Delicious homemade gluten and grain free pizza base!



1 cup cassava flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
5 tbsp arrowroot flour
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1/4 cup olive oil
Yeast mix:
1/2 cup warm water (approx 105-110F)
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
1 tbsp honey


  1. Start by preparing the yeast mixture.  In a small bowl, add warm water, yeast and honey.  Mix to dissolve. Set aside for 10 minutes or until it gets foamy ontop.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl to combine.
  3. Lightly whisk eggs and olive oil together in a separate bowl.
  4. Add egg mixture and activated yeast to the dry ingredients.
  5. Mix well until a dough ball forms.  Transfer ball to an oiled bowl, cover with paper towel and set aside in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. It will not double in size like a typical gluten pizza, but it will rise a little.
  6. Once dough has risen, preheat oven to 200C/400F. Place the dough onto a baking sheet or pizza stone  and shape dough with your hands by pushing down from the center towards the outer edge (you could alternatively try to use a rolling pin). Flatten your pizza about 1/8-1/4 inch thin. Roll the crust thick or thin (to your liking) by shaping with your fingers and rolling the edges. Use extra cassava or coconut flour if dough is sticking.  
  7. Place your toppings on the dough, we used a homemade napolitana sauce, mozzarella, a drizzle of olive oil and fresh basil. Bake in the oven for 12-15  minutes (depending on your oven) until dough is slightly golden and crisp.
  8. Slice your pizza and enjoy!
