What is 2 ingredient dough?
2 ingredient dough is one of the most popular Weight Watchers recipes. It is a recipe for making dough that is low calorie and low fat. This dough tastes just like traditional dough but it is made with only 2 ingredients, self rising flour and Greek yogurt.
Why Choose 2 Ingredient Dough Versus Traditional Dough?
The beauty of 2 ingredient dough is that it is only 2 ingredients. There is no yeast involved, which means no leavening or rising required. There is no waiting period required between when you start mixing the ingredients and when you’re ready to eat your treat, like pizza. You can literally be eating pizza in 15 minutes or less!
What Type of Flour Should I Use?
For this recipe you want to use self rising flour. This is a special kind of flour that has everything you need in it. That is how this easy bread dough recipe can be only 2 ingredients.
What is Self Rising Flour
Self-rising flour is a type of flour that has baking powder and salt added to it. It’s used in recipes where you would otherwise add those two ingredients to the dry mix.
Can I Make a Self-Rising Flour Substitute?
If you don’t have self rising flour, that is ok. You can easily make it yourself. It takes 1 cup of all purpose flour, 2 tsp of baking powder and 1/4 tsp of salt. It is so simple. What truly makes self rising flour different is the baking powder. It makes the dough rise when you bake it.
What about other Flours
I have not tested this with other flours. You can try gluten free flours, or other flour alternatives like almond flour or coconut flour but you will need to play with the ratios because these flours are not the same as all purpose flour or self rising flour.
What Type of Yogurt Should I Use?
It is important to use Greek Yogurt. When making this a Weight Watchers pastry recipe or any type of low calorie and low fat bread, you want to make sure to use fat free Greek yogurt. You do not want to use regular yogurt because it has more liquid in it. Because of the liquid, it will throw the ratios off.
How Long to Cook 2 Ingredient Dough
That really depends on what you are making with the dough. The average time is about 15 to 20 minutes, but something might take a little more and some might take a little less.
What I love about this dough is all of the things that you can make with it. I can make:
- Weight Watchers Pizza
- 2 ingredient dough bagels
- 2 ingredient dough cinnamon rolls
- Pretzel bites
- naan bread
- garlic breadsticks
- biscuits or breakfast sandwiches
- Healthy Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Pocket
- Homemade Pop Tarts
- Pie Crust Like Healthy Apple Pie
- Skinny Strawberry Pie
- WW Air Fryer Funnel Cake Bites
- And just about anything else that I would use dough for. I can not wait to start making as many treats and cheat foods that I can.
My 2 Ingredient Dough is Too Sticky
I add a little extra flour when my dough is sticky. First, I put the flour on my hands, the table and the rolling pin. I knead the flour in until it is workable.
Can I use a Stand Mixer for Weight Watchers Dough
Absolutely. I don’t always want to bring my out so I tend to do it by hand because it is easy to do. But you can certainly use a stand mixer. If you are using a stand mixer I would recommend using a dough hook.
Can This Dough Be Made in Advanced
This dough is so easy to make. Making it in advance lets you stay on track and have it on hand. You make this dough 48 hours in advance and you can also freeze it.
Can 2 Ingredient Dough be Frozen
You can easily freeze this Weight Watchers Pastry Recipe. After you can make the dough you can freeze it for up to 3 months. You can portion the dough into the amounts you need, or freeze it as a whole. Wrap the dough well in plastic wrap. When you are ready to use the dough, place it in the refrigerator to thaw.
