GLUTEN-FREE PIZZA BASE
Who doesn’t love pizza night? Make your own dough with our best-ever gluten-free pizza base recipe.
Gluten-free plain flour
Tomato pizza sauce
Gluten-free toppings of choice
Mozzarella cheese, to top
Mix flour, yeast, sugar and xanthan gum together in a large bowl.
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.
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.
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.
Bake until cheese is golden brown, 5-10 minutes.
To make garlic pizza, spread 3 cloves minced garlic, oregano, salt and pepper over dough and drizzle with olive oil.
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.
