World’s Best Gluten Free Pizza Crust
If you know me, you know that I absolutely love pizza! If a restaurant has gluten free pizza, you better believe that I’m ordering it. I’ve had a few great gluten free pizzas, but the majority of the time they honestly never really come close to the authentic chewy pizza crust that I used to love. I found this amazing gluten free pizza flour on Amazon (click here). This is the stuff they use in Italy and it is absolutely amazing! It’s a little pricey, but one bag makes about 5 large pizzas, so that comes out to be just $3 for a big family size pizza. So much cheaper than eating out and it’s so much better!
- 3 grams yeast
- 6 grams olive oil
- 160 grams warm water
- pinch of sugar
- 200 g Fioreglut gluten free flour
- 7 grams salt
- In a mixer bowl, mix together the yeast, warm water, olive oil, and sugar. Allow these to sit together for about 10 – 15 minutes until bubbly and foamy.
- Add in the flour and salt. Mix with the dough hook on low for several minutes. Scrap down the sides with a spatula if needed. Mix for another minute until the dough comes together into a ball. (The dough should resemble a smooth thick regular pizza dough.)
- Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it sit for an hour in a warm place. It should almost double in size.
- Preheat oven to 550 degrees F. Place a pizza stone or an upside down baking sheet in the oven to preheat as well. (This will give you an awesome bake on the crust.)
- If you have a silicone mat use that, otherwise grab some parchment paper and flour it with a little of the Fioreglut flour, or use tapioca flour. Place the dough ball on the floured silicone mat or parchment paper. Put a little olive oil on your hands and flatten the dough into a large circle. Flatten the dough until it is very thin. (I stretch it out until it takes up the entire size of my cookie sheet or pizza stone.) See picture below.
- Load on your toppings!
- Place the silicone mat or parchment paper directly on the pizza stone or cookie sheet. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until crust is golden brown and your cheese is gooey.
