Gluten-free pizza dough

This dough is great for a coeliac’s pizza, calzone or flatbreads – just follow the instructions below and use with any of our recipes. They turn out a treat!

Recipe source: Melissa
Makes: 2 large pizza or 2 calzone


  • Scales
  • Stand mixer, bowl & dough hook
  • Measures – cup, ½ cup, tablespoon
  • Bowls – large, medium
  • Cling film

For the magic dough:

  • 2½ cups gluten-free plain flour
  • 7g dried instant yeast (GF)
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil plus extra for greasing

What to do:

  • Sift flour into the bowl of the stand mixer. Add the yeast and salt and mix to combine.
  • Make a well in the centre and add measured water and oil. Mix to form a soft dough and knead for about 5-7 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
  • Place in a lightly greased bowl and cover with cling film. Stand in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Using your fist, punch dough the down. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and then use with your favourite pizza or flatbread recipe.

Notes: Why do we leave the dough to rise? What is this process called?
