Gluten free pizza base recipe
Make your own gluten-free dough for pizza night

SERVES 4

Ingredients

  • Gluten-free plain flour

    600g

  • Dry yeast

    3 tsp

  • Caster sugar

    1 tsp

  • Xanthan gum

    1 tsp

  • Hot water

    400ml

  • Olive oil

    3 tbsp

  • Tomato pizza sauce

  • Gluten-free toppings of choice

  • Mozzarella cheese, to top

Method

STEP 1

Mix flour, yeast, sugar and xanthan gum together in a large bowl.

STEP 2

In a small bowl, whisk the water and oil then add to dry ingredients. Combine ingredients and knead lightly on a surface dusted with gluten-free flour, until it forms a soft, smooth dough.

STEP 3

Prepare 3 small, oiled bowls. Divide dough into 3 equal balls and rub with olive oil to stop the dough from drying out. Place each ball in separate bowls, cover with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 2 hours to rise.

STEP 4

Preheat a pizza tray in the oven to 230ºC. Lightly knead each ball of dough and roll out flat between baking paper dusted with gluten-free flour. Transfer onto preheated trays and immediately add tomato pizza sauce, gluten-free toppings of choice and mozzarella cheese.

STEP 5

Bake until cheese is golden brown, 5-10 minutes.

TOPPING SUGGESTION:

To make garlic pizza, spread 3 cloves minced garlic, oregano, salt and pepper over dough and drizzle with olive oil.

Tips

Using pizza stones on your barbecue creates a crispy bottom. Preheat stones and prepare your pizza with toppings before transferring onto the stones. Remember to dust the bottom of the dough with gluten-free flour before adding toppings, so it slides off easily after cooking.
