Making a gluten-free pizza that tastes good can be challenging.
There are lots of mistakes people make when they try to create a gluten-free pizza on their own.
This recipe will teach you everything you need to know to avoid the pitfalls of gluten-free pizza making!
If you’re looking for a pre-made gluten-free pizza dough, I recommend using Trader Joe’s brand.
- 1 gluten-free dough (dough of choice or homemade from scratch)
- 1/2 cup red sauce
- mozzarella cheese (to your liking)
- Take pizza dough out of fridge an hour prior to cooking in order to let it come to room temperature.
- Place stone in the oven
- Turn oven on max temperature
- Turn oven on convection
- Place dough on flat surface that’s been lined with some flour
- Stretch the dough by hand or with a pie pin. the downside to gluten free dough is that you can’t get the cornicione to automatically form. The cornicione is the edge or lip of a pizza. aka the crust. you can manually create one by curling up the edges after the dough has been fully stretched. dough should be about 7 or so inches at this point.
- Flip dough over and stretch it out again. again, form the crust. the dough should be closer to 10 inches in diameter now
- Add sauce.
- Add cheese
- Add fresh basil
- Drizzle olive oil over the top
- Place on the pizza stone until cooked. the starches in the gluten free dough mixture take longer to cook, especially in an oven rather than in a wood burning stove. cook for 15 minutes or so, give or take.
