Listen, we love homemade pizza night around here! It is something we do often and is one of our go-to Friday Night in meals. My friend told me about how she uses greek yogurt to make pizza dough a while back, and I didn’t believe her until I tried it. You are going to be floored at this 3 ingredient pizza dough recipe!

3 ingriedents. That is it.

  • Flour
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Salt

Nothing more, nothing less. It sounds a little too good to be true but I promise you it is not.

How Do I Make 3 Ingredient Pizza Dough?

  1. In a large bowl add equal parts flour and greek yogurt (EX: 1 cup flour and 1 cup of non-fat plain greek yogurt). Add in 1 teaspoon of salt.
  2. With a wooden spoon or spatula, stir to start combining.
  3. Once the mixture had almost come together, pour out onto a floured countertop.
  4. Using your hands, knead the dough for 1-2 minutes until the dough is fully combined and has formed a ball. Add more flour on the counter if needed. This is a wetter dough and will need lots of flour so as not to stick to the surface.
  5. Form into a round ball and cut into equal halves.
  6. Sprinkle more flour out onto the counter and begin to roll out one of the balls into a rectangle shape (about 6″x12″).
  7. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (you can also spray the sheet with non-stick spray so it won’t stick) and place it in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Once the 10 minutes is up, take out, top as desired, then place back in the oven for another 10-13 minutes until the cheese is melted and the bottom and edges are slightly golden brown.

That is it! 3 ingredients. 1 bowl. 1 amazing homemade pizza dough recipe!

How Long Do I Need to Knead this Pizza Dough?

This recipe doesn’t require the kneading normally required for a traditional pizza dough made with yeast.

Once the dough has been poured out onto a floured countertop, knead for 1-2 minutes until the dough has come all together and formed a ball.

This is a more “wet” dough than a traditional yeast recipe, so lots of flour on the counter will be needed to make sure it doesn’t stick to the surface and the dough itself is no longer sticky.

What Type of Flour Do You Use for This 3 Ingredient Pizza Dough?

I usually just use white flour (because that is what we have on hand).

But I am sure a whole wheat flour would be lovely or subbing in a 1-1 gluten-free flour would work for if you’re wanting it to be gluten-free.

I haven’t tried anything but white all-purpose flour so if you do please let me know how it turns out!

Can I Use Another Type of Yogurt in This Recipe?

No.

Nonfat plain Greek yogurt is the yogurt that is needed for this specific recipe.

How Do You Freeze Pizza Dough?

To freeze the pizza dough, follow the directions all the way up until baking.

You will bake the pizza crust for 20 minutes instead of 10. This will bake the crust almost all the way.

Remove from the oven and let cool.

Once cooled, wrap the baked pizza crust tightly in plastic wrap 3 times, ensuring no air can get to the crust. Place back on a baking tray and place it in the freezer (putting it on a tray will help keep it flat and not bending or breaking while frozen).

Freeze for 3-4 months.

When ready to use, unwrap, top how desired, and place into a 400-degree oven for about 5 minutes – or until the toppings are cooked, cheese is melted and crust is warmed through.

What Toppings Can I Use When I Make This Pizza?

ANYTHING!

That is the beauty of homemade pizza! Make any kind you want. Once you have prepared the dough, top with pizza sauce and top with anything your heart desires!

We are pretty simple and usually just do 1 cheese and one pepperoni and banana peppers.

But you could do:

  • veggie
  • sausage
  • any pineapple on pizza fans out there?!
  • meat-lovers
  • white pizza (no red sauce and all the cheese)
  • literally anything you love on a pizza – the options are limitless!

  1. Love this crust. The texture/simplicity and taste. However we couldn’t get it fully crispy is there a trick? Thank you

     
    • It doesn’t really get “crispy” per se. It has a more chewy texture to it. You can make it as thick as you would like, just cook it 10ish minutes longer if it’s really thick to cook all the way through. hope you enjoy it! I really love the different more chewy texture of it – especially with the ease of this recipe!

       
  2. This crust was so easy to make and delicious! Definitely will be making again!
