Ok you guys, I’m not someone who cares to find healthier alternatives to different foods but if you are that person, this recipe is for you. Heck, even if you aren’t that person, this recipe is for you too. You can use this recipe to make pizza dough, naan and even bagels, and I am sure there are more possibilities. But this isn’t a complicated bread dough or anything, this recipe has only two ingredients; self rising flour and plain greek yogurt.
I would like to say I came up with this idea but I didn’t. It is actually a Weight Watchers recipe. If you are familiar with Weight Watchers you know there is a whole point system based on the nutritional value or calories of a dish. Well this recipe has fewer points than a traditional dough especially if you use nonfat Greek yogurt. I don’t really know how the point system works but I know low points is supposed to be a good thing.
So far I have made naan and pizza with this recipe. The dough is chewy with a mild sour taste. I enjoyed the naan most (I had it with my red lentils) but it was pretty good as pizza too. If you don’t have self rising flour, you can add 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a cup of all purpose flour. It won’t be two ingredients anymore but you will get the same results. I will definitely be trying this again and I’ll probably be trying it in different forms too; breadsticks, cheesy bread, bagels and more. If you guys have some ideas, put them in the comments section! As for now, here’s how I made the naan and pizza.
2 Ingredient Dough
- 1 cup self rising flour
- 1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
Mix the flour and Greek yogurt in a bowl until fully combined. If it is too sticky, you can sprinkle some flour on the dough until it’s easier to work with. Knead it for about 2 to 4 minutes.
If making naan, cut the dough into 6 to 8 sections depending on how large you want them. Roll them out flat on a floured surface. You can sprinkle them with flour if they begin to stick.
Heat up a pan on medium heat. You can rub the naan with olive oil but this is optional.
Place naan in heated pan pressing it gently on the top with a spatula so it can puff up. When naan begins to expand or after about 2 minutes, flip it over and do the same on the other side. If naan doesn’t look dark enough, you can let it cook longer in the pan. Serve warm and enjoy.
For pizza, preheat your oven to 350°F. roll the dough out on a floured surface adding more flour if it begins to stick.
Transfer to a pizza pan and top with a sauce, cheese and toppings of your choice. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes. Let it cool for a couple of minutes before serving. Enjoy!
