With our normal yeast pizza dough, I need two hours prep time for dinner. We don’t always have that kind of time with everything else going on, so this is a quick, easy pizza dough variation that doesn’t need time to rise. You can have hot, fresh, delicious pizza in a flash! No yeast, no dairy.
This is part of our 1,000 Food Experiments to create sustainable meals for our family and hopefully yours.
Ingredients ($2 total for the dough)
4 1/2 cups flour – $0.70
4 tsp baking powder – $0.06
1 tsp oregano – $0.28
1/3 cup olive oil – $0.60
1 1/2 cups water – free
Any pizza toppings you like
Directions for Easy Pizza Dough
1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Add the olive oil and water, and work into a dough. Add a bit more flour if it’s really sticky on your fingers. No rising required.
3. Press the dough out into a large circle on a parchment-lined pizza pan. You can also use any pan shape that you have on hand. Put your toppings on – we had tomato sauce, pineapple, sliced chicken apple sausage, and sauteed mushrooms with garlic and beet greens. The pizza was divided into segments for each of us, so everyone got to decorate the pizza with their own customizations.
Bake at 425F for 22 minutes. The crust edges will be nice and golden brown. Remove from the oven, cut with clean kitchen scissors, and serve hot. Enjoy!
