To Make Crust:

1 tablespoon dry yeast

2/3 cup brown rice flour or garbanzo/fava bean flour

1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons tapioca flour

2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

2/3 cup warm milk or non-dairy liquid

1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon cider vinegar

extra rice flour for sprinkling

To Make Sauce:

1 can tomato sauce

1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves

1/2 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary

1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

Toppings of your choice


To Make Sauce:

Combine all ingredients in small saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, while Pizza Crust is being assembled. Makes about 1 cup.

To Make Crust:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. In medium mixer bowl using regular Beaters (not dough hooks), blend the yeast, flours, xanthan gum, salt, gelatin powder, and Italian seasoning on low speed. Add warm milk, sugar, oil, and vinegar.

3. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. (If the mixer bounces around the bowl, the dough is too stiff. Add water if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist Beaters.) The dough will resemble soft bread dough.

4. Put mixture on 12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet (for thin, crispy crust), or 11 x 7-inch pan (for deep-dish version) that has been coated with cooking spray. Liberally sprinkle rice flour onto dough, then press dough into pan, continuing to sprinkle dough with flour to prevent sticking to your hands. Make edges thicker to hold the toppings.

5. Bake pizza crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Top pizza crust with sauce and your preferred toppings. Bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until top is nicely browned.
