  • ⅔ cup warm water
  • ½ tsp sugar, honey or agave syrup
  • 1 Tbsp dry yeast
  • 2 Tbsp powdered milk (or a powdered milk substitute)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • ⅔ cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 2 tsp xanthan gum
  1. Using a mixer, put the first three ingredients in bowl and let sit for 10 minutes so yeast is activated.
  2. Then add in remaining ingredients and mix at low speed until incorporated. Then mix on high for 2 minutes (if the dough is too stiff, add some water - only one tablespoon at a time, until dough does not resist beaters). The dough will resemble soft bread dough.
  3. Place mixture on floured surface and spread out to desired thickness, raising edges just a bit. Place on a greased baking pan with some (gluten free) cornmeal sprinkled on it. This will help it from sticking as well as give it a crunchier crust. Brush with olive oil*, then bake at 425°F for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, then spread on your sauce and add toppings. Then reduce oven temperature to 400°F, and continue baking for another 15-25 minutes (depending on thickness) or until top is nicely browned.
*If you want a thicker crust - lightly drape a piece of greased plastic wrap over the dough and allow to rise for 30 minutes in a warm place before baking.
