I use this simple dough mixture a lot. I’ve made scrolls for the lunch box & flat bread for soup, and I also use this recipe for pizza bases sometimes. Personally, I prefer the regular pizza base recipe, however this is so quick and easy and the husband and the kids love it so I often whip this up for a quick & fun dinner night.
The children love picking their own toppings to build their pizza and it’s a lovely family activity to do.
2 Cups SR Flour (300 grams)
1 Cup Greek Yoghurt (280 grams)
Dough Method – Regular
1. Place yoghurt & 1 cup of SR flour into a large mixing bowl.
2. Mix with a spoon until just combined.
3. Add the rest of the flour, a little bit at a time, and use your hands to work through until you have formed a dough ball.
4. Knead for about 5 minutes on a floured board or bench.
5. Cut dough in half, and then each half in three pieces. This makes 6 mini pizza bases (approximately the size of a bread & butter plate).
6. Roll out each piece to about half a centremetre thickness each.
7. Top with favourite toppings and baking in a pre-heated 190°C oven for about 15 minutes, until toppings are golden. I use a flat baking tray lined with paper to cook the individual pizzas.
Dough Method – Thermomix
1. Weigh out all ingredients into bowl.
2. Slowly turn to speed 6 for 10 seconds until dough is formed.
3. Lock lid and set timer to 1.5 minutes, kneed option.
4. Remove dough from the Thermomix bowl and place on to a floured board or Thermomix mat.
5. Kneed into a ball. Add a little extra flour when kneading if needed.
6. Cut dough in half, and then each half in three pieces. This makes 6 mini pizza bases (approximately the size of a bread & butter plate).
7. Roll out each piece to about half a centremetre thickness each.
8. Top with favourite toppings and baking in a pre-heated 190°C oven for about 15 minutes, until toppings are golden. I use a flat baking tray lined with paper to cook the individual pizzas.
- Use a little olive oil on the base of the baking paper for added golden flavour to the base of the pizza.
- For a cheesy crust, sprinkle cheese along the outside of the dough circle and fold the edge over the cheese to incase it (you can see what this looks like here)
I lay out various ingredients in small ceramic bowls so it’s easy for the kids to decide on their toppings. This is what I had on hand but we enjoy a lot of different toppings.

This is my son’s pizza. I had to laugh because he just put on heaps of meat and then “Spinach to make it a bit healthy”. No cheese — nothing but meat and spinach.
My eldest daughter, however, likes the lot.
