Pizza is my comfort food. Ask anyone who is close to me, and they will all be able to tell you that I’m a pizza-lover through and through. The more veggies, the better. We have pizza at least once a week in our house, so in going gluten free, I had to find a good pizza crust recipe. I haven’t ever really found one that I was super in love with, so I decided to make my own. This is for a thin and crispy crust.
3/4 cup almond flour
3/4 cup all purpose gluten free baking flour
1/4 cup arrowroot powder [or tapioca flour]
1 TBS baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup warm water [plus more, if needed]
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 TBS pizza seasoning [optional]
Pizza sauce and toppings of your choice
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix the yeast with the warm water. Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add in water and yeast mixture a little at a time, stirring to wet the dough. You want it to form a ball that you can handle, so don’t add too much water, although you may need a little more than a cup if you cannot get all of your dough together. Spray a round pan with nonstick spray, then press the dough out on it, working from the middle out. It helps to take some gluten free flour and sprinkle the top of the dough to keep it from sticking to your fingers. Bake in the oven for 20 mins. You’ll see the crust shrink some, and it’ll start to get browned and cracked. Turn the oven down to 375 degrees. Remove the crust, and then add your sauce and favorite toppings. Put back in the oven and back until cheese is melted, or your toppings are cooked through. Sit down, and enjoy your delicious pizza!
