I have been enjoying my slow journey dabbling in gluten-free baking. I have learned a lot of what doesn’t work along the way and I am excited to share something with you that actually does work! This crust is perfect for any pizza recipe that you love. I used it in last week’s pizza recipe and love how it turned out!
This dough is easy to assemble, and since I used rapid rise yeast, it was quick to prepare for a single pizza. This can also be made and frozen for a few days in a freezer safe plastic bag if you need to prep ahead of time.
Herb Infused Gluten-Free Pizza Dough Recipe
2C quinoa flour
1.25C hot water
1 rapid rise yeast packet
3T olive oil
2T xanthan gum
2T fresh herbs I used cilantro and basil
1/2t honey or sugar
Mix all the dry ingredients together – including the yeast.
Chop the herbs.
Due to the gluten-free nature of the dough it will not rise terribly much, but you will notice a difference. It easily spreads with wet hands into any shape or thickness you’d care for. Since I used wet hands to smooth and shape it, the dough was very moist. I pre-baked mine for about 5 minutes before adding any toppings.
It perfectly accompanied my Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Pizza!
