Craving pizza but can't have gluten? You're in the right place! Sure, the already-made gluten-free pizza options in the store and restaurants are pretty impressive, but there's something about making homemade pizza that really hits the spot. When it comes to gluten-free pizza, you might automatically think of the healthier options out there (i.e. made with veggies such as cauliflower or spaghetti squash rather than wheat flour). Those are great and we have plenty of those recipes to share, but you can also enjoy a yeasted gluten-free pizza dough that rivals the real thing. With one of these amazing gluten-free pizza crust recipes made from the pros in our Test Kitchen, you'll never have to worry about trying to find the best takeout spot for allergy-friendly pies again.

Homemade Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

There are a lot of flour substitutes on the market today, but if you're new to the gluten-free scene, do yourself a favor and make this easy homemade gluten-free flour mix. By using a gluten-free flour mix, you'll have the best chance of replicating the same texture and consistency in recipes calling for all-purpose flour. Our gluten-free pizza crust is made just like its wheat-filled counterparts (yeast included!), which makes it the perfect vehicle for topping with your favorite ingredients. To achieve a restaurant-caliber taste and signature crispy texture, we recommend baking gluten-free pizza on a pizza stone ($11, Target).
