If you are looking for a vegan gluten-free pizza crust I got you! This one is the perfect combination of crispy on the outside, yet soft & tender on the inside! You can make it yours by adding your favourite sauce & toppings!



Vegan Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

  • 1 tsp active yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp gluten-free flour (this is my favourite)*
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted (or avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil for dairy-free/vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp pink salt

Pizza Sauce

  • 2 tbsp butter, melted (or avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil for dairy-free/vegan)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 23 basil leaves, chopped


  • Mozzarella (use a dairy-free cheese for vegan option)
  • Feta (use a dairy-free cheese for vegan option)
  • Peppers (red, yellow & orange), diced
  • Red onion, diced
  • Olives, diced (pitted)
  • Tomato, diced
  • Drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil over the crust


  1. In a large mixing bowl (ideally made for a stand mixer but you can also use your arm power if you don’t have one) add the active yeast with the warm water & mix gently, then set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. If you have a stand mixer, add the flour, oil or butter & pink salt to the mixing bowl, until a dough forms. You can also use a sturdy spoon & your hands to combine into a dough.**
  3. Set aside for 20 minutes, covered.
  4. Pre-heat your oven to 450 F.
  5. I like to use avocado oil or extra-virgin olive oil on my fingertips to easily spread the dough onto a parchment paper lined baking tray.
  6. Mix the ingredients for the pizza sauce together & drizzle evenly over the crust.
  7. Cover with your toppings of choice (the ones I used are listed above).
  8. Bake the pizza for around 20-25 minutes until the toppings & cheese has browned & the crust is golden.
  9. Remove from the oven, let cool slightly, slice & enjoy!


*When measuring your flour out I recommend scooping or pouring it into your measuring spoon or cup. If you dig it out from the bag this can actually alter the amount & add more flour to the cup than required. 

**If your dough is too sticky slowly add 1 tbsp of flour at a time, mixing after each addition until a dough forms. You want it to be moist, not wet/sticky but also not too dry & clumpy. If it is too dry add 1 tbsp of oil or melted butter until the desired consistency is achieved.
