Personal Pizza Crust

Two ingredient dough has taken the internet (errr... I guess I should say the Weight Watchers internet) by storm. I tried it over a month ago to make 2 ingredient bagels and was a big fan. The basic dough recipe is just 1/2 cup Greek nonfat yogurt and 1/2 cup self rising flour. That is the base and from there you can do whatever you want with it. I've seen people make doughnuts, calzones, strombolis, biscuits, bread sticks, and more. I have used it to make a personal pizza dough a few times now and I have to say it's really a great use! The best part is you don't need to mess with yeast, you can make it in under 5 minutes, and it crisps up beautifully if you cook it on a pizza stone.

My one cautionary tale here is I still haven't perfected how to cook it on my pizza stone because the yogurt seems to just be a little stickier than traditional crust. I'm thinking the go-to method will be parchment paper on top of the pizza stone. I hate when my dough sticks to my stone and I lose the crispy bottom! That issues aside this has been a go to recipe for me when I'm not sure what to make for dinner!

6 Points on Weight Watchers Freestyle (for just the crust- Some flours will make it only 5sp so check your brand!)

1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1/4 tsp Italian seasonings
1/4 tsp garlic powder

1- Preheat the oven to 425.  Stir your seasonings into your flour mixture. Mix well.
2- Add the yogurt. Slowly work the yogurt into the flour. You will need to use your hands to get it fully incorporated.
3- Transfer the dough to a work surface. Kneed and fold the dough several times until it's smooth. Roll out your dough.
4- Transfer the rolled out dough to a preheated pizza stone (or just on a baking sheet).
5- Allow the dough to bake for about 10 minutes or until it is slightly golden brown around the edges.
6- Remove your stone and top your pizza with sauce, cheese, and any toppings you may like.
7- Bake until cheese is melted.
