I’ve had several requests for a good gluten-free pizza crust recipe. Luckily, gluten-free pizza crust is really easy. The gluten-free dough doesn’t require kneading and if you use pizza crust yeast there is no proofing. I make it with sorghum and millet flour as part of my quest to use less rice flour.
Mix up the dough, form it in the pan and send it straight to the oven. No kneading or proofing required. No rolling or spinning the crust up in the air. This is gluten-free dough, so all that goes out the window!
If you want to make pizza but don’t have time to make a crust from scratch, there are several really good ready-made gluten-free pizza crusts. I love Kinnikinnick’s frozen personal crusts for a thicker crust that reminds me of a pan pizza. Rudi’s and Udi’s frozen crusts are good if you want a thinner crust.
This recipe calls for several types of flour. Using an all purpose gluten-free flour blend doesn’t work so well because the pizza dough needs a higher protein blend. So I recommend sticking with the flours as called for in the recipe below..
Gluten-Free Pizza Toppings
Load them up with your own toppings and you have a great gluten-free pizza. Don’t be afraid to be creative with your toppings. I like to rummage through the refrigerator and use leftover veggies, chicken even leftover roasted potatoes. For a change of pace I love using pesto as the sauce. Asparagus. sauteed onion or shallot and feta is a perfect combo for this gluten-free pizza crust. This pizza crust can even be topped with some sweet ingredients to make a dessert pizza.
I topped my veggie pizza with:
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce mixed with 1 tsp dried thyme, 1 large minced garlic clove, and 1/4 tsp chili flakes
- a layer of shredded parmesan cheese
- 2 cups chopped kale, wilted in the microwave for 30 seconds
- 10 yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
- 4 oz shredded chicken
- 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
- another layer of shredded parmesan
I topped my asparagus pizza with:
- 1/3 c pesto
- 10 stalks steamed asparagus
- 1/4 of an onion, sliced and sauteed
- 1 c feta cheese
