Recipe: Delicious & Quick Gluten Free Pizza Crust

As a fellow gluten free eater, you know exactly what it feels like to not be able to eat your favorite foods – like pasta, bread, or even pizza.

You salivate and practically drool at the mere smell of fresh bread wafting out of a bakery as you pass by. You want to just be able to order anything off a menu at your favorite restaurant, but have quickly learned that very few offer a large gluten free selection. You may even stop in your tracks when you smell the hand tossed pizza that was just delivered being carried through the house during the Super Bowl Party, leaving a trail of delicious scent, beckoning you to follow and dive in.

Those of us that have to eat gluten free certainly do miss out on a lot. Or we have to eat “cardboard” 10 times before finding a good-tasting brand. However, the good news is there are brands out there that have figured out the secret to successful gluten free baking and have made their products available for us to use in our homes. And the best part – they taste delicious so we no longer feel totally deprived!

Pamela’s brand of gluten free goodness has been a favorite of mine since the day I tried her chocolate cake mix! The company also makes Baking & Pancake Mix, Pizza Crust Mix, Brownie Mix, Chocolate & Vanilla Cake Mixes, and so much more – all gluten free!

Friday night is our pizza night, which makes it very interesting since we are gluten free. However, it also gives us an opportunity quiet often to try new products or new things with products we already use.

I had Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix just sitting on my counter, taunting me. Then I had a brilliant idea – make our pizza crust out of the mix! It’s great for everything from waffles and pancakes to biscuits and amazing pumpkin loaf.

I got out my ingredients…

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

~ 1 1/2 cups Pamela’s Baking Mix
~ 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
~ 3 tbsp olive oil
~ 1/4 cup water
~ 1 egg
~ 1/2 tsp sea salt
~ 1 tsp basil

Mix all ingredients together until well blended and kneed between your hands to make sure it’s mixed thoroughly. Dough will be sticky.

Reduce oven temp to 375. Roll dough out on a greased, flat pan, like a 9 x 13 baker or cookie sheet to desired thickness (I did about 1/4 – 1/2 inch).

Bake approximately 15 – 18 minutes or until slightly golden on the edges.

Remove from oven, top with sauce, cheese, veggies, meat – whatever your pizza topping preferences are.

Place back in oven for 5 – 8 minutes to melt the cheese.

Enjoy!

Variation: Leave the Parmesan and basil out of the dough to have a more plain crust. Personally, I like to top my pizzas with spinach, tomato slices, etc., so mine tastes the best with the basil / Parmesan mix!
