2 Ingredient Pizza Base – great for lunch boxes

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

A quick and easy 2 ingredient pizza base recipe that’s perfect for family pizza nights or freezer-friendly school lunchbox snacks.

2 ingredient pizza bases – it doesn’t get much easier than that! We just add whatever we have in the fridge to these. One of my kids is happy with just cheese, another likes ham and cheese, and then my son wants the lot – ham, cheese, capsicum, onion, and olives!  This 2 ingredient pizza base recipe is the same as my 2 ingredient scroll recipe – so very easy to make – and will only take you 5 minutes to roll out. I sometimes make this towards the end of the week when I have run out of bread and have some extra deli meat and vegetables that need using up.

Make dough as per the recipe below, which is basically equal parts self-raising flour to greek yoghurt, but you may need to play and add more flour if your mix is too wet. Use a rolling pin to roll into rounds.

Add your desired toppings.  I smear a little pizza sauce over the base then top with ham, capsicum, onion and cheese.

Options are limitless really, try salami, bacon, spinach, fetta, basil, mushroom, cherry tomatoes, chicken, left over sausage or mince.

Place in the oven on a lined baking tray and cook until cheese has browned, allow to stand for a few minutes then place on an oven tray to cool slightly before eating.

I made a batch of Greek yogurt overnight last night, so this is perfect timing for me to make these.
I have a question though: how long do you think they would keep for in the freezer?

One batch only makes 8, so we have usually eaten ours within 2 weeks, however, most items in these containers last up to 3 months. Hope you enjoy them! Clever you for making greek yoghurt, this is something I haven’t attempted yet.

Thanks for the reply – I know you’ve got loads of messages to reply to at the moment 😉
I absolutely hate making lunch with a passion so i try to have sandwiches frozen so my eldest daughter (11) just needs to grab them and reheat in the oven when everyone is hungry (we homeschool so I don’t have to do “school” lunches, but they still need to be fed – haha!). And I try to only shop once a month, therefore freezing is a must.
So I was thinking a big batch of these would be good a good addition to our freezer stash – yummy!!!

Also, you should totally give making Greek yogurt a go (I know, with all your spare time!! Ha!). It’s nice and easy in the thermomix and if you use the Coles or Woolworths plain branded milk it works out at $1.50 a litre for the first few batches where you buy a yogurt to use as a starter, and once you’re using your own starter it’s only $1 a litre! Crazy cheap! Good luck when you eventually try it 🙂

Miriam do you make your yogurt with fresh milk not UHT? This alone could make my buy a Thermomix!

Hi Suzanne 🙂
I use regular milk from the fridge section in the supermarket 🙂
I love my thermomix but it’s not essential for yogurt making (or much else actually). I used to make it on the stove top all the time. For stove top making you need a thermometer though, and you need to hang around with the milk to ensure it doesn’t boil. It’s definitely less hassle in the thermomix, but I have an older thermomix so I still need to do different things at different stages. The new thermomix has a yogurt making recipe chip and it automatically does it mostly on its own 😉 I’d really like one of those!!!!! 😀
To make the yogurt super creamy it needs to be strained once it’s set but I can never be bothered doing that. Maybe one day I’ll buy a very fine strainer with a large capacity so that it would be just a matter of dumping the yogurt in and coming back an hour later. 🙂

I’m wondering, as we don’t have ‘Greek’ yoghurt, would ‘natural’ yoghurt produce the same results???
These look sooooo easy, my nearly 4 yr old is going to love helping me make these!

i’d like to say yes, it’s just a different flavour. Reader Karen shared a photo on facebook this morning she uses plain yoghurt and natural yoghurt and also puts in vegetables into her pizza base, here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/organisedhousewife/photos/a.149772591723365.25174.139805952720029/1106783826022232/?type=3&theater

I’m going to give these a go with gluten free self raising flour, I’ll let you know how they turn out (might try with rice flour too)

How do they go eaten cold? Do they taste good still?

I do prefer them warmer but they are still just as good cold, the kids have them in their lunchbox cold.

We made these with the gluten free self raising flour and they turned out fairly good, however you need more flour to yoghurt. Not sure of the exact ratio but something like 1.5:1 to 2:1
