Pizza is typically made with a simple yeast dough, similar to a basic bread recipe but with a small amount of fat added to help the dough stretch easily. This isn't difficult to make at home but, at times, you may need to use a recipe that doesn't require yeast. Perhaps there is no usable yeast in the house or a dinner guest is on a yeast-restricted diet. You can use baking-powder dough.as an alternative for making a pizza base.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Spray a deep-dish pizza pan with pan spray or oil it lightly. Preheat the oven to 205 degrees C (400F).

  2. 2

    Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add the first 125 ml (1/2 cup) of water and the oil or melted butter, and mix until the ingredients come together to form a dough. Use more water if it is dry and stiff, or more flour if it is wet and sticky.

  3. 3

    Turn the dough out on to a floured counter and knead for three to four minutes, until it is smooth and pliable. Let the dough rest for five minutes before continuing.

  4. 4

    Roll or pat the dough into a thin round large enough to line the deep pizza pan. Spread it with tomato sauce and add the toppings.

  5. 5

    Bake the pizza until it's done -- usually 20 to 25 minutes depending on the thickness of the toppings and cheese.
