A Completely Gluten Free Pizza Crust Recipe

This pizza dough recipe is great for anyone with an intolerance to glucose. This recipe produces a thin and crispy pizza crust rather than a deep, bread type of crust and is great with vegetarian pizza recipes. One good idea is to spread tomato sauce on the base then add roasted vegetables and cheese on top.

You can also add oregano and basil to the mixture. The cooking time for this gluten free pizza crust recipe depends on the toppings you use and how deeply you layer them. If you like, you can sprinkle some cornmeal into the baking dish before adding the dough for extra flavor.

Making a pizza crust without gluten means you will not be using regular flour. Instead the recipe calls for rice flour, xanthan gum and gluten-free yeast, along with some honey and olive oil. This dough should be kneaded, just like you would do with any other pizza dough recipe, and then you can press it into a pan and add your favorite sauce, cheese and any other gluten-free toppings you wish to use.

Even if you are making this for a crowd and only one of them is on a gluten-free diet, nobody else will be able to tell the difference because this tastes just as good as a pizza crust made with regular flour, and the thin, light density of it means it bakes to crispy perfection, so you can pick up the wedges between your thumb and finger.
