Prep:25min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a baking tray with baking parchment, then lightly grease the parchment.
  2. Stir the plain flour, chickpea flour, cornflour, tapioca flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, Italian herbs, oregano, salt and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl; set aside.
  3. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of caster sugar in the lukewarm water. Sprinkle the yeast over top and set aside until foamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Beat the egg in a separate bowl with the olive oil, vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar and garlic until smooth. Once the yeast is foamy, whisk it into the egg mixture, then stir in the flour until no dry lumps remain. Spread the dough over the prepared parchment, leaving the outer edge slightly thicker than the centre.
  4. Par-bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes until the dough has risen and is slightly firm.
  5. Remove from oven and top with your favourite pizza toppings, then continue baking at 220 C / Gas 7 until the base is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the pizza from the tray and cook directly on the oven rack for 5 minutes for a crisp base, if desired.
