HOME FOOD 4 Tips for the Best Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

4 Tips for the Best Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

by Elyse V

Many years ago I was told I have a gluten intolerance and that I should eliminate it from my diet. As an Italian, I knew this was not going to be easy. There is gluten in most traditional Italian food. I couldn’t possibly give it all up. Luckily, the gluten-free pasta market is full of options and some you can’t even tell are gluten-free. Unfortunately, the same generally can’t be said for gluten-free pizza dough and I love pizza.

When you order or buy a gluten-free crust you usually get a pre-formed disc that is thin, cracker-like, and may have a birdseed’ish quality. While some can be enjoyable, I missed the fluffy light pizza dough that I grew up enjoying…until now. Through many experiments with many different recipes and flours, I am sharing my 4 tips (and recipe) to consistently create the best gluten-free pizza dough ever. It’s so good, you’ll never know it’s gluten-free.

I have the hardest time make gluten free dough that isn’t disgusting. Great tips.

It definitely is challenging. This recipe is tried and tested and it makes dough that you wouldn’t know is gluten-free so that’s saying something. If you give it a try, let us know how it comes or if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving us a note.
