Try this fabulous wheat-free pizza crust and see just how great this cookbook is!

Wheat-Free Pizza Crust

  • 1 tablespoon dry yeast
  • 2/3 cup brown rice flour or garbanzo/fava bean flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk powder or non-dairy powder
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder (Knox)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2/3 cup warm water (110º)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • Cooking spray
  • Extra rice flour for sprinkling
  • Toppings of your choice
    Available at health food stores

Preheat oven to 425º. In medium mixer bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend the yeast, flours, dry milk powder, xanthan gum, salt, gelatin powder, and Italian seasoning on low speed. Add warm water, sugar, oil, and vinegar.

Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. (If the mixer bounces around the bowl, the dough is too stiff. Add water if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters.) The dough will resemble soft bread dough. Put mixture on 12-inch nonstick pizza pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Liberally sprinkle rice flour onto dough, then press dough into pan, continuing to sprinkle dough with flour to prevent sticking to your hands. Make edges thicker to hold the toppings.

Bake pizza crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Top Pizza Crust with your preferred toppings. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until top is nicely browned. Serves 6 (1 slice per serving).
