Ingredients For Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza

  • All-purpose gluten-free flour: I used Namaste gluten-free flour, a versatile blend that creates a light, chewy pizza dough with crispy edges, resembling traditional pizza crust. It’s perfect for this recipe because it holds together well and bakes beautifully.
  • Ground flaxseeds: These act as a binder and provide a nutritional boost, thanks to their omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. When mixed with water, flaxseeds form a gel-like consistency that mimics the binding properties of eggs.
  • Water: Essential for bringing the dough together and activating the ground flaxseeds, which hold everything in place. Adjust the amount as needed to achieve the right consistency.
  • Olive oil: Adds moisture and richness to the dough, contributing to its tender yet chewy texture. Olive oil also lends a subtle flavor that complements the Italian seasoning.
  • Baking powder: This leavening agent provides the rise needed for a light and airy crust. It ensures that the pizza dough isn’t dense and heavy.
  • Italian seasoning: A delightful mix of dried herbs, usually including oregano, basil, thyme, and rosemary. It adds depth of flavor and a fragrance that enhances the overall taste of the pizza dough.
  • Salt: A little salt brings out the natural flavors of the ingredients and balances the overall taste of the crust.

How to Make Gluten-Free Vegan Pizza Dough

Making this pizza dough is easy; there’s no need to proof yeast or wait for the dough to rise. You can have pizza on your dinner table in less than an hour.

  1. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix the gluten-free all-purpose flour, ground flaxseeds, baking powder, Italian seasoning, and salt.
  2. Mix in Wet Ingredients: Add water and olive oil, stirring to form a dough ball. If the dough is too dry, add more water a tablespoon at a time. If it’s too wet, add a little more flour.
  3. Shape the Dough: Brush a piece of parchment paper with oil and place it on a rimless baking sheet (or invert a regular baking sheet). Flatten the dough with your hands, or cover it with another greased baking sheet and use a rolling pin to roll it into a 10-inch circle. Shape the edges to create a rim.
  4. Pre-Bake the Crust: Preheat your oven to 400°F. Bake the pizza dough for 15 minutes or until the crust is slightly browned.
  5. Add Toppings and Bake: Add your favorite pizza sauce and vegan cheese and toppings, then bake for another 15 minutes.
