Delicious Homemade Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

Cheese and tomato pizza with gluten-free crust

This is the one we have been waiting for! A gluten free dough that is crispy, delicious and doesn’t come with all those “other” ingredients. Bottom-line: gluten-free should be simple and inexpensive.

So many of the recipes we tried over the past several months were ingredient heavy and extremely costly. After experimenting, tweaking and tweaking some more, we think we’ve hit the mark with this simple, five-ingredient, gluten-free pizza dough. We can’t wait for you to give it a try!

Fresh Chef Craig and I made a few different variations and this gluten-free dough really delivered on so many levels. The ingredient list is short and without additives. The recipe is not going to break the bank (I think our cost per pizza is 3 bucks). And the best part, it bakes beautifully! Our Baking Steel Original does a tremendous job of crisping up the bottom. That’s a win in my book!

Make your gluten-free friends a treat this weekend! Give our recipe a try and let us know how it goes.
