Healthy Pan Pizza Recipe – Are You Kidding?

Okay, admittedly, pizza will never be the healthiest meal in the world. However, you can turn it into a relatively wholesome meal with a just few tips and tricks. And compared to a frozen pizza, this no-yeast no-rise pan pizza recipe is a really healthy alternative.

That’s partly because we only need three ingredients to make this no-yeast, no-rise pan pizza. These are whole wheat flour, yogurt and baking powder. If you compare that to the miserably long ingredient lists on the frozen pizza boxes, that’s a huge difference.

But it ultimately depends on the toppings when it comes to the question about how well-balanced and nutritious this pan pizza will turn out to be. If you add some vegetables and some few extra proteins, your pizza will be quite nutritious.  

But you know what? Not every single meal has to be super balanced and nutritious all the time. So, if you’re just craving pizza, you’re still making a great choice with this no-yeast, no-rise pan pizza recipe.

And whenever I have one of those days, I just try to incorporate a bit more veggies into my other meals that day and I’m right back on track. Just keep in mind that the balance is the key to a healthy and wholesome diet. 😊


The quantities, as they are given in this no-yeast no-rise pan pizza recipe, refer to one serving. If you want to make two, three or more servings, you can easily adjust the amounts accordingly.

I always base portion sizes on my personal dietary needs (presumably those of the average woman). However, you or perhaps one of your fellow eaters may need more (or less) than I do.

Ingredients for one serving of the no-yeast no-rise pan pizza dough:

  • 75 grams or ½ cup or 2.6 ounces of whole wheat flour
  • 65 grams or ¼ cup or 2.3 ounces of plain yoghurt
  • one teaspoon of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt

Furthermore …

  • one teaspoon of oil
  • Pizza toppings of choice

Alternatives and Substitutions

Fell free to use a plant-based alternative instead of yogurt. Just make sure that you’re using a unsweetened one. Furthermore, you can also use a higher protein alternative such as low-fat Greek yogurt.

And the best thing with pizza is of course the topping and that you can choose whatever you like most! One of my favorites is a simple pizza topping with the world’s best pizza sauce, some mozzarella cheese, and some cherry tomatoes.

But once again, feel free to use whatever you like most.

Pizza Bianca with Ricotta Cheese and Vegetables

One pizza topping, I’ve recently fall in love with, is a ricotta cheese pizza with pan fried vegetables. To do so, just mix some ricotta cheese with a fat-reduced cream cheese and spread it on top of your no-yeast no-rise pan pizza dough. Then top it with some pan-fried eggplant and zucchini slices and some shredded pizza or mozzarella cheese.

Healthy No-Yeast No-Rise Pan Pizza Recipe – Here’s How It’s Done

Well, let’s take a look at how to make this no-yeast no-rise whole wheat pan pizza recipe! First of all, let’s start with the pizza dough. Therefore, put all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and knead it into a well-combined dough.

Now place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and either roll it out with a rolling pin or shape it into a semi-round pizza by using your hands.

Pan Pizza Made on the Stove and in the Oven

All right, this recipe comes with two options on how to prepare the no-yeast no-rise pan pizza. If you have an oven-safe pan, I suggest the first one:

While you’re shaping your dough, you can heat up your pan over medium-high heat and then carefully spread the oil in it – preferably by using a silicone brush or kitchen tissue. Now carefully place the pizza in the pan and fry it for three minutes.

Then remove the pan from the heat and place it in the preheated oven at 160°C or 320°F.

Now remove the pan from the oven and top your pizza with your favorite pizza toppings. Then put the pan back into the oven for about eight to ten minutes.

If your pan can handle higher temperatures, feel free to increase the temperature while decreasing the time to five minutes.

How to Make Pan Pizza Without an Oven

If you don’t have an oven-safe pan on hand, that’s not a problem at all. In that case, you simply prepare the pan pizza just on the stove.

To do so, start as with the oven version and fry the pizza dough from one side for three minutes. Then carefully flip it over, remove it from the stove while topping it with your favorite ingredients.

Now put the pan back on the stove and continue frying it over medium heat until your cheese has melted. To speed up the process and prevent the pizza from burning on the bottom side, you should put a lid on top. This keeps the heat inside the pan, just like in an oven. And after a few minutes the pizza is ready to serve.
