You can make pizza without turning on the oven! What do you say to that? The recipe for making pizza in a pan is ideal for making varied mini pizzas or preparing a delicious individual-sized pizza, but without turning on the oven: a very easy pizza dough recipe that you will cook in a few minutes and that you can accompany with your favorite ingredients.

The fact that it is an easy recipe to prepare does not mean that it does not require foresight: it is convenient for the dough to rest for a few hours, so keep in mind that you should prepare it the day before you are going to enjoy it. The wait is worth it.

Ideas to accompany your pizzas

As for how to fill it, that is a matter of taste: with or without tomato, with onion, cheese, chorizo ​​or ham, endives or arugula, raisins and nuts or fruit such as pineapple or pear, olives, anchovies, tuna, peppers , egg... You will have dough to prepare delicious assorted mini pizzas, or prepare them in a larger size with your favorite ingredients.

Pro Le Creuset nonstick frying pan


For 8 medium pizzas or 12 mini pizzas.

For the mass:

  • 10g yeast
  • 140ml lukewarm water
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a pinch of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 250g of flour

Others: Optionally, branches of rosemary and/or sage.


  1. In a glass with warm water, crumble the yeast and dilute it.
  2. In a bowl, mix the salt, sugar and olive oil with the flour and add the water with the yeast. Mix everything until you get a homogeneous paste. Cover it or wrap it in film and let it rest in the fridge overnight.
  3. The next day, remove the dough from the fridge and let it lose the cold for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out the dough to form 8 medium disks or 12 mini pizzas. Heat a large frying pan (I recommend using a non-stick frying pan or the Le Creuset Iron Skillet , brush with oil), add a little olive oil and put 3-4 pancakes on it. If you like pizzas with a good herbal flavor, sprinkle some herbs on top of the dough, they will release all their aroma. Cover the pan (you can use the Nordic Ware smoker lid ) and cook for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown.
  5. Remove the lid, turn them over and cook on the other side for a few minutes. In about 5-7 minutes you have them ready!


  • When you flip them over, it's a good time to add tomato sauce, cheese, and whatever seasonings you like. Thus, with the heat of the pan while the second side is being made, the cheese will melt.
  • Also keep in mind that the pizza dough without any seasoning other than some roasted herbs sprinkled on top is an ideal snack, both for an appetizer and to accompany salads, grilled meats, fish... Instead of using the popular focaccia, use these flavored pizzas and you will see the success you have.
  • Remember that some people like it spicy, so a drizzle of pizza oil can also be the final chilli pepper to these delicious pan pizzas.
