I love cooking pizza and playing around with the various toppings, but I realized I never tried making my pizza gluten free.
So I wanted to test out a new dough recipe, tweaked to my flavor profiles, and this was my result. I topped the pizza with one of my favorite combinations of flavors: Some homemade Marinara Sauce, Fresh Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Slow Roasted Mini Heirloom Tomatoes and fresh Basil.
I must say, I was a little leery about Gluten Free dough (the dough is my favorite part of a pizza, and the thing I am usually most critical about when eating pizza), but I really liked the flavor and texture of this dough! I made my dough more on the thick side (because I like some chew to my dough) – but to create a more crisp crust, make two medium sized pizzas (instead of one large) and make the dough closer to ¼” thick – I made mine closer to ½”.
I also plan to play around with the amount of xanthan in my dough to play with the various textures it can achieve!

I make a large batch of tomato sauce and then freeze it in smaller containers for when I make pizza!
