Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Gluten Free Pizza Dough is an easy and delicious recipe.  This gluten free dough really satisfied my craving for a softer pizza crust!

The secret is a really wet dough that you parbake first and then finish off the cooking process once your favourite toppings are added.

The yield will depend on how big you want to make each pizza.  If you are the only one eating gluten free you could make a few small dough circles.

My daughter is also gluten free so I made two 12″ dough circles that I topped off with her favourite toppings.

Finally a crust with a bit of depth and a softer texture!

We will be using this Gluten Free Pizza Dough often. I think it would be good brushed with olive oil and garlic for a side as well.

To begin making Gluten Free Pizza Dough I dumped some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, salt and quick-rise yeast into my stand mixer.

After mixing the dry ingredients I slowly added in some water while the dough hook was still spinning on low.

Once my ingredients were combined I let it mix on medium speed for 6 minutes.

After 6 minutes I covered the mixing bowl with some plastic wrap and let it sit for about 1 1/2 hours or until when opening a spot on the dough I could see the bubbles.

Then I covered two pizza pans with parchment paper and sprayed both of them well with cooking spray.

I divided the dough between the two baking sheets.  At this point you can decide to make smaller rounds for individual pizzas if you prefer.

I used a spoon to spread the dough into 12″ circles.  I made them a little higher around the edges.

Once the pizza dough was spread out, I placed both pizza pans in a preheated 325F oven for 35 – 40 minutes to parbake.

After removing the dough from the oven you can use immediately or cool and freeze.

I chose to add my favourite pizza toppings to one round and freeze the other one for the next family pizza night.

Finish baking in a 400F oven for 10 -15 minutes after you add the toppings.

Sometimes I will cover the edges like you do for a pie crust when I do the final bake so it does not get too crispy around the edges.

Cooking again after adding the toppings.

Remove from oven.

Slice into serving size pieces.  I usually slice into 8 servings.

This Gluten Free Pizza Dough was a real treat for both myself and my daughter.  It was the perfect thickness and texture.

Crispy edges and soft dough under the toppings will be a delight for your palate.  

I know you will love this Gluten Free Pizza Dough as much as we do!  It is also great reheated the next day in the microwave!

I'm going to give this a try for my daughter. Do you think it would work as a calzone dough (which is pizza dough anyway?) I was thinking I could parbake then add filling and fold, but I'm not sure how I would get it to stay shut and not lose the fillings. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi Wendy, The only idea that comes to mind right now is to maybe not parbake it as much so it is easy to fold....I am going to play around with this recipe myself to see what else will work because it turned out great. If you do the full parbake you would definitely need to clamp it together somehow because it is only a few minutes away from being fully cooked. Let us know what you try and how it turns out for you. Take care, Kathleen
