Free Your Baking Space Of Gluten
When crafting any gluten free recipe, it’s important to assess your cooking environment. Celiac disease and gluten allergies can be triggered by even the smallest amount of gluten. Have you recently prepared foods with wheat flour in your kitchen? Before you begin crafting your dough, it’s important to fully wipe down all baking surfaces and remove any gluten-containing products that are nearby. Cross-contamination can be very dangerous for those who are gluten intolerant and you’ll want to avoid it at all costs.

Don’t Substitute Or Omit Ingredients
When learning how to make a gluten free pizza crust, it’s important that you follow the recipe. Gluten free flours are very different than traditional flours and each ingredient is important when it comes to creating the right flavor and texture of pizza crust. The gluten found in most traditional homemade pizza dough works to create the texture of the dough and helps it rise correctly. Since you’ll be working with a dough that’s free of gluten, many recipes will include important gluten substitutes like whey protein, rice flour and even garbanzo beans to help mimic the same texture found in traditional doughs. Make sure you do your research and gather the correct ingredients before you start making your homemade gluten free pizza dough.
In this delicious gluten free pizza dough recipe, a mixture of garbanzo bean flour, white rice flour, potato starch, cornstarch and xanthan gum is used to mimic the texture and flavor of traditional pizza crust. Following this mixture accurately will create a crispy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside pizza crust that can also be used to make soft doughy rolls or even a savory stuffed calzone!
Understand The Importance Of Yeast
In any recipe, yeast can be used to help give rise to your dough. Yeast creates gas that, when cooked, allows your dough to expand. This air helps the inside of your pizza crust stay soft and chewy, while the heat from the oven creates a browned crispy outside. Because there is no gluten, gluten free dough often lacks the structure that most wheat flours provide. The amount of yeast needed to create that structure will vary per recipe, and many recipes may call for other ingredients that may not commonly be found in pizza dough to help create that structure.

- 2 TBSP Olive Oil
- Water, up to ¼ cup as needed
- Cornmeal for dusting pan
Combine the water, yeast and honey and allow to sit for 5 minutes or until active and bubbly. While waiting, prepare the egg replacer according to package directions.
In a large bowl of a stand up mixer, combine the millet flour, rice flour, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine. Next add the egg replacer , olive oil and yeast mixture. Blend on medium using a dough hook. Add additional water as needed starting with a tablespoon at a time. Knead in your mixer for 5 minutes.
Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with a towel. If you want to bake your pizzas later, place the dough in the fridge for a slow rise. If you are baking this sooner, either leave in a warm draft free place in your kitchen or place in your oven with the light on. Allow to rise until doubled in size. This will take 1 to 2 hours depending on how warm your area is. The oven only takes about an hour.
When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightley dust your parchment paper with cornmeal. Divide the dough into 2 even pieces. Roll the dough into a ball, then with wet hands flatten the dough into the shape you desire. Place in the dough in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Top as you like and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until your cheese is browned and bubbly and your crust is golden brown.

Gluten Free Sourdough Pizza Crust Faqs
Thin Crust or Thick Crust Pizza?
Depending on how you shape the dough will depend on whether youll create a thick or thin crust pizza. I typically go for a thinner crust by shaping the edges a little narrower . However for a thicker crust, shape the pizza a bit smaller and allow for a little bulk around the edges.
What Kind of Pizza Pan to Use?
To bake the pizza, you can use either a pizza stone and/or the back of a sheet pan or one of each. When baking multiple pizzas, preheating the pan or stone will help create a crispy crust. You can use either because they both produce similar results with sourdough gluten free pizza dough.
Is the Pizza Crust Freezer Friendly?
Yes! There are two ways to freeze: 1. Freeze the dough balls in freezer bags or freeze the par baked pizza crust. Freezing the dough is convenient, however, it looses some of its leavening power and the final texture of the dough is compromised. 2. Freeze the par baked crust. This is the method I prefer because its super easy to thaw, top and bake in short order.
Is Sourdough Pizza Crust Gluten Free?
Yes and no. It depends on the sourdough starter and flours used in the recipe. If gluten free flours are used to make a starter and pizza dough, then sourdough pizza crust is gluten free. However, if gluten full flours are used to make the starter and pizza dough, then the pizza crust is not gluten free.

Add Toppings And Bake
Once your gluten-free pizza crust is par-baked, crank up the oven to 450º F and then add your sauce, cheese and toppings, leaving room around the edge of the crust.

Is your mouth watering yet?
Just wait until you take a bite. This crust is doughy and the polenta adds a nice crunch. Everything just tastes so good together!

You Mention A Pizza Stone In Your Directions I Don’t Have One
First, I highly recommend getting a pizza stone if you don’t have one. It really makes a huge difference when you make gluten-free pizza.
But no worries. If you don’t have one, simply use a heavy baking sheet.
If you don’t have a heavy baking sheet then you can use a cookie sheet. Let it preheat in the oven just as you would a pizza stone.
You can do this before you make your gluten-free pizza dough.
