Thin Crust Unleavened Pizza

The week of unleavened bread has been a joyous one so far. We’ve been doing a LOT of baking and a LOT of eating. That’s what a feast is for! And what better way to feast than with Pizza?

This recipe is unique because the unleavened crust actually has a nice crunch to it; like a thin crust pizza should! It was difficult to get that crunch without adding yeast but I found that baking this crust before adding the toppings, made it work beautifully!

So let’s get into it!

Thin Crust Unleavened Pizza


Makes one 12in pizza

1 cup all purpose flour

1/4 cup water

2 tablespoons melted butter

Seasoning salt to taste

Pizza or pasta sauce to taste

2 cups mozzarella cheese

1/2 lb cooked turkey sausage crumbles

First, heat your oven to 450 degrees. Begin by combining the flour, water, butter, and seasoning salt. Knead until it forms a smooth dough ball. You may need to add a touch more water or flour to adjust the consistency.

Next, sprinkle flour generously on a flat surface and roll out the dough ball. The dough should be quite thin. Somewhere between 1/8in and 1/4in is good. Thicker crust will result in a softer crust.

Line a 13in round pan with parchment paper. Then place the dough onto the lined pan. The dough should go over the edge of the pan. Fold the dough back into pan to make a thicker edge. Cut away the extra parchment paper.

Place the crust in the oven and bake for 5 minutes. The crust should begin to form a few bubbles from the heat. After the 5 minutes, it should feel cooked through, but not crispy.

Take the crust out of the oven and add your sauce. I personally prefer less sauce so we only add a little bit. If you only have pasta sauce, which tends to be a bit more tangy, you can mix a little sugar into it before you spread it onto the crust.

Sprinkle the mozzarella all over the sauce and then add your turkey sausage crumbles. Place back in the oven and cook until done (15-25 mins).

I like to like my pizza rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
