Gluten free vegan pizza

Vegan gluten free pizza crust

It’s not easy to make a real Italian pizza while sticking to a naturally gluten free and vegan recipe. However, this dough is the amazing result of several experiments. It’s the best crust you could get with all natural gluten free flours, dairy free, egg-free, without kneading at all. Most importantly, guess what – it’s even gum free!

It can be made with fresh or dry yeast and a few gluten-free flours.

As a result, this vegan gluten free pizza crust recipe is brown and crispy on the bottom with the classic chewy pizza texture inside and a puffy border!

    Can you put all ingredients in a jar for the dry mix part?
    I want a mix I can grab for faster crust.

    • Yes, of course. I keep all the dry ingredients pre-mixed (rice, chickpeas, starch and psyllium) and use 160 g for one pizza, when I need.
