If you’ve ever been craving a delicious pizza with just the right amount of sauce, cheese and toppings, you will relate to this dilemma.

If a delicious gluten free pizza crust is what you want, then that is what you’ll get with this recipe. It’s easy to assemble and comes together wonderfully to make the most chewy, mouthwatering pizza you’ve ever tasted.

Here is the recipe for an amazing gluten free pizza crust…
Gluten Free Pizza Crust Recipe
3 cups Brown Rice Flour
¼ cup potato starch
¼ cup tapioca starch
½ teaspoon Knox Gelatin
1 teaspoon onion salt or regular salt
2 ¾ teaspoons guar gum
½ teaspoon brown sugar
1 package gluten-free Rapid Rise yeast
1 ½ cups warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
In a small bowl or measuring cup mix ½ teaspoon brown sugar into ½ cup warm water until dissolved. Add in the package of dry yeast and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl add the remaining dry ingredients and set aside.
Take the remaining 1 cup of warm water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil and place in a large mixing bowl. Whisk together, adding a little of dry ingredients until the mixture is smooth. Then add in the yeast mixture and whisk until smooth.
Add the rest of the dry ingredients and work until it forms a ball.
Place the ball of dough on a floured surface and knead until it’s no longer sticky (adding more flour as needed).
Place into a lightly greased mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rest for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and place onto a lightly greased pizza pan or stone of your choice. A smaller pan will yield a thicker crust. Large pan will have a thinner crust. Lightly poke the dough with a fork and place into the oven.
Bake the crust for 5-7 minutes or until soft to touch.
Remove the pizza crust from the oven and turn the temperature up to 425F.
Add sauce and toppings of your choice. Return it to the oven and bake at 425F until cheese in the very middle is melted or golden brown.
Slice and enjoy!
