Yeast free soda pop pizza dough
For a while, because of where we are living currently, we couldn’t get yeast. I found a recipe for bread using pop instead of yeast, and it sounded so quirky I had to try it.
And being that it was a Friday evening, which often calls for pizza, I decided to make the bread into a crust for pizza.
Allan’s pizza was bacon and cheese… always lots of cheese!
While I had pineapple and spinach with cheese… again, lots of cheese!
I know it sounds bizarre. It is. But it actually also makes a pretty decent pizza crust. I made it a bit thicker than I would have liked, Allan prefers thin crust pizzas, so next time I will half the amount of dough.
Of course, I also made it as a loaf, just to try it. But forgot to take a picture. I prefer yeast bread, but in a pinch it makes a decent loaf of bread too.
Yeast Free Bread with soda pop
- 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour (I used AP flour and added some baking powder)
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle lemon-lime flavoured carbonated beverage
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9×5 inch loaf pan.
- Combine the flour, sugar and carbonated beverage. Mix well and place into the prepared pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes. Note: If using a sweetened carbonated beverage cut back on the sugar a little.
To make the pizza, I didn’t bake the dough in a loaf pan, but instead spread it onto a pizza sheet.
