Easy No-Rise Pizza Dough

As you know, pizza is my favorite food.  We make it at least once a week.  I saw this recipe for a quick pizza crust without yeast over on Karin’s Viking Kitchen and I knew I had to give it a try ASAP! I love to make pizza dough from scratch, but it usually takes too much time for a weeknight.  This pizza dough uses beer instead of yeast.  The result is a quick and tasty thin-crust pizza that is on the table in under 30 minutes.  We both absolutely loved it.  This is our new go-to weeknight pizza dough.  Give it a try for your next pizza night!

How to Make Pizza Dough with Beer

This pizza dough is super easy to make. Place flour, butter, and salt in a food processor. Pulse the mixture to a few times to incorporate the butter. Next, slowly pour in the beer and process until a dough forms. That is it!

I used Michelob Ultra for the beer in this recipe. I wanted something light that didn’t over power the dough. Feel free to use your favorite beer in this recipe. If you enjoy the taste of the beer in a glass, you will enjoy it in this pizza crust.

Weeknight Pizza Dough

Once the dough is ready, roll it out into a circle. Make the crust as thick or as thin as you prefer. We prefer a thin crust, so I rolled my crust out to about 14-inches. It was perfect. Top the pizza with your favorite toppings and bake.

This pizza tastes SO much better than delivery and takes less time! I love the simplicity of the crust and being able to customize the pizza with our favorite toppings.

Beer Crust Pizza – homemade pizza crust made with beer, salt, flour and butter. Made in the food processor – super quick recipe! No rising necessary. Ready for the oven in minutes!



  • Place pizza stone in oven and preheat to 475°F.
  • Pulse the flour and salt together in a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Pulse in the cold butter until it’s well distributed. Add the beer and pulse until smooth.
  • Roll out dough onto a piece of parchment paper (I trace my pizza stone onto parchment before placing it in the oven as a guide).
  • Prick dough with fork and add sauce, cheese and toppings. Transfer pizza to hot pizza stone. (I use a flat cookie sheet to move the dough to the stone).
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.


Can use any beer you prefer. If you don’t like beer, use a light beer such as Michelob Ultra.

  1. Have to make this, what’s better than beer and pizza together.
    I’m a sucker for your pizza doughs, made most of them, we love the St. Louis crust.
    I even got a pizza stone, what a difference.
    Thanks, Steph!

    1. I LOVE the St. Louis Pizza dough too! SO good. And, YES, a pizza stone makes ALL the difference!

  2. I used this recipe this evening for the third time this month, and I just have to say I'm in love with it. Not only is it delicious, but so incredibly quick and easy as well. I just use a cookie sheet (until I get a nice pizza stone) and pre-bake it for about 10 mins before adding the toppings. A million thanks to you for sharing this recipe!

  3. Stephanie – I haven't tried freezing or refrigerating the dough. I just make it right before we want to eat it since it only takes a few minutes to make. I'm not sure how that would work since there is no yeast in the dough – I need to experiment with that in the future.

    You can use your hands or even your mixer to make the dough if your food processor is too small.

  4. I'm making this tonight and have two quick questions… can it be made ahead and frozen or stuck in the refrigerator? Also, if my food processor is too small, can I use my hands to mix it all together instead? Thanks!

  5. My family and I love making homemade pizza I am going to try this in the next few weeks. I just sounds amazing. I seen Beer and I was sold.

  6. which stone do you have? I have one of the PC stones (I also have a slight PC addiction) but I didnt think you could preheat those.

  7. Sounds too easy! But we love, love, love Beer Bread and it too is waaaayyyy easy. Thanks for passing it along…

  8. Beer and pizza in title = must read. We don't usually make our own crust unless it's bread day but this may change that. Excellent idea and I love your close-up shot.
