We shopped high and low for a perfect gluten free pizza crust. Now, this recipe has replaced them all. Its so easy to make and will be your go-to for all things pizza.
What you will need:
- 1 1/2 cups gluten free flour
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (if your flour doesn’t already include it)
- 1 tablespoon sugar (necessary for the yeast activation)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 packet gluten free dry yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
In a medium bowl, add the packet of yeast, oil, water and sugar. Mix together and notice bubbles forming. Set aside for 10min.
In the meantime, in a large bowl combine the flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt.
After the ten minutes, add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and mix. The dough will be wet. make sure the ingredients are properly mixed and then cover with a lid or saran wrap and set in the fridge for 30min.
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
Remove the dough from the fridge and spread with greased hands on a pizza pan. If you are going to be baking on a pizza stone, instead spread the dough on a floured pizza peel. You want to spread the dough so that its fairly thin all around but slightly thicker on the crust area so that you get the deep dish results. Let the pizza sit as is for 15min.
Once the dough has sat, place pizza pan in the oven (or transfer from peel to stone) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove the pizza and top with your favourite ingredients. Bake again for another 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven and enjoy 🙂
