Gluten-Free Pizza Base Recipe

One of our team members, Rachael, has been using this recipe for a few months and is really happy with the results!

This recipe makes 2 large pizzas, easily doubles for more dough.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Tbsp dry
    active yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup
    warm water (divided)
  • 1-2 Tbsp
    sugar (divided)
  • 3 cups
    gluten-free plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp olive
    oil
  • 1 Tbsp
    Xanthum gum (optional for chewier base)

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 180C. In a small bowl, combine yeast and
    3/4 cup warm water. Leave to activate for 5 mins. Sprinkle in 1 Tbsp of the
    sugar a few mins in.

  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and
    remaining sugar. Whisk until well combined.
  • Make a well in the dry mixture and add yeast mixture,
    olive oil and additional 1/2 cup warm water. Combine well.
  • Knead dough on a floured surface until no longer sticky.
  • Divide, place both hunks onto reusable baking liner on
    pizza tray. Use hands to work dough from the middle to the edges or roll it
    pretty thin with rolling pin/empty jar.
  • Pre-bake the crust for 20 minutes or until it looks dry.
  • Remove from oven. The crust will be surprisingly hard at
    this stage. Cracks are normal and totally ok. Spread generously with sauce and
    desired toppings. Pop back in oven for another 15-20 minutes.
