Pizza Recipe 101 - Homemade pizza recipes
This is probably one of the fastest pizza dough recipes since there isn't the mess and time of yeast. This recipe yields a pie-like pizza dough which is very dense and filling. Use primarily for pizza emergencies when time is short.
Bread products use yeast or sour dough as rising or "leavening" agents. Baking soda (or baking powder) acts as a chemical leavening agent. Add an acid such as lemon juice to increase the rising. The acid in the lemon juice will react with the baking soda to produce gases which will make the dough to rise.
Easy No Yeast Pizza Dough stats
Servings:1 large pizza
Cook Time:20 Minutes
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 2 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
OR 1 3/8 teaspoon baking soda.
- 1 teaspoon salt (only if using baking powder)
- 1-2 tablespoon olive oil (2 makes less crunchy)
- 1 cup water
- lemon juice - same amount as baking soda or baking powder
Mix the dry ingredients.
Add the water and oil.
Stir until it forms a ball. If dough is stiff, add more water.
The dough will be soft, not sticky. Knead on a floured surface for 3-4 minutes.
Bake immediately at 400F, do not wait for the pizza dough to rise. It won't rise without the yeast anyway, and waiting will decrease the efficiency of the baking powder.
When the dough heats in the oven, the baking powder will release carbon dioxide gas and make the dough nice and airy, somewhat like yeast does.
Here's a variation:
No Yeast Pizza Dough 2
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2/3 cups milk
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- lemon juice - same amount as baking powder
Mix dry ingredients and add milk and oil.
Stir well until the dough begins to form a ball and pulls away from sides of bowl..
Knead dough by hand, while still in bowl, until smooth; then form a ball.
Press dough into an oiled baking sheet or pizza pan using your fingertips, leaving a thicker edge to hold fillings in.
Add toppings and bake for about 30 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and edges are golden brown.

- 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour (or white flour)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tsp. baking powder + 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2/3 cup carbonated water
