Gluten-Free Pizza Crust or Flatbread

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is for a crust that can be used for pizza or flatbreads. After 2 years of being GF, this is the best pizza crust/flatbread recipe I have. It is based on trial and error in an effort to improve other recipes. My kids say this is better than our homemade wheat flour crusts."

  1. Whisk water and sugar together in a bowl. Whisk in yeast. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Combine gluten-free flour, rice flour, Italian seasoning, xanthan gum, gelatin, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Whisk vinegar and olive oil into the yeast mixture; pour over flour mixture. Mix on high speed until a wet, sticky dough forms, about 6 minutes.
  4. Transfer dough to the prepared baking sheet. Lay another sheet of parchment paper on top; smooth out dough to fill the baking sheet. Let dough rest, about 10 minutes.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until dough puffs up, 5 to 10 minutes. Peel parchment paper off the top. Continue baking until dough is golden brown and edges are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

I made this using tom sawyer blend. I was very happy with the crust and I have tried many thin crust recipes over the past 25 years. Only suggestions are: maybe omit the xanthan if the blend ...

This is amazing crust!! Great flavor and texture. I'm a baker who had to cut out gluten. I'm relearning to bake again. I'm putting this on the charcoal grill and making a pizza. Try it, you will...
