I was completely fascinated (and a little skeptical ) when this 2 ingredient dough started making the rounds on blogs and social media a few years ago. Could flour and yogurt really combine to make a bread dough I would want to eat? Well, the answer is absolutely YES! This 2 ingredient dough is so easy and so versatile. While I make it often for bagels, it’s also great in a pinch when you need a pizza crust or breadsticks. So in this time when we’re looking for easy recipes using pantry staples, give this 2 ingredient dough a try!
2 Ingredient Dough
1 c. self rising flour
1 c. non fat plain greek yogurt (I highly recommend FAGE, I think it makes a difference) make sure you’ve stirred the yogurt so any water is mixed through.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the flour and yogurt together until dough ball forms. Put a little bit of flour on your work surface and lightly knead the dough. It shouldn’t be overly sticky, but is definitely a slightly wetter than a traditional bread dough. Divide into 4 equal portions. Roll into a ball, poke a hole in the center and form the bagel. For bagels, brush the dough with a beaten egg that has been mixed with a tsp of water. Sprinkle tops with salt, everything seasoning, sesame seeds or just leave plain.
OR, roll the 4 portions into breadsticks. Brush with egg wash, then sprinkle with garlic powder and parmesan cheese.
OR, divide into 2 portions and flatten into pizza crusts. Have fun with your toppings!
For pizza, top with sauce, cheese and whatever toppings you like. For all, bake in oven for about 20-25 minutes or until a nice golden brown. Don’t underbake. Let cool slightly and enjoy!
The bagels are yummy right out of the oven. Or, slice in half and gently toast…then add a schmear of cream cheese….ENJOYABLE! You’ll love having this 2 ingredient dough as part of your recipe arsenal. Just think! You’re always just 2 ingredients away from homemade bagels and bread!
