    • 35g tapioca flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
    • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
    • 250ml lukewarm water
    • 1 (7g) sachet dried active baking yeast

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil

    • 1 teaspoon caster sugar

    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.

    Very good recipe. I used rice flour instead of garbanzo bean flour. I'm not a big fan of the garbanzo flour's nutty flavor and grittiness. Also skipped the sugar in the wet mixture because I was afraid it would be too sweet for our tastes. My 7 year old said it was the best GF pizza I've made so far. I used parchment paper on the pan to avoid sticking and only baked at 420 (per needs of paper). Worked great! Note to the cook who said the dough was gooey. GF doughs aren't like other bread doughs. They can't usually be kneaded and their consistency is usually between cake batter and cookie dough.  -  17 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Important to note that the batter is much like pancake batter. Spread it around as such and pre-bake. Comes out great - all the kids asked for more cheese pizza and no one guessed it was gluten-free.  -  17 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fantastic - made 6 personal pizza crusts for my daughter, and they were her favorite gf crusts so far. Like most gf recipes, the dough is thin, so I spread the dough onto parchment paper pretty thin (it is kind of like brownie batter constistency) and then prebaked and froze the crusts. Thanks!  -  09 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
