2 Ingredient Dough Personal Pan Pizza
Today, we’re making 2 Ingredient Dough Personal Pan Pizza!
There are so many great things to say about these single serve pizzas. One, they’re adorable. Two, they’re quick and easy. Three, they’re totally customizable so you can make them in whatever flavor you desire. And four, to me, they taste like pure nostalgia.
We’ve talked about this magical base dough a million times here before, so this simple mix of Greek yogurt and self rising flour should be no surprise to you. I like to add a little pinch of garlic powder to my dough for this pizza to add a little bit of extra flavor. So, making our pizza dough is as simple as mixing the flour, yogurt, and garlic powder together until it forms a dough, kneading it a couple times, and pressing it into a mini cast iron skillet that’s been brushed with olive oil. That’s it. It’s the easiest pizza dough you’ll ever make!
The magic of this pizza is that you can top it with anything you want. For the purposes of this recipe, I’m keeping things simple with some marinara and cheese. But, the world is your pizza shop here. Like veggies…load’em up. Want a meat lovers pizza…go for it. Wanna make a white pizza…do it! When we press the dough into the skillet, we’re going to leave a little lip area for our deep dish style crust. So load up your sauce and toppings in the center of the pizza, brush that hangover dough with a little extra olive oil, and these babes are ready to bake.
Now, these are specifically designed to be personal pan, single serving pizzas. But of course, you could make a big ol’ skillet pizza to feed your family too. I have some tips in the recipe notes on how to multiply this recipe to feed a crowd. But really, who doesn’t think these little 6.5 inch pizzas are the cutest things ever?
When our pizza is finished baking, we’ll let it rest in the pan for just a couple of minutes. And then, we can pop it right out of the skillet. From there, it’s time to eat.
These pizzas remind me of the pizzas we used to get in school lunches as a kid. The pizza dough is a little bit more bready and less chewy than a traditional pizza dough. But, that texture is what reminds me of childhood. There’s the perfect ratio of sauce to cheese to dough. And, any toppings you choose to add is just a bonus. On top of being a slightly healthier alternative to traditional pizza dough, you can’t beat an option that let’s you have pizza on the table in under 25 minutes from start to finish.
As we’ve seen time and time again, this dough truly is magic!
Ok, everyone. I think I know what’s next to tackle in the 2 ingredient dough playbook. If there’s anything you’d like to see me make with this dough, please let me know!
For now, enjoy! And, let’s eat!
2 Ingredient Dough Personal Pan Pizza
- ¼ cup + 2 tbsp self rising flour, plus more for dusting
- ¼ cup non-fat plain greek yogurt
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp marinara sauce
- ¼ cup shredded mozzarella
- ½ tbsp olive oil, divided
- additional pizza toppings, as desired
- Preheat oven to 425 degree. Brush the bottom and sides of a 6.5 inch cast iron skillet with 1 tsp olive oil. Set aside.
- To a mixing bowl, add flour and yogurt. Mix with a sturdy spatula until ingredients start to come together, then use your hands to fully combine the mix and form a dough. Dust a clean surface with flour. Turn the dough out on to the floured surface. Knead the dough two times, turn the dough a quarter of a turn, and repeat until you've kneaded the dough 16- 20 times total, dusting the dough with more flour as necessary to keep the dough from getting sticky. The dough should not be tacky.
- Transfer dough to prepared skillet. Press the dough along the bottom and partially up the sides of the skillet. Top the dough with marinara sauce, mozzarella, and any additional toppings you desire. Use the remaining ½ tsp olive oil to brush the exposed dough.
- Bake for 17-19 minutes until the crust is golden brown. Allow pizza to rest in the skillet for 5 mins before removing and serving. Enjoy!
- *If you wanted to make 1 large pizza for a family instead of 1 small personal pizza, multiply the ingredients by 4. So, you'll use 1 ½ cups flour, 1 cup greek yogurt, and ½ tsp garlic powder. Follow the directions, as listed, but bake your pizza in a 12 inch cast iron skillet and add 2-4 mins in baking time.
- *Feel free to top this pizza with whatever toppings you like. This dough is sturdy enough to handle anything!
