How to Make a No-yeast Pizza dough?

In a large mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Then add the milk or water and softened butter. Today I mixed this by hand, and it literally just takes 3 minutes to mix. This can be made with a mixer using a dough hook or a food processor. The mixing time is about 40 seconds if using one of those methods.

Roll out the dough by sprinkling a bit of flour onto the surface and the rolling pin. Remove the ball of dough from the bowl and tap into the flour on the top and bottom to help reduce the dough sticking to the rolling pin. Add a bit more flour to the surface as needed until the dough is no longer sticky.

Add the rolled-out dough to the pizza pan or a baking sheet. I like to use a smaller rolling pin to help roll out until the thickness is approximately ¼ inch.

Add your desired pizza sauce and toppings. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

What does Pizza Without Yeast Look Like and Taste Like?

The dough does not have the yeast flavor; however, it has just the right amount of chew and crunchy crust.

The crust was golden brown on the bottom and cooked through nicely with the toppings on the dough.

It is easy to pick up the pizza slices and hold it without the dough folding over. There was just enough structure without having too much or too little for holding the toppings.

The crust had all the great flavor that a delivered pizza would have.

Recipe Pro Tips:

Bread Flour. I used all purpose flour in this recipe, which yielded a beautiful crust. However, if you are looking for a bit more chew, then swap our all or part of the all-purpose flour for the bread flour.

Amp up the Flavor. Brush olive oil, or an infused oil and add a bit of garlic powder to the edge for better color and taste.

Add Dried Herbs. Add any dry fresh herb into your dough for extra flavor. Oregano and Dill are great choices. I would add approximately 1-2 teaspoons of the dried herb.

Make this Gluten Free. Gluten free flours such as rice flour work well for this recipe.

My Dough is Sticky. No worries, that just means it needs a bit more flour. Add about a tablespoon at a time until it is no longer sticky. I like to add that right to the floured surface and I pick it up as I am kneading it a minute or two. This dough is very forgiving and great for a beginner.
