Cheese and Herb Pizza Crust

Gluten-Free Cheese and Herb Pizza CrustPrep Time: 15 Min
Cook Time: 30 Min
Ready In: 45 Min

Servings: 8
Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup gluten-free all purpose baking flour
  • 1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

Directions:
1. Preheat an oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease a 15-inch pizza pan with cooking spray. Stir the all-purpose baking flour, garbanzo bean flour, cornstarch, tapioca starch, baking powder, xanthan gum, Italian seasoning, oregano, salt, and Parmesan cheese together in a bowl; set aside.
2. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of white sugar in the lukewarm water in a small bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over top, and set aside until foamy, 3 to 5 minutes. Beat the egg in a separate bowl with the olive oil, vinegar, 1 teaspoon sugar, and the garlic until smooth. Once the yeast is foamy, whisk it into the egg mixture, then stir in the flour until no dry lumps remain. Press the dough into the prepared pan, leaving the outer edge slightly thicker than the center.
3. To par bake: Cook in the preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes until the dough has risen and has slightly firmed.
4. Once topped with your favorite toppings, continue baking at 425°F (220°C) until the crust is golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the pizza from the pan, and cook directly on the oven rack for 5 minutes to crisp crust, if desired.
