The Best & Easiest Gluten Free Pizza Crust Ever

Yes, that’s right! This is the best pizza crust we’ve ever tried making (and we’ve tried quite a few recipes). Not only is it gluten free, but it’s also dairy free and egg free (without the optional egg). This is a yeast crust, and unlike other recipes where you have to let the yeast work in a separate bowl before combining, this is a one bowl crust, with no separate processes! There isn’t even any rise time, and it turns out amazing. We LOVE to eat pizza, so for us this pizza crust discovery has been the bomb – I honestly can’t taste a difference between a regular crust and this one. This menu item is found on Week One of The Three Week Menu Plan (that could save your marriage).

Note: I did find this recipe online over a year ago. We have since made changes, but I have done a search now to find my source and can’t find the recipe that we started out with. Here is our version:

The Best & Easiest Gluten Free Pizza Crust Ever (makes 1 pizza crust)

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp quick rise instant yeast
2/3 cup white rice flour
2/3 cup tapioca starch
3 Tbsp ground flax seeds
2 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp gelatin
1 tsp seasoning of your choice (I like to use dried onion flakes, or basil and garlic)
2/3 cup warm water (not too hot)
1/2 tsp honey
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 egg OR a bit of extra water

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using dough hooks, beat on high for 3 minutes.

3. Put mixture on ungreased pizza stone, or lightly greased baking pan.

4. Sprinkle rice flour on dough, and press out in pan. (This is important – if you don’t use enough flour, the dough will just stick to your hand and you won’t be able to press it out).

5. Bake for 10 minutes.

6. Top with your favourite toppings, and bake for another 15 minutes.

Enjoy!

On the pizza pictured above, we enjoyed a barbeque sauce base, with (leftover) pulled chicken, green pepper, mushrooms, tomatoes, and goats cheese. Mmmmm.

    1. That looks amazing, and easy!

      • Amy Stockwell says:

        What if I don’t have dough hooks? Can I just use a hand blender?

        • Yes you can, you might just have to clean out the attachments a couple of times during the mixing process since the dough is pretty sticky. It should work though.

    2. What if I have neither dough hooks or a hand blender?… If I just mix it up real good with my hands for a few minutes, do you think that’d do the trick? I’m really itching to make some pizza. Yum.

      • That’s a good question Susie! I’m not sure if it would work with your hands…it’s really sticky dough. You could probably stir it with a mixing spoon for a few minutes but it might end up being quite a workout! Let me know how it goes if you try.
