Yeast

Baking Powder
Sugar 
Salt 
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Kitchen Equipment 

Stand Mixer with Mixing Bowl
Baking Sheet
Parchment or Wax Paper
Oven
Large Ziplock Bag

Recipe

3.5 Cups of Gluten-Free Flour Mix
3 Cups of Warm Water
2 Tablespoons of Yeast
2 Tablespoons of Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
1.5 teaspoons of Salt
1/4 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions

Before you begin

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

In your stand mixing bowl add the following

4.5 Cups of Gluten Free Flour Mix
3 Cups of Warm Water
2 Tablespoons of Yeast
2 Tablespoons of Baking Powder
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
1.5 teaspoons of Salt
1/4 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

You want the water to be around, but not exceed 110 degrees. The hot water from most kitchen sinks will achieve this. Any water hotter than 110 degrees will kill the yeast. 

Mix slowly for about ~3 minutes until the mixture is combined thoroughly.

Depending on the type of paddle in your mixer, make sure to scrape down the sides of your bowl, so you incorporate everything. 

Let the mixture rest at least an hour until the top begins to bubble. 

While the mixture rests, grab your baking sheet and parchment paper. 

Lay the parchment paper on top of the baking sheet and draw several circles. The circles should be the size you want your crust to be. 

After your mixture has set for an hour, scrape the dough into a large ziplock bag. 

Cut the tip of your bag so that you can squeeze the mixture out. 

Slowly trace the circles you made and fill the center with your dough.

Feel free to use a knife to make the top layer pretty. Keep in mind this dough will rise. As you bake, the crust will turn out how you left the top looking.

Place into your oven and bake for ~25 minutes. 

You want the crust to be firm, but not browned. You are only cooking the mixture halfway; this is as par-baking.

This is what the Crust should look like after baking 25 minutes.

After this, your crust is ready to go! 

Add your toppings just like you would a regular Pizza and enjoy! 

FAQS

What if I don’t have a Stand Mixer?

You can do this by hand, no problem!

Can I freeze the dough?

Absolutely. After you par-bake the crust, it’s perfect for freezing. Just place them in a ziplock bag and take one out when you’re ready for some pizza! 

Is Gluten-Free Crust healthier than regular crust?

No. Gluten is not the enemy; processed gluten is. Processed gluten came from highly processed foods and manufactured bread. As long as you are using our recommended unbleached flour, and making it on your own, regular crust is the way to go!
