These Two Ingredients Are All We Need for a Dough

If you struggle with baking the 2-ingredient bread dough by Michele Leigh, Pinette Pierce’s version can save you. If you want to try your hand at some tasty treats, this dough is perfect. Without the complications of gathering wet and dry ingredients and proofing the bread, this bread dough recipe will always make your baking easy and quick.

The 2-Ingredient Dough

Flour and greek yogurt are the dry and wet ingredients you need for making the effective 2-ingredient dough. The greek yogurt ensures moisture and tenderness as the flour is used for the bounciness and elasticity of the dough. To make the dough, use a ratio of 3:2 of flour and yogurt. The flour used should be self-rising flour. Mix the two ingredients until they make shaggy strands and knead until smooth. You can also work the dough by putting them on the stand mixer. The dough will be stickier than the usual pizza dough.

The Alternative

If you don’t have self-rising flour, don’t just opt for normal flour as it might make the dough non-bouncy and hard. Alternatively, you can use a simple alternative by combining all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt with the yogurt. Mix 1 ¼ cup of gluten-free all-purpose flour, 1 ½ tbsp baking powder, and ½ tbsp salt to have the homemade alternative of self-rising flour. Handle the gluten-free dough with care as it won’t have much elasticity.

Recipes to Try With the Dough

With this simple and bouncy dough, you can make pizza crusts, soft pretzels, and garlic knots. For pizza, the mild dough should be rolled out, topped with sauce, toppings, and cheese and you are ready to go. Top this dough with different toppings like garlic butter or get creative with lemon zest and blueberry. Add a few more ingredients to make breakfast treats like cinnamon rolls and bagels. If you like baking, this dough recipe can be your perfect go-to.
