Today I will share with you my favourite gluten-free crispy thin pizza crust recipe. This cracker-like pizza crust is very versatile because you can also use it as flatbread or slice it into small squares and use it for appetizers with various toppings. For the pizza sauce, I included a simple recipe below. However, if you are short on time, use a gluten-free ready-made sauce from a jar.

When making a gluten-free crispy pizza crust with yeast, it is essential to par-bake the crust before adding the toppings.

toppings for thin crust pizza…

Today I decided to make a vegetarian pizza. So I used spinach, mushrooms, onions and jalapeno peppers in addition to freshly made pizza sauce and cheese. The toppings are optional; it all depends on what you love on your pizza. So, feel free to add one or up to four toppings in addition to the sauce and cheese.

I find that adding more than four toppings, the flavours start to blend, and you lose the freshness and individual tastes of the toppings.

To layer the toppings and keep all the flavours harmonized, I first spread the crust with the sauce. Then, I scattered some of the cheese over the sauce—about half a cup. Next come the toppings, and always finish with cheese.

By following these few steps, you will get a perfectly crispy thin pizza crust, and the toppings will compliment each other instead of blending into one flavour.
