2 Ingredient Pizza Dough

Yes, you read that correctly. 2 ingredients can give you fantastic pizza dough, with no proving, or even that much waiting around. It's quick, it's easy, it's (relatively) un-messy and cheap to make!

This is all you need Self Raising Flour, and Greek Yoghurt. We went for the 0% fat variety. Think it's because it came in smaller tubs.

Measure out a cup of flour, and stick that in a big bowl.

For once it doesn't matter if you get flour everywhere on the worktop as you measure it, as you'll be kneading on there later.

Stick the entire pot of yoghurt in there. Use your fingers to scrape it out, because you're about to get messy anyway.

Give it a good mix together until it forms a big sticky ball. If it isn't quite binding together, add a bit more yoghurt. If you're like us and didn't buy extra Greek yoghurt, we just stuck in a spoonful of natural yoghurt. Don't worry too much if it's pretty sticky, as you'll be adding extra flour when you knead it. 

Sprinkle your work surface liberally with more self raising flour and dollop your dough on there.

Give it a good knead, and when it gets to the right consistency (you'll just know when it's at that point) stretch it into a rough pizza shape. I'm sure most people would be able to get it into a perfect round, but, to be frank, I couldn't be bothered. Try to make it pretty thin, as it puffs up as it cooks.

Plonk it straight onto a good non-stick baking tray. No need to oil it or pre-heat it or anything first.

Add tomato puree and mixed herbs.

Top with whatever you want. I went for mushrooms, ham, pepperoni, salami, a bit of red onion and a couple of tiny bits of jalapeno. I put some cheese on underneath my toppings first, to give it a good base. Cheese-wise I used Sainsburys basics grated mozzarella, as it's much more easy to sprinkle and melt. And it's cheap.

Rich went for salami, pepperoni, red onion and jalapeno. He likes the spice.

Top liberally with more grated mozzarella. Or cheddar or whatever other cheese you fancy. We also cracked some black pepper on there, and added chilli flakes, for an extra kick.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it looks and smells gorgeous.

They were stunning. Next time we may bake the raw bases in the oven for 5 minutes before we top them, just to see if we can make it any crispier, but the texture is just like a regular pizza, but much better as you know you've made it, and it's topped with whatever you love.

Let me know if you try this recipe, and if you have any other variations on it. It's a bit scary to know I'm only some Greek yoghurt away from pizza now...
