Homemade Pizza Parlor – They'll Beg You To Make Another!

Gluten Free Rice Crust Pizza Recipe

Posted by Lock On January - 10 - 2014

Today I’ll be sharing a gluten free crust recipe that you can use for your favorite homemade pizza. The crust is made with rice flour. Before I share the pizza recipe I would like to tell you a little about gluten free ingredients and diet sources. You can find several products and resources that are considered gluten free in The HPC Pizza Supply Outlet.

There are several grains and starch sources that are considered acceptable for a what’s termed “gluten-free diets”. The most frequently used are maize, potatoes, rice, and tapioca (derived from cassava).

Other grains and starch sources generally considered suitable for gluten-free diets include but are not limited to amaranth, arrowroot, millet, montina, lupine, quinoa, sorghum (jowar), sweet potato, taro, teff, chia seed, and yam.

In some cases, various types of bean, soybean, and nut flours are used in gluten-free products to add protein and dietary fiber. In spite of its all to familiar name, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all. Buckwheat in it’s purest form, is considered acceptable for a gluten-free diet, although many commercial buckwheat products are actually mixtures of wheat and buckwheat flours. those that are restricted to toal gluten free diets must be cognizant of this. Typically it not accepted in these forms of diets. Gram flour, derived from chickpeas, is also gluten-free.

Hemp seed is a gluten free source of energy with digestible edestin protein. It’s a good balance of essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, as well as vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin E, Iron, Zinc, Copper and Magnesium.

Gluten is also used in foods in some unexpected ways, for example as a stabilizing agent or thickener in products like ice-cream and ketchup.

People wishing to follow a completely gluten free diet must also consideration the ingredients of any over-the-counter or prescription medications and vitamins as some of these products contain gluten derivatives.

I hope you enjoy the recipe…

    Looks like a very good recipe, but at the top of your blog, you state that you will be using rice flour, but the recipe calls for cooked white rice. Which is it?

    I made this for dinner tonight, with a few modifications. I used brown rice instead of white (we almost never eat white rice). I accidentally combined the onions with the rice, 1/4 cup mozz and egg (the instructions say “Mix the first four ingredients thoroughly” but it should be first THREE-rice, 1/4 c mozz and egg!). I also did not use minced garlic, just some potent granulated garlic. I used a 12-inch cast iron skillet since that is what I always cook pizza in anyway. I also only had mozzarella, so I used just that.

    Verdict: The taste was good but the “crust” fell apart and was soggy. I was afraid the bottom would burn but next time I will cook it longer. The edges were really crunchy and good! Also, I may use a food processor next time to blend the rice/egg/1/4 cup mozz/seasonings. I think the blended texture would be great! I might also experiment with a cookie sheet instead of cast iron.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Chef Roberts,

    Brown rice can be substituted for this recipe however you may need to adjust other ingredients to compensate for the “nutty” flavor that brown rice produces.

    Bolstering the pizza sauce with bolder spices will typically handle this. Brown rice actually contains more Vitamin B1 & B3. Brown rice will also contain about 4 times the magnesium as well.

    On the Gluten Free Rice Crust it calls for white rice, could brown rice used instead?

    lol one or two of the remarks people post are so silly, repeatedly i contemplate if they really read the publications and threads before writing or whether or not they pretty much read over the title of the article and jot down the first thought that comes to mind. at any rate, it is actually good to read through intelligent commentary once in a while compared to the same exact, classic post vomit which i quite often discover on the web i’m going to have fun with a few hands of facebook poker farewell
