Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Pizza Crust

This recipe works very well for a pizza crust, especially because it’s gluten free and yeast free. I adapted it from this recipe on imglutenfree.com (that website has awesome gluten-free recipes that you should check out if you’re gluten free or considering it). This recipe makes enough pizza to feed my large family and we usually have leftovers. I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as we have!

(By the way, we use these baking sheets. We bought two sets and use the two larger sized sheets for this pizza.)

Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Pizza Crust

Yield: Makes enough crust for 2-10x14 inch pizzas

Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free Pizza Crust

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cups white rice flour
  • 1 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • gluten-free rolled oats for sprinkling on baking sheets (see notes)
  • olive oil (about 4 tablespoons) for oiling baking sheets

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl mix together water, 2 tablespoons oil, and honey.
  3. In another larger bowl add dry ingredients (except for rolled oats) and mix.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well to combine.
  5. Oil two 12x16 rimmed baking sheets using about 2 tablespoons olive oil for each. Next sprinkle rolled oats evenly onto each sheet.
  6. Divide dough in half and spread half onto each baking sheet using your hands. (Oats will get pushed towards the sides of the sheet but don't worry about it:) It will look like it is so little dough on each sheet, but just work with it and spread it out thinner and thinner (making sure crust doesn't have holes in it) until it gets about an inch away from each side of the sheet.
  7. At this point you can top the pizza with whatever you want! For one of the pizzas pictured I put on my easy homemade pizza sauce (which I hope to post in the future), then green peppers, olives, ground beef, grated cheese (we use Manchego cheese from Costco, made from sheep's milk), and lastly fresh spinach! Mmmm…
  8. Bake until edges are slightly golden, about 20-22 minutes. Don't worry if the oats get burnt, that doesn't necessarily mean the pizza is burnt.
  9. Slice and serve! Delicious!

Notes: I sprinkle the oats on the baking sheets so the pizza won't stick to the sheets (especially the edges), but you can try making this recipe without the rolled oats and it may work out just fine. Then again, it may not:)

  1. This pizza looks gorgeous! I love the idea of using fresh spinach (cause, yes, sometimes pizza needs to be a bit healthier). Thanks so much for linking back to my blog in your post!

    Love your website as well! You have such a beautiful family! Like your kids, my sisters and I were homeschooled and raised out in the country. I wouldn’t trade my childhood for anything! There were, admittedly, a few nightmarish experiences with Easy Grammar (I’m sure your kids can relate) but now I’m so grateful for my Mom’s patience and perseverance in homeschooling us, little brats that we were. :)
