About this No Yeast Pizza Dough

After getting many requests for a good is pizza dough recipe without yeast, I started to experiment with various combinations of flour, baking soda and other basic ingredients.

After some trials, I came upon the recipe shared here and it will give you an excellent pizza crust.

In this post I am sharing only the pizza dough recipe. This dough can be used when making your pizza in the oven or on the stovetop in a skillet (or tawa).

For a great stovetop pizza recipe, check Making Pizza without Oven. This is a tasty way to make a pizza if you don’t have an oven, or if it’s a hot summer day and you don’t want to use the oven, or even while camping!

An All-purpose flour Pizza Dough

This recipe uses all-purpose flour. I always try to make recipes with whole wheat flour if possible as it is a healthier option, however sometimes I find that it just doesn’t give the best taste or texture.

With this pizza dough, I tried making it with wheat flour and even with half whole wheat flour & half all-purpose flour.

The pizza made with whole wheat flour, tasted more like a roti pizza – crisp and thick flatbread topped with pizza sauce, veggies and cheese.

For this reason, as well as better taste and texture, I recommend using all-purpose flour when making pizza dough without using yeast.

However, if you want to use whole wheat flour, I recommend using a recipe with yeast, such as Whole Wheat Pizza Dough.

Yet if you absolutely want to use whole wheat flour with this no yeast recipe, feel free – it will still make a nice pizza.

9. Keep on kneading until you get a soft and smooth dough. Add water in parts. I added ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons water. Be sure to knead very thoroughly. Knead at least for 10 to 12 minutes.

10. The dough should become elastic and stretchable. Take a portion and stretch it. It should not break.

11. The pizza dough should not be sticky but should be tacky. Tacky means that when you press the dough, it leaves your fingers or peels from it, without any dough sticking to your fingers. Obviously, if the dough is sticky, it will stick to your fingers. In case the dough becomes sticky, then add some more flour and knead again.

12. Rub some olive oil all over the dough and keep covered in a bowl. Allow the dough to leaven for 2 to 2:30 hours.

13. Below is the dough after 2 hours. Punch one of your fingers in the dough and the depression should give away. Then you know it is ready.

14. Before making the pizza, knead the dough again.

15. If not using immediately, then wrap the pizza dough tightly in a cling film or an aluminum foil or keep it covered in a closed container in the fridge. You can also freeze the pizza dough and it will stay good for a couple of months.

  1. Looks good! Am going to try this out this evening. Just wanted to check how long will the kneaded dough last in a fridge? Also if frozen what is the thawing process? Thanks

    1. in the fridge good enough for 3 to 4 days. in the freezer for more than a month. thawing has to done at room temperature. remove the dough an hour or 45 minutes before you begin to bake. time taken to thaw will also depend on the temperature in your city.

  2. Thanks for the recipe. Yesterday I made a whole wheat pizza for my toddler, but the base literally tasted like baati. I didn’t like it much, but she loved it ???? I will try this recipe today. Thanks5 stars

    1. thanks and if possible do let me know how the recipe goes for you. happy cooking.

  3. I am a lover of your recepies. Whatever new food I try, yours going to be my guide. I installed you app. But I am not able to find that in playstore nowadays. What happened?

    1. Thanks Sesha for your kind words. About the app, we have deleted it as we could not manage it well.

  4. Hi, so in the thing that says recipe notes you said to add vinegar instead of lemon juice so do i add the vinegar just at the end or do i substitute the lemon juice all together for the recipe?? i dont really know how to word it but i hope you understand what im asking lol.

    1. substitute vinegar entirely if not using lemon juice. add vinegar after adding olive oil to the flour.

    1. you can use wheat flour. you will require to add some more water if using whole wheat flour.

    1. thanks divya for sharing this. i had made 5 small to medium sized pizza with this. i had made not thin crust but medium-thin.

  5. Love your recipes, so keen to try this in the oven.
    Is this needed for one small pizza or should I half the qty?

    1. thanks JK. this recipe will yield 5 to 6 small pizzas. you can halve the quantity to get 2 to 3 small pizzas.

    1. if you knead very well, then the dough will turn elastic. kneading is important. if the dough looks dry, then you can add some more water, but do not add too much water. just add 1 to 2 teaspoons water in parts and knead.

  6. thanks a lot for this recipe. will make and let u know how it turns out. please share a no yeast bread recipe too in convection oven. I have tried making the no yeast soda breads from many websites but all were huge failures. 🙁 your recipes have always been a huge success for me. !!5 stars

    1. thank you chandni. i will add the no yeast bread. even i have made no yeast soda bread twice, but i did not like it.

    1. vidya, you can try with jowar, maize flour, amaranth or bajra flour. even rice flour will work. since both rice, amaranth, maize flour, bajra and jowar are light textured flours, you will get good results. however do note that bajra is heaty and warming, so good in winters. also use gluten free baking powder. to make the dough, add boiling hot water in the flour. mix with a spoon and cover the bowl. when the dough becomes warm, then knead it. to roll either pat the dough with your hands or use a ziplock bag.

      you can check this post – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/jowar-roti-recipe-jowar-bhakri/

      1. Thank you very much for this detailed recipe of gf pizza.I ll surely try this one Dassanna5 stars

        1. welcome vidya. do let me know how it turns out. but do not overcook the jowar or bajra rotis as then they will become dense and chewy.

  7. another alternative is to 1 cup maida, 1/2tsp sugar, salt, 2 tbsp curd and 1/4 tsp baking soda, 2 tbsp olive oil. knead with1/3 cup water. rest for 45 mins – 1 hour. works ectremely well for me

    1. thanks divya for sharing this recipe. will help the readers, if they want to make a small batch.
