Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 25 mins
Serves: 5
  • 3/4 cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Mix
  • 3/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons dry powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon Agar-Agar powder (can substitute for the same amount unflavored gelatin powder)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 package active dry yeast granules
  • 1 teaspoons sugar OR 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle lightly with gluten free cornmeal.
  3. Dissolve your yeast in the water as per the directions for the yeast.
  4. Whisk together all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Be sure they are well mixed.
  5. Gradually mix in the wet ingredients; sugar, olive oil, vinegar, water (with the yeast).
  6. Mix on high speed for 3 to 4 minutes.
  7. Place your dough mixture on a clean surface well sprinkled with tapioca flour. Begin to work your dough into a large ball. The dough will be sticky. The key to managing the dough is to use enough tapioca flour in your kneading.
  8. Divide your dough in half to make two pizzas.
  9. Roll each dough ball into a circle. (Be sure to use enough tapioca flour!) Roll the dough thick for Chicago Style, and thinly for New York Style.
  10. Transfer the rolled dough onto your pizza sheet or pizza stone. Bake for five minutes. To ensure an even bake it is best to bake each pizza separately.
  11. Topping:
  12. • 1 cup organic pizza sauce (you can make your own using organic tomato sauce, fresh basil, salt, pepper, oregano and olive oil)
  13. • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, grated
  14. • 4 sliced mushrooms
  15. • 8 sliced olives
  16. • 4 ounces organic turkey pepperoni
  17. Spread the organic pizza sauce on the pizza. Leave a border around the edges if you would like a crispier crust. Top with a third of the cheese. Sprinkle evenly with the mushrooms, olives and pepperoni. Top with the rest of the grated mozzarella. Return to the pizza to the oven for another 7-10 minutes.
