Low-FODMAP Pizza Crust and Low-FODMAP Pizza Recipe; Gluten-free

Although this recipe has not been tested a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Prep time: 15 mins

Cook time: 50 mins

Total time: 1 hour 5 mins

Bake 350 F

Serves: 8

Ingredients for Low-FODMAP Pizza Crust (can make 1 large, or 2 medium size)

  • 3 cups gluten-free flour (I used Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp (37 g) sugar, divided as 1 TB and 2 TB
  • 1 Tbsp (10 g) yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup (300 ml) warm water, divided to ¾ cup and ½ cup
  • 1 Tbsp (15 ml) olive oil

Ingredients for Low-FODMAP Pizza building

  • Olive oil for drizzling (can use infused if desired)
  • Up to 3 cups (180 g) mozzarella or other cheese (1/2 cup (60g) is 1 FODMAP serving)
  • 15 ounces low-FODMAP pizza sauce
  • Your favorite low-FODMAP meat or veggies (I use fresh basil, green peppers, sliced chicken breast, ground beef, ham, etc)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • In a small bowl, combine yeast and 3/4 cup warm water – about 110 degrees F (43 C)
  • Let set for 5 minutes to activate
  • Add 1 Tbsp (12 g) of the sugar
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder and remaining 2 Tbsp sugar. Stir together
  • Make a well in the dry mixture and add the yeast mixture. Add the olive oil and additional 1/2 cup warm water
  • Stir until well combined, using a wooden spoon and your hands

  • Lightly coat a baking sheet or pizza stone with non-stick spray and plop your dough down. Using your hands and a little brown rice flour if it gets too sticky, work from the middle and push to spread/flatten the dough out to the edge
  • You want it to be pretty thin – less than 1/4 inch (my pan is 14 by 15 inches, fit nicely)
  • Put the pizza in the oven to pre-bake for roughly 25-30 minutes, or until it begins to look dry. (Cracks are normal)
  • Remove from oven and brush olive oil over entire crust
  • Spread generously with low-FODMAP pizza sauce

  • Then layer with cheese and other desired toppings

  • Bake another 20-25 minutes, or until the crust edge looks golden brown and the toppings are crispy
  • Let stand about 5 minutes, then cut and serve!
