Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 8
  • 1 2/3 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon rapid-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup warm water (start with a few tablespoons less, add more if necessary)
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add all of the dry ingredients. Stir to combine.
  2. With the mixer running, add the olive oil, egg and 3/4 cup water, adding up to 1/4 cup more if necessary. The dough should come together in a ball around the paddle. If it still seems too dry, add a few more tablespoons of water. You don't want the dough to be too sticky.Beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into two balls, forming each into a crust on a sheet of parchment paper (two 14" round pizzas). Flour your hands with tapioca starch before handling the dough, and you should be able to work with it without it being too sticky to roll out. If it is still sticky, place a sheet of plastic wrap over the top to help you roll it out.
  4. Allow dough to rise for 30 minutes in a warm, draft free place (this gives a lighter, more crisp crust.)
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  6. Bake pizza crust in the preheated oven until lightly browned around the outside (approximately 12 minutes).
  7. Remove from oven, slide the parchment paper out, and top the pre-baked crust with your favourite gluten free sauce and toppings.
  8. Return to oven and bake until toppings are bubbling and cheese is starting to brown (another 10-15 minutes, depending on your toppings).
  9. Remove from oven and cut into slices immediately. Place the pizza pan on a wire cooling rack to let steam escape from the bottom of the pizza.
  10. Enjoy!
