Best Homemade Gluten Free Pizza Crust

I found this recipe on Pinterest and we were thrilled with the results. I have tried about 3 other recipes prior to this one, but I couldn't have imagined how good this one would be! I'm so glad I gave it a try!

My son, Calvin, showing his pizza - topped with smoked sausage, cheese, and corn. 

My son, Keith, made his pizza dairy-free and he was asking to make pizza again the next day. It was a hit!

Best Homemade Gluten Free Pizza Crust

2 1/3 cup gluten free all-purpose flour, plus more for kneading the dough
1 envelope fast acting dry yeast
1 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp sugar

In a medium mixing bowl, combine warm water, sugar, and yeast. Allow to sit on the counter for 10 minutes, or until the yeast “blooms” (foam will start to form on the surface).

Add flour and salt to the water.
On a floured surface, knead the dough until a nice ball is formed.

In another clean mixing bowl, cover the dough ball with the olive oil (making sure to cover the entire ball).

Cover the bowl with a towel.

Let the dough rise in a warm area in the kitchen for 2 hours,

After two hours, punch the dough down, cover and allow to rise for another 30 minutes.

On a Silpat or parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spread out your dough with a spoon (you can either make two round pizzas or one large rectangular pizza or 3-4 individual-sized pizzas) - the dough is very soft, like thick cake batter. Don't worry - it bakes nicely!

Top with pizza sauce and toppings. 

Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes (about 18 for individual pizzas), or until the edges are browned and your cheese is bubbly.
