Gluten Free Herbed Pizza Crust - Wild Oats


This is my ultimate pizza crust. I love this. I temporarily lost the recipe but just recently got it back. It was listed on the Wild Oats website about 4 years ago when I first went gluten free and now that Whole Foods Market and Wild Oats merged the recipes are disappearing. I wrote to Whole Foods and the nice woman in customer service found it for me. I am so happy!

Gluten-Free Herbed Pizza Crust

This quick and easy crust will satisfy cravings for thin and crispy pizza.

Double the recipe, form into eight individual pizzas, par bake for 10 minutes, wrap and freeze for future use.
Prep Time: 15 minutes,
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Makes: One large pizza or 4 individual pizzas

1 envelope instant dry yeast
3/4 c. Organic Milk, warm (about 110°F)
1/2 tsp. raw honey
1 2/3 c. brown rice flour
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. xanthan gum
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Braggs apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 425°F. Dissolve yeast in a small bowl with milk and honey. Set aside. Sift together brown rice flour, tapioca flour, cornstarch, xanthan gum, sea salt and herbs. Whisk olive oil and vinegar together. Add to dry mixture. Mix. Add milk and yeast. Mix well. The dough should be soft and pliable. Turn onto a floured work surface (use rice flour) and knead gently for about a minute. Roll or pat dough into a 12-inch round, place on a pizza stone or lightly oiled pan. Crimp edges to hold in toppings. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, add toppings and bake 15-20 longer, or until the crust is lightly browned.


This is what the bottom of the crust looks like after baking.

This is how thick the crust is.

Enjoy!! Tomorrow I will bake it with the toppings I placed on top. It's pizza day at my kids school again.

Tonight I ordered some aluminum pizza pans (12") from buythecase.net plus I used BTCORD1 for my promo code to get $5 off. So the total shipped to me for 36 pans was $32. I will now have a way to make crusts in advance and even full pizza's and freeze them. ALDI'S has 2 gallon zipper bags that I believe will work for these pans. I need to make my pizza Friday's less stressful and also have the pizza's on hand for those nights when we would have ordered a pizza to be delivered.

To your health!

No I have not tried it. I have only used it for pizza crusts.
