Gluten-Free Flatbread Recipe

gluten-free-flatbred-recipe.jpg

Serving size: 2-3 crusts

Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten free flour
  • 3/4 cup hi-maize fiber*
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water, enough to make a smooth, soft dough

    *Hi-maize gives the crust an extra crisp bottom; if you don’t have it, use a total of 3 3/4 cups gluten free flour.

Toppings

Tomato Sauce, pesto, cooked Meats, vegetables, and cheeses of your choice

Instructions

  • Dough: Mix and knead together all of the dough ingredients, by hand, mixer or bread machine, till you’ve created a smooth, soft dough.
  • Allow the dough to rise, covered, for 1 hour; then shape and bake as directed below. Or refrigerate dough for up to 2 days; this step will develop the crust’s flavor.
  • Divide the dough in half (or in thirds, for cracker-thin crust).
  • Shape each piece into a 10″ to 14″ circle or rectangle (thicker or thinner crust), and place each on a piece of parchment paper or greased pan.
  • Allow to rise for 30 minutes or so, covered, while preheating the oven to 475°F.
  • Top pizza any way you choose. Bake for 12 minutes, till brown and crisp. For the crispiest pizza, bake the crust for 8 minutes, until set, before topping with sauce and cheese; then bake for an additional 4 minutes.
