Top Tips for Making Gluten Free Pizza

There is room for error with this pizza crust recipe. I have genuinely made this over 100 times now, and here are some variations that work:

  • Low on flour? Add a little more cheese to compensate.
  • Low on cheese? Add a little more flour to compensate.
  • Do not have or want to use butter? Use olive oil.
  • Do not have or low on mozzarella or parmesan cheese? I frequently use shredded cheddar in the crust and it works great.
  • Want a thick crust? Pour it as thick as you like in a round or square cake pan. Just make the initial bake a little longer. When I want a thick crust, I pour the batter into two pans instead of three and I bake for 20 minutes instead of 15 minutes the first go-around.
  • Want a thin crust? Pour and divide the batter into 4 pans instead of 3. Do not change the initial bake but instead bake for only 3 minutes instead of 6 on the second bake.
  • Want a bit more of a bite to your pizza? Use 1 cup of milk
  • Want a softer, chewier pizza? Use 1 1/2 cups of milk.
  • Low on milk? This is a flexible ingredient in this recipe. I’ve frequently used only 3/4 cup with success in a pinch.
  • Do not have milk? Water works just fine as far as texture and outcome goes! I just find milk adds a bit of a richer flavor.
  • You can omit or add any spices of your choice in this recipe.
  • You can use any toppings of your choice. You can make thin pizza, thick pizza, traditional red sauce pizza, pesto pizza, alfredo pizza, breadsticks, garlic breadsticks, cheesy breadsticks, you name it.
  • This pizza recipe works well when halved or doubled!

What are the Toppings as Shown?

After the initial bake, we like to run a stick of butter over the tops of the crusts, sprinkle with more Italian seasoning, and top with mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese. We then slice one into triangles, one into squares and one into rectangles (the kids love the variety of shapes!) and then serve with a side of marinara or pizza sauce for dipping (for the adults; the kids love as is!).

How to Store

Store in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to one week. Reheat on a cookie sheet in a 350° F oven for 5-10 minutes or until warmed throughout.

Can I use a different flour in this Homemade Gluten Free Pizza Crust?

This recipe was developed solely with tapioca starch in mind. Tapioca is what gives it a chewiness and stretchiness that is reminiscent of gluten containing flours! Having said that, while I haven’t tested it, if you’re feeling experimental, you can try replacing the tapioca starch with arrowroot starch (similar properties). If you do so, I would love to hear how it goes! A reader did inform me that replacing half of the tapioca flour with a gluten-free flour blend works well, too!

Unfortunately, no. This pizza crust batter is very liquid-y and sticky prior to baking and only works in baking pans with high edges that act as a sort of pizza mold. On the plus side, this makes this a very easy gluten-free pizza crust to make! It might not be what you’re used to working with, but trust me, it turns out beautifully once baked!

Author: Kristen Wood

Ingredients

  • 3 3/4 cups tapioca flour
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1-2 garlic cloves grated or minced
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk of choice I use unsweetened almond

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Drizzle a little olive oil into three 8-9" round and/or square cake pans or cast iron skillets. If your pan(s) of choice are not very non-stick, I recommend lining them with parchment paper. I love using my copper bake pans for this recipe.
  • In a large bowl combine flour, cheese, salt, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and garlic. Stir.
  • Pour in melted butter and stir again.
  • Pour in eggs and milk and then stir swiftly, scraping down the sides as needed until all of the flour is combined with the milk and eggs. The batter will be quite wet.
  • Divide the batter between the cake pans. I like to use an ice cream scoop to pour a scoop into each pan evenly until all batter is dispersed.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top as desired.
  • Turn the oven up to 400°F.
  • Bake for 6 minutes longer, and then turn the broiler on and broil until the toppings are melted and turning golden (2-3 minutes).
  • Remove from the oven, slice and enjoy!

  1. Thank you for this recipe. 😊 Is there a substitution for eggs if one wanted to make this a vegan crust?

    1. Hi, Havi! This recipe does work with flax eggs as a replacement for regular eggs (1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds + 3 tablespoons warm water per one regular egg). The texture will be a little different, but still quite delicious. I hope this helps!

