This pizza base is very easy to make, its without yeast and is made without oven, its eggless as well. Nothing like making things at home, you can make herbed pizza base, garlic pizza base, list is endless! Another recipe on our series Eggless Baking Without Oven.


Plain flour 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Maida)
Yogurt 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Baking soda 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt To Taste
Mixed herbs 1/2 Teaspoon (Optional)
Olive oil 1 1/2 Tablespoon
Plain flour 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (to dust)
Salt 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (For Baking)



Take a idli cooker or pressure cooker or any huge pot and add in the 1½ cups of salt to it. Spread it well and place a wire stand and put up a perforated plate over it.

Cover and heat it up in med flame. Remove the whistle if using pressure cooker and loosen the whistle if using idli cooker.



In a bowl or a kneading plate add the plain flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and herbs {if using}. Mix well and add yogurt and make a sticky soft dough.

Once dough is formed, add oil and knead for a minute. Divide the dough into two for 7" medium thick pizza bases. Adjust if you want thin crust/thick or small/big pizzas.

In a dusted platform roll the portion, if required dust some flour.

Take a 7" cake tin or any plate/utensil. Grease it well with some oil. Sprinkle some flour. Only flour also might work! I've not tested so far. but there's a risk of it getting stuck to the utensil/tin.

Now prick some holes into it using a fork. Transfer this to the cooker/pan and quickly close it.

Bake for 5-6 mins in medium flame. Take it out and let it cool.


Top the Pizza base with pizza sauce and your favorite toppings, bake and enjoy!



As there is yogurt, do not store this for more than 2 days (best used immediately). Do not refrigerate. 

If you have made normal dough without herbs and want to add , just knead in the herbs to the dough.
