  • 13 " gluten free dairy free pizza crusts or make one using the ingredients below:
  • 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup amaranth flour
  • 1 cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum or guar gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar cane juice crystals, agave, honey, maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 egg whites or flax seed replacement of 1 T ground golden flax mixed with 3 T of hot water mixed together
  • Topping:
  • 3/4 cup black beans cooked or canned, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder gluten free
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cheese substitute gluten and dairy free of choice, optional
  • 1 medium plum tomato seeds removed and diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh spinach chopped
  • 3 medium scallions green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup roasted red peppers chopped
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped pickled hot peppers optional


  • Oil a 13-inch pizza pan (one per batch) or baking sheet(s), using olive oil. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flours, xanthan gum, salt, yeast, and sugar. In a measuring cup, combine the water and olive oil. Add olive oil-water mixture to dry ingredients, then egg whites, mixing well after each addition. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.
  • Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil over your hand and the dough. I usually pat the dough back and forth in oiled hands until rounded first.
  • Pat the dough out evenly over the pizza pan, forming a ridge around the edge to contain the pizza toppings.
  • Topping: Place beans, peppers, garlic, chili powder and salt in a food processor and process until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Spread the bean mixture on the crust, leaving a border around the edge. Top with tomato, scallions, red peppers, olives, pickled hot peppers and gluten and dairy free cheese substitute.
  • Let dough rise for about 15 minutes. Bake pizza in a preheated 400 degrees F oven until crusts are golden and cooked through.
