Delicious Gluten Free Pizza

Posted on Feb 8 2014 - 1:46pm by Alexa B (Kat Biggie)

I have made homemade gluten free pizza about four times now. Three of those times it was mmmm… okay. Good enough that everyone ate it, not good enough that we were anxious to eat the leftovers.

Finally, Wednesday evening, I made some pizza that was worth mentioning!

Here’s the deal with gluten free pizza crust. It will NEVER taste like white flour pizza crust. Never. You just have to train your tastebuds to enjoy pizza with a different taste, and texture. GF crusts tend to be chewy. But I have figured out the secret. Karina at Gluten free Goddess, who experiments until she gets it right.

Oh and also these things help: Extra olive oil, seasonings in the dough, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, roll it out to a thin crust. If you like thick pizza crust, you can have a tasty crust, but just realize it is going to be very dense. So, I have found the thin crust to be better for texture.

I realized that I did not have any pizza or spaghetti sauce, but I did have a can of tomato soup, and it made a really fantastic sauce for this crust! It’s included in the recipe below.

I made one pizza with just cheese blends and pepperoni for the kids.

Then I made a better one with all kinds of veggies and yum yum.

Now for the recipe!

Gluten free pizza - finally a really good crust!
Kat Biggie:
Recipe type: Pizza
Serves: 4-8
Ingredients
  • 1 bag of gluten free pizza crust OR make your own homemade crust (notes below)
  • 1 can of tomato soup
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • dried oregano
  • dried parsley
  • minced garlic
  • shredded cheeses
  • chopped fresh veggies
  • pepperoni or other meat toppings
Instructions
  1. Follow the directions for your crust.
  2. Add a little extra olive oil to the dough mix. You can also add seasonings if you'd like. Make sure to roll the dough out very thinly. Wet your hands to do so without it sticking to you.
  3. Cook the dough for about 10 minutes
  4. Spread the sauce.
  5. Add your favorite toppings. I used a roma tomato, sliced; ½ an onion, diced; fresh red pepper, diced; turkey pepperoni, banana peppers, mozzarella cheese, and provolone cheese
  6. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes
  7. To make your own sauce:
  8. can of tomato soup
  9. add salt, oregano, parsley, and minced garlic to taste.
  10. You can also use spaghetti sauce or jarred pizza sauce.

The recipe that I used to make the GF crust can be found on Gluten Free Goddess (she has all kinds of great GF recipes!)

You probably notice that I did not include amounts for the spices and olive oil. That’s because I did it all to taste. If I had to guess, I’d say about 1 -2 tbsp of everything (except the salt in the tomato sauce.)

      Tamara, I am the same way! The chewier the better for me! Love the idea of using tomato soup as sauce in a pinch.

        I really liked the tomato soup because it made it a little sweeter, and it just really complimented the taste of the crust. The downside, I had to add a bit more salt. I don’t mind the chewy crusts, but it hurts my jaws after a couple of bites!

      I am okay with it, except for the fact that I have TMJ as a byproduct of my Lupus, so it can really be painful after awhile. But the taste of GF pizza is really growing on me!

    I’m not big on thick crust anyway. Seems like this would be worth a try!

    I tend to favour a cauliflower crust for my gluten-free pizzas as I don’t make them very often so it doesn’t seem worthwhile to have loads of different types of flours hanging around in the pantry. The recipe you used does have a fantastic looking crust, though, and I love the idea of using tomato soup in a pinch! I’ve been known to mix tomato paste with herbs, chilli and olive oil to make a quick and dirty sauce, too.

      You’re so welcome! It has taken a lot of experimentation, but I finally have found some bread recipes I like too. I think they all came from Gluten Free Goddess. If you know you’re going to be eating GF, it’s worth it to go ahead and order all the different flours she uses… it really, REALLY helps with texture and taste! I got them all on Amazon.

      My pleasure! I know it is hard to find really good Gluten Free recipes, although they are getting more prevalent – but there is a difference between a “recipe” and a tried and true recipe!

      If buying all of these different types of flours is overwhelming, I highly recommend trying the brand Namaste. They have an all purpose flour that you could probably use for pizza crust and all sorts of other recipes, and it does not carry the “GF” flavor… if you’ve been experiementing with the flours, you know what I mean! Good luck. I can tell you that my symptoms from Lupus reduced significantly when I went GF.

    I make a lot of pizzas at home, and I’ve experimented with gluten-free, but I haven’t found a gluten-free flour I really like. I may have to try again soon!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe. My family LOVES pizza, but hubby has been having some stomach issues, which we initially thought were dairy/lactose related, but have since discovered that gluten is more likely the culprit. As a result we’re looking for new ideas that address that and see if it helps. I think this will be a great one to try that the whole family will love! (BTW, it’s been a while since I stopped, by but so happy I’m back on your page — I’ll definitely be popping in more frequently! ) #SITSBlogging

      Karen’s dough recipes are really good. It may frighten you at the number of flours she uses, but if you’re going to be eating gluten free on a regular basis, it is worth the small investment. I really thought that the tomato soup as a sauce also really complemented the taste of the dough, so try that as well! :-)
