Last month I read several pizza-related posts, which really made me crave pizza.
Over the weekend, I decided to make some homemade pizza, turning to my favorite easy pizza crust, which I first posted about here.
Thin, bubbly and crispy. This crust tastes amazing and it’s so easy to make, with just two ingredients.
The original recipe is from Kid Spot Kitchen. I’ve since fiddled with the ingredient ratio and the dough-making process. How the dough comes together makes a really big difference, so please pay attention to the instructions.
I tried making it a few different ways and I was surprised to find that each method produced varied results. One method made the dough soft, another made it pale and doughy, etc.
You can top the pizzas with whatever you want. Trader Joe’s was having a big pizza month so I bought fresh mozzarella balls and made a simple margarita pizza that tasted divine. I also made another one topped with lots of prosciutto and fresh basil (I know it’s usually topped with arugula, but I don’t really care for arugula).
I love how pretty these pizzas turned out and they were so quick and easy.
2 Ingredient Pizza Dough
- 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (see note)
- 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- cornmeal for dusting
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Add 1 1/4 cups of flour (reserve 1/4 cup) and yogurt together in a bowl of a stand mixer. Mix together with a large wooden spoon or spatula until all the flour is moistened. Use knead attachment on mixer and knead on high speed for 5 minutes. Dough will initially come together into a ball and pull away from the sides, but as it continues to knead, it will become very sticky. Add in remaining 1/4 cup of flour. Knead dough again. Dough will once again break apart and then come together into one ball and pull away from the sides. Stop kneading as soon as the dough just comes together again, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Make sure you watch the dough and stop it once it becomes a ball, otherwise if you continue to knead it, it will become super sticky again and unworkable.
- Sprinkle some flour onto a pastry board or other large surface to roll out your dough. Split dough into two. Roll one out into a round pizza shape about 1/4 inch thick. If needed, sprinkle a little flour on both sides to make it easier to work with. Repeat with other dough.
- Put whatever toppings and sauces you wish on pizza. Generously sprinkle cornmeal onto pizza stone. Place one of the pizzas onto the pizza stone and bake about 10 minutes until dough rises, bubbles up and turns a golden brown. Remove finished pizza from stone and then bake the second pie. Eat immediately.
- If you don't have self-rising flour, you can make it by mixing 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 1/4 tsp baking powder, 3/8 tsp salt.
