Gluten-Free Pizza

apizzaAnother parable He spoke to them: “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened.”  Matthew 13:33 (NKJV)

Our favorite Sabbath night activity is pizza and a family movie, often The Chosen. With restaurant prices as they are these days, it makes “cents” to whip up your own pizza at home. And this pizza tastes better than any gluten-free restaurant pizza I’ve found!

Get started about 1-1/2 hours before you want to eat.

In an electric mixing bowl, combine these dry ingredients:
3 cups brown rice flour
3 cups tapioca or arrowroot flour
1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 cup quinoa or millet flour
1/2 cup ground seed blend (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame or flax)
2 teaspoons salt
4 Tablespoons active dry yeast (leaven, we had to pause this while fighting candida, see Cauliflower Pizza recipe for an alternative)
2 Tablespoons honey or monk fruit
Blend together until well mixed.

In a measuring cup, combine:
3 cups warm water
1/4 cup olive oil
4 eggs or 8 egg whites (pasture-raised, free-range local fresh eggs!)
(use additional flax seed and water if you want to make this egg-free)
Pour this mixture into the mixing bowl and combine. Beat on high for 4 minutes.

While the dough is beating, line your baking pans with parchment paper. Using this recipe, I can make 2, 13-inch pizzas, plus 3 pie-pan size pizzas. I freeze the small ones to use later. You could also make 2 cookie sheet-sized pizzas and a few pie-sized pizzas, or a few loaves of bread.

Once the dough is mixed, turn it out onto your parchment paper, dividing between the prepared pans. Use a spatula to spread the dough to the edges of the pans. Dough will be sticky, so you may oil your spatula if needed. Let the dough rest on the pans for 20 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Prebake the crusts for 10 minutes and remove from the oven. Now top the crusts with your favorite toppings. Some of our favorites include:
Olive oil
Black olives
Green peppers
Daiya (dairy-free) mozzarella shreds or goat cheese

Bake the prepared pizzas for another 18-20 minutes, or until golden. Serve hot. The crusts taste great topped with honey like the famous restaurants use. Enjoy your family pizza night!

I would like to thank Angela Litzinger of for her original recipe!

To all who call upon Him in truth.  Psalm 145:18 (NKJV)

  1. Hello gluten-free pizza lovers! I hope you will try this recipe again. I just noticed a key ingredient was missing from my first publication and have now fixed the error. I made a new batch and have 4 crusts waiting for me in the freezer, plus a loaf of bread!

  2. Hello gluten-free pizza lovers! Just made a few more updates to this recipe today. I hope Jesus heals our mold/candida soon so we can enjoy this recipe again! The seed blend without the flax is supposed to be especially good for detoxing and nourishing the body.
