Pizza night with yeast-free pizza dough

Hello all!

How’s everyone doing?? I am calling today’s recipe use-what-you-got pizza! Because really that’s how it came together. I didn’t have all the traditional ingredients, so this is NOT your traditional pizza, but it is oh-so-yummy! Let’s start!

pizza dough

Yeast-free pizza dough

  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp evoo
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  1. Preheat oven to 400F and grease pizza pan.
  2. Whisk flours, baking powders and salt in a large bowl.
  3. In a smaller bowl mix water and evoo. Slowly add water mixture to flour mixture until the dough is formed into a ball. If you need more water, be sure to add it a tablespoon at a time.
  4. Knead the dough a few times while in the bowl and spread it on the prepared pizza pan.
  5. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Pizza toppings

  • 1/2 lb of ground beef
  • 1 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 basil cube (frozen basil – a liitle bit smaller than an ice cube)
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Dash of oregano
  • Dash of aged red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock or water
  • 1/4 cup salsa sauce
  • Shredded cheese for sprinkling on top (I only had the cheddar marble kind)
  1. Cook ground meat on medium heat until nicely browned. Stir frequently.
  2. Add in onions, green pepper, and garlic. Cook covered until the vegetables are soft (a few minutes).
  3. Add in tomato paste, basil, dash of salt, black pepper, oregano, vinegar, and chicken stock or water. Mix everything in and reduce heat to simmer and cover for 7 to 10 minutes.
  4. Add in salsa, cover and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Taste and adjust salt if needed.

Now, you’re ready to put your pizza together! Just toss the toppings on top of the dough, sprinkle more oregano if you wish, some cheese, and pop it back in the oven for another 10 minutes or until the cheese melts.

I hope you enjoy your pizza as much as we did! The smell was amazing!! I didn’t even get a chance to take a final product shot. My husband loved it and I am pleased. I really enjoyed the corn flour taste in the pizza dough; it tasted like Mexican tortillas. It was yummy. I will definitely be making this pizza again. The husband did request a fluffier dough…gotta figure that one out!

I hope this post inspires you to use ingredients you already have at home. If you try this recipe out please let me know. Thanks so much for stopping by!
