Gluten Free Pizza

Feeling inspired a few weeks ago I made my first gluten free pizza, using the Gluten Free Squash Bread recipe as the gluten free pizza base. Using this recipe also means the pizzas are not only gluten free, they are yeast free too.

Gluten free pizza recipe:

Pizza topping:

  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • herbs to taste
  • 2 chopped tomatoes
  • salt and pepper

Optional topping ideas: thinly sliced peppers, buffalo mozzarella, parma ham, thinly sliced chillies.

Place squash in oven on a baking tray and roast for 45 mins until very soft.

Pizza Topping

Pizza Topping

Whilst the squash is cooking you can make the pizza topping, which is a simple tomato sauce. combine the puree, herbs, chopped tomatoes and season to taste. Chill in the fridge until ready.

Once the squash is ready, remove from oven and cool.Peel the skin and remove the seeds from the squash. Transfer to a bowl and mash well. Season to taste. You will need around 375g of squash for the ingredient rations above, so adjust ingredients where required so as not to waste any squash.

Add the flour, gluten free baking powder and herbs to the squash and mix well. Add mix to a food processor and blend. Add in olive oil and enough water to make a doughy texture (65ml water). Remove mix from food processor and place on a lightly floured board and knead until soft and spongy. Adding a little more oil or flour to get the right texture.

Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Gluten Free Pizza Dough

Once the dough is ready shape into small ball. On a floured board flatted the dough ball to make a pizza base. Top each small pizza with a spoonful of the tomato topping and then any of the optional toppings. N.B You do not need cheese to make a pizza dairy free ones taste great too.

Once the bases are prepared place the gluten free pizzas on a baking tray for 20-30mins, 200c or gas mark 6.

Give them a try these gluten free pizzas, are really simple and tasty too. Love to know what you think and any topping suggestions.

      Hello Sally, that’s a slight error on my recipe with my wording, I have updated it now. Once the squash dough is ready and rolled into small thin pizza shapes you can add the toppings and just cook all together. Hope that helps, love to know how you get on. Miranda

    Hi
    this looks like a great recipe. Can I use rice flour or something similar? I am allergic to corn so I can’t use some gluten-free flours.
    Thanks 🙂

      Hello Jo – I would do a combination of buckwheat and rice flour, as the taste can work better when baking. Let us know how you get on.
