If you’re just starting to make your own gluten-free doughs, I recommend starting with a glutenfree breadstick or a pizza dough. Making pizza dough is very easy and doesn’t take a lot of time. This recipe will help you gain confidence in gluten-free doughs because it’s very elastic and easy to work with.

Normally gluten-free doughs tend to break or crumble and have no cohesion, but this dough is elastic. The key to making the dough elastic is to incorporate a gluten substitute such as psyllium husks into the dough. Psyllium is responsible for the cohesion and elasticity of the dough.

TIPS for the best glutenfree pizza dough

Here are some tips to make a delicious and crunchy glutenfree pizza dough

masa pizza casera sin gluten
  1. Bake the pizza in two stages To prevent the pizza from being raw on the inside and burnt on the outside, bake it in two batches. First, bake the pizza for 7 minutes with a little tomato sauce and oil on top. Once the dough is a little browned and cooked, you add the rest of the ingredients, either cheese, sweet ham… In this way the dough is cooked inside and slightly crispy outside.
  2. Brush the edges of the dough with a little olive oil before baking.
    The olive oil will help you get crispy and tasty edges.
  3. Psyllium husk
    Don’t forget to add psyllium husk to the dough. It is an important ingredient to get an elastic dough that you can actually knead and work with.

A gluten substitute

To make an elastic (gluten-free) pizza dough that you can knead well, you need an ingredient to hold all the ingredients together. Gluten-free flours do not make a dough elastic. A gluten-free dough tends to break easily and is difficult to knead. To prevent your pizza dough from breaking, you need a gluten substitute. In this recipe, I used psyllium husk powder.

Flours and starches for this gluten-free pizza

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you substitute the ingredients given in the recipe, you will not get the same result. With the substitutions I gave, you won’t get exactly the same result, but it’s close enough and you’ll get a good pizza dough (not the same, but good).

Don’t substitute starch for flour. Starch helps to get a soft and fluffy crumb.

Use flours and starches that are certified gluten-free and free of contaminants.

Once the yeast is activated, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix well and add the remaining ingredients, flours, starch, psyllium husks and salt.

Mix with a spatula until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Add another 2 tablespoons of olive oil and start kneading with your hands.

Form a ball and spread some olive oil on the bottom of the bowl and on the top of the dough (this will prevent it from drying out).

Cover the bowl and let the dough rest in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours or until you see that it has increased in volume.

Place the pizza dough on a baking sheet and brush the edges of the dough with a little olive oil and add some tomato sauce to the center of the pizza. The tomato sauce will prevent the dough from drying out during the first baking.

Bake the pizza for 7-10 minutes at 180ºC or until the edges are lightly browned.

Take the pizza out of the oven and spread some more tomato sauce and cheese on it. Bake again for about 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

When the pizzas are nicely browned and the cheese has melted, take the pizzas out of the oven and garnish with some oregano or fresh basil.

Can you freeze the dough?

Yes, you can freeze the pizza dough without any problems. Prepare the dough by following all the steps up to number 7. Stretch the dough and shape it into a pizza. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and freeze. I recommend that before freezing, you make sure you have a free compartment in the freezer so you can lay the dough flat and it won’t bend or deform.

Can I substitute psyllium husk powder?

No, psyllium husk powder cannot be substituted. It is an important ingredient to replace gluten and get an elastic and homogeneous dough. If you want, you can use psyllium husks, but you will have to add 1 or 2 grams more. Psyllium husks powder absorb much more water than psyllium husks.

If you don’t have psyllium husks, you could use xanthan gum, but I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH XANTHANUM GUM IS NEEDED TO REPLACE PSYLLIUM HUSK. I don’t recommend that you substitute psyllium husks.

Do not substitute psyllium husk powder for any other ingredient.

Can yeast be substituted for sourdough?

Yes, you can substitute gluten-free sourdough for the yeast, but you will need to change the amount of water and flour in the dough. I am making several pizza dough experiments with sourdough right now. As soon as I finish it, I’ll post it here for you to check out.

Can I substitute the packet of dry yeast and use fresh yeast?

Yes, you can substitute the dry yeast, but I don’t know exactly how much fresh yeast you need.

Can I replace the packet of dry baker’s yeast and use baking powder?

No, you can’t replace the dry yeast with baking powder. In order for the pizza dough to ferment and rise well, you need dry yeast.

Do not substitute starch for fine flour.
