Easy No-Yeast Pizza Dough Recipe (white and whole wheat)

Pizza is one of my family’s favorite foods. Americans purchase 350 slices every second, so it’s safe to assume that you love pizza, too!  These days, you’re probably preparing more pizza at home than you’re buying, and you may be having trouble finding yeast to make the crust. No problem. This easy no-yeast pizza dough recipe (which can be made with white or whole wheat flour) is ready in less than 10 minutes.

How To Make Easy No-Yeast Pizza Dough

In traditional pizza dough recipes, yeast plays a big role in helping the dough to rise. In this recipe, baking powder and Greek yogurt stand in for yeast.

Baking powder helps the dough to rise but it needs the acid from the Greek yogurt to do its job. Greek yogurt also helps to tenderize the pizza dough.

You must use Greek yogurt in this recipe because regular yogurt is too thin to form the dough. Use any type of plain Greek yogurt you like, such as fat-free or whole milk.

How to Make Easy No-Yeast Pizza Dough With Whole Wheat Flour

You can make this pizza dough recipe with 100% whole wheat flour instead of white flour. In fact, I prefer whole wheat flour to all-purpose for a few reasons.

Because the dough has Greek yogurt in it, it’s more moist than traditional pizza dough.  I use an equal amount of whole wheat flour and I find that the dough is easier to work with.

I also prefer whole wheat flour for the nutrition it offers. Whole wheat flour has more fiber than all-purpose, and it contains higher levels of certain nutrients, such as potassium, magnesium, and vitamin E. If you struggle to eat at least three servings of whole grains every day, whole wheat pizza dough is an easy, delicious way to include more.

However, don’t worry if you prefer preparing this recipe with all-purpose flour, which is enriched with B vitamins and iron.  Refined grains, such as all-purpose flour, are part of a balanced, healthy diet.

The dough is wetter than traditional pizza dough, so be sure to generously flour your work surface and rolling pin.

The crust will be thin, so be careful when you transfer it to the prepared baking sheet. It if rips, just put it back together. You can also divide up the dough and make personal pizzas, too.

Crimp the edges of the dough because it may spread a bit in the oven and you don’t want to lose any of your toppings.

Top the dough with pizza or marinara sauce (or not!) and whatever cheese and other toppings that  you have on hand. Low-moisture cheese works best with this dough, as it already has a fair amount of moisture in it.
