Don’t spend hours making pizza dough! Instead, have all the pizza you could ever want, fast, with my 15-Minute Pizza Dough recipe (it’s Yeast-Free!)!
Hi Bold Bakers!
If you’re not familiar with yeasted dough, but you’re a pizza lover, then this recipe is for you! Yeasted dough can take time and that’s why I created this quick, 15 Minute Pizza Dough Recipe that uses NO yeast! This is a great dough to get you in the kitchen with friends and family and making pizza from scratch. I guarantee you that from scratch and to into the oven you will have this made in 15 minutes flat! Yeast or not, there really is nothing like homemade pizza, and now it’s something any baker of any level of experience can make.
Why is My Pizza Dough Very Sticky?
If you find your No-Yeast Pizza Dough to be a bit sticky, fear not, it just needs a bit more flour. This dough is not very finicky and it will tell you what it needs. If it’s wet and sticky add a bit of flour 1 tablespoon at a time, working it into the dough until it no longer sticks to the surface or your hands but is still soft and fluffy.
Why is Yeast-Free Pizza Dough Easier & Faster Than Yeasted Pizza Dough?
While yeast provides nice flavor it is not a must to create a beautiful homemade pizza. The dough’s raising agent is baking powder, which activates once you add the water, so there is no waiting around for proofing dough. It can be made and the whole pizza can be baked in a fraction of the time it takes to make yeasted pizza dough. This is a great recipe to make with the kids as it really is foolproof.
How to Store No-Yeast Pizza Dough
This dough can be covered and stored in an airtight container in the fridge or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. The idea is to let no air get to the dough as this can change its texture and flavor.
How Long Does No-Yeast Pizza Dough Last?
The raw pizza dough will last for up to 24 hours in the fridge. Once baked into pizza, the pizza can be covered and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Tips and Tricks to Making No-Yeast Pizza Dough:
- Freeze the raw pizza dough rolled and topped to make super-fast pizza whenever you want. Bake from frozen as normal.
- Add any dry fresh herb into your dough for extra flavor.
- Make 1 large 12-inch family size pizza
- Or divide the dough into 2 smaller pieces an roll out into 8 inch pizzas.

Don't spend hours making pizza dough! Instead, have all the pizza you could ever want, fast, with my 15-Minute Pizza Dough recipe (it's Yeast-Free!)!
- 2 1/2 cups (12 1/2oz/355g) all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (7oz/187g) water, roughly
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 5 minute pizza sauce
- mozzarella cheese , grated
- fresh oregano, or fresh herbs of your choice, for garnish
Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
Combine the water and oil in a separate jug or cup.
Slowly add the water mixture to the flour mixture, holding back a little in case you don't need it all.
Using a wooden spoon, or your hands, mix until the dough should be soft, but not sticky. Add a splash more water if your dough is too dry.
Lightly flour your work area and a rolling pin then roll dough into a 12-inch circle using your hands (to make 2 smaller pizzas, divide the dough into 2 and roll into 2 8 inch pizzas).
Transfer the pizza base to a nonstick pizza base or large baking tray. Spoon the 5 Minute Pizza Sauce over the pizza base. Cover generously with a layer of cheese, pepperoni, and fresh oregano.
Bake the pizza for 15 to 17 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice and enjoy!
