Are you ready to give this grilled pizza crust a try? First, lets make the gluten free pizza base. This pizza dough is probably going to be a lot more firm than what you are used to making. It needs to be more firm to hold up to the grill.
How to Make Gluten Free Pizza Base:
The first step is to proof your yeast so it gets nice and foamy. This helps the pizza crust so that it isn’t so dense.
Slowly add the ingredients into a mixer. (I switched to the dough hook on my Kitchen Aid mixer because it handles the dough the easiest.)
Put the gluten free pizza base dough onto a board and shape into individual pizza crusts.

Things You Need to Make The Gluten Free Pizza Base Recipe:
- My favorite gluten free flour blend works really well in this recipe.
- If you don’t have an electric mixer, use these awesome mixing bowls because their rubber bottoms prevent them from sliding all around the counter.
- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 2 teaspoons yeast
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 2 eggs
- Put the warm water in a bowl with the honey. Add the yeast and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes until if foams up.
- In a mixer, add the foamy yeast, eggs, and oil. Mix to blend.
- Change to a dough hook and salt, parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup flour. Mix.
- Gradually keep adding the flour and mixing it until the dough is in a ball.
- Take the bowl off the mixer and place plastic wrap over the bowl. Allow it to sit for 30-40 minutes to rise.
- Remove the plastic wrap and place the dough onto a floured surface.
- Preheat your grill to 400 degrees.
- Break the dough into 4 pieces and flatten to pizza crust shapes.
- Put the dough onto the grill and close the lid so the dough can cook for 3-5 minutes.
- Open the lid. Add sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings.
- Grill until the cheese is melted and the crust looks cooked. Make sure you check the bottom of the crust periodically to ensure it doesn't burn.
