A Delicious Gluten Free Pizza Recipe

One of the most popular foods of all time is pizza and everyone seems to love it, from young to old, and from meat lovers to vegetarians. The universal appeal of pizza is simple: delicious crust, savory tomato or white sauces and the toppings that seem to be unlimited in options. For those who must limit their intake of gluten due to celiac disease, there is a marvelous gluten free pizza recipe that can make eating pizza a joy and a pleasure without the worry of the wheat gluten side effects.

Creating a delicious pizza without the wheat flour is actually something that is not only possible but simple. There are a few important tricks to know and the ingredients will be a bit different but the outcome is the same and some say even better! A thin crust pizza is within reach for those who may have thought they could never eat pizza again.

The gluten free pizza recipe that can bring pizza back to the table for those with gluten intolerance is created from many of the same ingredients as mainstream pizza. The crust will be created from alternative flour, sometimes rice flour is used and there are others that can also be chosen for their flavor and suitability to the dough.

Toppings for the pizza will be nearly identical to those used on wheat pizzas, the difference is that when you are creating this specialty pizza, you will need to carefully read the labels and be on the lookout for those products that use gluten in them. One example is pepperoni, there are some that include gluten as a binding or filler and for that ingredient, use the specifically labeled "gluten free" brand. The same rule holds true for the sauces you use. Making them from scratch ensures purity and if you use a pre-made store bought brand, be careful to check the label for any stray gluten that you may not expect.

Here is a simple recipe to get you started. This is the recipe for the crust. Mix 1 cup tapioca flour, two teaspoon of unflavored gelatin powder, two teaspoon salt, two teaspoons of xanthan gum, one package yeast granules, two teaspoon of sugar, three teaspoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of cider vinegar, 1/2 to 1 cup of lukewarm water. Mix into a dough and roll it onto a greased pizza pan then bake your pizza in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes.

The gluten free pizza recipe can bring the joy of pizza parties, pizza with movies and plain old fashioned pizza dinners back to the family who has been careful about the special dietary needs of someone in the home.