  2. 3 stars
    Not sure what I did wrong, but came out verrry gummy. Outer crust was good…but inside not so much. Any suggestions on what I may have done wrong? Even cooked it a bit longer to make sure it was done. Will probably try again and maybe use a different size pan.

    1. Hi, Sue! Can I ask if you made any modifications to the recipe and also what size pan you used? The crust is a chewy crust but it should not be gummy. If it is gummy it could be a few different things, including the brand of tapioca flour used, too much liquid, not enough cook time, altitude etc. I would maybe try a different brand of tapioca, use slightly less liquid, cook a little longer, use a large pan and allow the crust to cool and set a bit before slicing and see how it works out for you. I’m sorry you had this experience!

      1. Hi Kristen
        May I ask what brand of Tapioca was used in the recipe? Thanks for your reply. I will try it again

  3. 5 stars
    This works GREAT as a bread machine pizza dough with a packet of yeast added if you like a more aerated, bread-like crust.
    I did not change a thing, other than adding yeast. I used the regular “dough” setting on my bread machine.
    The aeration is considerable — enough that this dough is no longer runny and you can spread it our on a pizza pan or cookie sheet that doesn’t have sides like a fry pan.
    The other thing is you could really get four or five thinner crusts out of the same recipe this way.
    I used my first crust for pizza. the second crust I simply baked as flat bread and was delighted to realize it rose high enough to use a sharp knife to split it into a pita for a giant sandwich!
    I froze the third crust into quarters and take them out as needed for quick pizza slices / pita sandwiches. (I put them in the air fryer on the lowest setting (200-250 F for a few minutes to defrost first if I am splitting for sandwiches or pita chips for dipping).
    Note 1: this is such a generous quantity of crust that I won’t add dry Italian seasonings to the dough in future as you can barely perceive them combined with zesty pizza toppings — but you can taste them in sandwiches/chips and may not want to (I don’t like oregano etc with tuna salad, smoked salmon cream cheese, curried chicken salad, etc.)
    Note 2: I know some cooks feel using baking powder & yeast in the same recipe is counterproductive but this is not the case, in my experience, you really do get more aeration.
    Note 3: I am not sensitive to Xanthan gum in small quantities, so I may add a pinch to the mix next time if I try to get four or five thinner pizza shells out of this recipe rather than three.

    1. amazing thoughts I had but didn’t act on… lol did it give any yeasty flavor is what I want to know though? I halved it and kept overnight in ninja jar and blended before precooking single pies in cast iron skillet using a springform round to build up to the edge. flip after it seems dry on top. I used the brown crumbles from ghee in skillet to give a more complex flavor and thought it very nice!

      1. 5 stars
        Yes, but yeasty in a good way, like traditional semolina/wheat crust. I’m ready to make this again today!

    2. Noticed you made in a bread machine! I have a small bread machine, should I half the recipe you think?

  4. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious; thank you for this fantastic recipe! Very straightforward and easy to make. The dough came out perfectly. I will make it again!!

  5. 5 stars
    I have a few friends who eat gluten-free diets who also love pizza – saving your recipe now for all those future dinner parties!

  6. 5 stars
    I’ve been gluten free for about a year and pizza is one of the things I miss the most! But thanks to your recipe I can make delicious gluten free pizza that tastes just like regular pizza! Thank you!

    1. Hi, Kathy – yes, you most certainly can cut down or even omit, if need be. It really just enhances the flavors a bit, but will work just fine without. I hope you enjoy!

      1. Thanks for the quick reply. Even reducing it will help me a lot. Now, let’s have some pizza!!

        1. 5 stars
          I was finely able to make this tonight and it is excellent! Thank you so much for this recipe. It will be my go to from now on.

  7. 5 stars
    Very good for GF cheese bread/garlic cheese fingers. Also topped with bruschetta, parm and parsley, Very versatile!

  8. 5 stars
    That pizza looks amazing. Recently I started the GF diet and now I’m excited to give your recipe a try.

  9. 5 stars
    We have got to try this! My youngest is gluten-free and loves pizza and we have tried so many gross pizza crusts.

