Gluten-Free Chewy Pizza

Over a year ago, I made a thin-crust gluten-free pizza using all-purpose gluten-free flour. It was good, but a bit too crunchy for my liking with a tendency to burn quickly. This time I’m using rice flour for a chewier texture and am happy with the results!

gluten free pizza eat with meraki


  • Rice flour, 1 cup
  • Dry baking yeast, 2 tsp.
  • Egg, 1
  • Olive oil, 2 tbsp.
  • Warm water, 1/4 cup
  • Coconut sugar, 1/2 tbsp.
  • Salt, a dash

Mix water, yeast and sugar until the sugar is dissolved and let it sit for 5 min. 

In a separate bowl, mix rice flour, olive oil, egg and salt. 

Add your yeast mixture and start kneading. 

Cover it up and let it sit in a warm part of the house for an hour. 

Preheat your oven to 220C. 

After letting your dough rise (don’t expect it to grow massively), flatten it out on a baking sheet.

Bake for 8 min. 

Add your toppings and bake for another 5 min. until properly baked. I used a drizzle of olive oil and sliced mozzarella for my toppings this time so it required minimal cooking time. 

I added fresh arugula, smoked salmon, dill, capers and a drizzle of olive oil when the pizza was out! 

Tastes delicious fresh out of the oven!
