Everything You Need To Make This Two Ingredient Dough Baguette Recipe
What Is Two Ingredient Dough
Two ingredient dough is made with self-rising flour and plain, fat-free Greek yogurt. This simple, yeastless dough recipe can be used to make so many things, from pretzel bites to pizza crust! There is no waiting for the yeast to rise and no kneading for 20 minutes. We’ve been making two ingredient dough for several years now, and we still love it.
How To Make Baguettes With Two Ingredient Dough
We love this dough because it is so easy to make. If the dough gets too wet, add a little more flour, and if it is too dry, you can add more Greek yogurt.
- Dough: Mix together the self-rising flour and Greek yogurt. Turn the dough out onto a floured silicone mat.
- Shape: Knead the dough a few times and then form two loaves. Place the loaves on the prepared baking sheet and cut slits on top of them.
- Bake: Bake the baguettes on the middle rack with hot boiling water in a pan on the lower rack. The hot water creates steam in the oven and helps make the crust get crispy and crackly.

Two Ingredient Dough Baguette Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 425˚F with a cast iron skillet on the bottom rack. Bring 1 1/2 cups of water to a boil in the microwave while preparing the baguettes. Put the self-rising flour and plain, fat-free Greek yogurt in a large bowl.
- Mix on low speed until the dough clumps together.
- Turn out onto a floured surface. Sprinkle with flour, knead several times, and form into a ball. Cut it into two pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a long, narrow loaf shape (about 9 inches by 2 inches).
- Place on a parchment-covered baking sheet and cut three slits into the top of each loaf.
- Place the bread in the oven on the middle and carefully pour 1 1/2 cups of boiling water into the cast iron skillet on the bottom rack (to create steam in the oven for a golden, crispy crust). You can skip the boiling water step for a softer crust.
- Bake at 425˚F for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown.
- Allow the baguettes to cool completely on a wire rack before cutting or storing them.
