Yeast Free Pizza Dough, Award and Winner!

Goodness, I have a lot to chat about today. Another early morning at our house - little man woke me up (again) at 5 a.m. making bubble/spitting sounds. It's his favorite thing to do these days. Thank god, he'll just lay there and play till after 6 a.m. when I finally can roll out of bed. His internal timeclock really needs to get adjusted.

Today I'm sharing with you a yeast free pizza dough, that is so easy, an award I received by two different bloggers and a contest I won!

First off - pizza. As you know this is my all-time favorite food. I can eat it anyway - thin crust, thick crust, Chicago style, stuffed, whatever toppings on hand, you name it, I'll eat it. I got this recipe from my friend and old co-worker, Megan (Hey, girl!). Sadly, this is the first time I tried it and she gave it to me, like 3 years ago. For those of you that are afraid of yeast, try this.

Yeast Free Pizza Dough
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
2 t. baking powder
2/3 c. water
1/4 c. vegetable oil
*I added some garlic salt to the crust mixture, to give it some extra flavor*

Mix flour, salt, baking powder and water. Knead on floured counter just until workable and spreadable, about 2 minutes. Put on pizza pan or stone, with fingers spread vegetable oil on crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 5 min. Take out, add sauce and toppings and bake an additional 15 minutes until cheese is bubbly and brown. I opted for this to just be a cheese pizza, of parmesan and mozzarella, didn't want to ruin a good thing!

Laura and Christina, nominated me for a Creative Blogger Award. Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.
5. Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.

Here I go, do you know which one is the TRUTH?

1. I have one blue eye and one green eye.
2. Someday I'd like to go sky diving.
3. I have a tattoo on my left hip of my husband's name.
4. I was on the state championship golf team my junior year of high school.
5. I have never smoked a cigarette in my life.
6. I can sing the ABC's backwards.

I'm sharing this fun game with:

And lastly, look what I won!

Ashley, from Food, Fotos and Fun, recently held a giveaway for ZEVIA sodas and/or pop. What do you call it, soda or pop?

I won a whole mixed case! I'm not a pop drinker, but my husband is, and recently he has tried giving it up (he's currently drinking a LOT of iced tea). So this will be a great thing for him! ZEVIA contains none of the chemically processed artificial sugar substitutes, artificial flavors or artificial colors found in other diet sodas. ZEVIA is all-natural, has zero calories, zero net carbs, zero fat, and little or no sodium (depending on flavor)."

Doesn't hurt to try it right? Especially when it is FREE.

Don't forget to pick out my TRUTH!

  10. Interesting pizza dough! One trick is if you let it sit for about 30 minutes, the baking powder will have a chance to work and you'll be rewarded with a crispy, yet chewy crust.

    You and I could be sisters - I heart pizza so much too!! I am actually going to try a buffalo chicken pizza on Friday - cannot wait!

    Love your Zevia loot - still haven't found it by me, but I haven't looked that hard either.

  11. Some of you have gotten my Truth right but I won't reveal until tomorrow!

    Great idea about letting the dough set for 30 min. I will try that for sure! I plan on trying a barbecue chicken pizza later this week:)

  21. So excited that I found your blog. I have a yeast allergy in a yeast loving family. It will be nice to be able to eat the same food as the family without getting sick after. Thanks for sharing.

  22. The pizza dough retains a distinct taste even without the yeast.

  23. I didn't even know that it's possible. Thanks a lot for sharing that recipe. It looks easy to make one.

  24. Yeast free dough hooray! But putting cheese on it defeats the purpose since cheeses are prohibited for a yeast free, candida free diet.
    Correct me if I'm wrong.

  25. Hi Chris, you may very well be right, I'm not that familiar with a yeast free diet. I was most attracted to this recipe more for the simplicity of it, as you didn't have to wait for the dough to rise.

    I made this tonight. I have no exp with dough, so here's the question: i used wheat flour, and it seemed to be dry after mixing in the water. does wheat require more water than white flour?

    still, it was pretty good, and fun to make.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi Matt! I have never tried this recipe with wheat flour....but wheat flour does have a completely different texture than white flour, I'm imagining that is why it was a little dry. Maybe try adding a little more oil to the dough?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I used LIGHT spelt flour to make this crust. I did need to use a bit more flour. Added rosemary and garlic powder. Came out lovely, not that different in texture from white flour. Regular spelt is a bit heavy - I haven't tried it. I really enjoyed this healthier, yeast-free alternative. Thank you!!

  29. can you freeze this dough?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have never froze this dough...so I'm not sure if it would hold up or not. Sorry!
