Crucial Pizza Crust

    When delivery doesn't cut it, make yer own.

    GF. V. SF. NF.



    1 tbsp sugar or maple syrup

    1 cup warm water (105°F - 110°F)

    1 tbsp active dry yeast

    2 cups GF AP flour (I use Pamela's Artisan Blend)

    2 tbsp olive oil

    1 tsp salt

    (double if you're having a party!)

    Sauce & Topping Combo Ideas:

    Tomato sauce / fresh veggies / vegan mozz / Italian seasoning

    Olive oil & fresh herbs / fresh tomato / vegan mozz & parm / fresh oregano / microgreens

    BBQ sauce / criminis / shredded carrots / corn / vegan mozz / fresh cilantro

    Alfredo sauce (recipe here) / spinach / vegan parm / pine nuts / fresh basil

    Tahini sauce (recipe here) / red onion / sun dried tomatoes / vegan mozz / radicchio leaves

    Hoisin sauce (recipe here) / shiitakes / shredded carrots / mung bean sprouts / scallion

    Pro tip: Miyoko's Creamery Fresh VeganMozz is incredible and worth every penny.


    Combine sugar, warm water, and yeast in a glass and let sit until foamy (about 5 mins) - if your mixture doesn't get foamy, your water is too hot or too cold. Or your yeast is old and dead. Try again!

    In the bowl of a stand mixer, add flour, oil, and salt

    Dump in the yeast mixture and mix using the hook attachment (or use your hands if you don't have a mixer) just until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl

    If your dough is too dry - add more warm water, if it's too wet - add more flour

    Place ya dough ball in an oiled bowl, cover, and rest for 30 minutes

    Using a stone? Preheat grill with stone on the grate to high (450°F - 500°F)

    Using a pan? Preheat oven to 450°F

    Rip off a piece of parchment a little bit bigger than your pizza, lightly oil and sprinkle with cornmeal

    Roll out dough using a flour dusted roller or press using your hands into your desired pizza shape (1/2" thick makes the perfect pie)

    Decorate with sauce / toppings / cheese

    Grill or bake on your stone or in a pan checking every 10 minutes for desired crispiness


    Vicious Variations:

    Bake this crust in a high sided square cake pan for the BEST Detroit style pizza on the planet. Sorry Jet's and Rocky's - got ya beat here. This recipe makes 2, 8" Detroit style pies.

    Sound Mate:

    KISS - Asylum

    Any way you slice it, you know you can't deny it.

    This is my single favorite record of all time. Cheese is my favorite genre.
