No Rise Pizza Crust

No Rise Pizza Crust

I promise you, this recipe for a no rise crust is on rotation at least on a monthly basis. My children keep me super busy with Girl Scouts, tutoring, SAT prep, caddy training and simply just being teens, so sometimes a nicely planned cooked dinner is not going to happen. Let’s keep it real. The dough for this pizza doesn’t require rising you so you can have this ready in less than 10 minutes. You can’t even get regular delivery in 10 minutes!

To make is a little healthier, I put the vegetables in the sauce because my teens just like plain cheese <insert eye roll>. Feel free to add all of the veggies you like for your version.


  • 1 1/4 ounce package dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 1 ⁄2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a medium bowl and add rest of ingredients.
  2. Beat vigorously 20 strokes and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Press dough onto greased 11x17" baking sheet and add topping ingredients of your choice.
  4. Bake at 425° for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.

Note: I didn’t like how my dough was looking so I did add a splash of olive oil and 2 splashes of warm water. LOL! I’m sorry I’m becoming my grandmother.

If you want a crunchier crust you can try leaving it in a little longer. This crust is on the chewier side but we don’t mind it at all.

Cheers to those quick dinners!
