2- Ingredient Dough and 5 Uses for It

If you have even thought of starting Weight Watchers at all in the past year you've probably heard of the 2- ingredient bagels.  I love them but actually use the dough for so much more than just bagels. 




I thought I'd share this super simple recipe today and show you some of the ways we've used this dough... so far!

2 ingredients needed (makes 4 servings):

1 cup fat free Greek yogurt
1 cup Self- rising flour.


1.  Homemade pizzas:  When making homemade pizzas we like to make 6 individual pizzas so we can all add our own toppings. I use 1 1/2 cups each of the yogurt and flour then divide the dough into 6 equal portions.  With 1/2 cup fat free mozzarella cheese and a 1/4 cup pizza sauce that makes our pizzas around 7 points for an entire individual pizza compared to 8 or 9 points a slice of restaurant pizza that is huge!



2.  Bagels (of course):  normal bagels run around 9 points each but these bagels are just 3!  When mixing up bagels I tend to use 3 cups of each and make up a batch of 12.  They freeze beautifully but with 5 of us in the house I rarely have time to get them to the freezer!  I like my bagels plain but you can add an egg wash and top them with some of Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning for a delicious everything bagel that is still only 3 points. Baked at 375 for 20 minutes they always turn out perfectly.  I follow this recipe from All That Life Stuff as I just love how she makes her bagels; so much easier than rolling them out and trying to get them stick back together.  



3.  To top chicken or turkey pot pie: Typically when I'm making a pot pie I am planning on 6 servings so I use 1 cup each of the yogurt and flour.  I roll out the dough to the approximate size of my pan and make sure to put a few fork holes in it for steam and even some of the sauce to escape if need be.  It makes a delicious crust on our pot pies that taste great re-heated too and at only 3 points a serving it is quite filling.




4.  For homemade cinnamon buns!  Now I am the first person to admit that these rolls do not taste like the traditional cinnamon rolls but they do hit the spot when a sweet craving hits and I don't to blow all my daily points on a single snack. 



5.   For garlic bread sticks!  I know I just shared these on the blog yesterday but they are amazing and I just know if you follow WW at all you'll probably love these.  All the garlic bread taste with only a fraction of the points.

  3. I’ve used this dough for bagels and for pizza dough. It’s funny because on the green plan, it ends up being way more points than ok the blue plan, so haven’t made it as much recently. When I was on my big ww journey 2 ingredient bagels were life! Thanks for linking up my post ♥️

    1. Yeah, I tried out the other two plans for a bit but ended up back with the blue plan since most of my favorite foods were on it.
