- “Noelle’s Tasty Tips” I have one fantastic tip on how not to get a soggy pizza!!
This is definitely not your typical pizza crust recipe. I came up with this out of necessity when I had my in-home daycare. We alway had our cooking class on Friday and I knew I needed to be prepared. However, one Friday I had a child help me get the supplies ready and we noticed, uh oh, No pizza dough! Oops, I forgot to buy it at the store. Time to start thinking fast. I had seven kids really excited about getting to make pizza all looking up at me with anticipation. This is when I got my idea to use my use my biscuit recipe as the crust. It was a hit with the kids! Phew got through that mess. But as they say, ‘through struggle brings growth’ and it turned out I came up with a new recipe that everyone seems to love. Works for me!
Now I would like to share with you the Easy Homemade Pizza Dough without yeast.
I have always loved a good vegetarian pizza but in the past every time I would make one the crust would come out soggy. I tried sauteing the vegetables before adding them but still no luck. Finally, I figured out through a lot of trial-and-error.
For this post, I have One Tasty Tip
What does the tip do? Not only will the salt provide flavor but will also dehydrate the vegetables of their liquids so you get a nice crisp crust.
Time to work on the crust.
I use my Cuisinart food processor for mixing the crust. The food processor is my favorite kitchen tool. If you don’t have a food processor you could use two butter knives or a pastry cutter.
Anyways, let’s add the flour, baking powder, salt, and blend for a few seconds. Next, add butter and mix to a fine crumble. Add the milk slowly making sure to use a spatula to scrape down the side of the food processors. Blend the dough until soft. If the dough is still sticky add more flour.
Once blended, place the dough on a floured cutting broad. Divide the dough in half and place one-half on a pizza peel with parchment paper. With a rolling pin roll the dough out and add the fresh basil along with the pizza sauce.
Time to add your toppings. But, before adding the veggies make sure to squeeze the liquid out. Then drizzle olive oil on top of the pizza before placing in the oven. The olive oil adds great color and flavor.
I like to use a pizza stone to cook my pizzas on but if you don’t have a pizza stone you can always use a cooking sheet.
Bake till cheese is melted and golden brown.
I really love to eat pizza and this is one of my favorite to make. The crust comes out so crispy and buttery. Who needs delivery when you have the Easy Homemade Pizza Dough without yeast.
