Easy, Gluten-Free Pizza Dough Recipe

Gluten sensitivities can be a hassle, and can sometimes stop people from enjoying good food that is offered to them or that they want to make themselves. Fortunately, there’s a treasure trove of resources available to make awesome recipes without gluten, and pizza is no exception! Read on to learn about how to make pizza dough, gluten-free.

What makes a recipe gluten-free?

Before attempting to cook gluten free pizza, it helps to be familiar with what gluten is and how to avoid it. Gluten is a mix of proteins found in grains like wheat, barley, and rye, according to the Celiac Foundation. It’s gluten that gives grain-based foods their shape and texture, but gluten can also cause illness to people with gluten sensitivities.

Gluten-free cooking involves the use of grains free of gluten, and the incorporation of a non-allergenic binding agent to restore the food’s shape and texture without the risk of a negative reaction. Taste of Home has some information on gluten-free cooking centered around the use of gluten-free or rice-based flours, and binding agents like xanthan gum or arrowroot powder.

Making the crust

A gluten-free crust doesn’t have to mean sacrificing an easy pizza dough recipe. Rather, you can try what the ladies at The Minimalist Baker did and simply substitute the wheat flour used in the dough for a gluten-free alternative. The end result might be a little more delicate than a traditional pizza crust, but this is made up for by the dough’s tendency to become perfectly crisp on the outside and tender, yet firm, in the middle.

The Gluten Free Palate advises something similar, recommending either a 1-to-1 gluten free flour mix, like the one offered by Bob’s Red Mill, or your own experimentation with rice-based flours and other alternatives. This recipe can even be made vegan with the replacement of the egg with flax egg, and cheese with dairy-free cheese or butter alternatives.

Gluten-free toppings

Once the gluten free pizza crust is finished, you’ll want to top it off with something delicious. Don’t spoil your perfect gluten-free dough with the wrong ingredients, though; instead, follow some advice from Deiorios and use their recommendations for gluten free toppings, including:

  • Gluten-free cheeses (mozzarella, gorgonzola, cheddar, feta, and many more)
  • Gluten-free meats (Pork products, chicken, sausage, even shrimp!)
  • Almost all vegetables

    Try these options in your home pizza oven for either you or someone you love who’s on bad terms with gluten. After all, there’s no better way to feel better than with pizza; especially the kind you can eat!
