Tawa pizza recipe without yeast video – Making a pizza without oven, on a tawa or pan is quick and simple. Though it can be made with yeast dough, tawa pizza turns out best when made with dough that has no yeast in it. The flavor of yeast dough baked in a oven is good rather than the one cooked on stove top preparations.
This no yeast tawa pizza recipe may be useful to those who do not have a oven or do not prefer to eat foods made with yeast either because they are sensitive to yeast or allergic or want to just avoid yeast to prevent health conditions.
I get lot of requests from readers to share healthy recipes that I try for my kids. Though sharing every recipe I make for them is not possible, thought of sharing a few that I am sure will be loved by your kids’ too. This tawa pizza recipe is healthy if made using whole grain flour (atta) and cheese without any additives.
I had made this tawa pizza from Nisahomey’s blog a few times when she suggested me last year to try for my kids.
For this recipe I have made the pizza dough using yogurt and soda. No yeast pizza dough can also be made using egg and no yogurt or soda is used in such recipe. I will share it sometime soon. This recipe yields a pizza with good crust and soft inside without being hard.
Using this recipe you will be able to make 3 thin crust personal pan pizzas of 6 inches. You can also make one thick pizza of 9 inches or 2 – 9 inch thin crust pizzas. You can also make chicken pizza or egg on pizza recipes using this dough.
In this post, I am sharing
1. How to make no yeast pizza dough
2. Making tomato pizza sauce
3. Making & assembling pizza
If you have a pizza sauce handy then just skip making that here. But be sure to use a good sauce since it is the main contributor to the taste of pizza. You can watch the video for clear instructions.

How to make tawa pizza without yeast
1. Add wheat flour (atta), salt, soda and sugar to a mixing bowl.
2. Mix all or sieve all these well.
3. Add curd.
4. Add water and then olive oil.
5. Mix and make a soft non sticky dough. Knead it well for about 5 to 6 minutes until the dough turns very soft. Add few drops of oil and smear well. Cover with a moist cloth and set aside for 1 hour.
6. Meanwhile make pizza sauce. You can skip making this and use ready pizza sauce. Heat oil in a pan and saute garlic. Add red chili flakes. If you do not have the flakes, pulse a few red chilies in the blender.
7. Add onions.
8. Saute until they turn golden.
9. Add tomatoes, salt and sugar. You can also use tomato puree.
10. Cook covered until mushy.
11. Mash the sauce to make it uniform if using tomatoes. Add italian herbs or oregano and crushed pepper.
12. When the sauce turns thick add veggies and saute on a high flame just for 1 to 2 mins. Make sure the sauce doesn’t dry up. If you skip this step, you will have raw veggies on your pizza. This also gives nice aroma to the sauce and toppings. Set this aside to cool.
13. Divide the dough to 2 to 3 parts. Lightly flour the rolling area and flatten a ball. Roll to a chapati that is slightly thicker.
14. Heat the tawa. When it turns very hot, transfer the roti. Keep the flame on medium heat. Press down with a spatula and cook until the base puffs up lightly and cooks completely with brown spots.
