gluten-free thai chicken pizza

Do you love pizza?

Well, I do.

In fact, homemade pizza is a go-to, last minute, forgot to take meat out, oh my what to make for supper option.

I’ve posted a few recipes for gluten free pizza crust on my site:

I also have gluten free pizza crust recipe that I like to use from the cookbook Cooking for Isaiah by Silvana Nardone.

I think it is good to switch things up sometimes. That also happens if you realize you have run out of rice flour and/or eggs. I like to have a few good options available to me, so that I do not feel frustrated. With switching things up in mind, I wanted to try a new gluten free pizza recipe.

I knew that my hubby wouldn’t love this pizza, he likes a simple ham and pineapple pizza but really a pizza that uses regular pizza sauce is his preference.

There is nothing wrong with that, and most of the time I follow that guide.

While, sneaking in things like baby kale, proscuitto and buffalo mozzarella.

When my kids were teenagers we used to eat at Boston Pizza a lot, one of the boys favorites was a thai chicken pizza.

I thought I’d experiment with those flavors while of course, making it gluten free.

The crust I used for this pizza was my gluten free quinoa pizza crust but what I think is also important is sharing my how-to techniques I use to make a great gluten free crust.

A pizza stone for me is a must. It’s not about buying the most expensive one, it is just about using a pizza stone.

You also must preheat your pizza stone in the oven before adding the crust.

That to me is extremely important and then thus leads to a great pizza crust.

So here is what I do for pizza crust:

I preheat the pizza stone in a 425 degree oven while I am making the dough.

I cut a large piece of parchment paper the size of the pizza stone and roll the dough on the parchment.

Remove stone from the oven and place the parchment/dough on the stone.

Put the stone back in the oven and bake for 8 minutes.

Carefully remove the parchment from under the semi-cooked dough.

Bake for another 3-5 minutes, depending on size of your pizza.

Remove pizza dough from oven and quickly spread sauce plus toppings/cheese on pizza and bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.

Remove cooked pizza from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before slicing.

When I follow these techniques I find now that I have the best gluten free pizza crust.

Now that you have the techniques for making a great gluten free crust here is the recipe for the Gluten-Free Thai BBQ Chicken Pizza.
