I have a seriously weakness for pizza. It is my deserted island food. I can't live without it! This Crazy Crust Pizza is a new favorite! The crust is crazy because it is a liquid batter and not a dough. Very different and VERY good!! The crust batter and toppings are baked together and then the pizza is topped with sauce and cheese. I have to admit that I was skeptical, but I it turned out great!

We topped our Crazy Crust Pizza with sausage, pepperoni and ham. Feel free to use your favorite pizza toppings. Sometimes I add mushrooms and peppers to half of the pizza for Chicken Legs. Get creative!!

I made this Crazy Crust Pizza in a 15x10-inch jelly roll pan. You can also use the same recipe to make this in a 12 or 14-inch round rimmed pizza pan. I don't have a rimmed pizza pan, so I used the jelly roll pan. This makes a thin crust pizza. We prefer thin crust, so this is perfect!

  1. Question - Is there no leavening agent? yeast?
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  2. Would this work for a plain cheese pizza?

    ReplyDelete
  3. OK - I have to try this - it sounds easy!!! yummers!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Does the “crust” have more of a cake like consistency...like a pancake, maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  5. I’m intrigued...I’ll have to give it a whirl! :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. Is it similar to a thin crust style pizza? If not like cake or pancake how would you describe it?

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm surprised there is only 1 tsp Italian seasoning, does the pizza crust have much flavor?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Feel free to adjust seasonings to your preference. Most pizza crusts don’t have any seasoning.

  8. I love pizza so I have got to try this !,

  9. If you add mushrooms and peppers to your pizza, when do you add them? Do you precook them at all? Thanks. Anxious to try this recipe!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Add them when you would add the other meat toppings. You can precook them if you prefer

      Delete
    2. I would precook them to get the moisture out of them. Especially mushrooms. You don't want a soggy pizza!

      Delete
  10. This is very interesting and we need to give it a try.

  11. Can you freeze or reheat this Pizza as there are only the two of us? I am eager to try this one as my husband loves pizza but is very picky

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think it would be fine to freeze the leftovers and reheat for later.

      Delete
    2. The recipe ingredients could easily be cut in half for a smaller size pizza too :-)

      Could you use almond flour instead to make it lower carb?

      Delete
  12. Made this today and only had pepperoni as topping - very thin when using 15X10 sheet pan. Delicious! Will make again and try using a smaller pan for thicker crust. So quick and easy. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The recipe sounds crazy and i can't wait to try it out on Monday! Just curious if i could use an alfredo sauce instead of pizza (tomato based) sauce. I'd like to make it with grilled chicken and jalapenos!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Any good substitutes for the eggs? I'm super wanting to try this but cannot have eggs.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The eggs would primarily act as the leavening agent here (think German pancakes/ Dutch baby recipes) so unless there is an egg substitute that can replicate that property then, no. The comment below recommending banana or applesauce as an egg substitute should NOT be used in this case - it's only a good substitute in sweet baked goods (like muffins) where the eggs are for binding and moisture. Banana-flavored pizza crust would not be very pleasant.

      Delete
    2. Since the egg is a binding agent as well as making this dough rise the bit it does I'd suggest using a flax egg and 1/2-1 tsp baking powder to add that rise back in. I'm not very familiar with flax egg substitutes but it's just a bit of flax seed and water. It works well as a binding agent the way eggs do but I'm pretty sure it doesn't help things rise

      Delete
    3. I'd suggest 1 flax egg to use as well as 1/2-1 tsp baking powder. The flax egg is used for many vegan recipes that use egg, such as cookies. It adds no real flavour, and the baking powder will give you the rise that eggs provide.

      Delete
  15. Do you put any sauce on it? I am looking forward to trying it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I remember this crust from the 70s. It was on the Pillsbury commercials.It turns out pretty well and uses the same concept as the German oven pancake or Dutch baby.I want to try it with my Food class next semester.

  17. OMG....thank you. I made this recipes years ago...then lost my recipe. It was delicious then and I expect it to be delicious now.

    ReplyDelete
  18. To EBeauty03 regarding egg substitute. You can try 1/4 cup of mashed banana per egg, or 1/4 cup applesauce per egg

    ReplyDelete
  19. Could you use a gluten free flour?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I haven't made this with gluten free flour, so I can not say with certainty if it will turn out. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

      Delete
    2. I would think gluten free would be okay since the eggs are the leavening agent and not something to do with the flour.

      Delete
  20. Wow, I can't wait to try this!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. The base is very similar to Yorkshire Puddings or what us Brits call 'Toad in the Hole'.
    Maybe just less oil than the UK versions

    ReplyDelete
  22. Does this crust turn out very crunchy? I want my husband to love this but he has an aversion to very crunchy things. A little crispy is ok! Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi! Is this crust crispy or cakey? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Very good made it tonight. Cannot leave well enough alone. Added garlic powder, garlic salt more Italian seasoning and more black pepper to batter. I did all hot sausage and banana peppers. Turned out great. Thanks for the great recipe ��

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love how easy this was, but it was wayyy to thin for a 15x10 pan. Next time, I will 1.5x or 2x the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just measured my pan and it is 15x10 and the recipe works great in it. Obviously people have different preferences on pizza crust. Maybe try baking in a 9x13 pan next time if you prefer a thicker crust.

