Two Ingredient Dough Breadsticks are the perfect side dish for pasta night! They’re EASY to make with no yeast and no waiting for dough to rise!
Whether you are looking for an easy bread to serve with dinner or are on Weight Watchers and need a low SmartPoints bread fix, these two ingredient dough breadsticks are the perfect thing to make! They are super easy to make and no one will know that the dough includes Greek yogurt.
My family likes to eat them with soup, spaghetti, and pizza or as an after-school snack. One of my readers likes to split the breadsticks and use them as hot dog buns!
But before we get started on the recipe, I want to make something clear (since someone always gets mad about this) the DOUGH for the breadsticks is made with only two ingredients. I like to increase the flavor of the breadsticks by brushing them with garlic butter. That increases the total number of ingredients, for making the breadsticks EXACTLY like I did, to four.

How To Make Two Ingredient Dough Breadsticks
Step One: Two Ingredients
The dough for these breadsticks couldn’t be easier to make! All you need to do is mix up the self-rising flour and Greek yogurt.
Don’t worry if you don’t have self-rising flour, you can easily make it yourself. For one cup of self-rising flour, whisk together one cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
Step Two: Mixing
I like making my dough in my stand mixer and dough hook attachment because it does most of the kneading for me. If you want to get a little workout in while doing your baking, mix and knead the dough by hand.
Step Three: Knead
Once the dough is ready, dump it out of the bowl and onto a floured surface. Knead it a couple of times and form a loaf shape.
I like to use a silicone mat for this step but a floured cutting board or countertop work too.
Step Four: Slice
Next, cut the dough into as many pieces as you want breadsticks. I want to make thicker, rounder breadsticks so I cut it into six segments.
Step Five: Roll
Once the dough has been divided use both hands to roll the breadsticks out to the length and thickness you desire.
Step Six: Bake
Cover the baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup and to prevent sticking or spray your baking sheet with cooking spray.
These breadsticks took about 13 minutes in my oven. The baking time may vary depending on the number and thickness of your breadsticks.
Step Seven: Garlic Butter
We love to brush the baked breadsticks with garlic butter. My kids also love adding grated Parmesan on top.
Of course, this isn’t a low points option if you are doing WW. As an alternative, I would suggest using a little butter spray (or butter alternative) and then sprinkling them with garlic salt.
Two Ingredient Dough Breadsticks Recipe FAQs
1) Can you share how to make self-rising flour? To make one cup of self-rising flour, put one cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a bowl and stir to combine.
2) What brand of plain Greek yogurt do you suggest? You can use whatever kind is available at your local grocery store. I’ve made two ingredient dough with Fage, Oikos, and the store brand and haven’t noticed a difference.
3) Do I have to use plain, fat-free, Greek yogurt for this recipe? No, you can use full fat, 2% or 5% if you prefer but they are not on the zero points list.
4) Can I use other kinds of yogurt? Yes, my readers have reported making two ingredient dough with whole milk yogurt and even buttermilk (though more flour was needed for that one).
5) What should I do if the dough is way too sticky? Knead in a little more flour at a time until it is workable.
6) Can I make these two-ingredient dough breadsticks without a mixer? Yes! Stir the self-rising flour and Greek yogurt together until combined. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth.
7) How many Weight Watchers points is this two ingredient dough? I don’t have a points calculator but I’ve read online that one batch of this two ingredient dough is 12 smart points (for the WHOLE BATCH). So if you make 6 breadsticks, they are 2 points each without any toppings.

Wonderful recipe! I didn’t have Greek yogurt so substituted some older full fat sour cream. Unbelievably moist and fluffy inside with a nice crust. Super easy and will definitely make these again, thanks!
tried this recipe the 2nd time today. still can’t use the 1:1 ratio. i guess my greek yoghurt just isn’t as thick as the ones you’re using. but not an issue. mine turned out to be 1:2 (yeah, my supposedly greek yoghurt was THAT runny). but still turned out delish and oh so easy to make. thank you for this marvelous recipe
Mine was way to watery and didnt form into dough. I used self-rising flour and the right measurement. What could be wrong?
What kind of yogurt did you use? The fat-free Greek yogurt I’ve used is super thick so I’m wondering if that could be the difference? My teenage son just made two-ingredient dough for focaccia bread on Sunday and he commented on how thick the yogurt was because it surprised him.
These were great!!!! Super easy and quite tasty. Thank you for the recipe. I will definitely make them again.

Really good! I’ll make these again and again. Next time I think I’ll mix a little garlic salt in with the flour before mixing.
