2 Ingredient Yoghurt Pizza Base
You wont find many recipe posts on this blog as I’m truly hopeless at cooking. Most of the time cooking to me involves reheating something in the microwave. Many many recipe attempts end up with me having to chuck my creation in the bin, however even I didn’t fail at this one. I thought I would share this 2 ingredient pizza base recipe as it is so easy to do and costs little to make and we do like eating frugally here! As the post title suggests, to make this pizza base you need just two ingredients; Flour and the magic ingredient….Greek yoghurt! Yes yoghurt can apparently be used to make a pizza base. After coming across this recipe I had to try it, and the best thing about it is that all I needed to buy was the yoghurt (90p at Asda). I already had flour and tomato puree in the cupboard and cheese in the fridge. For the topping I used whatever I could find in the cupboards/fridge which happened to be a tin of sweetcorn, a tin of tuna and an almost out of date onion. The beauty of pizza is that there is no need to buy any extra ingredients; just use what you already have.
A tub of Greek Yoghurt (500g)
Plain Flour (400g)
Whatever you fancy (optional)
Note: With one 500g tub of yoghurt I made 3 pizzas so just amend the quantities if you only want to make one.
To make the base you simply mix together the yoghurt and flour in a bowl and then transfer to a flour covered surface and knead. Add a little more flour if the mixture is too sticky.
Spray a small amount of oil on a round tin and then spread the dough on to it to the edges. Try and not make the base too thick as it may not cook as well.
I find it best to then cook the base on its own for about 5-10 minutes in a preheated oven, before adding the topping. Take the pizza base out the oven and them spread the tomato puree on top, followed by the grated cheese and then whatever additional topping you are using.
Place the pizza back in the oven for approximately 10 minutes until cooked.
It really is that easy to make this 2 ingredient yoghurt pizza. I couldn’t actually taste the yoghurt, the base just tastes like a regular nicely made pizza to me. You could also use the dough as a base for other things such as garlic bread or scones.
