2 Ingredient Dough!
As some of you may know (if you listen to NN the Podcast) I started Weight Watchers on January 29th. I usually love surfing through Pinterest anyways, but for some reason when I'm on Weight Watchers, that's literally all I do. Pinterest has soooo many delicious WW recipes, it's insane!
One recipe I saw every single time I opened my Pinterest app was this magical "2 Ingredient Dough". I saw it made into pizza, bagels, pretzels, cinnamon rolls, everything! I decided to try it out first as pizza dough, then as bagels and then as crust for chicken pot pie and okay GUYSSSSS.... this shit is amazing.
I knew I had to share with all of you because even if you're not following WW or not trying to lose weight.. this dough is so good EVERYONE needs to make it. It's also super easy, you need about zero cooking skills. Okay... here we go!
So the two ingredients you will need are self raising flour and Greek yogurt. Weird, random... I know. But, trust meeee!
In a large mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup of self raising flour and 1/2 cup of fat free plain Greek yogurt. (WW peeps, make sure it's fat free so that it's 0 points)
With a fork, mix the two ingredients together. For this particular dough, I added some pepper to the mixture because it was for chicken pot pie crust and I wanted to be fancy.
Once the mixture is in little clumps, toss it onto a floured surface to kneed. The difference between regular dough and this dough is that this dough is very sticky. You'll need a lot more flour sprinkled on your surface and on your hands than you would with regular dough.
Kneed the dough until it's no longer sticking to your hands or your rolling surface (remember: flour is your friend, it will help you so much!)
Grab your rolling pin and go to town. I haven't mastered getting this into a perfect circle or rectangle shape but it's all going to the same place, right?
For pizza, just add whatever toppings you like and bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. The recipe below is good for one perfectly sized personal pizza.
For bagels, after kneeding the dough split it into two, roll it into little snake like pieces and then form a bagel shape. Before putting them in the oven, coat them with a little egg wash (just a beaten egg) and add toppings if you want. I used Trader Joe's Everything But The Bagel seasoning and it was amazing! Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. The recipe below makes 2 bagels.
For chicken pot pie crust (or any other crust), roll it out and plop it on your filling. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
Quick disclaimer: I'm a blogger, and sometimes I do food posts (and really enjoy doing food posts), but I'm 100% not a food blogger. I constantly forget to take finished product pictures of my food. Hence why you're seeing uncooked bagels and half eaten chicken pot pie.... WHOOPS!
If you're like me and can't find self raising flour at your grocery store, your 2 ingredient dough turns into 4 ingredient dough. Butttt, no worries.. you most likely already have what you need to make your own self raising dough. I make a double batch of this so that I have some already made for next time make something.
Self rising flour:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup self rising flour
- 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
- Add both ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix with fork
- Once mixture starts to clump together transfer to a floured surface
- Kneed mixture until it no longer sticks to surface or your hands (you may need a lot of flour for this step)
- The last step depends on what you're doing with the dough. Either roll it out for pizza dough, pot pie crust, or cinnamon rolls, or cut into sections to make pretzels or bagels.

There you have it! That was a lot of talking but trust me, it's so so easy. I'm really excited to try out other recipes with this dough. I think cinnamon rolls are next on my list, so I'll let you guys know how it goes! If you make this, pleaseeee send me pics of your delicious creations! Hope you guys enjoy!
