Today I’m sharing the Top 30 Gluten-Free Pizza Crust recipes! This past week was National Pizza Week. Of course pizza lovers might say that pizza week is EVERY week, so a gluten-free pizza party is timely any time, right?
I think that most of you will agree that “really good gluten-free pizza,” like really good gluten-free bread, is one of those foods that we all want. However, finding a recipe that works for us and our families is often difficult at best.
So I decided that I would gather the best gluten-free pizza crust recipes that I could find from all my blogger friends into a single post for you, and here it is! A gluten-free pizza party!
And this is only Part 1! Part 2 is coming. (Update: Part 2, Over 30 of Best Alternatives to Traditional Pizza Crusts and Other Tasty Ideas to Satisfy Your Pizza Cravings, is now up!)

Top 30 Best Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Recipes
~ Best Gluten-Free Pizza Crust from Simply Quinoa ~ gluten free, egg free
Reader review: “I’ve been searching for a good GF pizza dough to make for my friend’s wife. My search is over.
This isn’t just good it is fantastic. Thanks very much.”
Reader review: “This was absolutely DELISH!! My family loved it!!”
~ Brazilian Cheese Pizza Crust from Gluten-Free Gobsmacked ~ gluten free grain free, vegetarian, primal, yeast free
The original recipe that Kate shared is for Brazilian Cheese Rolls, but her directions for the pizza crust variation are at the bottom of her post.
I’m going to personally vouch for this recipe. I’ve made it many times as pizza crust and it’s really wonderful! I mean it has a chewy, cheesy crust; what could be better?
While Kate uses less cheese when she’s using her recipe for pizza crust, I actually use the exact same recipe as she does for her Brazilian Cheese Rolls—so same amount of cheese–just patting the dough out into a 12-inch pizza crust. The photo above is one I took when I made Kate’s recipe.
~ Chewy Pizza Crust from Faithfully Gluten Free ~ gluten free, vegetarian, with dairy-free option (Jeanine is the author of the award-winning resource book/cookbook, The Everything Guide to Living Gluten Free.)
Reader review: “Wow! I made this today for my annual pizza and start of the NASCAR season tradition and it did not let me down. It was a great crust that definitely gave me the chewiness of my old deep dish favorite.
What was so beautiful about this crust is that it didn’t have any problems with sogginess, floppiness, or falling apart like so many gluten free pizza crusts I’ve tried usually do, especially with as much tomato sauce as I like! This one is truly a keeper!
Thank you sooo much for bringing back thick crust pizza for me!”
~ Crisp Gluten-Free Pizza Crust from Faithfully Gluten Free ~ gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian
Reader reviews: “We tried this recipe last week and I fell IN LOVE! My husband and boys loved it too!
I like it so much I made it again a few days ago, just as cheesy bread to have with GF Spaghetti. And….then tonight I used it to make pitas for chicken gyro’s. I just spread it in little 4″ circles instead of the large one. It worked beautifully!
I may never eat another G-Free bread again. Thank you for sharing!!”
“All of my family loved it, and my pickiest eater told me it was the best pizza I have ever made! That is saying a lot since I was an avid pizza maker before eliminating gluten from our diets.”
~ Foolproof Gluten-Free Pizza Crust from Allergy Free Alaska ~ gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, vegetarian

Lynn says: “Our weekly pizza night is back thanks to this pizza crust.”
~ Gluten-Free Pizza Worth Having Every Night on Gluten Free Easily ~ gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegetarian, with vegan option

~ Low-Carb (and Keto) Flourless Pizza from Gluten Free Easily ~ gluten free, vegetarian, yeast free
This recipe surprises many people … in the best possible way.
Reader reviews: “I made this the other night and it was absolutely amazing. I even cut the recipe in half and made a personal pizza for lunch.”
Another shared: “We actually flipped the crust after one side baked and baked the other side. Then I was able to immediately build my pizza. It was perfect!!!!!”
Finally, this comment made me smile: “I raved about this on Facebook and dared people to make it! If you love cheese, this is an amazing crust to have. It’s like wrapping up in your favorite blanket, with your comfy slippers and makes me all warm and gooey inside!”

Debbie said: “I was delighted when my youngest son announced, after eating one of the commercial test-market gluten-free pizzas, that he liked my crust better than theirs.”
Reader review: “It tasted wonderful with the pepita sauce, mushrooms, a few black olives and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast. Although we used to eat a whole pizza between us, it was so filling that we packaged half of it up for lunch the next day. My husband made sure I couldn’t snaffle his share for my evening shift lunch, and said it was absolutely delicious.”
~ Grain-Free Pizza Margherita from Primal Palate ~ gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free (This recipe is shared over at Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations in George’s review of Primal Palate’s latest cookbook Gather: The Art of Paleo Entertaining.)
Reader reviews: “Been Paleo for over a year now and I MISS PIZZA! I absolutely loved this pizza! Thank you. You have changed my life. Kids, ages 2 and 4, gobbled it right up.”
“I’ve made this crust several times now and I use different toppings for variety. It is so yummy.”
~ Grain-Free Mini Pizzas (with Faces) from Jeanette’s Healthy Living ~ gluten free, grain free, egg free, with dairy-free, vegetarian, and vegan options

(Karina is the author of Gluten-Free Goddess: Best-Loved Recipes for iPad.)
Karina says: “Millet flour gives this chewy Italian flatbread a delicate nutty flavor. I also add plenty of minced onion, garlic and dried herbs to the dough to kick it up.”
Reader review: “I think this is the best gf pizza crust I have had, and I have made/ bought so many! Everyone I have made or bought is either dense and doughy, or it has a crackery element, but this was just like gluten pizza crust with the chewy exterior and fluffy interior. Thanks SO much!”
~ Homemade and Hearty Gluten-Free Pizza Crust from The Healthy Apple ~ gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, vegetarian
Amie said this “gluten-free, dairy-free veggie pizza that had [her] taste buds dancin’ for more…it was fabulous.” (See Amie’s guidebook/cookbook here.)
I substituted almond flour for cornmeal and I’m happy to report that this 6-inch individual pizza, which is made in the microwave, is an easy-to-make, thin crust pizza that’s delicious! When using cornmeal, be sure to use gluten-free cornmeal. Cornmeal that is not certified gluten free is highly contaminated by gluten grains.
~ Karina’s Best Gluten-Free Pizza Crust from Gluten-Free Goddess ~ gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian with egg-free, vegan option

and my own personal review: “Lea’s pizza crust is one of my go-to pizza crust recipes. It’s quick, easy, and delicious. We love this grain-free thin crust!”
Kristina says “I like a crispy pizza crust, and I like it to be flavorful. This recipe is both.” She adds, “The dough comes together quickly, rises and bakes a bit, then is topped and back in the oven to finish cooking … and then it disappears just as quickly.” And she shares a video to prove all that!
Reader review: “I made this, and it was a total success!”
