When making homemade pizza dough, you can substitute baking powder for yeast if you desire. The baking powder will allow the dough to rise and is a handy alternative if you or a family member is allergic to yeast. Top the yeast-free pizza dough with all of your favorite ingredients, such as mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, pepperoni or sausage, to create a customized treat.
Combine bread flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
Pour water and olive oil into the mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon until the dough begins to form into a ball. Add a little more water if the dough is too sticky.
Sprinkle flour onto your work surface.
Place the soft ball of dough onto the flour and knead it for 3 minutes. Roll out or spread the dough onto a nonstick baking sheet. Add sauce and your favorite toppings. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, or until it is lightly browned.
