    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.
