Finding out that you have gluten intolerance or just constant bloating might diminish the joy of eating pizza whenever you want. This sounds so sad to us. That's why we're here to show you how to make a gluten-free pizza crust and once you've learned you can go on enjoying the little joys of life.
Friday evening usually means family or friend time. Whether you decide to spend the entire evening at home, watching TV, playing board games and relaxing, or going out for dinner and then a party, Friday is ‘The Evening’. The evening you allow yourself to be a bit more wild and careless. If you usually pay attention to the foods that you eat, this is the evening you might give up on rules and enjoy ‘forbidden’ dishes, and you can eat pizza, pasta, or cakes. But you can't really do that if you have celiac disease or gluten intolerance or if you feel bloated anytime you eat gluten.
So, because we feel you when it comes to pizza, we decided to give you some tips on how to make gluten-free pizza crust at home. Sure, you can use our gluten-free pizza crust recipes anytime you want a pizza (or a tart, or a quiche), not just on Fridays!
4 gluten-free pizza crust ideas
Gluten-free pepperoni pizza
Beyond what we've said earlier, you don’t need to have celiac disease to try a gluten-free diet. Some people avoid grains for other reasons. No matter your reasons, make this gluten-free pepperoni pizza, with a nice cauliflower crust. Even if you are a lover of gluten, you can try it just for fun and a new culinary experience!
You can also try this gluten-free pizza crust, also made of cauliflower, but without any garlic in the ‘dough’.
Zucchini pizza crust
If you're looking for a gluten-free pizza crust recipe, try this zucchini pizza topped with lots of mozzarella and Cheddar cheese. The crust is 100% zucchini-based, which means that it's not only gluten-free but also healthier.
Do you like potatoes and also love pizza? How about trying to make a potato-crust pizza? In our recipe, there’s no baking required, but you can cook it in the oven if you want. The cheese is very important because it’s what keeps the potatoes stick together. We’ve topped the pizza with prosciutto, arugula, and an egg. It’s an amazing combo, and we’re sure you won’t miss the classic pizza dough!
We’ve used this crust for a pie, but you can totally use the same recipe when making pizza at home! Use it if you don’t tolerate gluten, or if you just want to take care of your diet. Quinoa is packed full of protein and fiber, and it’s a great choice when it comes to limiting the flour in your diet. We also used almond flour and cornstarch as binding agents.
You can make other gluten-free pizza crusts by blending together spinach, mozzarella, and eggs; cooked sweet potatoes, almond flour, and baking soda; grated carrots, melted butter, and coconut flakes; cooked broccoli, ground oats, and egg whites. In fact, you can go for almost any veggie as long as you use binding agents like almond flour or mozzarella, which melts and holds ingredients together.
