Posted by request, this is a gluten free pizza crust made with spelt and chickpea flours, available in health food stores. You can add garlic, oregano, basil or parmesan cheese to dry ingredients, to make a flavored crust, and top with your favorite pizza toppings. Prep time includes rising time. Although spelt flour does have gluten in it, it is used in many gluten free recipes since people with wheat allergies can usually tolerate spelt flour.

  2. Dissolve yeast in warm water.
  3. Pour liquid into dry ingredients in Kitchenaid mixer and add olive oil.
  4. Mix until dough forms, knead in mixer 5 minutes.

  9. Form dough into 2 12 inch pizzas and place on stone or greased pizza pans.
