Having a few friends and family members on gluten free diets, a good gluten free pizza recipe has been a bit of a holy grail for me over the last few years. This recipe is the closest that I have come – and it is quite delicious!


  • 150g White rice flour
  • 80g Tapioca starch
  • 30g Fine polenta
  • 6g Guar or xanthan gum
  • 6g Sea salt
  • 10g Sugar
  • 10g Baking powder
  • 25ml Olive oil
  • 1 Egg (this can be omitted to make a vegan base, add a little more water instead)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir all of the dry ingredients together.
  2. Add the oil, egg and water and stir until the mixture is smooth. The consistency should be a thick, sticky paste.

Shaping the bases

    1. Place 2 squares of baking paper on a bench or peel and give them a light coat of oil.
    2. Before handling the mixture drizzle some olive oil into the bowl, and rub a little into your hands. This makes the bases much easier to shape and handle.
    3. Separate the mixture into 2 equal size lumps and place one on each square of paper. Drizzle a little more oil over the lump of dough.
    4. Using the palms of your hands, start to press the dough into a pizza shape. Try to get an even thickness of about 4 millimeters.
    5. Smooth any cracks around the edge and create a slightly raised rim.
    6. The base is now ready for your toppings! Once topped, use a peel to lift the pizza and greaseproof paper and slide onto a preheated pizza stone to bake.

    You do not specify in either recipe how much water to add

    Whoops! I will confirm how much water I use in the next couple of days, and add to the recipe. In the mean time, just add enough gradually to make a slightly sticky paste. You want to be able to flatten it without the edges cracking too much, but not so much that it is very sticky.
