Easy Vegan Gluten-free Pizza Crust

August 15, 2018

Friends, it’s here! A vegan, gluten-free pizza crust that’s easy to make with ingredients you probably have on hand right now. Not to mention, it’s perfectly crisp on the edges and firm but tender in the center. Whoop!

Let’s make gluten-free pizza dreams come true!

Stirring together dry ingredients- almond flour, potato starch, arrowroot starch, flaxseed meal, baking soda, baking soda, and spices for Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza Crust

This recipe requires 10 simple ingredients and comes together in less than 45 minutes from start to finish!

The base flours are comprised of almond flour, potato starch, and arrowroot starch. Potato and arrowroot starch are particularly great for this recipe because they help make a firm and crispy-on-the-edges crust that’s also tender in the center.

No gooey center, no cardboard edges – just pure, airy, delicious goodness.

We also included some flaxseed for binding (and fiber), olive oil for moisture (which you can sub for water if oil-free), oregano and garlic for added flavor, and vinegar and baking soda to help the crust rise a bit.

Having tried a lot of gluten-free crusts (our own, at restaurants, and box mixes), we can confidently say this is the best gluten-free pizza crust we’ve tried and SPOT-ON in flavor and texture. Swoon!

Once your crust is formed, bake for 10 minutes. Then top with desired toppings. We went for tomato sauce, peppers, onions, mushrooms, kalamata olives, oregano, and whipped almond ricotta cheese. But you could go any way you prefer. I could see pesto working well here, as well as my butternut squash sauce!

Just a few more minutes in the oven and it’s officially pizza night!
