  • Prep time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Total time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Serves: 1 (30 cm pizza)
  • Calories 365


  • 175 g gluten free flour
  • 1 tsp psyllium husk powder
  • 1/2 tsp yeast, instant, dried
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 135 ml water, warm


  • 1)

    Add the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine.

  • 2)

    Add the wet ingredients and bring the ingredients together until a soft dough forms. You can either use your hands or a mixer. Keep kneading until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky.

  • 3)

    Roll the dough into a ball, then flatten into a circle on a piece of non stick liner until around 30 cm. If you want 2 small pizza’s, cut the dough into two pieces and flatten into 15 cm circles.

  • 4)

    Cover the pizza base with a clean damp tea towel and leave to rise for around 1 hour.

  • 5)

    Top with your choice of toppings then transfer (on the liner) to a baking tray into the pre-heated oven at 230 degrees C. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until your desired level of crispiness.

  • 6)

    Pizza topping ideas: for this recipe I added a thin layer of tomato passata, dried oregano, finely sliced onions, ham and lots of mozzarella cheese.

    Making homemade gluten-free pizza recipe has always been comforting to me. In a lot of cases, you ll make the gluten-free pizza crust recipe in about as much time as it would take to get delivery or run to the store, so it s not that much of a time sacrifice when you think about it. Plus, homemade gluten-free pizza has such a unique taste, something you can t get from a delivery. And a lot of times, I prefer the taste of homemade gluten-free pizza.

    I’d like to make this ASAP. What brand of gluten free flour do you use? Is Bob’s 1:1 ok? What type of psyllium powder should I use? Where can I purchase the above. For the liner, would parchment paper work? Sorry for all the questions, but this little one so yummy and I’ve not had success in the past. Thank

      Hey Debbie, thanks for your comment. I am located in Europe and unfortunately cannot purchase Bob’s 1:1 flour here. I’m very curious if you tried the recipe and if it worked out. Please comment for fellow readers which flour you used. 🙂
