Fast and Fabulous Pizza Dough

Don't be surprised by the batter-like consistency of this speedy dough. It will be very thin and needs to be spread with a spatula or spoon, but once baked, the dough crisps up just like a regular pizza crust.



Ingredient Line: 
1 0.25-oz pkg. active dry yeast
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. sugar or agave nectar
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup almond flour or chickpea flour
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup potato starch
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup brown rice flour
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup gluten-free oat flour, such as Cream Hill Estates Lara's Whole Grain Oat Flour
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. guar gum or xanthan gum
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. baking powder
Ingredient Line: 
¾ tsp. salt
Ingredient Line: 
3 Tbs. olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line small baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Stir yeast and sugar into 11/2 cups warm water. Let stand 5 minutes, or until liquid is cloudy and bubbly.

3. Meanwhile, whisk together almond flour, potato starch, brown rice flour, oat flour, guar gum, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Stir yeast mixture into flour mixture. Stir in oil. Dough will have consistency of thick muffin batter.

4. Transfer dough to prepared baking sheet. Spread dough into thin crust as you would icing on cake, using metal spatula. Top with desired toppings. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until bottom is golden brown and toppings begin to bubble and brown.

Comments on this Recipe

Sandy, I used a cookie sheet and it turned out great! I think a cast iron skillet would be too small. A 9 x 13" cake pan would work too.

Wanted to try this, but what size is a "small" baking sheet?. Could I use a 10 inch cast iron skillet instead?

This is a great recipe! It was very easy and quick! Took like 10 minutes to make. Only downside is that it requires four different flours. I will be making this again tonight!

Such a great recipe! It's quick and easy and turned out great even with substitutes as I didn't have all the correct flours in the recipe. All my non vegetarian/gluten hungry friends and family LOVED the crispy perfectly golden crust! Definitely recommended!

Tried this for Memorial Day cookout. We cooked the pizzas on stones in the grill and had a "build your own" pizza party. The crust turned out crunchy and delicious! Even the non-veggies appreciated no gluten. This is now my "go to" pizza crust!
