NO YEAST PIZZA DOUGH (easy, organic… & yummy)

Do you like your pizza “pan style”? Or do you, like me, prefer a somewhat thinner, crispier base that showcases the ingredients on top, as opposed to the dough underneath? If you like the latter (and are short of yeast!), this recipe might interest you! I am constantly on the look-out for yummy, simple, cook-from-scratch recipes, and I particularly love those with a short ingredients list that incorporates things I already have around the home. I never have yeast around the home! So, although slightly sceptical about the results of this kitchen experiment, I thought it could be worth a go. Yay for taking risks! It works! I “tested” it on my family the other night and hosted a very small get-together tonight (pre-Christmas crafting event for Operation Advent) where l provided these pizza bases and some yummy veggie toppings for the girls to design their own pizzas. By all accounts it seems that No Yeast Pizza Dough is a hit and a keeper 🙂

NO YEAST PIZZA DOUGH
Makes: 4 medium sized pizza bases (serving 4 people)

INGREDIENTS:

6 dl plain organic flour
2 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1.5 tsp garlic salt
3 tbsp organic olive oil
2-2,5 dl water

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix dry ingredients. Add 2 dl water and oil. Stir until it forms a ball. If dough is stiff, add more water.
  2. The dough will be soft, not sticky. Knead on a lightly floured surface for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 4 equal portions, roll each portion into a ball then roll out quite thinly with a rolling pin.
  4. Bake bases at 205°C for about 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven then add toppings, making sure to spread sauce right to the edge of the crust.
  6. Bake for approx. 15 minutes more or until done.

 

*Do not be concerned if, while baking the bases, they rise or bubble up a bit in places. They will settle just fine and become flat if you give them a little time to cool before adding toppings.
*Some people say the yeast-free pizza base is “biscuity” in texture. This is just fine by me as I like slightly crispier base.
*Recipe closely adapted by one from Terry H at Cooks.com

    • Aw, thank you :)! A mix of a bunch of veggie stuff we had around- bell peppers, mushrooms, onion, pineapple, red pesto, pizza sauce (tomato and herb), dried oregano, fresh basil, greek olives and baby plum tomatoes…

    • Well, I think it’s yummy 🙂 I modified the recipe based on reviews I read (and my own personal taste/feeling) and I am very happy with the result, as have been my friends and family who have tried a pizza with one of these bases. I know some people really prefer a different style of base, but if you accept it for what it is (it certainly is not going to have a “doughnutty” texture without yeast), then it’s really rather good… and very handy 🙂

    • This does seem quite light (to me, anyway)… like a combination of a more traditional pizza base and some kind of flat/pita bread… but a bit more biscuity (if that makes sense!). It works, in any case 😉 Mmmm scone based pizza sounds wonderful! 🙂

    • No worries, Lilee! Thank you 🙂 I should really start writing it out as I have had a few questions about dl/metric measurements. 1 dl = 1 deciliter… which is 100 ml (or a tenth of a liter 😉 ) It’s a standard metric measurement here. Roughly 2.5 deciliters is equivalent to one “US cup”… and is exactly the the same as 1 Aussie cup. I feel it is more accurate and easier to use metric measurements as “one cup” somewhere means something different elsewhere… and metric measurements are always the same 🙂

  1. So beautiful of a pizza and looks superb. Definitely making me hungry for pizza. And organic is even better 🙂

    • Thank you! Yes, we love organic! We were just talking about half an hour ago about how we tend not to look at price when grocery shopping now, but rather where the product is from (eg is it local/organic?) 🙂

    This is the most beautiful and the easiest pizza to make at home. Yeast free! Will try it with Gluten Free flour. Kids will love to make it too. Thank you Miss Marzipan!
    To your health!
