Gluten Free pizza #Recipe

Guest post (recipe)

Since my daughters diagnosis we have been trying to perfect some of her favourite recipes making them into gluten free options for her and our family. One this she was missing was pizza. Not matter how many recipes we tried the pizza didn’t taste right. So we did some experimenting and finally this time we got the perfect crust recipe.

3/4 cup gluten-free all purpose baking flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup tapioca starch
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast

1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon white sugar


  • Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a 15-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. Stir the all-purpose baking flour,potato startch, cornstarch, tapioca starch, baking powder, xanthan gum, Italian seasoning and salt together in a bowl; set aside.
  • Dissolve 1 teaspoon of white sugar in the lukewarm water in a small bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over top, and set aside until foamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Beat the egg in a separate bowl with the olive oil, vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar, and the garlic until smooth. 
  • Once the yeast is foamy, whisk it into the egg mixture, then stir in the flour until no dry lumps remain. Press the dough into the prepared pan, leaving the outer edge slightly thicker than the center.
  • To par bake: Cook in the preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes until the dough has risen and has slightly firmed.
  • Once topped with your favorite toppings, continue baking at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) until the crust is golden brown, 10 to 20 minutes. Remove the pizza from the pan, and cook directly on the oven rack for 5 minutes to crisp crust, if desired.
