Homemade Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Ok I decided to try a recipe I found online that had a lot of great reviews. 
And I'm so happy that I did because this pizza crust turned out to be really awesome.
 The thing I love is that you get a pretty good sized pizza from this and it makes a great crunchy flavorful crust. 


GOSH do I love PIZZA!

There is something so comforting about a piping hot slice of this wonderful dish to make the corners of your mouth just turn up and smile!

Who can turn down an awesome slice of pizza???
Is there really anyone out there that can?


And I think the main reason it's so loved is because it's so versatile.
Literally what ever you want ...
 you can pile it on!

Which brings me to my question.
You know. 
What do you love the most on your pizza?
Is it BBQ sauce? - Fresh Basil? - Alfredo Sauce? - Fresh Tomatoes?

Tell me!
I really want to know.
So post a comment and tell me your favs
and Ill pick one to try
Ok enough lolly-gagging
 ~~~~ on to the recipe ~~~~

Here is what you'll need:
  • 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  • 23; cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons powdered milk (Dairy alternative, 2 T tapioca flour or sweet rice flour in place of 2 T dry milk powder or non-dairy) or 2 tablespoons non-dairy powdered coffee creamer (Dairy alternative, 2 T tapioca flour or sweet rice flour in place of 2 T dry milk powder or non-dairy)
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 23; cup water (110 degrees F)
  • ½ teaspoon sugar or ½ teaspoon honey or ½ teaspoon agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In medium bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend all ingredients on low speed.
  3. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
  4. (If mixer bounces around bowl, dough is too stiff. Add water if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters.) Dough will resemble soft bread dough.
  5. Put mixture on lightly greased 12-inch pizza pan or 11 x 7-inch pan (for deep dish version).
  6. Liberally drizzle olive oil onto dough, then press dough into pan, continuing to drizzle with oil to prevent sticking to hands (you can use rice flour for this instead of oil if you wish)
  7. Make edges slightly thicker to hold toppings.
  8. Bake pizza crust for 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven.
  10. Spread pizza crust with your favorite sauce and toppings.
  11. Bake another 15 to 20 minutes or until top is nicely browned. For a crispier crust place directly onto oven rack. You can cook longer depending on how crispy you like your crust. :)

    I got this recipe from so if you would like to see the reviews or photos of other pizzas just click the link below.

 Crunchy Crust is what our kids love! So this recipe is a hit at our house.

I have a lot of ideas on what I would like to do with this dough too.

Like those
Lunchable Pizza's 
that the kids love to take to school for lunch.

I whipped up a batch of dough and got 4 nice sized pizzas out of it.
{Next time I will make them a tad thinner and will probably be able to get 5 mini pizza's out of it}

Any how I was super excited about how they turned out!!!
Can't use them all right away?
No problem!
Freeze them for a quick snack or lunch.

I have to tell you I am really loving this idea!

Check out baby-cakes below making her own pizza.

 Anna loved them and is super excited about taking these cute little mini pizzas in her lunch.
Kids love making things on their own,
especially their own food.
 Which is why
this type of lunch is always a big hit!

She had a blast whipping up her very own mini pizza and gobbled it down while watching cartoons
and took just enough time to glance away from the TV and give me a
big Ole Thumbs Up!

{PS I have more ideas on ways to work this dough.}
Stay tuned as I bring your more doughy goodness in the weeks to come.

Bon Appetit!
