Easy Pizza Base Recipe Using 2 Ingredients for Cooking with Kids

9th April 2020

Cooking can take a lot of ingredients, but I’ve managed to find an easy pizza base recipe that only requires two ingredients.

The super easy pizza base recipe doesn’t even include the elusive eggs or yeast!

This two-ingredient pizza base is brilliant, because it’s fun and easy to follow, so perfect for kids.

My 8 year old and I made some together on his birthday last week, and did them again yesterday because they taste so good.

The dough forms quickly and easily, and if your children like sensory play it’s a great thing for them to do and leads to a tasty dinner or lunch for them afterwards. My son loved rolling the dough out and decorating it with his favourite toppings the most.

2-Ingredient Easy Pizza Base Recipe

For two or three pizza bases all you need is:

One cup of self raising flour
Half a cup of Greek yogurt

All You Need is Greek Yoghurt & Flour to Make Pizza Bases

Step 1: Make the Base

Mix the flour and yogurt together in a large bowl- the kids may want to do this as it’s fun!

Kneed the bits of flour that stick to the bowl into the mixture and if it’s too sticky add a bit more flour.

Sprinkle some flour onto a flat surface and then roll out the dough to the thickness and size you want.

Sauce Bases & Toppings

For the sauce base, I like using BBQ sauce mixed with ketchup, but you can also use tomato puree or chopped tomatoes and herbs mixed together.

For toppings, we used whatever we had in the fridge. I chopped up peppers, mozzarella, red onion, spring onions and pepperoni and put them in little bowls. My son then got to decorate his pizza as he wished, and we finished them off by sprinkling grated cheese.

Cooking Time

Put the pizzas in the oven on 180 C for around 15 minutes. Keep an eye on it, as they may need slightly longer or shorter depending on the thickness of your base.

Here’s my son’s tasty attempt and mine is at the top of the post!
