Gluten Free Pizza Crust: with dairy free yogurt! No rising, no yeast, ready in 10 minutes.

Pizza is one of my favorite week night meals. I love having a great crust that rises and takes time on the weekends but during the week, I need quick and simple. I recommend my other super easy pizza crust for times when you don't have dairy free plain yogurt on hand since it's only a few ingredients you most likely have. But, if you do have dairy free plain yogurt, you absolutely need to give this a try!

Tomato sauce for pizza is also SO simple. I mean so simple, you can pull a few ingredients out of your cupboard, toss it together, and call it good. My 5 minute pizza sauce is a must-save!


In our house we definitely end up with two different pizzas on the same crust. I used to make two pizza crusts as well. One with regular flour for my husband and one with gluten free flour for myself. My main goal, for a weeknight meal, was to find a crust we could both enjoy. Understanding that any super quick gluten free crust is never going to taste 100% like regular gluten-full crust. That's just the facts-of-life and with that understanding, I wanted a crust that we could both enjoy! This gluten free pizza crust is it.

We may share a crust but I do put different toppings and cheese on each side. He gets regular mozzarella, I use Daiya shredded pepper jack or mozzarella. My husband is more of a meat eater than I am so he gets all the meaty toppings, I tend to stick with vegetables and sometime shrimp. Either way, one crust and we are both happy!


Keep in mind, with recipes like this, NOT ALL FLOUR IS CREATED EQUAL. Also, not all yogurt is created equal. I always see comments "bashing" recipe creators when someone else tries a recipe and it doesn't turn out perfect but we all tend to remind those testing our recipes that we recommend brands not because we have to, but because it is what we use in our own kitchens and it is how we have created the recipe to reach it's optimal taste! Another thing to keep in mind is your location. The humidity and elevation DOES make a different. SO. That being said. Keep that in mind if you need to tweak and adjust a recipe with different types of products and brands!

Give this super simple recipe a try, and let me know what you think.


Much love,

Cass

Ingredients:

1 small container (140g) dairy free yogurt (I use So Delicious coconut milk yogurt, plain)

140 grams gluten-free flour + 2 additional tablespoons (I used Bob's Red Mill 1:1 gluten free flour)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon salt

Egg wash (or egg replacement - 1 egg + 1 tablespoon lukewarm water - whisked together


Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Put flour, baking soda, Italian seasoning, and salt into a medium bowl and whisk.

  3. Add yogurt and mix until combined. It takes a little manipulating to get the dough to stick together. You may need to add a little additional flour or water to get it to the right consistency but the dough should hold together nicely without flaking apart. It will be slightly sticky.

  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead briefly.

  5. Shape the dough into a ball and place on a piece of parchment paper that will later be transferred to a cookie sheet.

  6. Working on the parchment paper allows you to shape the dough without worrying about it sticking on your counter.

  7. Carefully press the dough into a crust, working from the center out.

  8. Use a floured rolling pin to create and even crust.

  9. Pinch the outer edge to form a crust

  10. Using a fork, make holes in the crust as pictured above.

  11. Generously brush the egg wash on the crust and bake in the oven 10 minutes.

  12. Remove, add toppings, and return to oven for 3-5 more minutes.

  13. I always find finishing for 1 minute under the broiler helps brown the cheese as well!
