Easy Yeast Free Pizza Base

My kids all love pizza but having seen how much fat & salt there is in a shop bought pizza I prefer to make my own – it’s also great fun to let the kids choose their own healthy toppings & ‘decorate’ their dinner!

The main problem with traditional pizza bases is that they contain yeast which means that you need to allow time for the yeast to work, which I just don’t have time for most days – this recipe can be made in just a few minutes & makes either a large pizza for 2 adults or 4 child sized ones!



2 cups Plain Flour (or 1 cup Plain & 1 Cup Wholemeal)

1/2 teaspoon Salt

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

2/3 cup warm water (you may need a little more)

Olive Oil


Mix dry ingredients together, add water & 1 tablespoon Olive Oil & mix well.  Knead for 2-3 mins adding a little more water if needed.

Roll out thinly & rub a little olive oil over both sides of the base to prevent it from sticking to the baking tray.

Add tomato sauce & toppings.

Bake at 180 degrees C for approximately 20 minutes.
