2 Ingredient Dough Variations

This is one of the most common questions I get asked about this recipe. I honestly don't have the time to try all the different flour combinations or Greek Yogurt alternatives that will go with this. Any other flour than self-rising flour will need some baking powder or baking soda added to it to help it rise. Some flours like almond flour, the ratio to Greek Yogurt might not be the same. This is the only one I've tested and it was way too wet.

If you think another ingredient will work just test it and see, I'm not stopping you! 🙂

Substitutes for Greek Yogurt - plain regular yogurt, sour cream, dairy-free yogurts (for those with allergies)

Gluten-Free Option: 1 cup Bob's gluten-free self-rising flour to 1 cup Greek yogurt

Low Carb Flours: almond flour, Carb quick, or any other low carb flour option might not work with the same ratio below. Play around with the ratios.

Pretzel Bites

For the pretzel bites, take one piece of the dough and roll it out into a long rope. Then cut (use a bench cutter or knife) them into tiny bitesize pieces like the picture shows above. Brush the dough with egg wash and sprinkle them with some Everything Bagel Seasoning. Use the same time and temperature for baking 350 for 18 to 22 minutes.

Cheese Sauce: Tostitos Medium Salsa Con Queso is what I used. It comes in a jar and usually found by their chips. 2 tablespoons is 1 smart point!

Seasoning: The seasoning I used for the pretzel bites was Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning.


Pretty self-explanatory here. Roll out the dough into a pizza shape and add toppings. Use a higher temperature for baking pizza. I usually do 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

Baking the crust first also works. Brushpizza doughlightly with a little olive oil or spray the dough with cooking spray. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Pre-bake thedoughon a hotpizzastone or inpizzapan for 6 minutes. Take it out then add toppings.
