Easy Peasey Pizza Dough
My new addiction...Pinterest...sigh. Yesterday I went to someone's board and re-pinned over 100 of his food pins. Pathetic I know...but they looked oh so yummy! Since I did that I had to make something new and I am so glad that I did, so is my family! This pizza crust is sooooo easy to make and it tastes wonderful. I did not have self rising flour so I made my own. It ended up being for of a thin crusted pizza but it was so good that my "thick crust only" husband had a bunch of pieces and said we definitely have to keep using this recipe ;) I love it when I get comments like that! For my husband and the girls I made a pepperoni pizza with Old School Pizza Sauce which is the best pizza sauce I have ever had in my life...
I have made it multiple times and will keep making it. For myself I made a Garlicky Cheese and Tomato pizza which was divine and I will be making this again on Friday for a game night with friends and everyone is bringing a homemade pizza...I wonder where that idea came from....la la la...anyways, on to the simplest pizza dough recipe ever!
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup of Greek or natural yoghurt
Extra flour for dusting the board
In a bowl, combine the flour and yoghurt and bring together to form a ball. Turn out onto a floured board to knead and roll. Knead for 5-8 minutes. Roll into a pizza shape and add toppings.
This quantity is suitable for one pizza. If the dough seems a little wet when you mix it, just add a sprinkling more flour. The more you knead it the better it comes together. I thought in the beginning that there was no way this will work but as I kneaded it, the dough became pliable and stretchy.
Pizza dough recipe found on Kidspot.
