Homeade n' Hearty Gluten-Free Pizza

by Amie on January 5, 2010

Last night I created a homemade gluten-free, dairy-free veggie pizza that had my taste buds dancin’ for more…it was fabulous (to say the least).  Here are the easy and delicious recipes for my pizza crust, sauce and topping.

Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup rice milk
  • 2 large eggs or egg substitute
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup rice flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup ripened avocado, mashed and slightly melted

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, beat together milk and eggs.  Add flours and salt.  Slowly add in avocado.
  • Transfer mixture to a 12 inch circle on a baking sheet or round pizza pan. Be sure to leave a thicker crust along the outsides to keep the sauce and vegetables from running onto the pan.
  • Top with sauce and vegetables of your choice (see below).
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until pizza is golden brown and fully cooked.

Gluten-Free Pizza Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce can) organic tomato sauce
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp. sage

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine all above ingredients and mix well.
  • Spread evenly atop unbaked crust.
  • Top with the following or any toppings of your choice:

Pizza Toppings

  • 1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. Nutritional yeast
  • 1 Fresh small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 Fresh small summer squash, sliced
  • 1/4 cup Fresh button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Fresh red peppers, diced

Simply add any or all of the above toppings to your pizza.  I enjoy sprinkling nutritional yeast and ground flax seeds atop my pizza…it adds a perfect nutty, cheese-like taste without the dairy!

Now that’s what I call a seriously delicious (and healthy) New York pizza!  Enjoy.

Very interesting. I would never have thought to put avocado into a dough. Have you tried this using plain soy milk?

Good Afternoon, Heather…I have not yet tried this using soy milk but I’m sure you can certainly substitute that in for the rice milk and it would taste delish! Let me know if you try it and how it tastes with the soy milk! Have a great day and enjoy the pizza!

Best,

Amie

So I know this isn’t necessarily a venue for asking questions… but. The Avocado, I need to removed and replace it with something else. My wife is allergic. I am assuming the reason for it is the fat content. can I just replace with another type of fat? bacon grease, mayo, shortening, lard, butter….?

Hi James; you can try using hummus or mashed beans!
