Gluten free pizza crust recipe

Are you looking for a quick, tasty, gluten free pizza crust recipe? This pizza is also yeast free and great for an easy gluten free lunch or supper. 

This recipe evolved from one of my favourite breakfasts, potato scones.

It doesn't require any rising time and you can use up the leftover mashed potato from the night before. The quantities do not have to be exact just try to keep them roughly in 3, 2, 1 proportions. The quantities given make a pizza for 2 hungry people or 3 with normal appetites.

I have suggested using a ready mixed gluten free flour for simplicity. Try to avoid one that contains potato flour for obvious reasons!

Use your favorite toppings to make your gluten free pizza extra special.

Ingredients for pizza base

  • 300g leftover potato (mashed with a little butter or vegetable margarine)
  • 200g Gluten Free flour mix
  • 100g margarine or butter

Ingredients for toppings

Your choice or try the following:

  • 1 tin chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 tin ham (check ingredients are gluten free)
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 large mushroom
  • 4oz grated cheddar cheese

Making your gluten free pizza

Heat the oven to 200C/400F. Grease your pizza plate or tin.

Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Cut the margarine into small pieces and rub into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Add the mashed potato to the flour mixture and mix throughly until the dough forms a smooth ball.

Place the ball of dough in the centre of your cooking tray/dish and press it into a roughly circular shape. You may want to push up the edges a little to prevent the tomatoes sliding off. Keep the dough thin and cover the base.

Mix the tinned tomatoes with the tomato puree in a jug. Then spread onto the gluten free pizza base.

Slice the ham and lay on top of the tomatoes. Arrange the sliced mushroom and tomato attractively between the slices of ham.

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top.

Cook for 20 minutes or until the pizza crust begins to turn golden.

Serve the light, crispy gluten free pizza with salad for a quick meal.

If you want to make the dough into traditional potato scones add a little gluten free baking powder to the mixture to help it rise. Cook them on a hot griddle for around 4-5 minutes each side.
