Instant Pizza Crust

Instant Pizza Crust

Instant Pizza Crust is a pizza crust that does not require yeast as a rising agent. Instead, it uses yogurt, baking powder leavening agents to create a light and airy crust. This type of pizza crust can be made quickly and easily, without the need for proofing and waiting for the dough to rise. It may also be a good option for individuals who have a yeast intolerance or prefer a simpler and quicker pizza crust recipe.

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp. salt
