Gluten-free pizza base recipe
  • 1
    Grease 2 oven trays and line with baking paper.
  • 2
    Sift the gluten-free flour, baking soda, salt and sugar into a large bowl. Pour in the egg, olive oil and water, then mix to combine.
  • 3
    Divide the dough into four portions and roughly knead each into a ball.
  • 4
    Working with each portion of dough, use floured hands to press and flatten, then roll out to your desired shape and thickness – I aim for an oblong shape. Transfer to a lined tray, ready for toppings. Makes 3-4 medium bases.
