This was SUCH a fun and delicious recipe to make! It turned otu absolutely amazing, and the fact that it tasted to good and was so much healthier than store bought pizza made it worth it.
Side note: If you make this, I 100% recommend playing this song while cooking
Now that we’ve got this recipe down, I can totally see us making a few of these at once, and storing them in the freezer for days we don’t want to cook!
Homemade anything is always amazing, and much healthier. So if you’re craving pizza but feel guilty ordering, try this recipe! It’s actually so easy, and the yeast-free dough turned out totally fine!
Step 1: Make the dough
We had looked up a ton of different recipes that contained yeast and they honestly intimated us. They seemed so complicated, and I’m not even sure yeast is all that great for you anyway. So we ended up kind of combining some yeast-free pizza dough recipes into our own concoction, and it turned out great!
Something we totally though made the dough was adding fresh herbs from out garden into it! You could actually see the small green flakes in it, and it totally added a delicious subtle flavor to it.
It’s also important to use good, high-quality olive oil, as the olive oil also adds flavor to the dough. Same with the salt. If you have sea salt or pink Himalayan salt, that’d probably be a bit more flavorful than your typical table salt.
Homemade No-Yeast Pizza Dough
- 2.5 cups Flour
- 3 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 3/4 cup + 2 tbsp Water
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tbsp Fresh Oregano
- 1 tbsp Fresh Parsley
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate cup, mix the water and oil
Slowly add the water mixture to the dry ingredients. Add a little bit at a time in case you don’t need all of the liquid.
If the dough appears too dry and crumbly, add more water+olive oil. The dough should be slightly sticky, but not too sticky.
On a clean, floured surface, knead the dough for atleast 10 minutes
Wrap the dough in saran wrap, and store in the fridge for atleast 1 hour.
Remove the dough and roll out into a circle Make sure you use your fingers to create a thicker, raised edge for the crust.
Before adding any toppings, brush the crust with olive oil
Add toppings, and cook on 410°F for 20 minutes, or until the crust and cheese look cooked.
Step 2: Make the Sauce
I was actually shocked at how easy the sauce was. I initally started to combine the ingredients over heat on a pan, then realized that was NOT what I was suppose to do. When you spread the sauce onto the dough, you don’t want it to be warm and runny. You want it to be cold and thick so it spreads and stays well.
I also believe that adding the fresh herbs to the sauce made a huge difference! The sauce was absolutely delicious! We had some leftover so we stored it in a ziplock in the freezer for next time!
Easy, Homemade Pizza Sauce
- 15 oz tomato sauce (one 15 oz can)
- 6 oz tomato paste (one 6 oz can)
- 1 tbsp fresh oregano
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley
- 1 tsp italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tbsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tsp coconut sugar
In a medium bowl, combine the tomato sauce and tomato paste, and whisk well until all lumps from paste are gone.
Add teh rest of the ingredients (oregano, italian seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, garlic salt, pepper and sugar) and mis well!
Add to pizza dough! (you can store any remaining sauce in the freezer!)
Step 3: Add the Toppings
We topped our pizza with:
- Freshly shredded parmesan
- Freshly shredded mozzarella
- Fresh basil
- Red onions
- Spinach (placed underneath the cheese)
The Parmesan added an amazing salty flavor, and mozzarella adds the subtly cheesy-ness which is amazing. We also thought putting the spinach underneath the cheese was good because the leaves are kind of big so they kind of take over the toppings on top.
You can add whatever toppings you’d like, but this was what we did this time and it was incredible. Such an easy and fun recipe to make, I definitely recommend giving it a try!
