As of late, I have been craving pizza and not wanting to pay a dollar for a slice that I would then have to pick the cheese off and pray that there isn’t any dairy in the dough, so I gave up and found a good recipe for a yeast-free pizza. The entire point of yeast is so that the dough rises, but if you are okay with a flatbread pizza this is a great recipe to have in your back pocket.

The recipe is super simple:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup water

All you have to do is combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. And, if you knead by hand or use a food processor like I did, add the wet ingredients slowly until fully incorporated (the dough should form a nice little ball that is nearly not sticky at all if done in a food processor). If your dough is not forming, add very little water to it until it does. Once it’s kneaded, roll it out onto a baking or pizza pan and dress it without your desired sauce and toppings and stick it in an oven at least 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes, or until slightly crispy and the edge starts to brown.
