Pizza Dough

If you’re anything like me, the thought of making your own pizza sounds daunting and a recipe for disaster. Well, I’m here to tell you that we’re both wrong! Pizza-making is a fun way to make dinner times exciting and it doesn’t have to be as complicated as it sounds. Now, if you’re gluten-free, you’re thinking, “yes but it’s not that simple for me”. True but I’m also here to make it a little bit easier, here is a mix of recommendations from gluten-free pizza dough flour to all-out gluten-free pizza kits.

First Things First, the Flour…

Caputo Gluten Free Flour

An Italian brand is always a good start and these guys have been making pizza flour since 1924, so they know what they’re doing. Their gluten-free flour is on the pricey side but it’s worth it!

Doves Freee Pizza Base Mix

What About a Gluten-Free Kit?

Somewhere In Between…

A Few Tips to Send You On Your Way…

To get the kneading down, it’s all about stretching and shaping which can look a lot easier than it is! Städler have made a great tutorial video to help you get the basics down and perfect your technique!

My second top tip is for cooking! If you don’t have a pizza oven, put your pizza in a frying pan on the hob first. This crisps up the base to ensure an even bake and also prevents the pizza dough from falling through the grate trays in your oven!
