Containing just two ingredients—self-rising flour and Greek yogurt—this healthy dough is a snap to make! It is exceptionally versatile; you can use it to make pizza and even bagels (see associated recipes). To make this dough whole-wheat or gluten-free, make your own self-rising flour by adding baking powder and salt to your favorite whole-wheat or gluten-free flour (see Tip).

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. To make dough by hand: Place self-rising flour in a large bowl. Add yogurt and stir with a fork until a shaggy dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 8 minutes. Add a few tablespoons water if the dough seems dry or a few tablespoons flour if it is sticky.
  2. Alternatively, to make dough in a stand mixer: Place self-rising flour in a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Ad yogurt and mix at low speed until a smooth dough forms, 3 to 4 minutes. Add a few tablespoons water if the dough seems dry or a few tablespoons flour if it is sticky.
  3. Alternatively, to make dough in a food processor: Place self-rising flour in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add yogurt and pulse about 15 times until a smooth dough forms. Add a few tablespoons water if the dough seems dry or a few tablespoons flour if it is sticky.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate dough for up to 2 days.
  • Tip: To make whole-wheat self-rising flour, whisk ¾ cup white whole-wheat flour, ½ cup all-purpose flour, 1½ teaspoons baking powder and ¼ teaspoon salt in a large bowl.

Love this easy cooking hack! I use it all the time now. I just make my own gluten free self rising flour using the tip provided and it works just as well as it does with wheat flour. My new go-to dough for making pizza.
