The Elusive Thin and Crispy Pizza Crust

I hate it when I go to pizza places and get the "gluten free crust" only to find it's prepackaged and cardboard-like. I feel like the least they could do is use a mix or come up with their own concoction--then they charge us more for our "freak food." Whatever.

I just had a friend ask me for a thin and crispy pizza crust recipe. Sadly, this has been the hardest thing for me to replicate and as you may have read, I'm not a lover of using five different flours in one recipe just so I can eat.

This is the closest I've come to a crispy crust...and I think it's yum.

Follow the recipe for pizza crust on the GF Bisquick box:
1-1/3 GF Bisquick baking mix
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning (optional)
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs, beaten

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients together and roll or spread out to about 1/4 inch thickness as uniformly as you can. You may need to use two pizza pans as this recipe makes quite a bit of dough and rolling it so thin covers more surface area. FYI: I always cover the pan with parchment paper cause this dough sticks like crazy otherwise.
3. Bake until deep golden brown--you'll have to watch these since they're so thin--they can burn easily.
4. Remove from oven and cover with your choice of toppings.
5. Bake again until cheese is melted and bubbly.


  1. Hi Rachie! I'm Kristen G's friend who was asking about pizza crust. I'm so glad you're doing this blog - I don't have the time or (especially the) inclination to mess around trying hit or miss recipes and products. It's great to have a source for good recipes and even for products!

  2. Thank you! I'm glad you're reading...thanks to Kristen for leading you here. : ) I hope you find some good tips--that is my goal. It was so hard for me when I started eating GF. I want to make it easier for people. My daughter is Gf too, so I'm very much aware of how hard it is to find things kids will eat. I think I'm going to do a blog of snacks next. We love our snacks!

  3. Had to laugh at your "freak food" comment, Rachel!! Hilarious :) And you wonder where Amelia gets it!

    I had a leftover turkey burger for lunch today...YUM!!
