Are you in the mood for pizza but are gluten intolerant or allergic to wheat? You can make your own delicious gluten-free pizza crust, top it with pizza sauce, shredded almond cheese, and veggies and/or sausage.
This gluten-free pizza crust recipe (wheat-free pizza crust recipe) is from Monica Levin’s Better Health Cookbook: Wheat-Free & Lactose Free.
Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipe
- 2 cups water
- 1 tbsp raw sugar
- 1 tbsp yeast
- 2 ½ cups rice flour
- ½ cup potato starch
- 1 ½ tsp guar gum
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 3 tbsp whole psyllium husks
- 3 tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 400oF.
Place water and raw sugar in a saucepan and heat until lukewarm. Remove from heat and sprinkle yeast over the surface. Let stand 2 to 5 minutes.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour in yeast mixture and olive oil. Mix well. Let stand a few minutes to allow the moisture to be absorbed.
Sprinkle the counter top with rice flour and turn the dough onto the floured counter. Knead, adding additional rice flour if necessary, for a few minutes.
Press onto a pizza pan (one 15″ or two smaller), top with pizza toppings, using almond, rice, or soy cheese rather than mozzarella.
Bake on the bottom rack for approximately 20 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and stiff enough to lift off the pan with a spatula.
