Gluten and Dairy Free Pizza

There are plenty of recipes out there for gluten free pizza, but this recipe is both gluten and dairy free pizza. This recipe is great because you can either make your own cheese or you can buy a vegan brand like Daiya – I swear it tastes just like cheese.

This is a recipe for two 8-12″ pizzas or one large 14″ pizza, so maybe make one for the adults and let the kids choose their toppings and throw them on!


Gluten and Dairy Free Pizza



Ingredients – For the crust

  • 1 (.25 oz) package active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 cup Amaranth flour
  • 1 1/4 cups brown rice flour
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water until white and creamy. In a large bowl combine flours, flaxseed, salt, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Make a well in the middle and add yeast mixture, agave nectar, and apple cider vinegar. Stir well to combine. Cover and set aside while you prepare the sauce and cheese.

Ingredients – For the sauce

  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Set aside.


For the “cheese”


  • 1 1/2 c. water or plain nondairy milk (I used rice milk)
  • 1/4 c. nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/4 cup flour (any kind, I used brown rice flour)
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame tahini
  • 2 Tablespoons kuzu, arrowroot, or cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder (I used real onions since I was cooking them anyway, about 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (I used real garlic, about 1 clove)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


FYI, this will come out as a liquid, so don’t be alarmed.

Put all the ingredients in a blender and process until completely smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring almost constantly with a whisk until thick and smooth.

Ingredients – Toppings

Anything you want! Except pineapple… Okay, you can put pineapple on your pizza, just don’t tell me. This recipe is a gluten and dairy free pizza but it also doesn’t mean it needs to be a vegan or vegetarian pizza.

Pizza Prep

Make sure your cheese is just about made, but not heated before rolling and pre-baking the dough. The dough should pre-bake for about a minute to a minute and a half.  Then heat your cheese until it thickens. You can then assemble the pizzas – pour on the sauce and cheese, toppings. Slide the assembled pizza back onto the heated skillet and bake for an additional 3-4 minutes until the cheese just starts to brown. Remove from the oven and let cool while you cook the second pizza. Let cool, slice, and serve.
