2 Ingredient Dough

Author: Jillian Foster   Date Posted:26 July 2018 

If you’re anything like me, you are always on the hunt for quick, easy food ideas that are healthy and the whole family will love. Most of us are time poor and sometimes lacking inspiration when it comes to cooking. If you have fussy eaters, it can be even harder to come up with quick lunchbox options that won’t end up in the bin……….Let me introduce you to the 2 ingredient dough!

 

Here’s the basic recipe and method.                          

 

Ingredients:

 

Method:

  1. Combine yoghurt and flour in a mixing bowl and mix until ingredients are well formed.
  2. If the dough still feels sticky, continue to sprinkle flour until it feels solid and easy to separate.
  3. Continue to knead the dough for 4-5 minutes.

 

Now the fun begins! You can use this base dough for so many different recipes – pizza, sweet or savoury scrolls, bagels, pretzels, calzone and bread sticks. Here are a few we like.

 

Pizza scrolls

 

Preheat oven to 180C

Use a floured rolling pin and start to roll the dough out to an even consistency that is not too thick (about 3-5mm). Brush the dough with some melted butter or olive oil (approx. 50g) all the way to the edges.

Top the dough with tomato paste, sprinkle of oregano, mozzarella cheese and any other toppings you like (capsicum, mushroom, tomato, ham, red onion, feta, olives….), just remember that you still need to roll the dough and toppings into a scroll so don’t go too crazy.

Once you have added your chosen toppings, roll the dough from the long side into a long log. Cut into 4cm pieces and place onto a lined baking tray. You can brush a little more butter or olive oil over the top of the scrolls before placing them in the oven.

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden.

 

 

Bagels

 

Preheat oven to 180C.

Shape your 2 ingredient dough into a disc shape and then cut into four equal pieces.

Roll each piece into a small ball and flatten to about 1.5cm thickness. Either use your fingers or the back of a spoon to hollow out the centre of the bagel.

Brush the tops with olive oil, sprinkle with salt or poppy seeds or sesame seeds (any seasoning you choose).

(Optional – you can also beat an egg and brush the top of the bagel with this before sprinkling with seasoning)

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.

 

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

  • 2 ingredient dough (you can add 1 tspn cinnamon and 1 tspn vanilla to this for extra flavour)
  • 1 large apple, peeled and grated
  • 2 tspns cinnamon
  • 1 tbspn coconut sugar/rapadura sugar or you could use 2 tbspn honey/rice malt syrup

 

Preheat oven to 180C

Use a floured rolling pin; roll the dough out to an even consistency that is not too thick (about 3-5mm). Brush the dough with some melted butter all the way to the edges.

Sprinkle the cinnamon, apple and sugar/honey over the top.

Roll the dough from the long side into a long log. Cut into 4cm pieces and place onto a lined baking tray. Brush a little more butter over the top of the scrolls before placing them in the oven.

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden.

(Optional – you can drizzle a thin icing over the top for extra sweetness or add in some sultanas as one of your toppings)

 

Dough tips:

When rolling out the dough you will need extra flour, this dough is stickier than others. Coat your hands and bench in flour to make it easier to work with.

If gluten free, you can substitute with gluten free flour. Try to use flour that has a similar consistency to wheat flour, nut flours (such as almond flour) don’t work very well.

If dairy free, you can substitute with a dairy free yoghurt, again use something with a similar consistency to greek yoghurt.
