No Yeast No Oven Pizza is an instant pizza that you can make home with your pantry ingredients even if you don’t have an oven. This thin crust pizza gets beautifully done in a tawa on stovetop.
As the recipe says, this pizza crust is made without yeast and the leavening agent used is Baking Powder and Baking Soda. I made this instant pizza in both oven and on stovetop and the crust works out best if you roll it into thin crust.
If you have noticed my 30 Minute Pizza dough, I had added oregano herb to the dough during knead. This gives an amazing flavour to the crust as well. So I followed the same
process of adding the herbs because in the recent check on the stocked ingredients, I found a whole bottle of herbs in the freezer that I had recently bought and completely forgot about it.
Can I use baking powder instead of yeast for pizza dough?
Today’s recipe is No Yeast, No Oven Pizza made with Baking Powder and Baking Soda. After the hurried 30 Minute Pizza, I had promised my boys for a meal and I decided making it for Saturday lunch will take care of it.
So I had set out to make 2 different recipes that would meet the requirement of no yeast, no oven and also no baking powder or soda. I made four different versions and baked the crust first so that I can quickly assemble when it was time for the lunch.
This No yeast No Oven Pizza was baked in Oven and also cooked on stovetop in Tawa. Its an Instant Pizza recipe and you can plan it and make it for a crowd as well! I am giving measurement for 1 medium Pizza recipe.
Does dough rise without yeast?
The dough made with baking powder and baking soda doesn’t rise as well in a dough made with yeast, however resting this dough for 10 minutes does make the dough soft and gets cooked well.

Baking this thin crust Pizza base in Oven:
Roll out thin pizza crust of about 1/4th thickness and bake on a greased pizza plate in a preheat oven at 185C for about 10 to 15 mins.
You can bake all pizza base ahead before assembling it for your meal.
No Oven, thin Pizza Crust on Stovetop in a pan
Grease your nonstick pan with butter and carefully place the pizza base. Prick with a fork all over on top and cover with a lid. Cook for 5 to7 mins.
Carefully flip to the other side and again cook with a lid. This again takes about 3 to 4 minutes. The entire stovetop cooking has to be done on a low flame.
Continue cooking with all the pizza bases, and assemble before serving the meal.
Ingredients Used to make No Yeast Pizza
In this easy No Yeast Pizza, I used Baking Powder and Baking Soda. I baked this in both Oven and on Stove top.
I used both Oregano and Rosemary in the dough and in the sauce.
Use warm water and warm milk for best results.
Since I was making the pizza for kids lunch, I decided to make the crust ahead and then assemble when it was ready for the meal.
So bake each crust for 10 to 15 mins and keep it ready.
Once assembled it only needs 5 mins to bake.
When cooking on Tawa, please remember to grease the tawa with butter and cook on low flame with lid on. Cook on both sides.
