    The base will just come out like a fajita wrap if there's no yeast in it I reckon- I don't think it'll be very nice under a pizza. Tescos do 8 sachets of yeast for about 70p- have a root around down the back of the sofa maybe?:confused:

  • Try a grated potatoe Rosti type base?

    #Beg some yeast from a neighbour?

    Go to tescos bakery, they give fresh yeast out for free!!

    There's a recipe for Lazy Pizza in the Old Style Recipe Collection that uses SR flour and works well :)

  • You used to be able to ask for free yeast from the instore bakery in any supermarkets, I am not sure if this is the case now though, can anyone confirm this?

    Yep. Confirmed. People have often spoken of Tescos and my local Asda does too.

    My sister uses plain yoghurt in her pizza base - just this and plain flour, as far as I can remember, maybe salt? She certainly doesn't use yeast, and I'm almost certain that she doesn't add fat, either. I remember that the dough was very stiff and that she used her hands to push it to fit the pizza tin. I'll find out more and get back to you.
  • How about making a flat bread as a pizza base? Just plain flour, baking powder, olive oil and water! ... and a pinch of salt!

    Not sure exact quantites really matter as Lesley Waters just just chucked it all in a bowl and mixed it up on Ready Steady Cook last night :rotfl:

    Or how about my naan bread recipe on the curry page, which is yeastless and would make a superb pizza base if you rolled it out in one big circle :D

    My naan bread recipe uses yoghurt instead of yeast too ;)

    I have to admit I never heard of using yeast in a pizza base until I started reading this site. I always made my pizza bases with flour, salt, water and a spot of oil. I rolled it out to the required thickness. I never had a problem with it, of course it did mean cooking it in moderate oven to ensure the base cooked.
