Crazy crust pizza has always been my favourite gluten-free pizza dough recipe when I am short on time. The dough has the consistency of pancake batter, making it one of the easiest pizza dough recipes.

No rolling or stretching out the dough, just pouring it into the baking pan and topping it with just about anything you love on your pizza.

In our home, whenever the pizza craving kicks in, and I have very little time, I always make the gluten-free crazy crust pizza.

This is not a thin crust pizza, but if you prefer the pizza crust to be thinner, use a slightly bigger rimmed pan. You can even use a 14-inch rimmed pizza pan. I feel the crust is better when it is slightly thicker because it holds the toppings perfectly.

How is crazy crust pizza different?

First, the crust is made with liquid batter and not the typical pizza dough. Most of the toppings are baked in the batter, and then the pizza is finished with tomato sauce and cheese and baked a little longer until the cheese is bubbling.

The sauce adds flavour to the meat. For the cheese….well, you can’t have a pizza without gooey cheese.

our toppings,

I wanted this gluten-free crazy crust pizza to be hearty and satisfying. So I used ground beef and pepperoni for the meat. I have also added onions, bell peppers and mushrooms for freshness.

I could have used gluten-free pizza sauce, but instead, I mixed tomato sauce with mustard and basil. The sauce added exceptional flavour to this most delicious crazy crust pizza.

other pizza toppings,

There are plenty of topping choices when making a crazy crust pizza. If you are looking to make a vegetarian pizza, briefly saute vegetables such as onions, zucchini, peppers, asparagus, artichokes, spinach, mushrooms or whatever you like before adding them to the batter. For meaty pizzas, you can use chicken, ham, bacon…the list is endless.

When it comes to crazy crust pizza, the sauce and the cheese must be added at the very end. This will give you a soft pizza crust without being soggy with a crispy bottom. Perfection, if you ask me 🙂

Whenever you crave a pizza and don’t want to mess around too much with preparation, you should try the crazy crust pizza. I promise you will not be disappointed. This gluten-free pizza may even become your new favourite!

      I have this on this week’s menu rotation! So excited to try it. What does the flaxseed do for the batter? I added some to my grocery pickup but it was out of stock Will it still work if I omit?

      • Kristina March 10, 2021

        the flaxseed is there for fiber and nutrition. It will still work without it, enjoy!
