Why Is Yeast-Free Pizza Dough Easier And Faster Than Yeasted Pizza Dough?
Well I don’t want to single any one ingredient out or anything, but I guess have to here. Sorry yeast.
Without the yeast the dough is easier and faster.
2 Main Reasons No Yeast Pizza Dough Is Faster And Easier:
1. Don’t Have To Work With A Temperamental Ingredient.
Okay there I said it. Yeast I am talking about you here. You are a great ingredient, but no offense you kind of aren’t easy going.
To put it bluntly, yeast is one of the most temperamental ingredients, in my opinion.
If your water is too hot, you can kill it. If the water isn’t warm enough, then it won’t activate and do its job.
And then there is the wait time for rising. Yeast is great, but it takes extra work.
And it isn’t the friend of the busy mom. So let’s skip it!
2. No Yeast Pizza Dough Is Quicker.
When using yeast, you have to allow time for the dough to rise. That is not the case with no yeast pizza dough. Yay!
Make it and bake it.
I am not saying to ever not make a pizza dough recipe with yeast ever again. I love my Pizza Dough recipe that uses yeast, but there is a time and place for everything, emphasis on time.
Sometimes you just don’t have the time or patience to sit and let the dough rise. That is why this pizza dough recipe with no yeast is a life saver.
How Do I make Pizza Dough Without Yeast?
It is a lot like regular pizza dough, minus dealing with the yeast and waiting for dough to rise.
We still want the dough to rise. We just don’t have to wait. So I used another leavening agent, baking powder. This helps you get the consistency you want, the rise, the beautiful air bubbles that make it light and give it the right chew, but no waiting.
Not too crazy of a concept, right? Think about it. Some breads use yeast, while other breads use baking powder.

Tips and Tricks For Making No Yeast Pizza Dough:
This dough is easy but as always, here are some tips and tricks that I think you will find helpful. So take a moment and see what I have to say.
Tip 1: Make Sure Your Dough Is The Right Consistency.
Why Is My Pizza Dough Sticky?
You want your dough to be easy to work with. It should not be crumbly or sticky.
Although I have tried and tested this recipe, it is not uncommon when working with pizza dough that you may have to add a little more liquid or flour than what the recipe calls for. It’s just the nature of the beast.
Each time is a little bit different.
Follow the recipe and then add flour or liquid depending on the consistency, if needed.
If dough is sticky add a little more flour. Just a couple teaspoons at a time.
If dough is crumbly add more liquid, a couple teaspoons at at time.
Tip 2: Hands And Surface Should Be Floured.
When ready to roll out the dough, the surface should have a dusting of flour on it, as well as you hands. Otherwise dough will stick to the surface and your hands.
Tip 3: Busy? Make Pizza Dough Ahead Of Time.
Want pizza tomorrow night, but know you are going to be really busy? Take the pressure off and make the dough the night before.
Store pizza dough in an air tight container in the fridge.
How Long Does No-Yeast Pizza Dough Last? The raw pizza dough will last up to 24 hours in the fridge.
Once dough is baked into pizza, the pizza can be covered and stored in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
Or, you can always freeze your dough too.
Tip 4: Add Additional Seasonings Or Herbs To The Dough.
This dough can serve as a blank canvas to add you favorite flavors to. The recipe calls for garlic, but you can add other Italian spices, giving your dough a bolder flavor profile.
Have fun with it!
