2 Ingredient Dough is super simple to make and the options are endless! This dough is Weight Watchers friendly, freezer-friendly, and makes a ton of different foods! 

I've made so many things with 2-ingredient dough, I should probably write a cookbook or something LOL.

If you haven't heard of 2 Ingredient dough, it's basically the best thing since sliced bread! Being a carb lover and being on Weight Watchers really poses a problem! So that's where 2 ingredient dough really comes in handy!

Pretty much anything that has a crust or that is typically made from bread you can make it with this dough.  Depending on if you are craving sweets or something savory, you can change up the spices to put your twist on it!

The dough itself is only two ingredients, but you may want to add additional seasonings and spices, etc to make it taste different for different recipes. From pizza to donuts, you can make pretty much anything with this versatile dough!

How to Make 2 Ingredient Dough

Use self-rising flour and non-fat Greek yogurt. If you don't have self-rising flour, you'll need to add baking powder (2 teaspoons), xantham gum (1 teaspoon), and salt (1/2 teaspoon) to make 2 ingredient dough without it. Makes it 5 ingredient dough but I won't tell anyone.

How Long Does 2 Ingredient Dough Last?

Keep it in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Can You Make 2 Ingredient Dough Gluten-Free?

There are gluten-free flour alternatives that are 1:1 ratio and great for baking, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're the best option for 2 ingredient dough.

In order to make this dough gluten-free, you can use Bob's baking flour with add 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon xantham gum, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, to get the same consistency. Of course, you no longer have two ingredients in the dough, but that's okay. It's now gluten-free and it tastes great!

How to Make 2 Ingredient Dough Dairy-Free

You can use coconut milk yogurt in place of the Greek yogurt to make this 2 ingredient dough dairy-free, just make sure you count the points if you're on Weight Watchers.

How to Make 2 Ingredient Dough Taste Better

The only complaint I've heard about the 2 ingredient dough is that it tastes “sour”. I always add so much flavor to mine that I don't notice that taste! The best way to get rid of the sour taste from the yogurt is to add spices or seasonings of some sort.

For example, if you're making donuts or any type of dessert, you can add vanilla, cinnamon, or other similar flavors.

If you're making pizza dough or breadsticks, add garlic and red pepper.

Of course, adding ingredients means adding points if you're not careful, so make sure you're counting everything you add if you are on Weight Watchers.

Troubleshooting 2 Ingredient Dough

2 ingredient dough too dry? Add more yogurt, a teaspoon at a time, until the right consistency is achieved.

2 ingredient dough sticky? Add more self-rising flour, a tablespoon at a time, until the right consistency is achieved. Always be sure to work on a well-floured surface so the dough doesn't stick.

Does your dough taste sour? Add more spices!

Weight Watchers Points Information

One Cup of Dough is a total of 12 Points. For example, 1 cup of dough will make 4 small/individual pizza crusts. So, each crust (assuming you quarter it) would be 3 points. I hope that makes sense. 1/4 of the dough equals 3 points! All point values through this post are listed for the Freestyle plan for Weight Watchers.
