Are you “eating clean” in 2017? I found this clean pizza dough recipe that only needs flour and Greek yogurt.
I had to play around with the cooking time and temperature since I was using a countertop convection oven. It gets hot but I’m not convinced it is as high as the dial suggests. One of these days I’ll hunt down a thermometer to measure it or just keep increasing cooking times.
I included red pepper flakes into the crust to keep them from falling off. Next attempt may be parmesan cheese. Or garlic powder.
If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make your own by adding 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking power to all-purpose flour.
- 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
- ½ cup Greek Yogurt
- Pinch of salt
- Mix flour, salt and yogurt together to form a smooth dough.
- Roll out on a floured surface. This amount will make 1 medium sized pizza.
- Add your favourite toppings and bake for 10 min at 180 degree Celsius or 350 degree Fahrenheit.
I am using a countertop convection oven and, liking a crisper crust, I upped the temperature to 400F and baked for 25 minutes.
Sure beats messing with yeast when you want a quick snack.
Now I’m wondering if the yogurt needs to be Greek which is creamier than regular. I buy the crazy huge bucket at Costco. I’ll try straining with cheesecloth and test that next. It would be a cost saver for sure.
What do you think? Have you tried it? Success or failure?
