No Rise Pizza Dough Recipe

Stack of cooked no rise pizza dough made with tuscan herb olive oil.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, unbleached (plus extra)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ¼ cup warm water
  • Crisco
  • Saran Wrap
  • Olive oil


Measure the flour, baking powder and sea salt into a bowl. Stir the dry ingredients together with a fork so that the ingredients are mixed and evenly distributed.

Continuing to stir with a fork, add in the 2 teaspoons of canola oil. Stir well.

SLOWLY add the warm water to the mixture, stirring as you add the water. DO NOT add it all at once, only use as much as you need. You want to add just enough to wet the ingredients so that they stick together.

Remove the dough from the bowl and place it onto a flour covered surface. Knead the bread until it has formed into a ball of pizza dough.

Grease a bowl with a light coating of crisco. Place the dough in it, cover it with saran wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes. It will not rise.

Once it has rested for 30 minutes, divide the dough into five to six separate, but somewhat equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a mini sized pan pizza on a flour surface, you may have to dust the top of the dough with flour before you roll it out.

Add a very light layer of olive oil to an electric skillet or skillet style pan on a stove top, heat the pan and the oil. Add one or two mini pizzas to the pan, whatever fits. Cook one side until it's golden brown, flip and cook the other side.

More on making this No Rise Pizza Dough Recipe

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.

Cooking with Kids:  Every recipe has steps and life skills to focus on when cooking with kids.  Here are a few to focus on when making this recipe…

  • Measuring ingredients

  • Following directions
  • Stove top or skillet safety