      1. Hi, Natasha! Yes, it is the exact same recipe (save for maybe a different brand of cheese/sauce) and I cut it like breadsticks in the video, but that’s just how we enjoy this pizza sliced! 🙂

  10. 5 stars
    Love that you can still make a ‘proper’ pizza crust that’s gluten-free. Thanks for all the handy expert tips too… can’t wait to try it!

  11. 5 stars
    This recipe is a game changer for my family! Not only did my 12 year old with celiac love this…but the rest of my family did too!! We made both regular and breakfast pizzas!! Topped with scrambled eggs , cheese, and whatever other toppings you want! My family of 6, along with friends, devoured them all!! I’m so excited about this! Thank you!!

    1. Hi Lisa, I have not tested it without cheese myself, but several readers have made with dairy-free cheese with great results. If you omit it, it should still make a decent crust, but it will likely be less “chewy” without it. I hope this helps!

  12. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for this recipe! It’s blown my mind and changed my world (literally) while I’ve been on a candida/anti-inflammatory diet. Deliciously chewy, the perfect base for cheese and topics, absolutely love it. Thank you!

  13. What am I doing wrong? I cut the recipe in half and carefully measured, and didn’t substitute anything. The top looks beautiful, but the center is like pudding.

    It’s cut into slices, and back in the oven. At this point, I’ve doubled the second bake time. I want it to be successful—can you help? Thanks!

    1. Hi Myra – I’m sorry to hear that! What you’re describing sounds as if it hasn’t baked long enough, though I’m very surprised it still hasn’t set in the middle with double the bake time. If you are certain all ratios are correct, I could only guess that there might be a difference in oven temperatures or altitude, etc. May I ask what brand of tapioca flour you used? Again, I’m sorry you’re having this experience…that is very strange!

      1. Hi, Kristin! Thanks for responding. I used the tapioca flour from nuts.com. If I try it again, I would make the initial bake longer, I think. Maybe it’s my oven? It’s an electric oven, but I preheated it. Thanks again!

  14. 5 stars
    I LOVE this recipe. It is so tasty, I honestly prefer it over any other homemade dough I’ve attempted to make. Also it’s so fast and much easier than any dough recipe I’ve tried. I’ve made it 3 times and played around with the flour a bit. I love it as it’s written but found solely tapioca was very chewy, like Brazilian cheese bread. To make it a little less chewy I did 2 cups tapioca flour, 1 cup 1:1 gf flour, and 3/4 cup of white rice flour. Still turned out great! And has little more “bread like” texture in my opinion.

        1. Hi! Yes, you can. If you do that, you can use all the batter to make one larger, thicker pizza or you can pour about 2/3 the batter into a larger pan like that, and the rest into an 8-9″ for average thickness. I hope this helps!

  15. 5 stars
    I love how versatile this recipe is! It’s great for pizza or breadsticks and my family loves it! So delicious!

  16. 5 stars
    This pizza crust turned out perfectly and tasted just like regular pizza dough!! I couldnt believe how close it was without the xanthan gum! Thanks so much for a great recipe!

  17. 5 stars
    I love this pizza dough. It is an excellent gluten free recipe and perfect for my husband’s diet.

  18. 5 stars
    I have to admit, I was skeptical about this recipe. I have never baked with *only* tapioca flour. BUT, the reviews sold me. They were right!! My son and husband loved it too, and between the three pans, we have enough for leftovers tomorrow night. I like that it made three pans as I was able to personalize the pizzas (my husband is a meat-only pizza fan, whereas the kids and I love tomatoes and such on ours). The flavor was rich and very tasty. Nice and soft texture. My son immediately said I had to make them again. Definitely keeping this recipe in my back pocket.

  19. Bonjour Désolé pour un moi un raté complet, la pâte n’a pas cuite comme il faut pourtant j’ai bien fait comme cela était expliqué je ne sais pas pourquoi cela n’a pas marché

    Une autre question pour vous , levure chimique c’est bien la poudre à pâte

    Merci je suis toute ouverte pour votre réponse comment corriger cela

    1. Hi! I’m sorry to hear that. Yes, the baking powder is correct. Do you happen to have a picture you can email me or can you elaborate on what was wrong with the dough? Did you make any substitutions at all? It should be a very wet liquid batter before baking and after baking it is chewy in texture, not quite like a conventional dough. I look forward to hearing back!

