I love a meal that can be made in just one or two steps, that dirties a minimum of dishes, and that everyone in the family will LOVE. I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to cheat on my meal prep; something that will take something I know is good and make it just that much easier. So when I started seeing ‘Ovenless Pizzas’ floating around on the internet, well that really got my attention. And it turns out that they’re pretty yummy, reaaaaaaly easy to cook, and you can make them any old way you choose and please your own palate. YOU CAN PIN THIS RECIPE FOR LATER!
A non-stick pan with a tight lid works best, but you can also use a well-oiled iron skillet with a lid as well. The only other equipment you’ll need aside from a few measuring spoons/cups is just a simple bowl. Doesn’t get much easier than that, and clean-up is a cinch.
For the dough:
Combine in a bowl-
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
generous pinch of salt
1 teaspoon dry yeast
2 teaspoons agave nectar
2/3 cup warm water
For the rest:
Toppings of your choice
Cheese or Vegan cheese product
Mix gently, but thoroughly. It will be a very loose, wet dough. Let the dough sit while you prepare your toppings.
Warm your skillet to just under medium- too hot, and the skillet will burn the crust. Spread your dough evenly into your warmed, oiled skillet (or non-stick skillet). Cover the entire surface area with sauce- not too much or it’ll get soupy. A nice, thin covering of sauce that goes all the way to the edge of the pan. Then add your toppings, and cover with your cheese or Vegan cheese of choice. Cover, and cook for 10 minutes. When it’s done, you should be able to lift the pizza out with a spatula onto a cutting board. Cut, and serve!
I topped my pizza with Daiya mozzarella shreds, slices of portobello mushrooms, and basil straight from my garden. It was the perfect combo!

hmmm this is such a cool idea.
I like that I can make this on the stovetop!
What a neat idea! This looks super yummy and I love you don’t have to heat up the oven which is nice during summer.
I’ve never tried making a stove top pizza, but would like to try it. Thanks for the idea and the recipe.
I have been making stove top pizza weekly now for a while – this is sooo much better than what I’ve been doing, I must try this asap!!! oh boy!!!
Couldn’t be easier!! I would make it in a small omlette skillet so it would be a single serving size
We are always looking for different meals to prepare on our Italian nights!
Thanks for the post. My oven isn’t working right now and I’ve been missing my pizza nights.
That’s a great way to make a pizza. Have to try it soon.
I love making pizza, and haven’t been doing it for a while, as I didn’t want to fire up the oven. I am so happy to see this recipe, I can’t wait to try it. I miss my homemade pizza!
I recently started baking bread but haven’t tried pizza dough. This looks so easy that I think even I could make it! My daughter loves pizza!
