Are you trying to lose weight but coming up short when it comes to healthy bread options? Let’s face it – bread is pretty much one of the most amazing foods in life. “Light” bread can feel like you are eating air. The good news is you do not have to give up bread in order to lose weight. Check out this awesome Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough recipe that can be used in so many different ways.
I’ve been following Weight Watchers for many years and I absolutely love what I call Weight Watchers Food Finds. My criteria for a food find is a food that is high in satisfaction but low in points. This Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough totally fits the bill. Plus, it’s super easy to make and fun to use in a variety of ways.
This dough recipe has been around for awhile, but now that plain, non-fat Greek yogurt is zero points with the new Freestyle program, this recipe has taken off. The bagels, breadsticks, and more that you make from this recipe have a tangy flavor similar to sourdough from the Greek yogurt. They are soft on the inside with a chewy crust on the outside that is perfect for any bread lover.

Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Recipe
Here is the basic Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Recipe. This dough recipe has been around for awhile, but now that plain, non-fat Greek yogurt is zero points with the new Freestyle program, this recipe has taken off.
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1 cup plain, non fat Greek yogurt
- Mix flour and yogurt in a bowl. Kneed until dough forms a ball.
- Note: This bread dough is quite sticky. Flour your hands, but keep in mind that adding additional flour adds calories.
- Shape into desired shapes (breadsticks, pretzels, bagels) and place onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat mat.
- Bake in a 350 oven for 18-22 minutes.
Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Tips
Here are a few helpful tips in working with this dough.
- This creates a sticky dough. Work with it as best you can. Flour your hands and your cutting surfaces, but keep in mind the extra points you are adding from additional flour. If you use a lot, consider adding 1-2 points to the recipe total.
- Brush tops of your dough with egg wash (no additional points) to give it color.
- One cup of self-rising flour is 11 points, so divide how many of your end product you get to figure out points per item. From one recipe, 6 bagels are 2 points each or 4 bagels are 3 points each.
- Don’t have self-rising flour? Substitute 1 cup flour, 1.5 tsp baking powder, .5 tsp salt.
- Can whole wheat flour be used in this recipe? Yes, but be warned the end result is not great. Normally I’m a huge fan of white whole wheat flour (I don’t even keep regular flour in the house), but I would say this recipe is an exception. The end product really does taste amazingly better when you splurge on white flour.
- If you are making bagels, check out the Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning for an amazing flavor. Sesame seeds are another great topping choice.
- Because of the stickiness of the dough, I highly recommend parchment paper or a silpat mat.

Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough Recipe Ideas
I love Weight Watchers members creativity! Here are 9 variations of using Weight Watchers 2 Ingredient Dough in different ways.
One of the top ways this recipe is used is for bagels. After making the bagels, dip in boiling water for 1-2 minutes to get that chewy outside crust. Alternatively, you can bake them in a hot 500 oven for 1-2 minutes to make the outside crisp. This is what I do and then have turned out great.
I made mine into little bites that could be eaten dipped in pizza sauce or just plain with a sprinkle of course sea salt.
Form into long breadsticks and bake.

Make individual size pizzas or double the recipe for full-sized pies. Check out Crazy for Crust who shares tips on making this dough into pizza crust.
Fill your dough with sauce, pizza toppings, light cheese, fold over into calzone shape and bake.
Bagel Egg Sandwich
Now that eggs are free on the Weight Watchers Freestyle program, use a bagel for an egg sandwich in the morning (add light cheese and turkey sausage or Canadian bacon if you want) to make an amazing breakfast.
@Jenweightwatcher on Instagram shares this amazing egg sandwich idea.
This dough can even be used to make sweet treats. Keep in mind the additional ingredients add points, but the end results are well worth it.
@ww_oliviaashley shares this pop tart idea. Wow!