  20. 5 stars
    I was skeptical and I’m elated to report that this recipe is amazing! I sautéed onion and mushroom with olive oil and onion salt. Topped with Primal Kitchen unsweetened pizza sauce made with avocado oil. I used shredded mozzarella and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Very thankful to have stumbled upon this wonderful recipe! One question. Does the crust freeze well? My husband is having back surgery and looking for simple and quick meals that are also delicious.

    1. I’m so happy to hear that! Thank you for sharing. Those topping choices sound great! You can freeze them. I like to freeze after the first bake and then top and proceed as instructed, though frozen it takes more like 10 minutes for the second bake. I hope this helps! 🙂

    1. Hi Melissa! As it is a loose batter, you really need something with at least 1/2″ sides. If your pizza pan has a raised edge it may work, otherwise anything that will allow the batter to hold shape should work (casserole dish, loaf pan, etc.). I hope this helps!

    1. Hi Jen! Yes, you can. It will not be quite as fluffy but it will still be rather tasty. I’ve made it without the eggs and also with a few spoonfuls of ground flaxseed as a replacement, both with similar results. I hope this helps!

      1. 5 stars
        This was awesome! I did not add egg and it was still a great crust! I also used vegan cheese and it worked well.
        THANK YOU!!!

    1. Hi, Lisa! You can substitute with arrowroot starch for very similar results (or likely any starch). I haven’t tested it, but some people have told me they have had success with cassava and some GF all-purpose blends, but it likely doesn’t quite have the same texture as when using a starch. I hope this helps! 🙂

  21. I want to make the whole recipe but will only be using one tonight. Should I freeze the pizza shell without toppings? Or with toppings ? If without, do I finish cooking the shell, freeze, (thaw or not), then add toppings?

    1. Hi Kate – After the first bake, you can let the crusts cool, top with toppings and freeze. Then bake frozen (no thawing necessary), starting at Step 8, though it will take a touch longer than 6 minutes (more like 10-12). I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy!

  22. 5 stars
    OMG!!! I cannot tell you how many gluten free, yeast free pizza crusts I’ve tried. This one nailed it. My husband hopes I can find that recipe again the next time I make pizza, as he’s had to suffer through MANY not so successful attempts. Thank you!!

  23. I saved this recipe to use for a grilled chicken and roasted red pepper pizza recipe for my husband and I to enjoy, as regular wheat flour gives him heartburn. It came out of the oven and we both tried it and couldn’t stop eating it until it was gone and now I am making a second one for the actual pizza (cut the recipe in half the first time). Soooooo goooood. <3 As a side note I used an iron skillet and leftover melted butter to prevent sticking and it turned out perfectly. There were air bubbles but i attribute that to my being a noob when it comes to baking and probably over-mixing. Thank you!!

  24. Hi there! I don’t even know if you’ll see this comment in time but here’s hoping you do!

    I’m going to try your crust recipe tomorrow but I have one quick question… do you shred the cheese yourself or buy something already shredded? I know that shredded cheeses are sometimes coated in flour to prevent caking so that’s why I usually shred cheese for pizza myself. However, I usually end up with puddles of water (I guess?) on top of my pies because I guess the cheese is releasing too much moisture maybe? Any suggestions to fix that before I end up with that same problem using your recipe?

    Looking forward to trying your crust!! Thank you!!

    1. Hi there! I’ve made this with both my own shredded and store-bought shredded cheeses with good results before! When it comes to store-bought, I am quite fond of Tillamook which is considered gluten-free. I’ve never encountered excessive moisture from shredding my own for this particular pizza. I hope this helps and I hope you enjoy! 🙂

  25. 5 stars
    Hi Kristen,
    My daughter and myself followed the recipe except we made it in the Airfryer pan which is a smaller size than the pans you used. We made the crust thick and during the second round we topped it with pesto sauce, chilli garlic sauce, sautéed onions, red peppers, mushrooms and topped it with some grated mozzarella cheese. They were so yummy……thanks for sharing the recipe!!!

