Today, Tommy and his mommy are making pizza using a yeast-free recipe!

"We always wanted to make our own pizza but yeast is hard to find these days so today we are trying an alternate recipe," said new media reporter Heather Green-Oliver. "See how it turns out live at 10 a.m. on"

Every week day at 10 a.m., Heather and her five-year-old son Thomas get into fun, games and learning live on's Facebook page. Join lots of other local parents and their kids for an interactive distraction. 

Watch past live shows of Tommy and his mommy here.

Yeast-free 15 minute pizza recipe:

Preheat oven to 400F

2 1/2 cups of flour
3 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon of baking powder

In separate container, mix:
1 1/2 cups of water
1 tablespoon of olive oil

Add water mixture to dry ingredients a little bit at a time while mixing with a wooden spoon or your hands.

Too dry? Add a little more water until it makes a good dough ball.

Roll out onto a 12" pizza pan, make a lip around the edge

Add pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese and your favourite toppings.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
