Homemade Gluten Free Pizza
This gluten free recipe featuring Quick-Rise yeast will have you enjoying warm, homemade pizza in no time. The traditional mild-flavored crust and delicious aroma will please everyone in the family.
Yield 1 (15 to 16-inch) pizza, or 2 (8-inch) pizzas



  • 3 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tablespoon xanthan gum (only if your flour does not already contain it)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
  • 1 1/4 cups water, divided
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Quick Rise Yeast
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter (optional)
  • Dried parsley or Italian herbs (optional)
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Toppings of your choice


  • Combine flour, xanthan gum (if using), and salt into medium bowl. Whisk to combine very well.
  • In bowl of a stand mixer, add 1 cup of flour mixture and yeast. Mix well.
  • Combine 1 cup water and oil; heat to 120-130ºF; add to flour mixture in mixer bowl. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at medium speed.
  • Add remaining flour mixture. Start mixing on low speed, slowly add remaining water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together. Mix at medium speed for 2 minutes, or until a soft dough forms and dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Lightly flour fingers and work surface with gluten free flour. Turn dough out onto work surface and flatten and shape as desired. (If making 2 pizzas, divide dough in half first, then proceed with shaping crusts.) You can use a floured rolling pin to get the round shape started, if you like. This dough works best patted or rolled out as a fairly thin crust pizza. Transfer dough to greased pizza pan(s) or baking sheet(s).
  • Spread prepared sauce on pizza(s). Add toppings and shredded cheese as desired. Do not allow dough to rise. Optional: Brush outer edges of dough with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with dried parsley or Italian herbs.
  • Bake at 400°F until edges are crisp and light golden brown, and cheese is melted: about 20 minutes for 8-inch pizzas, about 35 minutes for a large 15 to 16-inch pizza. Remove from oven and serve immediately. Store leftovers covered tightly in the refrigerator. Pizza reheats best in the oven or in a skillet.
