As I’ve mentioned before, not only are we gluten-free and casein-free at our house but my son can’t have yeast either.  This makes it tricky for Daddy to make his favorite homemade pizza. We’ve been experimenting with some different recipes and mixes, but it’s been tough to find one that we could all agree on that we liked. Finally, I think we landed on something that meets the approval of all of us!

GFCF (and Yeast-Free too!) Pizza (Nick Rating = 4 Thumbs Up)

In a mixing bowl put:

2 cups all-purpose GF flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 tsp Xanthan Gum

In a separate bowl, mix:

1/2 to 2/3 cups rice milk

1 egg

2 Tbsp ghee (melted)


Add the wet ingredients to the dry all at once and mix well until dough forms.  Knead dough on floured surface and then roll out to desired pizza thinness. Put dough on pizza pan, add toppings, and bake for about 12 minutes.

*Photo above shows the following toppings – organic tomato paste with Italian seasoning; Daiya Cheese (a little yeast in this, but we allow it on special occasions); nitrate-free, organic pepperoni; and, nitrate-free, all-natural ground italian sausage.
