Gluten Free Grilled Pizza Crust

Sharing is caring!

I saw another food blogger post about grilled pizza crust, and I immediately knew I needed to try it! I ran to the grocery store and bought a Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix so I could make it and put it on the grill. It was a complete flop! I was devastated! Fortunately, I had all of the ingredients I needed to make my Low Carb Pizza Crust so we could still have pizza that night. I wasn’t brave enough to try it on the grill though because I had a very hangry toddler waiting for his pizza!

But I was determined to try again! I used the same Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix, but I didn’t follow the directions on the package. Instead, I used it as a “flour” and added ingredients I knew would make the crust turn out right. Here’s what I used…

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix with yeast packet included OR 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour and 1 packet rapid rise yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (heat in microwave for 1 minute)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Olive or avocado oil spray

Directions:

Warm 1 cup water in microwave safe dish for 1 minute

Add 1 tablespoon honey to warm water and stir

Add yeast packet that came with the crust mix to the honey and water, stir, and cover with a clean dish towel for 5 minutes 

After 5 minutes, yeast should appear “foamy” 

In the bowl of your stand mixer, add 2 cups of the Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix (save the rest for dusting), 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, and foamy yeast mixture.

Turn mixer to low and mix until a dough has formed

Turn off mixer and form dough into a large ball

Transfer dough ball to greased glass mixing bowl and cover with a clean dish towel, place in a warm area (I put mine on top of my stove), and allow the dough to rise for at least 1 hour

Preheat your grill and spray grates with olive or avocado oil spray

Lay a piece of parchment paper (about 12×16 inches) on your counter and dust with some of the remaining pizza crust mix

Turn the dough ball out onto the floured parchment paper

Dust the dough ball with more flour and knead until it is no longer sticky and then roll out into a large rectangle (about 10×14 inches)

Brush the top of pizza crust with 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

To transfer the dough to the grill, use a pizza peel OR carefully flip the dough onto the grill using the parchment paper (It helps to have two people for this part)

Turn heat to low, close lid, and cook for about 3-5 minutes, until bottom of crust is golden brown

Remove crust from grill using pizza peel OR two spatulas placed on each side and carefully place on a cutting board

Flip crust over so browned side is on top and add your favorite toppings

Place back on grill using pizza peel OR two spatulas and cook on low heat with lid closed for another 3 minutes, until cheese has melted and bottom is golden brown 

Carefully remove pizza from grill and dig in!

My toddler asks for grilled pizza every day now! Some of our favorite toppings are “cheeseburger” using lean ground beef, onions, and cheddar cheese and BBQ chicken pizza with sautéed onions.

I have also made this crust several times using just 2 cups of gluten free all purpose flour and 1 packet rapid rise yeast and it turns out perfectly every time! When my best friends visited, I made this pizza for them, and they LOVED it! So does my picky bonus kid! So get out there and make this pizza!
