Step by step tutorial on how to make your own gluten free pizza dough at home that bakes up soft + chewy with a beautiful crisp finish.


  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp warm water (about 110’F)
  • 2 and 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (one packet)
  • 1 tbsp honey (or sugar to keep it vegan)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups gluten free baking flour (see note)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour (I use THIS blanched brand)
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk (like this
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Add yeast + honey to warm water (about 110’F) and stir to combine. Allow to sit for 10 minutes to activate the yeast. If it does not get nice + foamy, your yeast may not be fresh.
  2. In a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer) combine GF baking flour, almond flour, psyllium husk, baking powder, salt, yeast mixture, + olive oil. Mix on LOW to combine then increase speed to MEDIUM and work dough for 2-3 minutes until it is nice + smooth. The dough should resemble cookie dough and will be slightly sticky. If it feels wet or very sticky, add more gluten free baking flour one tablespoon at a time to thicken.
  3. With a spatula, scrape the dough into a ball at the bottom of the bowl, cover bowl, and put in a warm place to rise for one hour. (I use my oven with the light turned on.)
  4. After 50 minutes, preheat oven to 425’F (remove dough if you placed it in the oven.) Place a pizza stone/heavy pizza pan into oven to preheat for 10 minutes. 
  5. Meanwhile, lightly flour a piece of parchment paper and place dough ball in center. Gently press the dough into a 10 inch circle, dusting very lightly with flour if it feels too sticky. Pinch the edges up slightly to form a crust edge. Prick several times with a fork to prevent air bubbles on crust.
  6. Carefully remove the hot pizza stone/baking sheet from oven. Using the parchment paper, lift the pizza dough onto baking pan and par-bake for 10-12 minutes, until crust is just starting to brown.
  7. Remove from oven and turn heat up to 450’F. Add you favorite pizza toppings.
  8. Return to oven + bake for 8-10 minutes, until edges are golden + bottom is crisp. Allow to cool slightly before slicing.


Gluten Free Baking Flour:  You can totally use a pre-made 1:1 Gluten Free Baking Flour. I just prefer to mix my own as I have tons of flours in my pantry for baking bread. Here’s my current favorite recipe: 3/4 cup sorghum flour, 3/4 cup brown rice flour, 1/2 cup tapioca powder, and 1/4 cup sweet rice flour.
