It’s late at night, (or be it early in the morning, who’s judging?) and you’re craving homemade pizza. You’re out of eggs, and besides, you really don’t feel like going through the hassle of making a yeast dough and waiting for it to prove before you can even think about what toppings you want on it. Well, good news, this simple recipe for pizza dough consists of just two humble ingredients, and with no messing around with rising times, you can impress your friends in no time.
To get started, preheat your oven as high as it will go. You’ll turn the temperature down a bit when you’re ready to cook, but this high temperature will ensure a nice crispy crust in the end. For a 12-inch pizza, grab yourself 1 ¾ cups of self-raising flour and 1 cup of greek yoghurt. Using a larger bowl than you think you’ll need (this will help keep flour dust from flying everywhere), combine your two trusty ingredients and mix very well. The dough might be a bit shaggy at first, but with a bit of kneading it’ll quickly come together as a nice, soft, pliable dough.
Thanks to the raising agent in the self-raising flour, the dough is ready for assembling. Roll your dough out into a circular, pizza shape (or even a square if you’re feeling quirky). Tip: if the dough is a bit sticky, lightly flour the surface and your rolling pin. Once the dough is rolled out, transfer it to a lined pizza pan, or any other baking tray you have to hand. Top with your favorite pizza sauce, a combination of cheeses, and your very own toppings. What will it be? Classic flavours like olives or pepperoni? Or something more controversial like pineapple? Whatever you pick, stick it in the oven, turn the temperature down to 180C/350F and bake for 20-22 minutes until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden brown. Mmm, delicious!
