Homemade pizza has never been easier to make. This 15 minute no yeast pizza dough is on our weekly meal rotation. It only takes a minimum of 2 ingredients and this will surely be a family favorite!
As parents we are always looking for ways to sneak veggies into our kids’ meals. Cauliflower crust pizza sounds like a wonderful way to do this, but if you’ve ever actually eaten one, you probably noticed the entire crust changes completely. This one is merely an addition and still tastes like traditional pizza.
I love this pizza dough recipe because it creates a real pizza dough, and simply incorporates the veggies into it for extra nutrients. My kids love it! I mean look at these, what’s not to love right?
Another fun part of making your own dough is that you can make fun shapes. Since St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner, I shaped our pizza dough into cute little shamrocks for a fun, festive touch.
Why You’ll Love This No Yeast Pizza Dough
- Customizable Cuties – These adorable mini pizzas offer the opportunity to make different combinations of toppings so that everyone’s pizza is exactly how they want it.
- Easy Cheesy – This recipe is ready in 30 minutes. Self-rising flour means no wait time for your dough! The steps are simple enough for your little one to help out. Also at the very minimum to make the crust all you need is two ingredients.
- Protein Rich – the Greek yogurt pizza dough is one of my favorite high protein pizza dough dishes. It has extra protein compared to traditional yeasted dough.
- Self Rising Flour – It is important not to sub this out with a different type of flour, or the dough will not rise properly. You can also make your own self rising flour and I’ve listed how to make it below.
- Cauliflower – Cauliflower is a great source of fiber and vitamins B, C, and K. This is simply an additional ingredient I’ve added, but it is optional. If you have a selective eater I would grate it extra fine.
- Greek Yogurt – Greek yogurt keeps your dough tender, while also offering a healthy dose of protein.
- Marinara – Use your favorite homemade or jarred pizza sauce.
- Mozzarella Cheese – Pre-shredded mozzarella works great, or if you opt for fresh mozzarella, you can peel and place pieces directly onto your pizzas.
- Mini Pepperonis – Full size pepperonis would be a bit too big for these mini pizzas, so opt for smaller toppings. If making a rectangular large pizza, regular pepperonis will work great!
- Green Bell Pepper – Green pepper is optional, but lends a nice crunch. Green pepper is full of vitamin C, making it a great choice of veggie.

How to Make No Yeast Pizza Dough
1. Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment or non-stick cooking spray. In a bowl, mix flour and yogurt, then grated cauliflower by hand or electric mixer until a dough is formed.
3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll or pat out into a ¼” thick slab.
4. Cut dough disks out with a 4” large, circular cookie cutter to create the mini pizza doughs.
5. Top with marinara, cheese and toppings, then bake for 13-15 minutes. Serve warm.
Step by Step Instructions
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. You can also use parchment paper, pizza stone, or pizza pan. Next, in a bowl you’ll want to mix flour and Greek yogurt, then cauliflower until a dough is formed. If the dough seems a little dry, add water one tablespoon at a time. If dough is too wet, add flour one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. You can do this by hand or with a hand mixer.
Next, it’s time to prepare your work surface. Sprinkle some flour on a clean surface like your counter. If using your hands, just knead it a bit and then use a glass or rolling pin to roll out the dough until it is about ¼ inch thick.
Now you’ll need to cut out your little pizzas. You can also make a large circle pizza or rectangular pizza. It’s actually really quite versatile. Here I used a large cookie cutter to cut dough into 4” discs. You could use other shapes, if you have similarly sized cookie cutters. This is the time to cut out shapes if you want to, for example shamrocks. For simplicity purposes, I used circular shapes.
Finally add your toppings as you would any pizza. First I like to layer the marinara, mozzarella cheese and then pepperoni.
The last step is to bake the pizzas for 13-15 minutes and serve.
Cook’s Tips To Make No Yeast Pizza Dough
- For extra nutrients, you can hide even more veggies in the sauce. Simply throw spinach, or steamed broccoli or carrots into a blender with your sauce and pulse until you no longer see chunks of veggies. (Should only take a few seconds.)
- Cauliflower comes in a variety of colors. Try grating a few different colors into your dough to make a fun, all natural tie-dye pizza crust.
- For a fun side, you can also use these Greek yogurt pizza dough a different way. Just wrap a few of your dough discs around string cheeses to make stuffed bread sticks.
- Use your favorite pizza topping as desired. You can put mushrooms, ham and pineapple, anything you already love on pizzas.
- In a pinch you can use bread flour, but please take into account the baking soda and salt below.
You can make your own. You can make one cup of self rising flour by combining flour, baking powder and salt. To make it, combine 1 cup of all purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
You can keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Yes! After baking and cooling, these can be frozen for up to three months.
I like to defrost it over night and then microwave or reheat it in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes.
