Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put the flour, salt, olive oil, yeast, rosemary and pepper into a food processor. Pulse until well mixed. With the motor running, add enough water to bring the flour to a soft, but not sticky dough. Tip onto a work surface and knead until it comes together.
  2. Halve the dough. If you only have one shelf in your oven and are cooking in batches, wrap one half in cling film. Roll out each half directly onto lightly oiled baking sheets into very thin 25cm/10in rounds. Do not form a rim at the edge. Spread the tomato topping over each piece of dough, almost to the edge. Leave to stand for 15 mins. Bake in the hot oven for 12-15 mins or until the dough is crisp.
  3. Lift each round onto a plate and serve warm. Pass the toppings around and let each diner assemble their own pizza.

Great recipe - light tasty pizza base. My first try after going non gluten, and my meat and gluten eating partner thoroughly enjoyed the recipe. I just used tomato puree and pesto as a base and threw on tomates, courgettes, mushrooms, red pepper and some grated cheese. The rosemary really gave the base a lift.

This is the best homemade pizza I've had since going gluten free. It's so easy to do too!! I put basil & oregano in my base and had mozzarella and courgettes for the topping.
Finally I've found a base worthy of my favourite Saturday night meal :)

This pizza receipe is SO SO tasty, honestly the best pizza I've ever tasted and I will never buy a pre-packed gluten free pizza again! Took me no time at all. LOVED, thank you!

This pizza drew me because it looked so fresh and light. The diners don't have issues with gluten, so tried it with a pack of pizza base mix (adding rosemary and pepper to the dry ingredients before making the dough). I brought it to the table ready topped with mozzarella, tomatoes, avocado and rocket. It looked summery and healthy, tasted great too - empty plates all round. A deceptively quick post-work day supper.

Hi. Anyone know if the dough can be frozen and defrosted at a later date?

didnt work out too well for me, maybe I did it too thickly, I dunno but I was a bit disappointed with it.

I added some grated parmesan cheese and oregano instead of rosemary to the dough. It was fantastic!
I use Schaer gluten free flour.

Answer For Christina: I use Doves Farm Wheat & Gluten Free Flour - there are several different ones but I use the one with the picture of the pizza on for this recipe - it has pizza base recipe on the back too.

I don't bother with a food processor i just mix by hand and its fine (less washing up!)

Good Luck!

Can I ask what kind of gluten free flour you have been using? Or what brand? Thanks!

This is a great recipe. I even took out the yeast, and it still tasted good.

Such an amazing wheat/gluten free recipe and so easy to make. I made this for my boyfriend and his parents (all who do eat wheat/gluten) and they loved it!! We followed the recipe exactly and it was just lovely - the great thing is you can basically throw anything on it that you have lying around!

Will make again and again!
