Versatile Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free Dough
When you follow a gluten-free or celiac diet sometimes it’s so easy to feel like there is absolutely nothing you can eat. Nice things like pizza are usually off-limits. It’s pretty rough but chin up, because this two-ingredient gluten-free dough will open up a whole new world of tasty baked goodies that are usually not an option for you!

Of course, there are recipes that make substitutes for gluten-free pastries and doughs. However, the problem with those recipes is that they’re usually super difficult to make!
And who has time for that when all you really want to do is to go to the shops and buy a pizza?
I never used to make homemade pizza. My sister did and hers was amazing. To me, making dough just sounded like too much work until I found a two-ingredient recipe on Pinterest.
It wasn’t gluten-free which meant I had to swap the ingredients and make a gluten-free version. So I played around with the ingredients and ratios and came up with this awesome two-ingredient gluten-free dough.
So, all you need are plain or greek yogurt and self-raising gluten-free flour. Ok, I imagine you’re thinking, wow, how could it be that simple? How would it even work?
Well, of course, you need flour to make the dough so that’s what the self-raising gluten-free flour is for. And then you need some sort of raising and binding agent which is where the plain yogurt comes in.
It’s that simple.
The best thing about this dough is that it’s super versatile and works really well in quite a few different recipes.
Once you’ve tried it in one recipe you’ll get a feel for how to use it in others.
Recipes To Make With This Dough
Just to give you some ideas I have used it as a pizza dough. It makes a perfect pizza base! I’ve also used it to make garlic bites (delicious savory snacks coming to the blog soon). And I’ve used it to make Tasty Tornadoes.
There are a couple of other recipes that I’m excited to try it in and I’ll definitely be posting the ones that work.
Obviously, a few recipes have flopped but I will share with you the ones that are successful, simple, and delicious.

I often say that I don’t like cooking but I actually quite enjoy it when I find recipes that are quick to do. And so I focus most of my time in the kitchen on finding recipes that are delicious but simple.
When we changed over from a normal diet to a gluten-free diet I faced a new challenge. Although a lot of gluten-free recipes are delicious they’re definitely not simple! Most require lots of ingredients that sound exotic and aren’t usually found at your local supermarket.
So, of course, the swap over was quite daunting but I soon got the hang of it. Now, whenever I can I focus on simplifying gluten-free recipes and finding ones that are easy to make and only need a few ingredients.
This two-ingredient pizza dough is one of them. Another one, my husband’s favorite, is gluten-free malva pudding (recipe coming soon).
If you thought you couldn’t eat malva pudding on a gluten-free diet, I’m happy to tell you, you’re wrong!
This recipe is really simple and it is absolutely divine!

By the way, if you’ve never had malva pudding you do not know what you are missing!
Anyway Back To The Awesome Versatile Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free Dough
Here’s the recipe
Two-Ingredient Gluten-Free DoughCourse: Snacks, Lunch, DinnerCuisine: Not SpecificDifficulty: Easy
1 sheet of pastryservings
Make a delicious pizza, Tasty Tornadoes, or get creative using this super easy, two-ingredient, gluten-free, dough in any way you like!
1/3 cup of plain or Greek yogurt
1 cup of Self-Raising Gluten-Free Flour
- Sieve the flour then add the yogurt.
- Mix with a spoon until it forms a crumbly dough. Knead the dough with your hands. It might look a little dry but don’t add more yogurt. As you knead the dough it will begin to form into a nice round ball.
- Lay out some glad wrap on your countertop. Stick it down with tape (I use masking tape). Also, wrap your rolling pin in glad wrap.
- On the glad wrap roll dough out to the desired shape for whatever recipe you’re planning on making.
- It can be frozen so if you want to freeze some roll it out and then roll it up into a sheet of foil. Thaw completely before using it.
Just A Tip –
When you’re using this to make a pizza base, roll out and place in the oven for five minutes at 180 degrees celcius. Take out and add your pre-cooked toppings before baking for another twenty minutes.
