4 ingredient yogurt pizza dough

Please help me find this pizza dough recipe.

(Ms. Vegetable has a question)
At one point, less than a year ago, I found a pizza dough recipe with 4 ingredients:
whole wheat flour
butter
yogurt
??

I suspect it was on a blog. I suspect it was for pizza pockets. I can't find it, I don't know the last ingredient, and I don't know the proportions.

Anybody? My google-blog-fu has failed me.

Pizza doughs are typically risen doughs, so could the last ingredient be something as simple as yeast?

It was a fast dough, no rising. So it could be yeast, but I don't know.

There seem to be several variations out there but this one might be it, as it is for pizza pockets:

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teasoon sea salt
1 cup melted butter
1 cup plain yogurt

If it's leavened (not a brick of flour) and has no yeast (which would require a rising time), then you're pretty much left with baking soda/powder. I think soda reacts on heating and powder immediately, or the other way around.

Powder reacts on heat, soda reacts on acid (which is what yogurt will be).

Powder reacts on heat, soda reacts on acid (which is what yogurt will be).

Close, Baking powder is basically baking soda with an acid (like cream of tartar) included. Double acting baking powder has some extra stuff, so it reacts when mixed with a liquid, and when exposed to heat.

Anyway, there's enough liquid from the yogurt and the butter to give some lightness to the dough, and since the doughs rolled out thin, you don't need much.

I just wanted to add that this actually looks pretty much the same as my piroshki dough, I use regular flour and you can use sour cream instead of yogurt (depending on what you have on hand. It's nice to work with, and using pizza fillings is a good idea. Left over chicken is also great. You just chop them fine or put them in a food processor with some sauteed onions and maybe bell pepper. If you want to go the veggie route, just replace the chicken with mushrooms (for that matter, you could just add the mushrooms to the chicken). The point is, this works well with lots of yummy things inside, not just tomato sauce.
