Did someone say pizza?  Well if you did and you’re looking for an EASY dough recipe, you’ve come to the right spot.  This no rise pizza dough is deliciously easy and fun to make. 

It adds an interesting twist of flavor vs. traditional pizza dough, which is equally yummy.  These cooked pizza dough’s are great to make for play dates, to serve as a lunch, snack or dinner.  You can make them ahead and store them or eat them fresh out of the pan; well, once they’ve cooled. 

No Rise Pizza Dough with Jodie Fitz

2 cups PICS all-purpose flour, unbleached

1 tablespoon PICS baking powder

1 teaspoon PICS sea salt

2 teaspoon PICS canola oil

1 ¼ cup of warm water

Crisco®

Saran Wrap

Measure the flour, baking powder and sea salt together into a bowl.  Using a fork, stir the ingredients together so that everything is evenly distributed.

Add in the two teaspoons of canola oil and stir it though the dry ingredient mixture.

Slowly pour in the warm water, you may not need to use it all so pour and stir until all of the ingredients come together.

Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a floured surface.  Knead the dough until it’s smooth and forms into a ball of pizza dough.  Sprinkle flour onto the dough as needed during the kneading process.  Note:  If it’s sticky, add flour lightly and continue to knead.

Lightly coat a bowl with the Crisco® using a napkin or paper towel.  Place the dough in the bowl and cover it for 30 minutes.

Once the dough has rested and is ready to cook, remove it from the bowl and divide it into 5 equal pieces by simply pulling it apart with your hands.  Place each piece of dough onto a floured surface and roll it out and stretch it with a combination of your hands and rolling pin to create five personal pan sized pizza dough’s.

Lightly coat a skillet style pan with 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil or canola oil and heat the pan over medium heat.  Carefully add the pizza dough’s to the pan.  Depending on the size of your pan you can add one or two at a time.  Cook one side until it’s golden brown and the dough starts to puff slightly, flip it over with heat safety tongues and cook the other side until it’s golden brown.

Pizza Yum: Once your dough is ready to use, heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Add your favorite toppings and baking until your cheese is melted and ready to eat!

Get Creative:  Like the picture above, use veggies to create a veggie face.  Or, like the picture below, create a baseball.  Use healthy ingredients and get creative!

Dough Storage: You can keep extra pizza dough’s in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.  Let the dough’s cool completely.  Separate them by placing parchment paper in between each of the dough’s.  Keep them in an airtight container, snap and seal style storage bag or covered tightly with plastic wrap.

Adding Flavor: When you cook your dough in the skillet, use a flavored olive oil.  I love the Tuscan flavored Saratoga Olive Oil that can be found at Price Chopper/Market 32 Supermarkets.
