  • 2 cups apple juice, baby bottle warm
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast


  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 3/4 cup Masarepa (pre-cooked white corn flour)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum (if the gluten free flour you are using does not contain xanthan gum)

  • Non-stick vegetable spray


  • 15 ounces gluten free pizza sauce
  • 8 ounces pizza cheese
  • additional toppings of your choice
  • 1 pizza stone - preheated

This is the Gluten Free Pizza you've been waiting for. Make sure to follow the instructions and notes for the absolute best results.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F or 375°F if using a convection oven. Place the pizza stone in the oven to preheat. It should be completely hot before you place the crust in the oven.
  2. Spray one 15 or 16 inch pizza pan, or two 12 inch pans with non-stick vegetable spray. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, or large mixing cup, combine the warm apple juice, yeast, and sugar. Allow the yeast to proof (i.e. foam and bubble).
  4. In a large bowl, combine the gluten free flour, Masarepa corn flour, salt, baking powder, and xanthan gum (if using). Whisk to thoroughly blend.
  5. Make a well in the center of the flour. Add the proofed yeast and olive oil. Fold the wet and dry ingredients together. Allow the dough to rest for 2 minutes.
  6. Press the dough onto the prepared pizza pan. You can even use a rolling pin to evenly spread the dough. Press around the edges of the dough to make a crust.
  7. Spread 1/2 of the sauce (around 1 cup), onto the crust.
  8. STOP!
  9. Do not add any additional toppings at this point.
  10. Place the saucy crust into the pre-heated oven on top of the pizza stone. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the crust starts to brown on the edges. Remove from the oven.
  11. Spread an additional 1/2 - 1 cup of sauce onto the baked saucy crust. Top with cheese and additional toppings. Bake for an additional 15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  12. Remove from the oven. Let the pizza cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
  13. Makes 1 large 15 or 16 inch pizza or 2 12 inch pizzas.


  • 1. For a crispier pizza crust, slide the pizza directly onto the pizza stone from the pan, after the first baking and all the toppings have been added. Bake as directed above.
  • 2. It's really important to have a pizza stone to crisp the crust of this pizza. If you don't have a pizza stone, don't despair. You can bake this pizza in the oven without a stone...the crust wont be as good.
  • 3. Preheat the pizza stone. Preheat the pizza stone. Preheat the pizza stone.
