  • 3 ½ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese optional
  • 1 ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons yeast * see note
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or honey
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs large


  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 ¼ cups pizza sauce * see note


  • Put the warm water in a bowl with the sugar. 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. Add the salt, parmesan cheese, and gradually add the 3 cups of flour. Mix slowly on low speed.
  • Mix until the dough is in a ball. On a baking sheet, shape and size of pizza crust you want.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise 30-45 minutes.
  • Remove the plastic wrap.

Grilling Instructions:

  • Preheat your grill to 425º F.
  • Shape your dough into 4 mini gluten free pizza crusts.
  • 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.

Oven Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 425º F.
  • Heat a pizza stone if you are using one in the oven. If not skip this step.
  • Place your pizza crust on the pizza stone or a baking sheet.
  • Add the sauce, cheese, and toppings.
  • Bake the pizza for 12-15 minutes depending on crust thickness.



  1. I have tested this recipe with Cup4Cup and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. This pizza will keep up to 3 days in an air-tight container.
  4. If you want to make this pizza dairy-free, omit the parmesan cheese and use a dairy-free cheese.

Topping ideas:

  • Pepperoni
  • Sausage
  • Pineapple
  • Ham
  • Fresh basil
  • Mushrooms
