Transcript:How to Make Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Hi, I'm Stephanie Gallagher for About.com, and today, we're making gluten-free pizza dough. Let's get started.

Tips for Making Gluten Free Pizza Dough

This gluten-free pizza dough is made with a gluten-free flour mix. There are lots of good mixes on the market, and they're typically made up of several different gluten-free flours. Just be sure you pick one that doesn't already have xanthan gum in it, because we'll be adding that to our recipe.

Ingredients for Making Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Ok, for this recipe, you will need:
  • 3/4 cup of a gluten-free all-purpose flour mix
  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour, plus more for rolling out the pizza dough
  • 2 Tbsp. dry buttermilk powder or dry powdered milk
  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tsp. xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2-1/4 tsp. active dry yeast (that's equal to 1 packet)
  • 1 tsp. sugar or 1/2 tsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1-1/2 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup lukewarm water - make sure it's not hot or it will kill the yeast gluten-free cornmeal to sprinkle on the baking sheet

Instructions for Making Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place all of the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and then whisk them together.

Add the olive oil and cider vinegar (and honey if you're using that instead of sugar), and begin mixing with an electric mixer. Gradually add the water, starting with about 1/2 cup, and when the dough starts to come together, increase the speed of your mixer to high. Mix the dough for 3-4 minutes.

Now begin kneading the dough with your hands, and if it's nice and soft, you're good to go. But my dough feels a little dry, so I'm going to add a little more water, and knead that in.

Now sprinkle a board generously with tapioca flour, and sprinkle some extra tapioca flour onto the dough and on your rolling pin. Cut the dough in half, and roll out each half to a circle. You should be able to make two medium pizzas with this pizza dough recipe.

Sprinkle some cornmeal on a baking sheet or pizza pan, and transfer the pizza dough to the pan. Bake for 5 minutes or until the dough is firm.

Now spread some sauce and cheese or your favorite pizza toppings on your gluten-free pizza dough, and bake another 7-10 minutes.

And here's our gluten-free pizza.
