Recipe: Gluten Free Pizza Crust:

Happy Friday Friends! 

I don't know about you but Friday's in our house usually call for pizza. Though when you have Celiac Disease "pizza night" can turn into pizza for everyone else and a salad for mommy. Thankfully over the years a ton of places have started carrying Gluten Free pizza. While that is so awesome you have to remember that people who actually have the disease have to be extremely careful with cross contamination. I can't tell you how much I have gotten sick because of this (which is why we do not eat out all that often). So Pizza Night in our house may be a little different than most families but it is just as delicious and we know exactly what is going into our tummies, because I make it fresh! 

If you remember I have talked about Pamela's Gluten Free flour a lot because it is the only GF Flour we keep in the house. We find it to be much more cost efficient by buying it in bulk through Amazon so we always have it on hand! We have their Bread Mix as well as their Baking Mix. I make all of my bread fresh with their flour, muffins, waffles, pancakes, biscuits, donuts, and yes even pizza crust! So if you are feeling crazy tonight and want to try something different here is how you can make your very own fresh Gluten Free Pizza Crust.

3 1/2 cups Pamela's Bread Mix
1 packet of Yeast
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cups warm water

Preparation: (This makes 2 12 to 14 inch crusts)
In a Stand Mixer with whisk attachment
Combine dry mix, yeast, oil, and water. 
Mix on medium for 2 minutes.
Take 1/2 the dough and place onto heavily greased baking sheet.
Spread dough into crust shape (you will need to pour some oil into your hands and a little onto the dough to keep it from sticking)
Let rest one hour.
Preheat oven to 375. Bake for 30 minutes on lower rack.
Add sauce and toppings. Continue baking 10 minutes, until toppings are melted.
Dough will puff while baking.

This is seriously the best gluten free pizza I have had and it is so incredibly easy to make. What I love about it even more is that you can freeze them after partially baking them for 20 minutes! Just wrap them after cooling and freeze! Then you can always have homemade GF crust on hand! 
Such an easy nap time prep! 

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend and Happy Pizza Making!

  1. Looks yummy! Pizza is always on the menu at our house too on Friday nights...and sometimes Wednesday nights. :) I recently found the recipe for the pie crust at Mellow Mushroom and I've been meaning to give it a try!
