Two Ingredient Pizza Dough

When in doubt, this mommy makes pizza. And, this pizza dough is not only easy to make, but super delicious!

All you need is TWO THINGS to make this dough, and I bet a lot of you already have these things on hand!

That's right! All you need is two things and those two things are greek yogurt and self rising flour! And, if you have all purpose flour on hand, simply follow these instructions here to make it self rising. I've even made it with Whole Wheat flour that I doctored up to make self rising. Still DELICIOUS!

To make a small pizza, simply mix 1 cup of yogurt with a heaping cup of flour. Knead in the bowl, adding flour when it becomes too sticky. It will stick to your hands, but if it is clinging to your hands, add more flour. Knead for about 5-7 minutes, or 3 if you have a toddler pulling on your pants.

I press into shape on a pizza stone and top with sauce and cheese. If you are baking on a cookie sheet, I'd probably spray some oil oil (Um, Mistos are awesome by the way) to make sure it doesn't stick. The best part about making your own pizza is you can covertly add kid yuckies like carrots, spinach and zucchini.

Tip...I normally make a batch of spiked pizza sauce by combining tomato sauce, italian seasoning, garlic powder, carrots, spinach and zucchini. I blend in my blender and freeze in ice cube trays. When I make a small pizza, I defrost three cubes and that's the perfect amount for my boys. They like their pizza on the drier side (not oozing with sauce). If you like saucier pizza, I'd add more than 3 cubes!

Now, my kids like their pizza with brown cheese. I don't know if that's a testament to my inability to remember I have something in the oven or if they are weird like me and like crunchy, burnt cheese. Either way, bake at 425 until the crust is slightly brown and your cheese is how you like it!

The dough bakes nice and fluffy! The crust doesn't get hard and crunchy, but it's like really soft bread. You can use this dough recipe to make awesome garlic bread for dipping as well! I've been meaning to use it for some delish cinnamon-sugar bread sticks with some drizzled powder sugar frosting! YUM!

So, there's my secret. We eat this when I'm lazy or when I make something that I know neither boy would like. Just call me Patricia the Pizzarita.
