Gluten Free Pizza Crust

Updated on July 7, 2015

Pizza... one of my favorite foods. After I had been gluten free for a while, my mom discovered that she was also gluten intolerant, so we really had to find a new pizza crust recipe. We finally found one that was our favorite.

In this recipe, it calls for powdered milk. You may omit it if you like. We found it works almost as well without it, but we still use it.

There is an odd ingredient in this recipe that you may think doesn't belong in a pizza crust recipe: unflavored gelatin. I have tried making the crust without the gelatin, but it doesn't really work. I hope you like the recipe!

      If I were to guess...the gelatin probably helps hold things together. Glad that you found a pizza crust recipe that you like which is gluten free. It sounds healthy! I have heard of some people using cauliflower when making a pizza crust. That also sounds like a healthy alternative. Up votes and will share so that others who are searching for gluten free pizza crusts might like finding and getting to try your recipe.

      Although we don't have celiac disease, I do gluten free when I can just to improve our diet. I haven't found a gluten free pizza crust I like, so will definitely try yours. Thanks so much!
