    Frugal Pizza base, only 2 ingredients

    Looking for a frugal option for a pizza night. When money is tight or unable to shop this week.

    This option may help you out, it’s not Italian by a long short, but it does stretch the budget a lot.

    You only need 2 ingredients and toppings that you have around your place.

    Frugal Pizza base, only 2 ingredients
    The ingredients are plain/natural yoghurt (no flavours) and self-raising flour. Use 1 quantity yoghurt to 2 quantities flour. EG 1 cup yoghurt and 2 cups SR flour.

    Mix together, then wrap the dough in clingwrap. Rest on the bench for about half an hour. You then roll it out and put pizza base on baking paper and used our fingers to flatten/squash out and part-baked in oven for 5-8 minutes, then added toppings with whatever you like on a pizza and put back in. Cook as you would any pizza.

    Notes:
    * I think the cultures in the yoghurt help it to rise.
    * I roll mine out fairly thin, about 5mm. Any thicker and it doesn't really cook through..
    * If you are using Greek yogurt it’s too thick just add little bit of milk to thin it out.

    Gluten Free Pizza Base

    GF pizza tonight and it was yum (I preferred it to the GF ready bases in supermarkets).

    Same method as above 2 cups Self Raising GF Flour to 1 cup of plain natural yogurt and adjust to add bit more yogurt until a soft dough. Leave for 1/2 hour. Add extra flour when taking out. We put pizza base on baking paper and used our fingers to flatten/squash out and part-baked in oven for 5-8 minutes, then added toppings and put back in. We use 'pasta sauce' to spread on base, then your favourite toppings and Edam cheese. Got leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

      Quick Vegetarian Pizza

      Serves: 6
      Description: Everyone will enjoy making this easy Pizza - there's no kneading required, no waiting for the dough to rise with this recipe.

      Ingredients:
      1 cup self-raising flour
      1/4 tsp salt
      4-6 tbsp Greek-style yoghurt
      1/2 green capsicum, cut into bite-size pieces
      1/2 red capsicum, cut into bite-size pieces
      4 medium mushrooms, sliced
      2 tbsp olive oil, mixed with 1 chopped garlic clove
      About 3 tbsp Italian-style tomato sauce
      3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
      10 black olives, pitted
      Method:
      Preheat oven to 250C / About 500F
      1. Combine flour, salt and yoghurt in a bowl until a soft dough forms. You need to obtain an easy-to-roll dough texture. Don't knead the dough.
      2. Roll out the dough very thinly and place on a greased pizza tray, about 24 cm. Brush dough with the oil and garlic and spread the tomato sauce over the top.
      3. Prepare the vegetables. Scatter half the cheese over the top along with capsicum pieces, sliced mushrooms and the olives. Top with remaining cheese.
      4. Cook in a very hot oven for 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the dough has browned underneath. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
      5. Easy Pizza Base: There is no kneading required, no waiting for the dough to rise with this recipe. Ingredients are simply mixed together.
