Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup gluten free sourdough starter * see note

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, combine sourdough starter, 2 cups gluten free flour blend, and water. Mix well. This dough will be somewhat wet.
  • Allow rising 4-6 hours. (I typically rise overnight, or through the day so it is ready for pizza night.)
  • Mix additional 1 cup flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
  • Add this mixture to the dough and mix.
  • Sprinkle some flour onto the parchment paper and spread to cover. Dump the dough onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Dust the top with additional flour and press the dough flat. You may need up to ½ cup additional flour for this process. As you press the dough, sprinkle the top with flour if the dough is sticky. Press the dough until it is ¼ inch thickness.
  • Allow the crust to rise for 45 minutes. Preheat your oven to 425º F.
  • Pre-bake your crust for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  • Add your pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings.
  • Return the pizza to the oven and bake an additional 10-12 minutes until the cheese is slightly golden.

Notes

1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend in this recipe. 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, add 1 teaspoon.
3. You can use homemade sauce or store-bought pizza sauce. Just check the label if you use store-bought to ensure it is gluten free.
4. It is important to pre-bake your crust so that the pizza crust cooks a little first.
Dry Yeast Instructions:
To use dry yeast, add one packet to ½ cup warm water and 1 teaspoon sugar. Allow sitting for 10 minutes until frothy. Use this in place of the sourdough starter and follow the same directions.
