2 Ingredient Pizza Dough Recipe Vegetarian

2-Ingredient Pizza Dough

Raise your hand if making pizza from from scratch sounds simultaneously elating and soul crushing. For me, a homemade pizza was something that always felt just beyond my reach. The foodie in me wants to do it, but my impatient side rolls it’s eyes, exclaims “yeah right!”, and moves my hand toward the Seamless app on my phone. Any dough recipe I have found just confirmed my suspicion that this would be a major pain in the ass. Kneading, greasing, rising, over an hour of work (and dishes!)… forget it! I’ll just grab some delivery or get a frozen dough from my grocery store! So when I first heard of 2-ingredient pizza dough, I thought to myself, “Oh, yeah right – this will NEVER work.” To test it, I had friends over with the disclaimer that I would take them out for dinner when it inevitably went pear shaped. Surprisingly, when I pulled out the 2-ingredient pizza out of my oven looked awesome and smelled amazing. When my guests and I bit into our first slice, there was a long silence and some furrowed brows. Then we all ate more, which was followed by a lot things like, “Whoa!”; “Whaaaaat?!”; “No way!”; “But how?”; “It’s so good, but I don’t get it!” Don’t ask me why or how 2-ingredient pizza dough works, JUST KNOW THAT IT DOES. In today’s complicated and overwhelming world, some things are meant to go unquestioned –particularly when they are easy, fast, great things, like quick pizza dough.

Since I put up the original post in 2014 I have received so much great feedback on this recipe, which fills my little impatient heart with so much joy! I love that we’re all in our kitchens pumping out homemade pizzas – Look at us, so grown up and not ordering delivery! Seriously, I am very proud and so pleased that you are all equally psyched by this discovery. I know that on the spectrum of healthy recipes, dough plus melted cheese doesn’t rate that high. But you can easily throw on some greens, like sautéed spinach or kale, to make it healthier. You could also turn this into a vegan recipe by substituting in some dairy-free cheese substitute, like Daiya. If you hate that stuff (I get it), using caramelized onion or avocado is great for adding some creaminess. Over the last two years, I’ve posted a few different pizza recipe options. My original post was a recipe for homemade margarita pizza (including an impatient friendly homemade pizza sauce!) and a pizza with thinly sliced brussels sprouts and charred lemon. If you want an option with some winter vegetables, here’s a recipe idea for ya. My pizza ideas are easy vegetarian recipes, but you can put whatever your impatient heart desires on yours. Whatever you end up putting on your pie, please send me pics and let me know how it turns out. I always love getting your feedback and learning from all of you.

2-Ingredient Pizza Dough



NOTE: If you can’t find self-rising flour, you can substitute 1 ½ cups all purpose flour, 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder, and ¾ teaspoon of salt; add in with cup of Greek yogurt.


  1. Preheat your oven to 450F degrees.
  2. Combine 1 cup of self rising flour and 1 cup full fat greek yogurt. Knead the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. If the dough is sticky, gradually add in more self rising flour – up to a 1/2 cup – and knead until it comes together. Allow pizza dough to rest 5-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to a small to medium sized skillet and sautee 2 cloves of garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup Pomi with a pinch of salt to make your own super fast homemade pizza sauce. Allow to cook over medium-high heat for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  4. Press dough into a greased cast iron skillet or oven safe pan. Brush with olive oil and then spoon and spread Pomi on top. Add shredded mozzarella and parmesan.
  5. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until crust is golden brown. Cover with roughly torn basil leaves as a garnish. Dig in.

    Can you send a gift basket of healthy, yummy, already prepared food to a rare, chronic disease young lady in FL, that needs a high caloric, diet upgrade, asap; and she is already life experienced to these bioavailability diets. She is very underweight, with no grocery access, except to walk to a very, overpriced bodega in a dangerous hood; until the state will finally fix her meducare me rides; as she cannot drive and is fed disabled vision impaired with a service dog. Other things she needs is money to take her service dog to her established vet, for steroid shots as allergic to FL environmental factors, a $15 half price visit fee, and three months of heartworm/ flea Topical Revolution is $49 at vet,$51 through fosters. A very thick rope or leather leash as her leather service dog one broke, and aa that costs more, at least a leash. Used clothes, tea, holostics, any gal or hone beauty stuff would let her feel note dignified. She is about the same size as you, but lost weight, which led to losing an inch and half height, but very long legs.She has not felt or been treated like a woman of dignity in along time. She is single and will only be with a soulmate, if she is ever blessed with that. You can teach me at robgreene7777@gmail.com If you do not want to help, I understand; but you and your friends may enjoy putting g together a food/ servicedog/ makeover for this college educated gal, who also takes care of many hungry and homeless animals for over 25 years, since a teen..She ended up further disabled to fed level, from both a childhood rare condition, worsening and her home and store property flooded down the river in the upstate flood. She is also trying to move to Athens, Ga, so can get her fed access medical and transport without FL state stopping it, unlawfully. She hasfkught for four years, since moved her, self advocating; and its just healthier to move vs advocate day, exhausting her as medical blocked. In Athens, they allow homes to have home stores, and she ran a biz since a teen, building her own brand. She still has her fed Ein number, advertise signs and old state biz licenses. The infrastructure in Athens is a little like NYC, where it is safe to walk with many people, multi store/ Dr etc access nearby, and no subways, but at least better bus transit vs FL, where she has to walk.in dangerous goods and buses hardly run, and noone walking but dangerous types. Again..up to you, and even the smallest need helped, would help and be veey touching to her dignity. She already has a $60 gas card for the move donated. To rent a uhaul, rest gas, rental down deposit, utity depositnd hire a safe driver; she can do on $3-5k, and she can certainly pay her monthly hone rents and utilities. Her move to FL from upatate NY was rushed in the flood emergency. She got her and her animals out, and waabarefoot, in pajamas, no coat, no nothing. She has no idea that her just won Medicare would be a prob in FL, or fact that FL no longer zoned for home biz, as her grandpa taught her to do stores, since young as that is how he built himself up. Please, if care to help, do not judge or be over nosy as Abe is already humiliated enough, dehumanized, and thus is a lot of her diary already. If you must want proof of anything, all can be picture taken and sent via email or text. Thank you..
