Ingredients

Dough (adapted from skinny taste)

  • 2 cup unbleached all purpose flour or whole wheat or gluten-free mix (see note below)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cups Greek yogurt not regular yogurt, it will be too sticky.

Filling:

  • 1/3 tomato sauce could use pesto too!
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Optional Toppings: cooked broccoli, olives, peppers, pepperoni, sausage

Optional Topping:

  • Garlic Butter: 1 tbsp of butter melted mixed with 1 minced garlic clove
  • Extra Cheese

Instructions

Dough

  • Preheat oven to 400F and lightly spray a muffins tin with oil to avoid sticking
  • In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt and whisk well.
  • Add the yogurt and mix with a spatula until well combined, it will look like small crumbles at first but combine until it forms a smooth dough (I like to switch and use my hands to fully form the dough) - https://amzn.to/3eslZxyIt should be smooth and not sticky when it is ready

Filling:

  • Working on a lightly floured surface or piece of parchment paper roll your dough out into a rectangle, this does not have to be perfect as you can see from my picture above, but it should be about 12 x 16
  • Add your sauce & cheese and additional toppings if you would like
  • Starting from the top of the longer side roll the dough up tightly until it forms a log
  • Cut into 12 slices (my ends were slightly smaller
  • Place them into the muffin tin
  • Brush with garlic butter or sprinkle with extra cheese (optional)
  • Bake for 10 minutes on the lower rack and then rotate and back for 10 mins on the upper rack or until they are lightly browned
  • Let cool 5 minutes before devouring!

Notes

Gluten Free Version: I tested this out once and it does work with Bob's Red Mill 1-1 Gluten Free Mix, but the dough is a little more delicate and harder to roll up.  I was still able to form muffins and get them in tin it was just a little messier.  Increase the cook time by 5-8 minutes.  Also you could use this recipe as a flat pizza and cook for 10-15 mins total at 425.
