Pizza at home doesn't need to be an intimidating chore. With a little help from the magic of self-rising flour this dough comes together quickly, with just one additional ingredient.
Whip up the dough in minutes, and then embrace your creativity with toppings. A Mediterranean pie, a meat lover's delight, or even a taco pizza to satisfy two cravings at once, are just a few ideas to start. The options are endless and armed with this dough, you can get creative (and dinner on the table) in no time.
This recipe yields enough dough for two 10-inch round pizzas.
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
Mix together the flour and yogurt, in a large bowl with a fork, until a dough forms. At first, the dough may appear dry, but continue to mix until a shaggy dough comes together.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. (If the dough is still too dry as you kneed, you may add water, a tablespoon at a time.)
Once the dough is soft and pliable, it is ready for use in any pizza recipe, or to top as you wish. Divide the dough and roll into a disk to form two, 10-inch pies or lay into a sheet tray for a Neapolitan style pizza. Top as desired and bake in a very hot oven.
How to make self rising flour
- If you don't have self-rising flour, you can easily make your own with two cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons baking powder.
- Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees F before beginning this dough recipe, so that it is ready when you have assembled your pies. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crust is slightly golden brown.
