It’s true that I do try to keep yeast in the house. Sometimes, it just doesn’t work that way though, does it? Our family really loves pizza, so having an alternative recipe for homemade pizza dough is important.
Once you’ve combined the ingredients, check the dough. If it’s really sticky and loose, turn it out on a floured surface and begin working flour into it slowly until you have a soft and slightly springy texture. Roll it out and get it ready. Something I love to do (totally optional, but delicious) is to put a tablespoon of melted butter, a quarter teaspoon of oregano, and about a quarter cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
I pre-bake the crust before adding the sauce to help keep the center from getting soggy with that butter-cheese-oregano mixture on it. It takes around five minutes of baking before it’s ready for the toppings. After that it’s time for sauce, cheese, and other toppings. (Plus more Parmesan if that’s your thing. It’s definitely mine.)
No Yeast Pizza Dough Recipe
This delicious and chewy pizza dough is yeast free and full of flavor.
Pour water and oil into mixing bowl. Add sugar, salt, baking powder, and flour. Combine well. If the dough is sticky, turn it out onto a floured surface and slowly knead in flour until it becomes soft and slightly springy.
Roll the dough out and place it on your selected surface for baking. We use a pizza stone, but a cookie sheet with a silpat or foil will work as well. If you are using a pizza stone, feel free to use a couple tablespoons of cornmeal on the surface before you put down your dough to reduce sticking and add a little flavor.
Optional: If you are pre-baking your dough, cover it in the pre-bake toppings and stick it in the oven for around 5 minutes.
Put on your pizza toppings and bake until the cheese is melted and the top of the crust begins to turn a golden brown.
