Best gluten-free pizza crust which is crispy, fluffy and not only great for all kind of pizzas but also for flat-bread and Calzone. The gluten-free dough is also vegan (dairy-free, egg-free), gum-free, and easy to make. Top it with your favorite veggies and vegan cheese of choice!
Heat the plant-based milk in a saucepan for a few seconds until it's lukewarm (not hot!) about 35-40 degrees C (95-104 degrees F). Add all other ingredients for the yeast mixture and set aside for about 5-10 minutes to proof the yeast. If it starts to get frothy, then the yeast is still active and usable.
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir with a whisk.
Add the yeast mixture and stir with a wooden spoon. The dough might seem too wet in the first few seconds but that will change within a minute.
Knead the dough with your hands for a few minutes and then form a dough ball. Cover the bowl with a clean damp kitchen towel and set aside (preferably in a warm place) for about 30-60 minutes. Here is how the dough looked before:
Here is how the dough looked after rising:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C (390 degrees F).Place the dough onto a lined/greased baking tray and use your fingers to spread the dough into your preferred shape. Let it rest again for about 10 minutes, and prepare the toppings meanwhile.
Mix the tomato sauce with the tomato paste, salt + pepper, dried oregano, and onion + garlic powder (optional). Put the sauce onto the dough and use the back of a spoon to spread it evenly (leave out 1 inch from the edges). Drizzle olive oil on top (optional).
Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. Add dollops of my easy vegan cheese sauce on the pizza and put it back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes (or until crispy).
Cut the pizza into 6-8 pieces, add fresh basil and enjoy!
For the cheese, I used my easy vegan cheese sauce recipe without the nutritional yeast flakes, because my brand turns the sauce yellowish. And I added 1 1/2 tsp of psyllium husk powder which adds great texture (similar to mozzarella).

Nutrition facts are for one piece of pizza (without the toppings) when you cut the pizza into 6 large pieces.
