Yeast Free Pizza Crust

Yeast Free Pizza Crust

The last time I made a gluten free yeast free pizza crust was when my eldest daughter was first diagnosed with food allergies.   At the time I was completely overwhelmed with trying to figure out how to prepare meals without wheat, corn, and soy.  I remember staying up pretty late one night to make a gluten free yeast free pizza crust so that she could have pizza for a party at school the next day.  I was determined to make the best yeast free pizza crust so that she would not feel left out when the rest of the class was enjoying pizza.  Looking back I don’t really understand why I didn’t just use yeast since Chey does not have any issues with yeast.  I guess I wanted to enjoy the pizza too.  My first attempt at making yeast free pizza was not so great.  I was able to make a yeast free pizza crust using a gluten free flour mix that I purchased and a yeast free pizza crust recipe that I found on the web.  While I was able to create something that resembled a pizza crust the taste was just off.  It didn’t exactly taste bad but there was a strong flavor which took away from my being able to enjoy the pizza.  The gluten free flour mix that I purchased contained garbanzo bean flour and all that I could taste as I ate the pizza was chickpeas.  I did not expect gluten free yeast free pizza to taste like regular pizza but I didn’t expect it to taste like beans either.  I can also remember my first yeast free pizza dough being such a pain to roll out.  I don’t know why the pizza crust was so sticky the first time I made it but the dough was really more like batter.  The crust also never really got crisp and tasted really doughy.  My daughter did eat my first yeast free pizza but I could tell she did not really like it because she never requested it again.

The mediocre results of my first yeast free pizza crust are the reason why it has been over 3 years since I have made a yeast free pizza.  I figured it was time to try again.  This time I was armed with a yeast free flour mix that had been successful in many of my other yeast free recipes.  I also purchased a cool new pizza pan that actually has holes at the bottom which helps the crust get crispy while cooking.  While there were limited yeast free pizza dough recipes available when I made this 3 years ago, there were several recipes I found this time around that could work.  I decided to go with a simple recipe that had received a lot of positive feedback and began substituting the necessary ingredients for the candida diet.

I am glad that I did not give up on yeast free pizza.  The results were solid and everyone in my family liked it.  This is not your typical pizza crust.  This is not an exact substitution but it is tasty and will give you the feel of eating pizza again.  Be sure to roll out the dough slowly, as it does not stay together as well as regular dough.   You can top the pizza with any candida diet friendly ingredients.

This was actually my youngest daughter’s first time eating pizza.  She is allergic to dairy and wheat so pizza was never an option for her.  Now that I have successfully made a yeast free wheat free pizza crust, I will be able to create pizza with dairy free toppings just for her.  This yeast free pizza crust will be the foundation for all of our yeast free pizza creations.

    Hi Ann,

    Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comment. Yes you can use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Mix. I didn’t like the chickpea flour in it but that is the only reason I make my own gluten free flour mix.

    Thanks for hosting and letting me be a part of the Food on Fridays blog hop. I am sorry I did not have the courage to leave a comment. Blog hopping is very new to me and I am not sure what to say when I comment yet. I look forward to exploring your site further.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Best,

  • I can relate to the try and try again when it comes to gf recipes, some are really lacking when you are comparing to non-gf foods. Looks like you found a good one though. Thanks for sharing on Hearth & Soul Hop. :)
