I’ve been making pizza quite a bit recently and I always forget to pick up yeast when I run out. I love making breads etc so I use it often, which also means running out and forgetting to buy it often too. If you’re this mentally challenged too then I’m here to help! Easy pizza in 20 minutes, NO yeast necessary.

Mine doesn’t look that pretty hand stretched so you could roll it out a bit if you wanted to make it a better round or square shape (if that floats your boat) no judgements here. I add chilli oil to mine sometimes which also makes it pretty tasty. Some fresh basil also wouldn’t have gone amiss here but I worked with the bare minimum. This is perfect if you desperately need to eat but also need to shop and will give you the energy to fill your fridge with food again.

I wanted to make a nice dough without the yeast that you could make with things you already have at home. This makes one pizza as was just made for me but you can double it up or make as many as you like. I would say it makes a medium-ish sized pizza (4 generous slices) or roll into a purrito for instant gratification. Yum!

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did making it (and eating it). You can also check out my other recipes here.

    1. Have you not?! Well it?s honestly super easy so you should definitely give it a go. It?s fun to add all the toppings etc. That?s the best part. Well apart from a eating it of course.. ????You and the bf should give it a go one night. Aww thanks so much ??x

  1. I’ve never seen such a simple pizza base recipe! Simple recipes are right up my street (as is pizza!) so I’ll definitely try make this. I’ve been wanting to make my own pizzas for so long but can never find a good pre-made base to use so I’d love to create this one from scratch- plus all of the ingredients are in my cupboard which is a win! Thank you for sharing Siobhan! <3

    1. Aww yay I?m so happy you love it and it will be useful for you! Would love to see your pizza if you make it ? Yes! That?s what I was going for.. most people have this stuff at home and can easily throw it together. I?m gonna do a full pizza recipe I think at some point with some fancy toppings. My pleasure ??

        1. Yayyy! Can?t wait to see it and what you add as toppings. I want to be imaginative and not make the same old thing that everyone makes. But we?ll see.. x

    1. Aww thank you hun. That?s exactly the purpose of it! ?It?s good that you can make it without it. Plus it?s quicker.. you don?t have to wait for it to double in size etc. You definitely do! I love trying different cheeses. I will be making an epic pizza and other things with Purezza?s new mozzarella when they send me some. So excited for that! ?

    1. Aww that?s so sweet. I love that! Well when you get round to making any I would love to see. Thanks so much Lon ?xx

    1. Aww thank you. It?s really light which I love. I want to make a dessert pizza and add that on here. This is giving me inspiration ?

    1. Yeah a lot of people probably use the same ingredients as there?s not much to it. But a few people asked about it so thought I would upload. A nice easy one. Thank you! ?

    1. I?ve used milk and made it a little differently before but it?s made it drier.. I like how light this one is. So much easier! I do both but sometimes I want to make it quickly or don?t have yeast. It?s great to be able to do it either way ?x

    1. Aww thanks Dana. Just means you don?t have to worry about having it and letting it rest etc. Very kid friendly ? Thank you! X
