Gluten Free Focacia / PIzza Crust


  • 1 cup + 2 tbsp warm water (110 degrees F)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 Tbsp Flax 
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar


  • 1 cup gf flour white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup starch tapioca starch/flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum 
  • 3 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning — any old herbs you feel like flavoring with we did, rosemary, thime, oregano, garlic
  • 1 tsp kosher salt — we used Sea Salt

Method  Prep Time: 10 minutes or so, Time to rise 30 minutes, Time to Bake 30 minutes Total Time 1:10 minutes

  1. Warm water on stove top
  2. Add Honey, olive oil and vinegar
  3. Add Flax
  4. Let sit briefly and then add to mixer bowl
  5. Beat together (with the attachment you would use for making a cake – not the whisk or the dough hook) while you assemble the dry ingredients.
  6. In a smallish bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (from yeast through the 1 tsp kosher salt). Add to the wet ingredients in the mixer. Beat for about 2 minutes. The dough will look like brownie batter, not like traditional bread dough.
  7. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides. Lightly oil pizza pan.
  8. Oil your fingers, then spread the dough into the pans, stretching a bit and making fingertip indentations.
  9. Let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. While it is rising, preheat the oven to 400°F.
  10. Sprinkle the risen dough with a little olive oil, a few pinches of kosher salt, and the rosemary. You can really substitute any other herb for the rosemary, or leave it with just the kosher salt.
  11. Bake for 30 minutes, until it turns golden brown.

Cut and serve. This is delicious served with any meal, as a snack by itself, or with a savory spread on top
