One Batch Makes Enough Gluten Free
Pizza Crust to Fill A Pizza Pan
Use to make Roasted Veggie White Pizza or Vegan Gluten Free Pizza recipes found on HealthTastesGood.com or any other pizza of your preference.
This gluten free pizza crust recipe also works great to use for bread making. I have made loaves of bread using this recipe and just adding some herbs of choice. My favorites are thyme, rosemary and sage.
You can also use a flax egg to make this gluten free pizza crust. Instead of the chia the recipe calls for, just replace with one tablespoon of ground flax instead. The flax works just as well as the chia. They both are full of nutrients and they both gel up equally well when they are ground up and water is added to them.
Ingredients Needed for Gluten Free Pizza Crust
2 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp coconut sugar
¾ cup warm water
1 chia egg (1 TBS ground chia mixed with 3 teaspoons of water and set aside to develop a gel-like consistency – about 3 minutes)
1 TBS olive oil
2 cups gluten free baking flour
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
½ teaspoon sea salt
How to Prepare Gluten Free Pizza Crust
- Combine yeast, coconut sugar and warm water
in a small bowl and let sit for a few minutes
In the meantime, mix the gluten free flour,
xanthan gum and sea salt in a separate bowl until combined
Add the chia egg, olive oil and yeast mixture together
Mix well and add to the dry mixture
Combine the ingredients and mix together until you have a dough
You will need to work with your hands to get the dough really formed and ready to use
Form into a ball and let sit for a few minutes until ready to use
To Roll Out the Dough
Since gluten free dough does not have the same elasticity as dough made with gluten, it may get a bit sticky.
A trick I have learned through practice is to use a piece of parchment paper to line my pizza stone
I find that if I lay the gluten free dough on a large piece of parchment paper, and then place another piece of parchment on top of the dough, I can roll it out to the size of the pizza stone without it breaking up
You may need to use your hands a bit to trim and press the crust onto the stone so that it fits properly
