  • 2 cups flour plus more for dusting use 00 flour for best results
  • 1 packet pizza crust yeast must use this type of yeast to make no rise dough
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 6 oz pumpkin ale substitute with an amber ale/lager
  • Toppings: feel free to top with whatever you'd like, below is a suggestion
  • 1/2 apple cored, diced, skin on
  • 2 chicken sausage links diced
  • 2-3 sprigs of thyme leaves only
  • 1/4 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup aged Asiago cheese shavings divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • hot honey to taste


  • Start by warming up the ale to 100℉ (do not let it reach a higher temperature as it will kill the yeast).
  • Turn the oven on to 425℉.
  • Place 1 1/2 cups of the flour with the sugar, yeast, turmeric and salt in the bowl of a stand-up mixer equipped with the dough hook. Mix them with a fork.
  • Add the warmed ale and mix on low until the ingredients are well blended together.
  • Continue to mix and slowly begin to add the remaining 1/2 cup flour until you observe the dough pulling away from the bowl and forming a ball.
  • Remove the somewhat sticky dough and place it on a clean and floured surface.
  • Knead for about 3 minutes, adding flour as needed.
  • Cut the dough into 4 equally sized portions and shape it into balls.
  • Using a rolling pin to shape four flatbreads.
  • Place them onto a (perforated recommended) pizza pan or parchment paper lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Top with the toppings listed above (reserving half of the Asiago shavings for later) or your choice of toppings.
  • Place in the oven for about 10 mins or until dough appears cooked through.
  • Sprinkle the remaining Asiago shavings and drizzle with hot honey.
