People are making dough for bread, bagels, pizza from home and you only need two ingredients

With food shortages continuing and people being ordered to stay home during the coronavirus lockdown, it's getting pretty tricky to stock up on items we love. 

That said, people have been forced to use up what they already have with many sharing super easy recipes online that even amateur home cooks can whip up with ease,  and this two-ingredient dough is so easy that people have been using it to make all kinds of delicious meals – such as pizza, scrolls and even bagels.

The hashtag #twoingredientdough has been trending on Instagram for some time, but now with everyone home in self-isolation, it has never been more in demand.

Many people have risen to the challenge and created their own dough from scratch using  just self-raising flour and greek yoghurt – yep, greek yoghurt is the missing ingredient we didn't know we needed until now.

So the good news is, so long as you manage to snap up some greek yoghurt from the supermarket and self-raising flour, which you probably already have in the pantry, you are able to make all sorts of goodies for the family that are super quick, super easy and store well for days to come.

While many people have tweaked the recipe slightly according to their cooking ability or preferred taste, the fundamentals remain the same – it's just one part plain Greek yoghurt and one part flour, mixed together before kneading it on a lightly floured surface for five minutes until it's smooth and elastic.

Before you know it, you have the perfect base for all your favourite meal ideas – and it's so easy for the kids to make themselves, too.

In our opinion, you can't go wrong with making home-made pizzas using the two-ingredient dough method.

Once following the method mentioned above, you simply roll out the dough and throw on your favourite pizza toppings before popping it in the oven at 200C  for just 20 minutes, or until it's cooked to your liking.

Or, since a trip to the bakery is out of the question, consider whipping up your own bagels.

While they do take a little longer to prepare, the effort is well worth the end result because you'll end up with a bunch of fresh, home-cooked bagels the whole family will love.

To make the bagels, you need to roll out the dough and shape them into bagel-shaped pieces (round, in case you didn't know) and brush them with egg before topping with sesame seeds or any topping you like.

Ok, so technically you need more than two ingredients for bagels, but so long as you managed to snap up some eggs before the supermarkets run dry, then this too is just as easy to make with ingredients you have at home.

The bagels need just 20 minutes to cook in a 190c oven before turning up the heat for an additional five minutes to make them super cripsy.
