Baking powder Pizza: Easy to make comfort food

Pizza is comfort food for many people ^^ included me. Flour and cheese, you don't need anything much to make it delicious.
But making pizza yourself is not, kneading it and wait for it is not fun esp when you don't have enough time or if you're not making bread regularly it will be a pain too. 
So I think making it with baking powder is a better choice (and great for people who're allergic to yeast too). It's so easy to make, you can make, bake and yes eat them it in less than 1 hour. The time line will be: 1st mix and knead the dough, 2nd divide the dough cover, let it rest and preheat the oven, 3rd prepare the topping 4th roll, top the dough with topping and bake, finally the 5th take the pizza out of the oven and eat, hehe. You can see that it's so easy.
I give you here 2 kinds of dough, wholewheat flour dough and plain flour dough, both of them are easy to make, go for wholewheat type if you want chewier pizza ^^. 
*I use Shortening (rice bran non-hydrogenated shortening) for this recipe as it's 100% fat so it can be used in place of oil and have no flavour too.
You can use your hand to shape pizza too, press it lightly to make fluffy one as the rolling pin make thiner crust ^^. 




Baking powder Pizza
Make 2 -20cm thin pizza (from each type of dough)



Baking powder pizza dough
Wholewheat type:
80g ............................ Wholewheat flour
80g ............................ Cake flour
1tsp ............................ Baking powder
85g ............................ Water
................................... Pinch of salt
15g ............................ Shortening (I use non-hydrogenated shortening)

Plain flour type:
80g ............................ Bread flour
80g ............................ Cake flour
1tsp ............................ Baking powder
90-95g ....................... Water
................................... Pinch of salt
15g ............................ Shortening (I use non-hydrogenated shortening)

Topping
You can use anything that you like, I use Salami and Tomato for mine ^^.
Mozzarella cheese
Tomato sauce

I use this Shortening  (non-hydrogenated shortening).

Put both kinds of flour into a bowl with a pinch of salt and baking powder, whisk to combine.


Pour the water into the bowl.
Mix with spatula until moisten.
Use your hand to knead until fully combine.
Put the shortening into the bowl, and knead.
Because of the wholewheat flour the dough won't be very smooth.
Divide into 2 balls, cover with plastic wrap, let the dough rest for 30 minutes. They will be easier to roll but the size will be the same ^^.


Preheat the oven to 230C.
Roll each ball into a sheet (about 20cm).
You can use your hand to shape pizza too, press it lightly to make fluffy one as the rolling pin make thiner crust ^^. 
Top with our choice of topping.
I spread tomato sauce, sprinkle with cheese, place both Salami and tomato on top then sprinkle with cheese again.
Bake for 12 minutes or until brown.
Serve immediately and enjoy.
For plain flour dough, you need to knead it longer than the wholewheat one.


Follow the same method as the wholewheat flour.
