Healthified Easy No-Yeast Thin Pizza Crust

Total Time

This is from Eat Better America, I didn't care for the toppings listed but this pizza crust sounded good and doesn't call for yeast. Can be easily made vegan with soymilk or a nut milk, or using water or broth in place of the milk.


  1. Heat oven to 400°F
  2. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and oil until soft dough forms. If dough is dry, stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons additional liquid.
  3. On lightly floured surface, knead dough 10 times. Shape dough into ball. Cover with bowl; let stand 10 minutes.
  4. Place dough on ungreased cookie sheet; flatten slightly. Roll out to 12-inch round pizza pan. Poke holes in the dough with a fork.
  5. Bake 8 minutes at 400°F, then put on the toppings and bake for another 20-25 minutes until they are cooked.

My husband and I loved this crust. Nice crispy, cracker-like outer edge with just a little chewiness in the middle. Next time, I'll use part whole wheat flour. This reminded me of the flatbread appetizers you get in restaurants. I'll use this recipe often!! REVISED 9/7/12: We just cannot get enough of this recipe!! I've probably made it 6 times in a month. Such a nice, crisp texture. I've used this to make steak flatbread with caramelized onions and feta cheese as well as traditional flatbread pizza. I'm so glad to have this recipe!

I loved the simplicity of a five ingredient crust and everyone in the family loved how the pizza turned out too!

Here in the tropics it's hard to find ready made stuff. Just made this, but I cheated a lot! Used half full fat milk, half water. I rolled it between 2 sheets of parchment paper and let it sit for 1/2 hour. I did not pre bake the crust! Then I brushed the dough with olive oil, added the sauce and toppings and baked it for 20 minutes at 485°F. We loved it! The crust was just right, soft but well cooked in the middle and crunchy on the outside. Next time I'll use full fat milk.
