This delicious recipe may take a while to make, but it is worth every minute of waiting. My entire family just loves pizza. So, I told them that I was going to make different recipes of gluten-free, grain-free pizza for them to try. This is my first in a series of pizza recipes to be published over the course of the next few weeks.
This recipe turned out to have a thin, but tasty crust. Generally, we like a thicker crust. So, my next recipe will include some effort to obtain a thicker crust using a grain-free flour.

Gluten Free Pepperoni Pizza
- Pizza Pan or Baking Pan of your choice.
- Grater or Food Processor
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
- Small Saucepan
- Small Bowl
- Large Mixing Bowl
- Pizza Cutter
- 1 ½ Cups Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
- 2 Tablespoons Dry Milk Powder
- 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
- ¾ Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Xantham Gum
- 1 ½ Teaspoons Instant Yeast
- 1 Tablespoon Sugar or Honey Optional
- 1 Cup Warm Water
- ¼ Cup Olive Oil, Divided
- 1 Cup Pasta Sauce
- 1 Package Pepperoni Slice
- 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese Add more cheese if that is your preference
- Mix all dry ingredients, except for yeast and sugar or honey, in a large mixing bowl until completely blended.
- In a small bowl mix sugar or honey, warm water, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, yeast, and 1/2 cup of the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Combine ingredients leaving some lumps in the mixture. After the mixture has set for about 30 minutes and is bubbly begin the next step.
- Add yeast mixture to the dry ingredients and beat with a mixer for about 4 minutes. The dough will remain sticky after it is mixed.
- After covering the bowl with your favorite towel let it rest for about 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 425°
- Either spray your pizza pan with cooking spray or place about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the center of the pan and place the dough on top of it.
- Use plastic saran wrap to start at the center of the dough and work outwards pressing it into a 12" to 14" inch circle.
- For 15 minutes let the dough rest.
- For about 8 to 10 minutes bake the crust until the surface looks dull, rather than shiny.
- After removing the crust from the oven top it with your favorite pasta sauce, pepperoni, and cheeses. Finish baking it for about another 15 minutes.
- Serve your homemade pizza while warm.
