  • 2 1/2 cups (350g) plain flour
  • 2 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 3/4-1 cup (170-225ml) water


  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl (flour, baking powder and salt). Add the oil and 3/4 cup (170ml) water then stir until it forms a ball.

  2. If dough is stiff, add more water. It should be soft, but not sticky.

  3. Knead on a floured surface for 3-4 minutes.

  4. Roll into the desired shape, add toppings, and bake at 200C for 15-25 minutes.

Yummy tasting pizza that my kids enjoyed. Ive made this recipe before and I knew that this makes for 2 people instead of 1. So I halved the recipe and made 4 mini pizzas the size of saucers (approx. 5") and put tomato purée, grated cheese and 2 sliced Pepperamis and popped them in the oven for 14 minutes. The kids had 2 for their lunch and thoroughly enjoyed them. This would also be great with ham and pineapple or just cheese. :)

Found this really easy and pretty good, i agree with others that it's quite dense but I think I'd simply roll the base thinner next time. I'll definitely make again as it's so simple and uses store cupboard staples

I created an account just so i can rate this recipe because i seriously loved it! I used a pizza pan (with holes) and parchment paper. And i popped it in the preheated oven for 2 mins before adding sauce and toppings just to make sure it wouldnt get doughy because i like thick crust.. Seriously delicious! Just make sure u give the oven time to preheat, usually when the oven says its reached temperature its not necessarily so.. Give it an extra 3 or so mins. And of course if u leave the oven door open for an eternity before putting in the pizza... Well u've just cooled it down so now ur temperature and timing will be off... Its not rocket science, just a little common sense ppl tend to not think of.. But hey, 5 mins at 100°F cooler makes a big difference.. Anyways, recipe was great, thanks a million! :)

THIS WAS SO DELICIOUS! really yummy. I used tomato puree, cheddar cheese, spinach( just a little ) and some orange pepper. we cooked ours in an Aga for 15 minutes. It was quite thick, but flavoursome. we used A LOT of puree and toppings so It would not taste like flour.

turned out great BUT you must roll them out thin and cook them on a pan that has holes in the bottom a pan without holes made my first pizza doughy. ALSO try adding some seasonings to make it not just taste like flour. i added 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp basil, 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning, and lastly 1/2 tsp anise TRUST ME all of them made it so great and herby you have have have to add more seasonings to it and it comes out great. Coming from some one who has thrown away way too many badly made pizza dough this one actually came out alright.

Did this tonight. Made 2 x 14 inch pizzas. Nobody detected it was yeast-free, and it was all gobbled up in short order. I've always been taught to heat the oven as hot as it will go with pizza, and cook for a shorter time. These were done in 7 minutes and were lovely.

Just found this, I am intolerant to yeast so really happy to have an alternative! Will give it a go asap.

Just tried this with kids but mixed a bit of dry basil in the dough to give it a bit of flavour...tastes really good

0 stars! Sorry but this is horrible I am really baffled by the good reviews. Just tasted like flour and didn't crisp up after been in the oven for 35 mins...and I made sure the bases were thin. I would advise ensuring you have yeast in the cupboard as I will from now on!

Really easy method and great if you don't have yeast! Always turns out lovely.

Hi! I've noticed that a lot of people are saying how dense this is. Do you think you could use self raising flour instead of plain flour? Or should I use part SR Flour and part plain flour? Would this make it less dense and more like traditional pizza? Or would it just ruin it.

Really easy to make and tasted great. We made for four people so quadrupled the mix, could have fed another four people - but the bases were thicker than we normally like. If we made again, would only double and quantity and make thinner!

Here's a tip from a pro gluten-free baker: If you wish for a gluten-free pizza choice, substitute the flour in this recipe with gluten free flour (rice, buckwheat, teff or a ready-brought blend) and add 1/4 teaspoon of xantham gum for a a non-crumbly dough. Enjoy!
