A gluten free pizza
I’m not gonna lie; this recipe is ridiculously time and effort intensive. But oh, is it ever worth it.

  • How to cook a pizza. Gluten Free Pizza - Step 1
    Step 1

    Heat milk, butter, and salt over medium heat until it begins to boil. Remove from heat, stir in tapioca flour very quickly, using a fork, not a whisk, unless you want to spend a while removing dough from the whisk with a fork. Whatever knits your stitch. Transfer to a mixing bowl and let cool. Seriously. Walk away. Go knit or something. You don’t want to burn your hands trying to knead too-hot dough. Ask me how I know this.

    Once it’s cool enough to handle, slowly knead in eggs and parmesan until the entire mixture is smooth. I usually alternate bits of egg and bits of parmesan to make it easier to handle. Think it’s smooth enough? Keep kneading. No really. It needs to be completely lump free.

    After it’s completely smooth, add the flour and any seasonings you might like in your crust. Knead again until the flour is incorporated. Stick the dough in the fridge for half an hour or so. It needs to be chilled through, and DO NOT skip this step unless you want a gummy crust, which I learned the hard way. Now would probably be a good time to turn your oven on to 400F, and lightly (lightly!) grease one 12″ circular pan.

    Step 4

    Spread dough into pan carefully, then puncture with a fork a couple times to prevent big giant air bubbles from forming. You don’t need as many fork marks as I have, it was just very satisfying to stab the dough that had taken up half my afternoon. Bake the crust for 20 minutes or until lightly browned on top, rotating your pan around at the halfway point if your oven’s like mine and things cook faster toward the back of the oven than they do toward the front.

    Step 5

    Add sauce, cheese, and your toppings of choice (I put my toppings under the cheese so that it melts better, also so that the unsuspecting are assaulted by the flavor of pepperoni) and stick back in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and browned a bit.

I have problems with gluten, and I love pizza!!! Thank you for the gluten-free pizza recipe. It really inspires me to bake my own foods, whether it's in the microwave them or not! :>

Hey I have Celiac Disease!! I mean it isnt exciting to have or anything but after being diagnosed and getting over the whole "oh I cant eat gluten" it actually isnt that bad. I love pizza and have a recipe of my own that I am planning to post up soon.

My father can't eat things with gluten making most of the food in our home gluten free, so when I saw this I was happy to see that others new about it. I thank you for the inspiration to think up new gluten free recipes.

Thanks for posting this recipe. We have a friend who can only have gluten free things to eat and when he comes down for a visit, I don't know what to make him and he loves pizza!
I have psoriasis and I have heard that people with psoriasis should eat gluten free meals. I'll make the pizza and see if I could switch over to gluten free.
Your pizza looks just like my homemade ones! Yummy!
