yeast free pizza dough recipe

Pin It

joey has been very into making his own yeast-less pizza dough lately…and i’m not complaining! usually we use the pre-made whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe’s which is great in a pinch for a whole grain, quick and easy dinner option. it has yeast, which isn’t great to have a lot of, buuut, if you have around 5 to 10 extra minutes to spare and want to make your own yeast-free thin crust, here’s how to do it!

Vegan Yeast-less Pizza Dough recipe

Prep It:

  • – 1.5 cups flour (whole wheat or spelt)
  • –  a half cup of cornmeal (optional…use 2 cups of flour if not using cornmeal)
  • –  2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • – 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • – 3/4 cup of water
  • – rosemary or other herbs (optional)


  1.  preheat oven to 350 degrees. combine all of the ingredients, knead by hand until it becomes dough and doesnt stick to the sides of the bowl.
  2. grease a pan and press your dough into your ideal pizza shape. note: thin crust works best when there is no yeast since it is more dense. it cooks faster too!
  3. bake dough for about 5 to 10 minutes (depending on how thick it is)
  4. take the half-cooked dough out and put on your sauce and toppings … our faves include: kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, onions, pesto, tomato sauce (duh), Field Roast Italian Grain Sausage, kale, etc.
  5. bake dressed pizza for another 10 or so minutes until your toppings are cooked and your crust is browned. cool, slice and eat!

    Is this dough suppose to have water? How will it make the dough are we suppose to put the oil in instead of water or milk

    yes, you should definitely use water – about 3/4 of a cup should work. you can add more or less depending on dough consistency. it shouldn’t be slimy. thanks for your question and comment!

    I have made this recipe dozens of times. It’s excellent, and the cornmeal makes a huge difference. Thank you!
