After struggling with bloating and stomach problems for a while now I’ve decided it’s time to start going gluten free. A lot of the shop bought gluten free items are so expensive so I’m starting to try out some recipes myself. The first on my list was to try a pizza recipe. Pizza is very well loved in this house so the perfect place to start on my change to gluten free.

Recipe | Homemade Gluten Free Pizza
  • 375g gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 275 mls water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine yeast and 180mls warm water. Too hot and it will kill the yeast. Leave it aside for 5 minutes to activate. Sprinkle in 1 Tbsp of the sugar a few minutes in.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine gluten free flour blend, salt, baking powder and remaining 2 Tbsp sugar. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Make a well in the dry mixture and add the yeast mixture. Add the olive oil and additional warm water before stirring. Then stir it all together until well combined.
  5. Start rolling out the dough then move to using your hands and work from the middle and push to spread/flatten the dough out to the edge. As it's a different texture to standard pizza dough I had to work quite hard to get it thin, and you need it thin.
  6. Put the pizza in the oven to pre-bake for roughly 25-30 minutes, or until it begins to look dry. Cracks may appear, but apparently that's normal
  7. Remove from oven and spread generously with pizza sauce, cheese and toppings. Pop back in oven for another 20-25 minutes, or until the crust edge looks golden brown and the cheese melted

The hubby & I loved it but the Teenager missed the usual doughy texture of a normal pizza base. I normally make my own pizza dough so in future I’ll be making two batches, one using normal flour & one gluten free then I can free the excess dough in portions for next time. Both time & money saving, bonus!

If you’ve got any gluten free recipes feel free to leave your links in the comments, thanks!

    Oh I am definitely going to bookmark this lovely pizza. I don’t have a glutton allergy but do get that bloating feeling and try to limit my intake. This looks delicious – thanks for sharing x

    Sounds yummy – I admit to buying gluten free mixes on Amazon in bulk..we eat a lot of pizza in the summer!! I may just have to bit the bullet and try making from scratch!

    You’ve definitely got a point about freezing the extra dough if you’re making two batches. It makes complete sense! One of my friends makes her own pizza dough as well, and she always rolls it before she freezes it between sheets of baking paper. It means it is as ready as it can be for a quick meal. Thanks for linking to #TastyTuesdays and sorry for not checking your recipe earlier: my laptop died the day after I launched Tasty Tuesdays…

    I love homemade pizza. I don’t have the worry about gluten free bases, but I have been reading about using cauliflower as the base mix. Perhaps one to try. Your pizza does look yummy. I think I’ll be putting homemade pizza on my Saturday night menu plan next week.

    Oscars favourite gluten free pizza base mix is by Isabel’s Free From. I’ve tried it and it’s much nicer than the ready made bases. I use the mix to make four bases, use one and roll the others out and freeze flat. Makes a very quick mid week dinner for him. I’m still excited he’ll eat melted cheese at the moment so pizza is a regular meal. I’ve made my own before but not gluten free. Maybe I’ll try this!
