I absolutely adore my yeasted gluten free pizza base recipe, but sometimes you just need pizza in a hurry. And with no yeast!

Shop-bought gluten free pizzas never quite cut it, which is why I absolutely love this gluten free yoghurt pizza dough recipe. No yeast needed for that delicious rise!

So if you need an easy homemade pizza which is doughy, crispy and absolutely delicious, this Greek yoghurt pizza base is perfect.

If you want to, you can also use the shaping and cooking guidelines in my gluten free stuffed crust pizza and gluten free mini pizzas using this dough too.

Why make this recipe?

  • Two Ingredients: You only need Greek yoghurt and gluten free self-raising flour (see the substitutions below if you only have plain flour) to make this dreamy gluten and yeast free pizza dough. That’s it – it’s magic!
  • Gluten Free: I make this using gluten free flour so it’s 100% gluten-free and coeliac-safe, but the recipe works with normal wheat flour too if you don’t need gluten free.
  • Yeast Free: Got a yeast intolerance or just want a yeast free pizza base? This homemade pizza dough has a beautiful rise without using any yeast.
  • So Quick: No need to wait for the yeast to activate or the dough to prove. Simply knead the dough together, shape, top and bake.

Ingredients and Substitutions

You only need two ingredients to make this gluten and yeast free pizza base, but I also have some handy swaps for you.

Gluten Free Self-Raising Flour

I use the FREEE gluten free self-raising flour, but in the US particularly I have found this is largely not available.

If you only have Plain Gluten Free Flour or All Purpose Gluten Free Flour then you’ll need to add 1 tsp gluten free baking powder per 100g of flour.

I’d also recommend adding 1/4 tsp xantham gum to this recipe if using gluten free plain flour as this will help make the dough more pliable.

Greek Yoghurt

You can use full-fat, low-fat or zero-fat Greek yoghurt, they all work perfectly well in this no yeast pizza dough.

You can also use natural yoghurt (full or non-fat) but this may be a little runnier, so you may need a tiny bit extra flour.

For the pizza toppings:

Of course you can top your gluten free Greek yoghurt pizza with anything you like, but my top pizza toppings are:

  • Marinara Sauce: You can use the pizza sauce topping in my gluten free pizza recipe or just use passata or tomato puree with some basic herbs if you like.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: An essential for that pizza cheese pull! Use a vegan alternative if you’re making a dairy free/vegan yoghurt pizza base.
  • Meats: Pepperoni, salami, Parma ham, bacon lardons and cooked chicken are great.
  • Vegetables: Mushrooms, mixed peppers, red onion, spinach and sweetcorn are all delicious additions to any pizza.

However you top your yeast free pizza, please let me know! I’m always looking for new ideas of topping combinations and would love to hear your favourites.

How to make a no yeast pizza dough

This quick easy pizza dough is so simple to make, but here are some step-by-step photos to guide you through the process.

To make this gluten free, yeast free pizza crust recipe:

Making the yeast free pizza dough with yoghurt and gluten free flour.

Preheat the oven to 220’C / 200 Fan / Gas 7. I like to cook mine on a mesh pizza tray like this one  to get a nice crisp bottom, but you can also cook this on a pizza pan or baking tray.

Add the Greek yoghurt and gluten free flour to a large mixing bowl and mix together using a wooden spoon. As it starts to form a dough, use your hands to bring it all together into a large ball.

Lay out a piece of baking paper and lightly sprinkle it with some extra gluten free flour. Turn the dough out onto the paper and flatten into a circle shape. Lightly sprinkle with some extra gluten free flour.

Shaping the yoghurt pizza dough and placing on a pizza mush.

Roll the yoghurt pizza dough out on the lightly floured surface until it is approximately 1cm thick (roll under a piece of clingfilm if easier to stop it sticking). Place a mesh pizza tray on top of the circle and carefully flip the whole thing over, so the dough circle sits on top of the tray.

If you only have a metal baking tray, simply transfer the dough on the paper straight onto the tray instead.

The yeast free pizza before and after cooking.

Mix the dried basil and oregano with the passata and spread evenly over the base.

Top with the cheese and toppings of choice and place in the oven for around 15 minutes, until the base is golden round the edges and all the toppings have cooked.

Serve straight away cut into slices. See the FAQ section below for details on storing and reheating.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Greek yoghurt pizza dough gluten free?

This no yeast pizza dough recipe is completely gluten free, made using gluten free self-raising flour. It does also work with wheat flour, if you’ve stumbled across this recipe but don’t need to avoid gluten.

Can you make vegan Greek yoghurt pizza dough?

I’ve actually trialled this and my gluten free doughballs recipe using coconut yoghurt and find this works really well as a vegan option. Any dairy free yoghurt should work to make a vegan yoghurt pizza though.

Can you make gluten free pizza without yeast?

Yes! Using a combination of Greek yoghurt and self-raising gluten free flour gives the pizza a gorgeous, doughy texture. The raising agents in the flour help the dough rise without the need for any yeast – the perfect no yeast pizza dough.

Can I make yoghurt pizza dough ahead of time?

Yes! Simply mix the dough up, wrap in clingfilm and place in the fridge. It will keep for up to 3 days.

How to store leftover Greek yoghurt pizza?

This Greek yoghurt pizza crust is best eaten fresh – it can harden up a little when it cools. If keeping leftovers, I recommend keeping them in the fridge and reheating in an oven, air fryer, or in a pan with the lid on, before eating.

    First time making these and they taste delicious. We all have the gf pizza 🍕 in our house only my daughter has coeliac disease but we don’t use gluten flour in the house. Think these will be the new Friday night treat, I think they taste much nicer than any shop bought pizza.
