Weight Watchers Famous 2 Ingredient Dough recipe using equal parts self-rising flour and Greek Yogurt! This dough recipe can be used to make so many of your favorite foods lower in points.
This Post has been recently updated on 3/30/20 with better instructions that I did by sections called Pizza and Pretzel Bites. The original 2 Ingredient Dough recipe is in the recipe card below then if you want to make pizza or pretzel bites with it go to the section in the post that is title either Pizza or Pretzels. I hope that makes sense! I also left some more helpful tips and tricks for the dough as well.
What can you make with 2 Ingredient Dough?
I think I’ve become obsessed with this 2 ingredient dough recipe just like the rest of the Weight Watcher (#weightwatchers) community has on Instagram. Look up the hashtag #2ingredientdough to see what everyone is making with it!
Since this recipe was posted back in Jan of 2018 I have made SO MANY recipes with this dough now. You can make caramel rolls, cinnamon rolls, pretzel bites, pizza, S’ more Bombs, pizza bombs, calzones, you name it. The sky is the limit with this easy peasy recipe. See my recipes below in the section titled other 2 Ingredient Dough Recipes!
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.
Most homemade pretzel recipes call for using a water bath with baking soda. This just means you bring some boiling water to a boil first then add the baking soda and drop the pretzel dough balls in there. This step is not necessary though but you can do that if you wish.
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. Brush pizza dough lightly with a little olive oil or spray the dough with cooking spray. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Pre-bake the dough on a hot pizza stone or in pizza pan for 6 minutes. Take it out then add toppings.
FYI – sorry about the volume levels!
If you’re afraid of Teflon pans then use something else. I prefer non-stick pans because of easy cleanup.
2 Ingredient Dough Tips
Sticky Dough: Do you find that your dough is really sticky? After making the dough, let it rest for a while in the fridge. I’ve made this recipe plenty of times and placing the dough in the fridge really helps!
Different Ratio: Use less greek yogurt than what the original recipe calls for if your dough is sticky.
How to store the dough: If you don’t want to use all the dough right away stick it on a plate with some saran wrap and place that in the fridge. This dough can also be frozen. Wrap it tightly in saran wrap and place the dough in the freezer until ready to use.
Depending on what you want to make with this dough the serving sizes will be different, but the whole entire dough recipe is 12 smart points. Please use your recipe builder if you substitute with different flours or yogurts.
Dairy Free option: Try to find a nondairy Greek yogurt like Daiya, the points for this would not be zero though. These are usually found in the organic section.
Gluten Free Option: There are MANY recipes out there for 2 Ingredient Dough using Glute-Free Flour now. Just do a google search for this dough recipe using gluten free flour. I tried this with almond flour and the 1:1 ratio didn’t work. The dough was way too sticky. You can always use gluten-free self rising flour.
- 1 cup Bob’s gluten-free self-rising flour
- 1 cup of dairy-free plain yogurt
Homemade self-rising flour:
If you do not have any self-rising flour on hand you can make your own with all purpose flour! Self-rising flour is made of all-purpose flour and baking powder. The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled.
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¾ teaspoon salt
The nutrition info below is for 1 piece if you divide it between 4 pieces.
