Easy gluten free pizza recipe?

Question by jesusfreak_200513: Easy gluten free pizza recipe?
i need an easy gluten free pizza recipe that i can use for my little sister who got diagnosed w/ Celiac disease and can no longer eat regular pizza. We don’t like driving to the health food store a few towns away to get the mix so please HELP!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Cister
Take a look at this site. Lots of ideas for your little sister. Give her my best:

1 tablespoon gluten-free dry yeast
2/3 cup brown rice flour or bean flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoons dry milk powder or non-dairy milk powder*
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin powder
1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
2/3 cup warm water (105 degrees F)
1/2 teaspoon sugar or 1/4 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In medium bowl using regular beaters (not dough hooks), blend the yeast, flours, dry milk powder, xanthan gum, salt, gelatin powder, and Italian herb seasoning on low speed. Add warm water, sugar (or honey), olive oil, and vinegar. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. (If the mixer bounces around the bowl, the dough is too stiff. Add water if necessary, one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters.) The dough will resemble soft bread dough. (You may also mix in bread machine on dough setting.)

Put mixture into 12-inch pizza pan or on baking sheet (for thin, crispy crust), 11 x 7-inch pan (for deep dish version) that has been coated with cooking spray. Liberally sprinkle rice flour onto dough, then press dough into pan, continuing to sprinkle dough with flour to prevent sticking to your hands. Make edges thicker to contain the toppings. Bake the pizza crust for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Spread pizza crust with your favorite sauce and toppings. Bake for another 20-25 minutes or until top is nicely browned.

Serves 6.

Anyone have a gluten-free pizza crust recipe – I have celiac’s disease?

Question by Tammy P: Anyone have a gluten-free pizza crust recipe – I have celiac’s disease?
I love pizza and I take my gluten-free glutino bagels and make them into pizza

But I would love to make homemade pizza crust also

any good recipes- there are none online that i care for

Best answer:

Answer by ALEX
This gluten-free pizza crust recipe can be rolled out, just like traditional wheat dough. You can make a thin crusted New York style pizza or thick crusted Chicago style, you decide. Then load it with your favorite toppings.

Use this recipe for Homemade Gluten-Free Flour Blend or your favorite GF all-purpose flour blend.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
3/4 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix
3/4 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoons dry buttermilk powder OR dry powdered milk OR Vance’s Dari-Free Powder
1 teaspoon Agar-Agar powder (Vegan ) OR unflavored gelatin powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 package active dry yeast granules
1 teaspoons sugar OR 1/2 teaspoon honey OR agave nectar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1/2 cup lukewarm water (hot water will kill the yeast!)
Extra tapioca flour for rolling the pizza dough
Gluten Free cornmeal to sprinkle on baking sheet
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle lightly with gluten free cornmeal.
Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk until thoroughly mixed together.
Add sugar or honey or agave nectar, vinegar, olive oil and gradually add water.
Mix on high speed for 3 to 4 minutes.
Scrape the thick dough on to a large clean surface liberally sprinkled with tapioca flour.
Work enough tapioca flour into the dough so that it can be shaped into a large ball. With a large knife cut the dough in half to make two medium pizzas.

The key to shaping this dough is to continue to sprinkle the work surface and the dough with tapioca flour.

Shape each piece into a circle making sure to sprinkle enough tapioca flour on the dough and the work surface to prevent it from sticking.
With a rolling pin shape the dough into circles. Roll thin for New York style pizzas or thick for Chicago deep dish style.
Carefully place one prepared pizza crust on baking sheet or pizza stone (see tips) sprinkled with corn meal and bake for about 5 minutes or until the dough is firm. This is called parbaking. Repeat with second pizza.
Top pizzas with your favorite ingredients and bake an additional 7-10 minutes or until done. Or cool parbaked crusts, wrap and freeze for convenience.

Yield: 1 large, or 2 medium or 3 small pizza crusts


A pizza stone creates crisp crusts by absorbing moisture in dough. If you like your pizzas crisp consider using a pizza stone.

Reminder: Always make sure your work surfaces, utensils, pans and tools are free of gluten. Always read product labels. Manufacturers can change product formulations without notice. When in doubt, do not buy or use a product before contacting the manufacturer for verification that the product is free of gluten.

