with one cup of flour and add more if required when kneading).

Mix the flour and yoghurt together until combined.

Knead on a breadboard for a few minutes until at a dough like consistency.

Add flour as needed.

While you can use a rolling pin, I find that the pizza dough rises better if I use my hands to flatten it out make it into a circle.

Add a spoonful of passata/tomato paste or garlic butter to spread out on the pizza dough base  first and then add desired toppings.  It can be a great way to get rid of the last few bits of veggies from the fridge.

Our favourites include:

Mushroom, onion, capsicum, zucchini and olive

Potato, cheese and rosemary

Tomato and cheese
