This fancy gluten-free pizza recipe makes 2 small flatbreads (about 6×12 inches). Be sure to use Bosc pears; Bartlett pears produce a lot of juice that can make the crust soggy. If using gorgonzola cheese, check labels to make certain it’s gluten-free.

Pair our homemade Perfect Pizza Crust (Traditional or Flatbread) or our Cauliflower Crust with a wonderful assortment of toppings. Pizza night has never been tastier!

Gluten-Free Pizza Tips:

Baking pizza on a preheated pizza stone produces a superior texture and taste. For a makeshift stone, turn a large baking sheet upside down and place it on the lowest rack of the oven to preheat. Slide the flatbread and parchment onto preheated baking sheet and bake as instructed. Alternatively, bake the pizza in a round pan on the lowest rack of the oven. After baking, remove the pizza from the pan and slide it onto a wire rack to cool. Leaving the pizza in the pan produces a lot of steam that can make the crust soggy.

  • 1 Perfect Pizza Crust made into 2 (6x12-inch) Flatbreads