Easy Chicken Gluten-Free Recipe

After coming home from a tiring work, gluten-free cooking might be such a chore and a pain in the neck for you. More often than not, you would want something quick and easy. In this day and age, it’s a nice feeling when all you have to do is just sit down to good and healthy meal. This particular recipe doesn’t only taste good, but you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already. Plus, it is healthy, quick, and absolutely gluten-free!

Pistachios add up to the stunning flavor and texture of this recipe and provide many different nutritional benefits as well. Pistachios are known to contain a significant amount of antioxidant properties and they could also lessen your chances of getting a heart disease. Knowing all this information will make you all the more eager to whip up this dish. You don’t only satisfy your palate, you also give your body some nutrients it requires to stay at its tip top condition!

Pistachio Crusted Quick Greek Chicken

4 tablespoons olive oil, use divided
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 – 10 ounce package frozen spinach, thawed

Kosher salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 lemon, juice and zest finely grated
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (omit for dairy free)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
¾ cup pistachios, chopped
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sauté the onions until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Squeeze all the liquid from the spinach and add to the onions. Add 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, the oregano and the lemon zest. Raise the heat to high and cook until all the liquid is gone, about 1 minute. Take off the heat and let cool whole preparing the chicken.

Butterfly the chicken breasts by laying each one flat on a cutting board, placing one hand on top and with the edge of a sharp knife parallel to the cutting board, begin cutting down the length of the side of the breast. Carefully slice the breast in half width-wise almost to the other edge. Open up the chicken breast like a book.

Add the feta (if you are using it) to the spinach and stir to combine. Stuff each chicken breast with one fourth of the stuffing, letting it overflow at the edges. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a rimmed baking dish and place the stuffed breasts on the baking dish, squeeze the lemon juice over and top with the chopped pistachios. Top the pistachios with a good pinch of salt and pepper and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Place the halved tomatoes on the other baking dish and drizzle with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, add 1 teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat.

Put both baking dishes in the oven and roast for 20 minutes or until the juices of the chicken run clear. Top the chicken breasts with the roasted tomatoes.

4 gluten-free servings.

What is a good gluten free bread recipe?

Question by ASH: What is a good gluten free bread recipe?
I am experimenting with different gluten free bread recipes. I don’t have many options since I cannot have dairy, eggs, butter, sugar or corn either. Also, if I can’t have corn, should I be staying away from the cornstarch in the baking powder? I assume it’s not a huge deal being a small amount?

Best answer:

Answer by Ⅿ❂✖ⅈ℮
One of the best resources I have found for very restrictive diets is They have recipes, as well as you can get coupons and samples. A surprisingly good website for gluten-free recipes is Land o Lakes: They have a great gluten-free flour blend

I do not know the answer to your question about baking powder, but would guess that yes you should not use it if you cannot have any corn whatsoever. The Be Free For Me site can probably answer that question better since they are the experts.

Hope that helps 🙂

Celiac Recipe Cooking – Gluten Free Recipes

Article by John C McRae

Have you just been told you have to eat a Gluten Free diet? How will this change your life? For those of us that suffer from Celiac disease or gluten intolerance, it is a medical necessity that we maintain a gluten free diet. Simply prepare celiac recipes.

Hundreds of processed foods contain Gluten so it is necessary to read ingredients when shopping for food items.

Basically it means that you have to change your cooking style. It has now become necessary to cook without gluten: that is remove all traces of Gluten from your diet and recipes.

Gluten Free flour is now available and produces a great result. Many Gluten Free foods are now also available to make your life easier and make up into great celiac recipes.

It is necessary to cook with natural Gluten Free foods including meats, fish, eggs, poultry and fresh fruit and vegetables. Gluten Free cooking will become easier as you go along and adapt various recipes. Many Gluten Free foods are delicious and tasty.

A lot of celiac recipes can be found all over the internet whether they be on websites or on blogs. There is also a ton of information on the web for Celiacs – just search for it.

Many restaurants now also cater for celiacs. A friend of mine who suffers from this disease, phones ahead to check what is available and prebook the meal of her choice.This gives the Chef time to have the necessary ingredients on hand. It also ensures that she will have a great night out and not suffer.

Remember: Educate yourself to know what constitutes Gluten Free foods. Adapt your recipes to and replace ingredients containing Gluten to Gluten Free ingredients. Read the labels on all foods you purchase.Check with Restaurants that they can serve Gluten free dishes.
