trying to make homemade pizza to impress the boyfriend... but?!

Question: Trying to make homemade pizza to impress the boyfriend... but?
i need dried yeast, i havent got any :/ is there another alternative i can use :)


Just know that without yeast you wont have as nice of a crust. It will be thin and crispy, most likely. I have tried yeast-free crusts before and was a bit disappointed in that. A good technique to distract from that was to sprinkle a mix of italian herbs over the baking sheet before putting the dough on it. It added a nice taste and so the texture mattered less.

I did a look around for you to see if any better looking recipes were out there and this one seems promising:…

It requires these:
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano (or Italian herb mix)
1/8 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1 egg
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp olive oil (reserved)
cornmeal (optional)

Good luck! I hope you do impress but I'm sure he'll appreciate it. :)

No worries, you can make a yeast free pizza crust.
I like this recipe

2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2/3 c. water
1/4 c. vegetable oil

Mix flour, salt, baking powder and water. Knead on floured counter just until workable and spreadable, about 2 minutes.

Use as normal

if you go on bbc website and look at lorrane pascal
she has a no yeast needed bread you can you that
but roll the dough very thin

tried it

Obviously you need yeast for the dough to rise
You could try a basic scone recipe instead for the dough base

i use flour tortillas for the is simple and good.

What about buying pre-made dough instead?