  26. This is delicious!! Made it last night and it was so good!! Can you freeze the untopped crusts? And if so do you thaw it before you too it for the second bake or bake from frozen? Thank you my gf kids really liked this 🙂

    1. Hi Meghan, I’m so happy to heat that! Thank you for sharing. 🙂 Yes, you can freeze them and bake frozen. You still bake at 400F for that second bake, and it usually takes a touch longer than 6 minutes (more like 10-12 mins), but still works well!

  27. 4 stars
    I made this tonight and was happy with a couple of adaptations. I lined the cake pans with parchment and divided batter between them. One had slightly more batter, and at the end if the recommended bake time was still quite soft. So I removed them from the cake pans and transferred to a baking sheet. The parchment was very hard to remove from the slightly thicker crust. I turned up the heat to 400° and baked an additional 5 minutes before topping and returning to the oven. That was fine for the thinner one, but the thicker one could have baked longer untapped to yield a better texture.

  28. I made this recipe tonight, but I must have done something wrong. I was crumbling as I took it out of the pan. Not sure what I did wrong, but will try it again.

    1. Hi Karen – yes, that is an extremely odd result for this particular recipe as it a very well binded batter usually! I would be curious to know if you made any substitutions of any sort? I’m sorry that happened and I hope you have much better results the second time around! Keep in mind that the batter should be slightly wet and runny before baking, just to make sure you’re on the right track!

  29. I would love to know how you make your garlic bread? So looking forward to making this tonight!

    1. Hi Gabrielle – we like to grate 2-3 cloves into the batter before baking, and pour the batter into 8×8 square pans, then after the first bake sprinkle it with italian seasoning and garlic salt (or a combo of garlic powder + salt), and then optionally top with a little parmesan before the second bake and then slice into rectangles when finished. I hope you enjoy!

  30. So easy to make and so yummy!! I used dairy-free cheese and it turned out great (I used goveggie cheese, I don’t know how other kinds would work)

    1. I’m so happy to hear this! I really appreciate you sharing your experience with dairy-free cheese, thanks!

  31. Made this last night ( didn’t have full quantity tapioca flour so substituted (approx 50:50) some gF flour blend). The texture was fine with this and the whole recipe is fantastic ! The pizza / garlic mozzarella bread I made was devoured by everyone including the non-coeliacs in the house. Hubby and son coeliac and are v happy. This recipe is a definite keeper – thank you!

    1. Nothing makes me happier than to receive comments like this. 🙂 I so appreciate the feedback, Neeve! And, I’m glad you all enjoyed it! 🙂

  32. Have you ever frozen the leftovers. I made two of these and I have a whole one leftover that I would like to freeze.

    1. Hi, Amanda! Yes, you can freeze it. Just make sure to let it defrost for at least 1/2 hour before baking! 🙂

  33. Made this last night and halved the recipe using one egg. My coeliac daughter and husband really enjoyed it. It’s look strange when you make it as it really is like a lumpy batter. But it works. And we half baked one with no topping and today topped it and had it for lunch it was even better. Great quick pizza recipe.

  34. Literally the best pizza I’ve ever made and so simple!! My husband and son were absolutely raving about it. Like RAVING!!

    1. I cannot begin to tell you how happy that makes me! I’m so glad you feel the way we do about it, and I’m so happy you enjoyed it! I greatly appreciate you sharing. 🙂

    2. Hey Kristen,
      Have you ever tried this recipe without the eggs, maybe substituting something in their place (flax egg, chia egg, “egg replacer egg”)? We don’t wat eggs, so looking for an alternative. If not, I’ll try one of them out and let you know how it works. Thanks!

      1. Hi Michele – actually, yes! I’ve been making a version without eggs by adding approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons ground flaxseed in place of the 3 eggs, and adding about 1/2 cup cheese more to the batter. Then, on the second cook at 400F, I cook for around 10 minutes rather than 6. Essentially, I find adding more cheese and cooking longer to compensate for the lack of eggs. If you try this or another eggless way, I would love to hear about it! 🙂

    1. Hi Jana – I haven’t so I can’t testify to how well it would work, but it has been on my list of things to test out. If you try it, I would love to hear about it! -Kristen

    1. Hi Danielle,

      I haven’t tried it, so I cannot say in all honesty that it would work well, but I do think there is a chance that it would, especially if you are referring to white rice flour. If you do try it, I would love to hear about it!
