Yoghurt pizza base

I’ve had this on my list to try for a while and yesterday I had a hankering for pizza for lunch so decided this was the time to try it.

The recipe reads

Ingredients : 1 1/2 cups of self raising flour and 1 cup of greek yoghurt (I used low fat)

Mix together until all combined then with some extra flour on your board/bench knead dough until it looks right (5 to 10 mins).

Sit for 5 mins,  cut in half and roll into 2 pizza bases pop onto trays,  top with tomato or bbq sauce and your toppings of choice.

Bake in a preheated 220*C oven until done. Seemed easy enough.

I didn’t want to wait for my big oven to heat so I made half the above recipe, cut dough in half which made two single serve pizzas and used my air fryer to bake.

In my mind they turned out ok. Are they like a store bought pizza with this dough, no they are not in my opinion nothing beats a good yeast based dough BUT, if you’re in the mood and want one quickly this will do the job.

Drawback, my air fryer only goes up to 200*C and you need a hot oven to cook a good dough so therefore even with the highest heat the very centre of the dough did not cook as much as it should have. For the air fryer I made myself a little tray out of baking paper and after 3 mins of cooking slid it out so the base could cook properly and cooked for another 3 mins. I used the same baking paper for the two single pizzas.

So for myself if I was wanting a single pizza and these are the ingredients I had I’d do it for me but not sure hubby would like it.  Chances are it probably wouldn’t bother the kids either.

My pizza topping as it’s all I had in the fridge were tomato sauce, leftover chicken, ham,  onion, cheese and some feta. I wonder if this dough would work for a calzone?
