I chanced upon a photo saying 'The easiest homemade pizza dough: One cup of greek yogurt and one cup of self rising flour....That's it!'
I thought that's really easy and shared this information with my readers and fans on my Facebook page. Then someone asked me if I can share how to do it. I did a search and found the directions at 101buget.com which says combine the 2 ingredients, mix well, knead 5 to 8 minutes, roll and prepare as you would any pizza crust.
This afternoon, to convince myself that this recipe works, I decided to experiment it. After measuring a cup of each ingredient, I used the KitchenAid stand mixer, fixed with the dough hook to do the kneading. After a few minutes, the dough looked very wet and sticky. My instinct told me that there is no way that the ingredients can come together to form a dough. Even if I continue kneading, I'll end up with some gluey mix instead!
I am determined to get a nice and smooth dough and started adding flour little by little, (noting down the amount added each time) checking the texture after each kneading. Finally, I got the texture right, yay!!! The dough is smooth and easy to handle. With this simple 2 ingredients pizza dough recipe, 30 minutes is all you need to knead the dough and bake a pizza, how fast and convenient, don't you agree?
我偶然在网上看到一张图片说明： "最简单的自制比萨面团：一杯希腊酸奶和一杯自发面粉" 看起来好容易，并在我的Facebook烘焙页与我的读者和粉丝分享。过后，有人问我制做的方法，我就上网在101buget.com找到。做法是结合两种配料，拌匀，揉5〜8分钟，面团就可做比萨了。
我决定要调整面粉的分量来揉出一个很好操作和光滑的面团，并开始一点一点的加入面粉， 并记下每次的添加量。最后，终于让我调出了满意的质感，好高兴！ 有了这个简单的两种材料比萨面团配方，过程只需30分钟， 比萨就可以出炉了!
Two Ingredients Pizza Dough Recipe
Ingredients 材料: (Makes four 8 inch pizza base 可做四个8寸的比萨饼)
400g Self Raising Flour 自发粉
350g Greek Style Yogurt 希腊式酸奶
** Many have asked if plain yogurt can be used, I wouldn't advise to use as plain yogurt is more watery and not as thick and creamy as Greek yogurt. If you use plain yogurt, you may end up with a sticky and wet dough which is difficult to handle.
1. Put both ingredients in a mixer bowl. Use a stand mixer with dough hook and knead till the dough is pliable and soft. (I use KitchenAid speed 1 to knead, you can also use the breadmaker pasta function to knead or hand knead for about 10 minutes to get a smooth dough.)
2. Put the dough onto a lightly floured work surface, divide the dough into 4 equal portions. (each portion about 178 grams) Shape into 4 balls, roll or press out each portion to a round 8 inch size.
3. Spread some pizza sauce over the dough, arrange a layer of grated cheddar/mozzarella cheese, followed by preferred toppings. Sprinkle the top all over with more grated cheddar/mozzarella cheese.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees celcius for 10 to 15 minutes. (For my Brandt oven FP1067XS, I used the Auto Program function and select 'Pizza'.)
