To make a no-yeast pizza, you will need:

  • Plain flour, 300 grams
  • Baking soda, two teaspoons
  • Water, 150 ml
  • Olive oil, one tablespoon
  • Salt, one teaspoon


1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead into a ball on a worktop sprinkled with flour. If too hard, add more water. The consistency should be soft and bouncy, not sticky.

2. After kneading for about three minutes, roll out with a rolling pin. Add toppings of your choice – a simple passata and grated mozzarella (or even cheddar) will please the kids, and bake for around eight minutes. 

Tip: If you are making very thin, Romana-style pizza, separate the dough into two halves and bake separately.

Can you freeze no-yeast pizza dough?

You can! Once your dough has risen, split into balls – each one large enough to make a single pizza base – wrap in cling film and store in the freezer for up to three months. This is a great option if you're looking for easy, midweek meals.
