Forget hours of dough-rising! This “Flash Pizza” recipe from Food Wishes delivers a crispy, chewy pizza in under 10 minutes, thanks to a genius no-rise dough. It’s so simple, you might just fool your friends into thinking you’re a pizzaiolo pro!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Cornmeal (for dusting)
  • Pizza sauce of your choice
  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Additional toppings of your choice (pepperoni, olives, onions, etc.)
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Prep your pan: Preheat your oven to 500°F (260°C) and generously coat a sheet pan with cornmeal. This will give your pizza a nice, crispy bottom.
  2. Mix your magic dough: In a large bowl, whisk together the self-rising flour, sugar, and Parmesan cheese. Drizzle in the olive oil and yogurt, mixing until you have a shaggy, slightly sticky dough. Don’t overmix!
  3. Knead for texture: Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes until smooth and elastic. This step develops the gluten for a satisfying chew.
  4. Shape and top your masterpiece: Divide the dough in half and roll one half into a thin oval shape on a lightly floured surface. Aim for about 1/4-inch thickness. Transfer it to your prepared sheet pan.
  5. Get saucy and cheesy: Spread your favorite pizza sauce over the dough, leaving a small border. Top generously with mozzarella cheese and your chosen toppings. Drizzle with a touch of extra virgin olive oil for extra flavor.
  6. Flash-bake to pizza heaven: Pop your pizza in the preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
  7. Slice and savor: Let the pizza cool for a few minutes before slicing and digging in. Enjoy your quick and delicious homemade pizza!

Tips:

  • Feel free to experiment with different flours! Whole wheat or spelt can add a nice nutty flavor.
  • Don’t have Greek yogurt? Substitute with buttermilk for a similar tangy touch.
  • Get creative with your toppings! Leftover veggies, grilled chicken, or even a drizzle of pesto can make this pizza your own.
  • This dough can also be used to make calzones or flatbreads. Just get creative with the shaping and fillings!
