Easy 2 ingredients gluten free yoghurt pizza dough recipe

Easy Gluten Free Yoghurt Pizza Dough

This incredibly basic gluten free yoghurt pizza dough idea was suggested on a gluten free Facebook group that I’m on and obviously, being so easy, it immediately caught my eye. If there’s one thing I love, it’s short cuts. You present me with anything that can make life easier and I’m on it like a vampire looking for blood! lol

And so what better than having a delicious, perfect, homemade gluten free pizza that requires very little time and ingredients? Sounds too good to be true?

I thought so too, but this recipe didn’t disappoint! What was meant to be just a quick experiment ended up earning a spot in my top favourite gluten free pizza bases! And it’s not just because of how effortless it is, but everything from the taste to the texture are perfect – good flavour, soft, yet slightly crispy on the outside. It’s just right; a fact also supported by my gluten eating non-coeliac boyfriend (and that’s always the ultimate test isn’t it!? lol).

Cost-wise, it’s so very cheap to make as well. I honestly don’t see myself buying overpriced pre-made pizzas as much as I used to after making this discovery.

It’s also worth mentioning that the dough is very easy to handle. Gluten free dough can sometimes be so sticky due to needing more liquid than ‘normal’ dough and that can make the rolling/spreading process a total pain in the a** at times, but I had no such issue with this recipe.

Tips for an even better pizza base:

1. Let the dough rest. If possible I really recommend letting the dough rest before cooking. About one hour at room temperature or overnight in the fridge. After experimenting some more with this recipe, I find this yields by far the best texture. So airy and fluffy. It may seem like an inconvenience, but the dough itself is incredibly quick to make so you can prepare it in advance the night before and let it rest in the fridge overnight. So when meal time comes the next day, it’s ready to pop in the oven without any hassle. 🙂

2. Add yeast. This one isn’t necessary, especially if you choose to cook it right away without resting the dough first. But if you do rest it and can have yeast, add 1 to 2 teaspoons of dry active yeast for an even fluffier texture.

R E C I P E: 🍕 An upgraded crispy thin crust take on my easy yoghurt pizza 💕{⬆you can find the link to it in my bio⬆}. It’s still super simple ingredients-wise, but with added yeast for that proper classic pizza flavour. 🙋 * I posted a really basic 3 ingredients yoghurt pizza on my blog many years ago and to this day it’s still one of my most popular recipes, BY FAR. I mean, I’m not surprised seeing as it’s so easy, basic and it actually tastes pretty good! 😃 But over the years I’ve played around with the recipe quite a bit and thought I’d share an upgraded perfected version today for all those who love it but are looking for something a bit more authentic. 🙋 The original had more of a deep pan vibe whereas this one is super thin, crispy, restaurant-like. 👌 * For all those who don’t have access to bread flour for the previous pizza recipe I posted the other day, this one is probably the closest thing to that but with just a standard gf blend (I used @freeefoods flour). 👍 * P.S.: Yes that’s potato slices on one of the pizza. 😆 Anyone tried that? Apparently it’s a thing in Italy according to some Italian friends who kept telling us to try it. 🙉 It seemed like a weird topping to me but they were right, it tastes amazing! Just slice them thinly, cover in olive oil, salt and rosemary and add on top of the cheese. 😍 * * * * * #pizza #glutenfreepizza #pizzadough #eeeeeats #food #glutenfreefood #pizzatime #italianfood #recipe #glutenfreerecipes #baking #glutenfreebaking #cheese #glutenfreeuk #comfortfood #forkyeah #sansgluten #singluten #lovefood #senzaglutine #nogluten #wheatfree #yummy #glutenfreecooking #dovesfarm #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreelife #glutenfreelondon #thefeedfeed

Easy Gluten Free Yoghurt Pizza Dough
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
An incredibly easy homemade pizza dough made with only three ingredients: gluten free flour, yoghurt and oil.
Author:
Recipe type: Baking
Serves: 1 large or 2 small pizza
Ingredients
For the dough:
  • 150g (1 cup) gluten free self-raising flour (I used Doves Farm)
  • 145g (a bit less than ⅔ cup) plain Greek style yoghurt
  • 1 Tbsp (15ml) olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
Toppings:
  • Basic no-cook pizza sauce (recipe here)
  • Extra mature cheddar
  • Mozzarella (the semi-hard/low moisture kind that is often sold already grated)
Notes
1. Cooking temperature: 200C (390F)
2. Strained yoghurt (Greek style yoghurt) is a thicker kind of yoghurt and worked perfectly for this recipe. If using a thinner type of yoghurt, you may need to add a bit more flour (about 20g extra) depending on the texture.
3. If using a plain flour blend without xanthan gum and self-raising agents, add 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 to 2 teaspoons xanthan gum (if possible).

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C (392F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Place all dough ingredients in a bowl and mix well with your hands until you form a ball.Easy 2 ingredients gluten free yoghurt pizza dough making process
  3. Flatten the dough on the baking tray (or separate the dough into more portions for smaller pizzas – I chose to make two medium sized ones).Easy 2 ingredients gluten free yoghurt pizza dough making process
  4. Smooth the edges with the back of a spoon or a knife.Easy 2 ingredients gluten free yoghurt pizza dough making process
  5. Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until the surface starts getting slightly crispy.
  6. Meanwhile, make the pizza sauce. My favourite thing to do is a very basic tomato purée based sauce with added olive oil, garlic powder and herbs, that only takes seconds to make. {recipe here}
  7. Take it out of the oven and add the sauce and toppings.Easy 2 ingredients gluten free yoghurt pizza making process
  8. Put it back in the oven for another 10 minutes or until the cheese turns golden brown.
