No-Yeast Pizza Dough

The remarkable thing about this easy pizza dough is that it contains no yeast -- and no yeast means no waiting. The pizza takes about 20 minutes from start to finish, and comes out fluffy and crisp on the bottom.

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

1 tablespoon coarse cornmeal 

1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder 

1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

1/4 teaspoon baking soda 

2 tablespoons olive oil 

Assorted pizza toppings such as sauce, shredded cheese, meat and vegetables, as desired 


  1. Position an oven rack about 8 inches from the broiler element and preheat the broiler.
  2. Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda in a food processor and pulse to combine. With the motor running, add 1/2 cup water and process, scraping down the sides as needed, until the flour is incorporated and the dough comes together to form a ball that is still slightly sticky.  
  3. Lightly flour a work surface and your hands. Form the dough into a neat ball between your hands and put on the work surface. Sprinkle with flour and roll into a 10-inch circle. 
  4. Spread the olive oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet to cover the bottom. Put the dough in the skillet and flip so both sides are coated in oil. Top with the desired toppings.  
  5. Put the skillet over high heat and cook for 5 minutes, then transfer to the boiler and cook until the cheese is melted and golden, about 4 minutes.
