WATCH | Easy-peasy! 4 things to make from a 2-ingredient dough

Who knew pizza pies, garlic naan, vetkoek and even bagels could all be made from the same simple dough?

2-INGREDIENT DOUGH
Ingredients:

4 cups Sasko Self-Raising Flour

3 cups plain yogurt

Method:

1-Sift the flour into a bowl. Using a spatula, gently fold in the yogurt to form a dough
2-On a floured surface, knead the dough by hand for 5-8 minutes. If too sticky, add more flour, a little at a time, while kneading.
3-Cover and set aside until you’re ready to use your dough.

PIZZA PIE
Ingredients:

1 batch 2-ingredient dough

½ cup tomato puree

1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

½ cup mushrooms, cooked

6 slices ham, cut in cubes

1 egg, beaten (optional)

3 tbsp butter, melted

Salt

Method:

1-Working on a floured surface, divide the dough in two and roll out two equal rounds (23cm diameter).
2-Spread the tomato puree on the bottom half of each pizza base. Top the same half with the cheese, ham and sliced mushrooms.
3-Brush the edge of the top half of each pizza base with water or beaten egg. Fold it over the bottom to create a half-moon shape and crimp the edges with a fork.
4-Carefully transfer the pizza pies to a greased baking sheet. Lightly brush the top of each one with melted butter and season with salt.
5-Bake at 180°C for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown.


GARLIC NAAN
Ingredients:

1 batch 2-ingredient dough

⅓ cup butter, melted

2-Heat a pan. Carefully lay a naan into the pan and fry until slightly puffed with a light char; about 2-3 minutes a side. Repeat with the remaining dough.
3-Combine the crushed garlic with the melted butter. Brush the naans, on both sides, with the garlic butter as soon as they are removed from the pan. Sprinkle with chopped coriander and serve warm with a delicious curry.
