No-Yeast Pizza Dough with Whole Wheat

Long name for a simple recipe.


Amidst my awkward we're-moving-so-use-up-what-we-have-in-our-cupboards stage a couple weeks ago, I found myself with all of the essential pizza ingredients...except for yeast.
My favorite whole-wheat pizza crust recipe calls for yeast, but I didn't have time to run to the store.

So, after googling around a bit, I found a recipe on cooks.com and adapted it to my liking.
This recipe provides more of a soft, bread-y crust, rather than a thinner, crispier crust.


Given the choice, I would choose my yeast recipe over this, BUT, if I find myself in another
pizza-craving, hopeless, yeast-less circumstance,
this will be my go-to!

Make this crust for a yummy Zucchini Pesto Pizza!

(If you're more of a soft-crust fan, this may end up being your favorite.  To each his own.:)
*This is my most popular recipe!  Let me know how you like it!

No Yeast Pizza Dough with Whole Wheat
Makes 1 pizza crust
Inspired by Cooks.com

1 1/2 cups regular whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour
1 tsp garlic salt
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 400. Combine all ingredients together in a bowl and knead by hand in bowl for about 2 minutes. Place onto baking sheet and press out into desired shape (thinner crust works better for this recipe). Bake for 5-10 minutes (depending on how thick it is). Take it out, add sauce and toppings, then bake for another 8-10 minutes, or until toppings are cooked and edges of crust are lightly browned.

I included a link on my blog to this post just a few days ago - I loved the soft crust. Thank you for this!

I tried making this yesterday, my boyfriend stole a slice of my pizza and thought I bought the pizza dough from the bakery! Thanks!

Ok. I did make this exactly the way the directions say, and you're right, this is more of a soft-crust pizza. I think next time I'll add in some italian seasonings and MORE garlic (we LOVE garlic)and I think it could stand to be baked longer than is mentioned. maybe my oven sucks, i don't know, but i think longer cooking. i baked one a little longer than the other one and I got crispier crust, which we really liked a lot.

BTW, I was thinking the dough should be elastic and more, I dunno, 'doughy' but since its whole wheat it never really gets elastic. Just thought I would mention that for others :)

Made this last night, and it was super quick and easy (without the yeast). Wondering if I didn't pre-bake long enough or if it just doest get very crispy on the bottom.

Made this last night, and my husband and I thought it tasted great! So easy with no yeast. He would've preferred more garlic in the crust. Maybe I didn't pre-bake long enough - has anyone else had issues with getting the crust crispy on the bottom?

Hi! I just want to say I made your crust and it was delicious! I came across the same problem (no yeast)and this solved everything.

I made my own pizza recipe using your crust and gave you credit on my blog, craveyourhealth.com!

I love your site!

I make this and use guacamole or hummus sauce instead of tomato a lot healthier
If you don't want to eat too many nightshades.

Perfecto, perfection! Just what I needed. I planned my menu for the month. Prepared a freezer full of food. Today's menu states "Pizza". The kids are excited. And then I remember... I forgot to pre-make the pizza crust! Ahhh! Hoping I'd get a hit, I searched Google for a job yeast crust (to save time) and your post was the first result on the list. I really hope this works. I'm going to try and split the dough in half for a thinner crust, skip the pre-baking and bake it with the toppings for slightly longer. Fingers crossed... :^)
