Gluten Free Pizza Recipe

Those who need to stay on a gluten-free diet these days can't be called to be "suffering" anymore because there are already a ton of recipes available in the market, even with pizza! From food fanatic, here's a gluten-free dough that is easy to make. 

For the Dough:
1 cup brown rice flour
2 1/2 tablespoons potato starch
5 tablespoons arrowroot starch, or tapioca flour
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
1 tablespoon granulated sugar, or honey
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 cup warm water
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
For the Topping:
1/3 cup marinara sauce
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

  1. Mix together the dry ingredients (except the yeast) in the bowl of a stand mixer until thoroughly combined.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the warm water, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, yeast and 1/2 cup of the dry mixture. Let this sit uncovered for 30 minutes or until the mixture is bubbly.
  3. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and beat on medium high speed with a stand mixer or electric hand blender for 4 minutes. It will be very thick and sticky.
  4. Cover the bowl and let it sit in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  6. On a 12" round pizza pan or a baking sheet, drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil onto the center.
  7. Scrape the pizza dough onto the center of the pan.
  8. Using wet fingers, press the dough into a 12" to 14" circle. Let the pizza dough rest for about 15 minutes before baking.
  9. Bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes or until it appears to be set. It shouldn't have started browning.
  10. Remove the pizza from the oven and add the marinara sauce, mozzarella, Parmesan and any other additional toppings.
  11. Continue baking the dough for another 10-15 minutes or until the cheese starts to turn a light golden brown.
  12. Remove the pizza from the oven and serve.
