What other flours can I use in this gluten-free pizza crust?
I have tested this gluten-free pizza crust recipe with Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour Blend (affiliate link). It works incredible in this recipe and it’s my other go-to flour blend. If you want to mix your own blend for this gluten-free pizza (per my original recipe) combine 1 cup white rice flour, 3/4 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 cup tapioca starch.
I haven’t tried this gluten-free pizza dough recipe with other flour blends. If you do, please come back and let me know which gluten-free flour blend you used.
We’ve used this gluten-free pizza recipe several times just this month, and we’ve started passing the recipe on to friends and family member to show them how easy making your own gluten-free pizza at home can be.
We usually bake up a couple of extra gluten-free pizza crusts and store them the in the freezer for super busy nights when we need to make dinner quickly. Simply pull a crust out of the freezer, heat your oven, top, and bake. Just like store bought pizza crusts, only better.
Can I substitute something for the egg in the gluten-free pizza dough?
Sure, you can use a flax egg (2.5 tablespoons water + 1 tablespoon ground flax seed) to make the gluten-free pizza dough. Make sure to let your flax egg sit for 5-10 minutes until it get thick and egg-like. Just note that the crust won’t be a fluffy in the center. I haven’t tried other egg replacers in this recipe.
You mention a pizza stone in your directions, I don’t have one.
First, I highly recommend getting a pizza stone (affiliate link) if you don’t have one. It really makes a huge difference when you make gluten-free pizza. But no worries. If you don’t have one, simply use a heavy baking sheet. If you don’t have a heavy baking sheet then you can use a cookie sheet. Let it preheat in the oven just as you would a pizza stone. You can do this before you make your gluten-free pizza dough.
Can I use a toaster oven to make this gluten-free pizza?
I have never used a toasters oven to make gluten-free pizza, but I have used one to reheat pizza. If you make this gluten-free pizza dough in a toaster oven please come back and tell me about your experience. If I ever I make this gluten-free pizza dough in a toaster oven I’ll make sure to update this post with my results.
How to make gluten-free pizza:
- Mix your warm water, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit until proofed.
- Add ingredients to mixer and mix until combined.
- Scrap the sides of the bowl until the dough is in a loose ball.
- Using oiled hands, spread the dough into a circle about 10-12 inches in diameter.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from the oven.
- Spread marinara sauce (or sauce of choice). Leave a little bit of space between the sauce and the edges.

My gluten-free pizza dough is sticky
Yep, most gluten-free pizza dough is sticky. Simply use a oiled spatula to transfer the gluten-free pizza dough from the bowl to your parchment paper. Then rub some oil on your hands before you spread the dough. There is a video in this post showing you how, if you need a visual.

- Working with or measuring gluten-free flour: spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level. Do not scoop your measuring cup into the gluten-free flour. The best method really is to weight it but I don't have the ingredient weights for all my recipes yet.
- Yeast: This recipe works with active yeast and instant yeast.
- Oil: If you don't have olive oil you can use your oil of choice.
- Gluten-Free Flours: This recipe works with several types of gluten-free flour blends but we find that our homemade gluten-free flour blend and Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking flour work best in this recipe.
