2-Ingredient Grilled Pizza Dough

This pizza dough comes together in just ten minutes, with no rising or resting time but it still has a complex flavor and chewy texture that mimics the real thing. The yogurt in the dough helps make it tender and pliable so it's easy to roll and shape and won't fall apart on the grill. As a bonus, you can use any plain Greek yogurt you have on hand—from full-fat to non-fat (though full-fat yogurt will yield a slightly more tender crust).

Ingredients

2 cups self-rising flour, plus more for dusting (see Cook's Note)

1 1/4 cups plain Greek yogurt

Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing

Pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella and toppings of your choice

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat. (If your grill has a thermometer, it should reach about 450 degrees F.)
  2. Put the flour and yogurt in a large bowl and mix with a fork until a shaggy dough forms. (The dough may appear dry and crumbly at first, but it will come together as you mix it.) Work the dough in the bowl with your hands into a cohesive ball, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of water if it is too crumbly to come together. Turn the mixture out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until the dough is smooth and slightly elastic, 7 to 8 minutes, dusting with a little more flour as necessary.
  3. Divide the dough in half. Roll each ball on a piece of parchment into a 10- to 11-inch round. Brush the tops of the rounds with olive oil. Slide your hand under each parchment sheet, then invert the dough round onto the grill, peeling away (but not discarding) the parchment. Cover grill and cook until the crust is browned and well marked on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip each round back onto the parchment piece, grilled-side up. 
  4. Top crusts with sauce, mozzarella and desired toppings, leaving a half-inch border around the edge. Slide the pizzas off the parchment and back onto the grill. Cover and grill until the underside is browned and well-marked and the cheese is bubbly, 4 to 5 minutes. 

Cook’s Note

When measuring flour, we spoon it into a dry measuring cup and level off excess. (Scooping directly from the bag compacts the flour, resulting in dry baked goods.)
