We done be lazy around here, and since I’m a failure at being domestic, Christian sent me a recipe for a pizza crust that only uses 2 ingredients. To be fair, Christian has never come right out and confirmed that I am a homemaking failure, but I’m sure he would agree if asked point-blank.
We were a little excited to see if 2 ingredient pizza dough would be up to our demanding pizza standards, so I raced with all my might to the store and bought:
1. Self-rising flour
2. 2% Fage plain Greek yogurt
I galloped home and threw the ingredients into a bowl and mixed them up with my unwashed hands. It was so sticky. I had to keep whining to Christian to gimme some more flour, and he complied. He was nearly faint from hunger and it was fun to watch him get crabby.
After I found the dough to be un-sticky enough, I pressed some out with my hands into a round, and slapped it into a cast iron skillet. This felt VERY wild west.
Topped it with pizza sauce and mozzarella, and threw it into an oven preheated to 435 degrees. I cooked it at 435 degrees, because virtually no recipe out there calls for that temperature, and I wanted to give it its time in the sun.
Here are the amounts of ingredients to use, and my tips for making it work:
Initially I used 1 cup each of the yogurt and flour, but I ended up mixing in probably another whole cup of flour.
Knead the mixture together for about 7-8 minutes, adding in the extra flour as you go.
Totally ignore the 2-ingredient rule, and shake in some Italian seasoning.
BONUS: Pressing this dough out is easier than regular pizza dough, because this isn’t as springy.
Make sure you cook this in a cast iron skillet or on a pizza stone, or your dough won’t cook through all the way, and how nasty is doughy raw pizza? Way nasty. Here’s a link for how to season and care for your cast iron skillet. If you don’t use one now, buy one and you will develop sort of an obsession with it. Here. Buy one from my affiliate link and I will make you a dutch baby. I even linked to one that was pre-seasoned, so you don’t have to go through the initial prepping. I love you.
