I discovered this recipe via my soon-to-be cousin-in-law on Pinterest. It seemed too good to be true. Pizza dough in 5 minutes? I had to try it.
It’s two ingredients: self-rising flour and Greek yogurt. I don’t keep self-rising flour on hand so I turned it into a 6-ingredient recipe. Of course. I always make things more difficult.
But really, it’s still very simple.
Don’t expect a traditional flavor and texture from this dough. It’s more like a biscuit dough. But I’m okay with that, especially if I want pizza in half an hour rather than 3 hours. And actually, we enjoyed it so I might just use this recipe even at times when I DO have 3 hours to prepare dough!
Quick Pizza Dough
Adapted from here
1/2 cup sprouted whole wheat pastry flour*
1/2 cup sprouted whole wheat bread flour
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 – 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
Combine the dry ingredients. Stir in enough yogurt to make a nice dough. It might be a little sticky but that’s okay. Knead dough for a few minutes on a floured surface. It should be a smooth dough.
Divide ball into two. Roll out into 12 inch circles on a floured surface, top with sauce, cheese, and toppings. Slide onto a preheated pizza stone in a preheated 475 degree oven. Bake until cheese is just starting to brown and crust is browned a bit on the bottom, about 7 minutes. Remove from oven and slice and serve.
Yield: 2 12-inch pizzas
