Greek Yogurt Pizza Dough

1 Pizza94 cals

Pizza is back on the diet menu and it’s back with the help of your extra Greek yogurt! This 3 ingredient Greek Yogurt Pizza Dough is crispy, airy, and light with a chewy texture. If you ever had one of those classic personal pan pizzas growing up, imagine that but better!

To make this one all you need is 3 ingredients. We’re going to add them right into a mixing bowl starting with 100 grams of a plain whole milk Greek yogurt, 10 grams of grated parmesan cheese, and 90 grams of self rising flour.

If you don’t have self rising flour you can use this ratio with all purpose:

  • 1 Cup (120g) All Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons (6g) Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon (1.5g) Salt

If you don’t want to use all purpose, I find that I can recreate this fairly well with 1/2 oat flour and 1/2 almond flour. I’ll put all of this organized with conversions in the recipe card below.

From here, mix those 3 ingredients together. Once it’s starts to clump up you can use your hands, it shouldn’t be sticky. Keep it moving by kneading it until everything is thoroughly combined and you have your Greek yogurt pizza dough.

Let that rest for a few minutes while your oven preheats on 450F/232C.

Put your dough onto a piece of lightly floured parchment paper then press or roll it out into your pizza shape. However thin or thick you want your pizza to be is up to you.

Want it crispy? Give your top a quick brush with some olive oil then throw it into your oven for 5-7 minutes.

Once it lightly browns, top it with 1/4 cup of pizza sauce, 1/4 cup of your favorite pizza cheese, and a couple optional pepperonis.

For more protein you can top it with 3 ounces of some lean ground beef, chicken, and so on. I’ll make sure to put the nutritional information for multiple various below.

Last, put your now Greek yogurt pizza back into the oven on 450F/232C for around 10-12 minutes or until it looks like this…

This Greek yogurt pizza dough is delicious and so easy to make. A couple tips?

  1. Garlic or onion powder, oregano, basil, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper are all ways you could add some new flavor to your dough.
  2. Full or reduced fat Greek yogurt will work better than fat free!
  3. If you want a bigger Greek yogurt pizza you can double this recipe.

P.S. Comment your favorite uncommon pizza toppings, I need some new things to try!
