Easy Terrific Gluten Free Vegan Pizza Recipe


I made pizza with my kids a few times recently, and my kids have loved the recipe I've been using. Today when we went to make pizza, I decided to have Ike practice reading the recipe I was using, and he noted, as we went through the recipe, that I wasn't actually following the recipe I had written. "You should rewrite the recipe the way you actually make it, so that other people can also have this pizza recipe, since it's the most delicious recipe" he told me.

And so, here it is.

It's not that different from the original. But it's cheaper. And easier. And its egg free, so it is allergy friendly and works as a good gluten free and vegan pizza crust.

Highly recommended.

And quite easy.

P.S. A few times recently I bought gluten free pizza at restaurants. The crusts were so awful, they tasted just like eggy stuff, and not like a real pizza crust. It was such a pleasure to actually eat good pizza crust, made with ingredients I had in the house, and that was easy to make. This recipe is a keeper.

Easy Terrific Gluten Free Vegan Pizza Recipe

Ingredients:
2 cups rice flour, any kind (I've used white rice flour, brown rice flour, and short grain rice flour here)
2 cups potato starch, corn starch, or tapioca starch
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
2 teaspoons garlic powder
5 teaspoons dry yeast
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1-2 tablespoons date syrup, jaggery syrup, honey, or sugar
3-4 tablespoons oil
1 1/2- 1 3/4 cups warm water, as needed

Instructions:

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together until uniform.

2. Add the syrup and oil, and then add the water a bit at a time, mixing well, to incorporate all the flour. Add enough water until you have a great workable dough that isn't sticky.

3. Roll out on parchment paper, either between two pieces of parchment paper or with the rolling pin directly onto the dough. Alternatively, you can use your hands to press it down to a uniform thickness. I like to keep my crust thin.

4. Bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for 4 minutes. It will end up cracking a bit on the top, and that is totally fine.

5. Remove from oven, spread with tomato sauce and toppings of choice. If keeping your pizza completely vegan, I suggest using this vegan cheese sauce recipe and drizzling it on top of your toppings.

6. Return to the oven and bake until your toppings are cooked, and your cheese, if using, is fully melted.

Enjoy!

  1. Just curious, does this dough need to spend any time rising before baking?
    Thanks!
