Best Gluten Free Pizza Crust!
This gluten free pizza crust is soft in the inside, has a crispy crust and soft and flexible. It is absolutely perfect! Paleo/Gluten Free/Grain Free/Dairy Free
I have been highly disappointed with the gluten free pizza crusts that I have eaten at restaurants because they are either too hard, too thin and almost always have burnt edges. For the last 3 years I have been working on the perfect gluten free pizza crust recipe. This is it! This is the best gluten free pizza crust! It is soft yet crispy, and has the perfect center. Leftover pizza reheats up perfectly in only 5 minutes. It tastes just as good as it did fresh out of the oven!
Another great thing about this gluten free pizza crust is that you can divide the dough into four balls and make 2 pizza’s during the week and save the rest of the dough for the weekend. I stored 2 balls of gluten free dough in the fridge in a zip-lock bag and dusted my surface with extra tapioca flour when rolling. Oh, how I love this gluten free pizza dough!
I rolled it out to 1/4 inch thick to make a gluten free New York Style pizza crust. I baked it for 10 minutes; it puffs up really nice along the edges. Then, add your toppings and bake another 8 minutes, it’s really that easy!
I topped this gluten free pizza crust with marinara, arugula, roasted corn, bell peppers and garlic slices. Then I baked it for 8 minutes and drizzled it with gluten free bar-b-q sauce before slicing. Yum! I made a plain cheese pizza for my 7 year old daughter and boy did she love it! She gave it a 10 out of 10 rating!
I used blanched almond flour, tapioca flour and potato starch. The potato starch is what pulled all the ingredients together, it lighten’s up the mix. I also used a Pizza Stone that I got from Amazon which I absolutely LOVE for making pizza’s!! I put my pizza on parchment paper and slide it onto the stone for an easy clean-up.
I did not make a perfect circle when I rolled out the dough. The edges were a bit wavy and it gave this pizza an artisanal look. This is now my favorite gluten free pizza crust recipe for Friday pizza night! I snuggle up on the couch with my honey and our 2 kids, watch a movie and have pizza.
