Making homemade pizza dough has never been easier than with this three-ingredient recipe. Plain Greek yogurt, self-rising flour and a pinch of sugar are all you need to whip up this dough for your next pizza night.

Pizza night is the night of the week I look forward to the most. Pizza dough is a blank canvas that can be used to create anything you desire. Yes, making homemade dough from scratch can be time-consuming and a pain, but it doesn't have to be anymore. This is the easiest pizza dough recipe I have come across, and the best part is that it tastes fantastic. There are only three (yes, you read that right — three) ingredients in this dough, and there is no rise time. Invite your kids into the kitchen to help you prep the dough and make dinner fun, not stressful.
