Pizza Crust (Gluten-Free)
The texture is slightly different from traditional pizza crusts, but it has a great flavor.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 6
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup warm water (105°F to 110°F)
- 1½ teaspoons dry, active yeast
- 2/3 cup white rice flour
- 1/3 cup potato starch
- 1 tablespoon potato flour
- 1½ teaspoons melted vegetable shortening
- ½ teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425°F. Grease a pizza pan and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix sugar and water, then dissolve the yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water. Let set until yeast bubbles and the quantity doubles—about 10 minutes.
Add all the rest of the ingredients, using enough of the remaining water to get a soft dough. It should be thick enough to pick up and knead, but feel very soft.
Pour dough on pizza pan and spread with a spatula. Leave more at edges for raised sides. Add sauce and toppings of your liking.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
