A gluten-free pizza recipe that’s incredibly good, thin, crispy and super easy to make. Topped with fresh tomatoes, bell pepper and mozzarella cheese.. this pizzeria style pizza is a must try, especially if you have gluten free eaters in your life.
- 1 small can of tomato paste
- 1/2 cup water
- equal pinches salt, pepper, dried basil, oregano, thyme and garlic powder.
- Mozzarella cheese (I used Daiya to keep this recipe dairy-free)
- Fresh tomatoes
- Yellow bell pepper
- White onion
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a small bowl, combine yeast and 3/4 cup warm water - about 110 degrees (too hot and it will kill the yeast). Set for 5 minutes to activate. Sprinkle in 1 Tbsp of the sugar a few minutes in.
- In a separate bowl, combine gluten free flour blend, salt, baking powder and remaining 2 Tbsp sugar. Whisk until well combined.
- Make a well in the dry mixture and add the yeast mixture. Add the olive oil and additional 1/2 cup warm water before stirring. Using a wooden spoon, stir it all together until well combined.
- Lightly coat a baking sheet or pizza stone with non-stick spray and plop your dough down. Using your hands and a little brown rice flour if it gets too sticky, work from the middle and push to spread/flatten the dough out to the edge. You want it to be pretty thin - less than 1/4 inch.
- Put the pizza in the oven to pre-bake for roughly 25-30 minutes, or until it begins to look dry. Cracks may appear, but that's normal and totally fine.
- Remove from oven and spread generously with your favorite pizza sauce, cheese and desired toppings (pepperoni is perfect for this recipe too).
- Pop back in oven for another 20-25 minutes, or until the crust edge looks golden brown and the toppings are warm and bubbly.
- Cut immediately and serve with your favorite Chianti wine. Reheats well the next day in the oven or microwave.
- If your dough gets finicky or sticky when spreading out, just sprinkle on a little more brown rice flour. That will keep it from sticking.
The gluten free flour blend is important in this recipe, but feel free to try your own blend.
If you’re not going gluten free, just sub it with all-purpose flour.
Dry + Wet = Dough!
You can use your preferred pizza sauce or use my favorite simple sauce recipe :))
So proud it looks so good.. and it tasted good too!
Serve this with your favorite wine and don’t forget to share :))
