Best GF Pizza Recipe

by Meg on April 16, 2011

Dave has now started to call my friends and I – ‘The Ladies Who Lunch”  – since he thinks I’m always flittering away to go out to lunch with my friends during the week.  He might be right -but soon I’ll be in the hospital 40 hours a week, so I must bond with my ladies now! Winking smile

My friend, Nyssa and I have been meeting for lunch/walk dates for the past couple weeks- it’s so wonderful to be together once a week and catch it other up! It reminds me of our days in college…you see this delightful ‘lady’ and I were freshmen college roommates… oh the memories Winking smile

We decided to go to Sugar & Spice for lunch after we took Luna for a Beacon St/Oxford St loop(about 2 miles)! For $12- we had a huge bowl tofu noodle soup and a tofu massaman curry with brown rice! It was perfect meal on a windy cold day!


Then, in the afternoon I took Luna for another walk. I just couldn’t get enough of that blue blue sky!

For dinner I made oat & flax flatbread tuna melts for dinner with Trader Joe’s tomato soup! It was good, but I still hadn’t perfected the crust. Argh! After dinner, Dave and I snuggled on the couch and watched Bedtime Stories, the movie! It was really cute!


This morning I took my car to the dealership to get new brakes. After,  we made a quick stop in Brookline at our friend’s Liz & Matts to pick up a rug, and then to Cambridge to our NEW house! Yep- that’s right we’re moving in July/August to the other side of Harvard Square. We are very excited!

For lunch I made Dave and I the perfect Oat & Flax Pizza. I think I have finally perfected the recipe.

  • 1 cup of gf oats( processed until fine in a food processor)
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tbsp. of chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp.  & 1 tsp. of flax meal
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp. of agave nectar
  • 1 1/4 tsp. of yeast
  • 2/3 cup of warm water

In a large bowl add the processed oats, chickpea flour, flax meal, agave nectar, yeast and egg white. Add the warm water and stir until all ingredients are mixed together. Preheat the oven to 425F, and place the bowl with the pizza dough on the stove covered in a towel(note: this is a warm place to help the dough to rise) for 25-40 minutes. During that time, get your ingredients ready for your pizza. When the dough has risen and the oven is ready- place a piece of parchment on a baking sheet and spread the dough out using either a rubber spoon or another piece of parchment & a rolling pin. Bake the dough in the oven for 5 minutes then add your toppings. Bake for another 8-10 minutes or until the dough is crispy and slightly brown on the bottom.

Today’s pizza: olive oil, garlic, parmesan, sun dried tomatoes, and chicken.


I think this is the best gluten free pizza I think I’ve EVER had & I’ve tried a LOT of them!
