If you have missed pizza since going gluten free, I have a treat for you. This gluten free pizza crust is crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, just like regular pizza crust.
I know you are going to love this gluten free, egg free pizza crust recipe from Lungomare in Oakland, CA because a good gluten free crust is hard to find. Lungomare’s chef, Chef Craig, has been converting a lot of his recipes to gluten free with his favorite gluten free flour blend, Cup4Cup gluten free flour.
Time for a confession. I have been a gluten free pizza crust failure. I didn’t know I was failing until I made this recipe and watched my family devour it. There was an actual crunching noise when my family bit into this pizza”
This crust is crispy and keeps the crispiness whether you make a really thin crust or a thicker crust. Top it any way you like, with sauce, or as shown with Fontina cheese and vegetables. **Chef Craig suggests you try topping it with caramelized purple onions, fontina cheese, chanterelle mushrooms, sunchokes. Top after baking with arugula.
Gluten free pizza crust can be made with many different gluten free flours. You can also try one of my favorite gluten free flour blends. You do want to make sure your gluten free flour blend has xanthan gum in it. This helps mimic the “stickiness” that you find in regular wheat flour. Xanthan gum holds your pizza crust dough together nicely. (Most gluten free flour blends include xanthan gum so really check the ingredient label. If it doesn’t have any, add 1 teaspoon. If it does have it blended in, don’t add extra or your crust can get goopy.)

This is what the pizza looked like at Lungomare when we dined there. Their gluten free pizza looks a lot fancier than mine!
