Gluten-Free Pizza Crust or Flatbread


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 large crust


  • 1 cup very warm water

  • ½ teaspoon white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons yeast

  • 2 cups gluten-free flour blend

  • ½ cup rice flour

  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum

  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  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.