      Delete
  26. For some reason when I tried this tonight it was burning before the 20 minutes was even up .

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is weird. I’ve made this several times and the cooking times work fine.

      Delete
    2. Crystal, you might try getting a hanging oven thermometer. If your oven is hotter than your setting, that would be why it is burning. I had an oven that did that to me all the time, and I ended up setting it 50* cooler and it was perfect.

  27. Just an FYI, my hubby made waffles and left me with zero flour, so I used THM Baking blend which IS gleuten free. I had to add an additional egg and a full cup of milk instead of 2/3 C. Milk. It was still a bit more of a “spread” and not a “pour”. Pizza turned out fine.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am going to try this tonight with chicken, sausage, alfredo and veggies. A pour crust I might be doing pizza's weekly. :)

  29. family loved it! Thank you! Love your site (so do my kids)

  30. I am so glad to have come across this recipe! Back in the day (mid 80's) I sold Tupperware and this pizza recipe was one I used as a cooking demonstration and was very popular (and yummy too!). I cannot wait to give this a try! Thank you for sharing the recipe and giving us your tips.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'll try this, currently I'm using Greek yogurt and self rising flour pizza crust which is awesome. Like to try new things!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Would this work with a gluten free flour like almond flour?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I’ve only made this as written. I don’t cook with almond flour, so I can not say how it would turn out

      Delete
    2. Did you ever try the almond flour?

      Delete
  33. I am confused why you put the meats on during the first bake? Can't you just head the crust alone, then add the sauce, cheese and toppings?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is your kitchen. You can bake this anyway you wish. Enjoy!

      Delete
  34. Hey great recipe. Can you please advise which Pizza sauce you used as I am in Australia and our pizza sauces vary. Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hello, I made this the other night and the dough rose up into peaks when I baked it the first 20 min. It was very strange. It still tasted good, but looked weird. Any ideas as to why that would happen? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The only thing I can think of is maybe you over-mixed the batter.

    2. Perhaps you have self rising flour?

  36. Finally made this tonight.It was awesome!!! i used sausage and meatballs and then after I put sauce on I added onion, mushrooms, & peppers. Sent a picture of it to my son and his response was "why do you do this to me?" LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Made half recipe this morning. Wonderful,fast and easy. I would add not to over do the sauce. Recipe amounts are great as is. Thank you for this recipe

    ReplyDelete
  38. This looks delicious! If I use a smaller pan, 9x13 maybe, how long should I cook it? When you make yours, is the crust done when you take it out or still a little jiggly?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I made mine in a 9x13 pan last night and I found it a little too cheesy, but that may just be my taste. The crust turned out fine, though a little crispy around the edges. I may reduce initial oven time by 1-2 mins.

      Thanks for the recipe.

      Stay inspired!

  39. I made this tonight and it was delicious. Thanks for sharing, I will definitely make it again.

  40. I made this today and we loved it! And baking the toppings in the crust may be my new favorite thing. Might try doubling crust next time. Great recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Can you make this in a baking dish? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I usually don’t comment on recipes but this one deserves a 5 star review!! I made it for lunch today and the only thing I didn’t do is add Italian seasoning to the crust. The pizza was perfectly browned, crispy, and delicious. My husband said he’ll eat this pizza anytime. :). Thanks for sharing !

  43. Will a shallow-rimmed half-sheet size pan (18" × 13") work or too large?

  44. Ok crazy questions..... Can almond flour with baking powder and almond milk be substituted. I can’t have gluten or dairy.

    1. I don’t cook with almond flour, so I don’t know if that will work.

  45. Was glad there was video, thank you. My family thought it was delish. It’s a keeper!

  46. This post took me back in time. I was at a Tupperware party back in the 80's where the Tupperware rep used one of their containers to show how to shake up the ingredients to make this crust, then topped it just like you did. Thanks for the time-machine recipe. It made me smile.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This recipe was a big hit with my husband. I made it gluten free because I am a Celiac and it was absolutely great. I was told by my husband that I can make this any time we have Pizza Night. Keep the great recipes coming.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Has anyone tried this with dairy free milk (such as almond milk)?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I had my dough bake up into peaks, as mentioned above, but continued on. It's called "crazy crust pizza" after all so I went with it. I added a bit of onion and garlic powder to crust- even with the peaks it was really good.
    Kids loved it, so happy you shared recipe!

  50. Is it really 1 cup of flour? I had to use way more milk, the video looked like maybe 1/2 c flour? I'm not great in the kitchen, hence the silly question?

    1. Yes. It is 1 cup of flour. The amount of flour will vary depending on how you scoop it - don’t pack the measuring cup. Just lightly scoop and level the top of the measuring cup

  51. What gluten free flour did you use? They are all so different. Thanks in advance.
