Yeast Free Pizza Dough Recipe

You’ll only need five basic ingredients for this simple pizza dough: 

  • all-purpose flour (or make it healthier by mixing spelt flour and all-purpose flour)
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • olive oil
  • water

Instead of the yeast, we’re using baking powder to add a bit of fluffiness to the crust.

Step 1: Combine flour, baking powder, and salt.

Step 2: Add olive oil and water.

Step 3: Combine with a spoon.

Step 4: Knead until it’s a smooth dough. You might have to add a bit more water if it’s too crumbly or a bit more of the flour if it’s sticky.
