See my recipes below in the section titled other 2 Ingredient Dough Recipes!

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.

Recipe FAQS

Is 2 Ingredient dough sticky?

Having trouble getting the dough to work? Here are some tips to help.

How to store 2 ingredient 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.

How to make 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.

    I don't live at a high altitude, hope you can figure it out!

  2. Tamara says

    Has anyone successfully made anything with the 2 ingredient dough at high altitude? I live above 5000 feet and can't seem to get the dough to rise properly no matter what I try.

  3. Dot says

    I use this two ingredient weight watcher dough all the time. my cinnamon rolls have one point or less because I use the spray on the dough sometimes sometimes I don't use it, and I use cinnamon and diet brown sugar. you couldn't get about 14 cinnamon rolls out of this much dough. I also use diet powdered sugar for an icing. depending how many I make sometimes it's 0.80 on the points. excellent my girls love them. and these are older girls like 60.

  4. Jenna says

    There are better ways around that. Just copy and paste the text to a word doc and print it.

  5. Jenna says

    No you do not need a stand mixer to blend this dough. Just your hands.

  6. Erica says

    Do you use a stand mixer to blend? Sorry, new to making any dough besides cookie 🙂

  7. Jenna says

    You can make bread dough out of this. If you want a larger sized piece of bread double the recipe.
