Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups gluten free flour blend *see note
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons yeast *see note
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water

Instructions
 

  • In a small bowl, add sugar, yeast and warm water. Allow to sit for 5 minutes so yeast are bubbly.
  • In a large bowl add all dry ingredients. Whisk to blend.
  • In the bowl of yeast and water, add olive oil. Pour into dry ingredients and mix.
  • Shape the dough into flatbread, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise in a 200º F warm spot for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven (or grill) to 425º F. If your pizza stone is new and not seasoned yet, put a thin layer of olive oil. Put the pizza stone in the oven while preheating so it gets nice and hot. Remove the stone from the oven. *See note*
  • Break pieces of dough off. Put a piece in between two pieces of plastic wrap. Roll to ½ inch flat for pizza or ¼ inch flat for a thinner flatbread. Carefully put on the pizza stone.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes until the crust is crispy.
  • If you are adding toppings, remove the crust from the oven and spoon sauce onto the crust. Top with mozzarella cheese. Add your favorite toppings.
  • Bake an additional 5-8 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with Cup4Cup and Better Batter in this recipe. That doesn't mean others will not work. I just have not tested other flours. The Bob's didn't rise as much as the other two blends.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add one teaspoon.
  3. You can also use a sourdough starter in this recipe. Use ⅓ cup instead of a package of yeast. Note your rise time will need to be longer using a sourdough starter.
There are three ways to cook this flatbread:
  1. On the grill: Preheat a pizza stone on the grill to 425º F. When the stone is very hot, add the dough to the hot baking stone. Bake the flatbread pizza crust on a pizza stone to get nice and crispy. For making pizza, add your toppings after the crust pre-cooks for 10 minutes. Cook an additional 8 minutes until the crust is crisp and the cheese is golden
  2. In a 12" cast-iron skillet: Preheat the skillet over medium heat. Carefully drop the dough onto the skillet. You want to monitor the heat, so your pan doesn't get too hot and burn your dough. The dough will bubble. Check the bottom and flip when you see the bottom is cooked.
  3. In an oven or toaster oven: A pizza stone fits beautifully in either a large toaster oven or a regular oven. Heat the pizza stone up in the oven to 425º F degrees. Add the dough and cook as mentioned above in the grill directions.
