Crazy Easy Bread Dough

Most of you have probably been seeing the really easy bread dough on social media using flour and yogurt. As crazy as it seems, it is really easy and really good. I decided to give it a try using some of my favorite products.

Just a quick chat about products

  • Sunrise Flour Mill Flour – for those of you who have gluten free sensitivity you really may want to check out the Sunrise Flour Mill. I really love this product, I currently have five of their flours. Here is their website if you would like to read about them
  • Fage Yogurt – this is the yogurt I have used, a very nice thick consistency and easy to work with. If you use a yogurt that is liquidity, you will need to strain it first.
  • Penzeys Seasoning – yes I love the freshness of their seasonings, they pack a lot of fresh flavor more then the market brands. The Fox Point is great in these rolls. They have a store in Old Town Arvada and also an online store
  • Maldon Sea Salt – I love the flaked sea salt,I use this on all my focaccia breads and flat bread. I use as a sprinkling on top of the bread, not as an ingredient in the bread dough.
  • EVOO – obviously a very good extra virgin olive oil will always add a great flavor to your dishes. I always use it for drizzling with my breads.
  • Parmesan Cheese – please purchase a good quality wedge of parmesan and use a microplane to grate. Such a huge, huge difference over pre grated or shredded parmesan. Trust me.

Crazy Easy Bread Dough

A really great easy bread dough that you can make and bake in minutes. Its really nice to make such a delicious easy roll to go with a soup or salad quickly.



1 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon Fox Point seasoning

1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

1 cup Fage 0% yogurt

Extra virgin olive oil or melted butter

Fresh parsley minced, grated parmesan and Maldon flaked sea salt for finishing.


In a medium size bowl add all of your dry ingredients, stir with a wooden spoon until everything is all mixed up. Add the fresh parmesan and yogurt stirring until you form a dough ball. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on the counter top or cutting board and kneed the bread dough.

Preheat Air Fryer – 375* for 5 minutes.

Divide the dough in 8 pieces. shape either into 8 rolls, or 8 logs and create a knot. Brush each roll with olive oil or melted butter. Place in the air fryer that has been sprayed with oil.  Baking time is 10 minutes, or until golden. It is not necessary to turn the rolls. At 9 minutes drizzle more olive oil or melted butter over the rolls, sprinkle some Malden flaked sea salt ( a little goes a long way) freshly grated parmesan and minced Italian parsley. Cook one more minute or until they are nice and golden brown. Remove the rolls from the air fryer and let cool just a few minutes before serving.


If you happen to have leftover the following day, and would like some rolls for lunch, use the reheat mode on your air fryer to reheat.

  1. I would like to make the crazy easy bread dough but I don’t have an air fryer. Can I make them in my convection oven? If so what temperature and time?

    • Marion, place the rolls on a parchment lined sheet pan and in a preheated convection oven at 375*. The cooking time will be a little longer 12 – 15 minutes. Hope you try them and enjoy!
