Easy Wheat & Yeast-Free Pizza Dough!

The one food that India has been craving (and crying over!) while on this restricted diet is pizza.  No mean feat since we all know that the pizza dough requires yeast and wheat to make it so darned delicious!!  I did some research on a few celiac and vegan sites and combined a couple of recipes to create this dough.  Although not as ooey-gooey good as regular dough, it was delicious!  India almost cried!!!  The picture I have taken is my pizza as she is not allowed to have mushrooms and meats, but she had onions, garlic, my homemade tomato sauce and the goat cheddar shredded over top!

1 cup spelt flour
1 cup brown rice flour
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup water
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 cup EVOO
  • Mix all the ingredients together, but leaving approximately 1 tbsp of the olive oil.
  • Form into four small balls and flatten on a non-stick cookie sheet (or one spritzed with olive oil, like I did!), into thin discs.  Prick the dough all over with a fork and brush the remaining olive oil over the tops of each pizza base.
  • Place in the oven for 6 to 7 minutes at 425F.  Remove from oven and top with your favourite vegetables and meats and place back in oven until lightly browned and cheese is melted (approx. 10 mins)
  • Slip off of the pan and ENJOY!
