Why grilling is best:
What makes this new gluten free pizza base recipe different is that it cooks up on your grill. Grilled pizza crust has two big benefits.
- If it is hot outside, you can skip using the oven. Why heat up your house if you don't need to?
- The high heat from the grill makes the grilled pizza crust nice and crispy!

Are you ready to give this grilled pizza crust a try? First, let's 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.
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.
Can you make this without yeast?
Unfortunately, you do need yeast for this specific pizza recipe. If you prefer to make a pizza crust without yeast, I highly recommend giving this Grain-Free Gluten Free Pizza Crust recipe a try.
Do you need a pizza stone to make this?
Nope...you don't need a pizza stone to make my grilled pizza recipe. You can plop that raw pizza crust dough right on the grill!
How do you grill pizza on a Weber grill?
Our grill is a Weber grill so this is an easy question for me to answer for you. I preheat my Weber grill on medium-high until the temperature gauge is showing 450 degrees.
Open the grill and add your pizza crusts. I grill the pizza crusts with the lid closed for 8 minutes, then open the lid and add the sauce, cheese and toppings.
- Fresh basil
Pinterest user Christine O said "Best GF pizza crust I have tried. I used Cup 4 Cup multipurpose flour. I baked mine in the oven on parchment paper for 11-12 minutes at 400 degrees."
