One of the most difficult things for me when I went gluten free was eliminating pizza from my diet. It's not that I eat it all the time, but every once in a while on a Friday or Saturday night, it's a nice treat. With this recipe you can make your own dough and enjoy a delicious home made pie!
Recipe type: Dinner
Cuisine: American
Serves: serves 2
  • 1½ cups gluten free flour (I use Namaste brand and highly recommend it)
  • ¼ tsp. active dry yeast
  • ¾ tsp. Himalayan salt
  • ¾ cup water, cold
  • 1 tbs. olive oil (for greasing pan)
  • ⅓ cup of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 4 oz. mozzarella or Italian blend cheese
  • any toppings you like to add to make it your own
  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, yeast and salt.
  2. Stir in cold water and combine well.
  3. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap.
  4. Allow dough to rest on the counter for 12 to 18 hours (it will increase in size).
  5. Sprinkle the dough with a little gluten free flour.
  6. Lightly stir until it forms a ball.
  7. Grease a 10 inch cast iron skillet with olive oil (make sure to do the sides too).
  8. Place the dough ball in the greased skillet, spreading close to the edge with oiled fingers. It's ok if it doesn't spread to the edges.
  9. NOTE: If you like a thin crust like I do, use ¾ of the dough.
  10. Cover the pan with a lid or plate and let rest for an hour.
  11. Preheat oven to highest temperature (mine is 550 degrees).
  12. Add sauce, cheese and toppings to the dough.
  13. Start cooking the pizza on a stove top burner on medium high for 3 minutes (longer for thick crust).
  14. Place pan in preheated oven and bake for 12 minutes at 550 degrees. If your oven temperature is lower, cook and additional 2-4 minutes or until golden.
  15. Use care when removing from the oven as the pizza will be extremely hot! Enjoy!!
